1983 Land Rover S3 88"
usable late model S3 in tidy, usable order with Overdrive
Dating from August 1983 this later model Series 3 88"
looks like a good usable old truck, and according to MOT records online has
covered only around 3,000 miles in the last 12 years. It comes with a current
MOT valid until February 2021 with no advisories recorded showing 13,809 miles
which we can assume to be 113,809 given its age and the odometer resets at
Looking appealing in that lovable utilitarian style with
its grey lower bodywork and white van top the truck started and ran well as we
moved it around for these images. The rear load area has been fitted out with
checker plate to help protect the floor and wheel arches adding to the appeal
and usability with bench seat. The cab looks tidy enough with a smart set of
three vinyl seats and desirable overdrive. Under the bonnet we find the 2286cc
petrol four with a couple of obviously new parts fitted including coil and carb.
The underside shows the usual signs of surface corrosion
with a few areas that might require a bit of attention, but it looks like most
Land Rovers of this period (see images) and shouldn’t present too many problems
for the dab hand.
This s3 comes with its V5C and current MOT
