1982 Land Rover Series III Hi Capacity Pickup

SOLD £3,418

Replacement chassis just fitted; running and driving with just a few minor cosmetics to complete; the last truck you will ever need

Since its arrival onsite, we have discovered that this unusual Hi Cap diesel was sold by us back in 1998.

It had spent most of its life on a large Estate in Shropshire having clearly led a busy life working on the farms. Its new owner intended to restore it to its former glory, but never quite got round to getting on with the job, by which time the chassis was in a very parlous state.

He passed it to the vendor who is always up for a new project. He organised to have the chassis replaced which has now been completed - the body having been lifted away and a replacement (excellent but possibly not new) chassis fitted. This has included work to the brakes with new cylinders etc and new shock absorbers and fixings too.

A change in plan has meant that he is no longer committed to finishing the job - which is where you come in. The vehicle does need some more work, but all basic and simple Land Rover stuff. The underpinnings and (most) of the panel work is perfectly serviceable.

The engine starts and runs - we have even used it for several small jobs while it has been with us onsite and the brakes, although largely new, will need some bleeding and adjustment. Available for the cost of the replacement parts and chassis replacement alone, this rare pickup would make a really useful tool around your own Estate in the country, or as a general workhorse if you haven't got one of those.

There is no paperwork supplied with the vehicle and the registration number is no longer on the DVLA database - presumably because it spent so much time untaxed in its early days.
