Land Rover Series 3 109" Camper Conversion 44,000 Miles from New


Land Rover Series 3 109" Camper Conversion

A Rare Opportunity to Acquire an Exceptionally Original, & Very Desirable 1979 Series III Land Rover 109" Camper Conversion

Just 44,000 miles from new. First registered 6th December 1979. Finished in deep bronze green, with matching limestone/green seats and roof.

XCK 504V comes with lots of paperwork including invoices, old mots which shows the very small increase in mileage every year. The mileage is warranted.

Unique in such original condition and we think this is one of the lowest mileage best original un-restored 1979 examples available.

A very rare find indeed and a very well thought out camper conversion.


When we acquired XCK 504V we where amazed to find the body and paint finish is 100% original, and way above the average 41 year old Series III Land Rover. However, XCK 504V is not your average Series III Land Rover, it is extraordinary. The vehicle has benefited from a light polish over all the panels. All the galvanising is in excellent condition.

The rivets on the rear panels were never finished in body colour when they left the factory this is how it remains on this vehicle.

The bulkhead is exceptionally solid and original, in fact as good as we have ever seen including both original footwells.

The underside has been steam cleaned and then repaint to preserve the original chassis, which still has all the original outriggers and rear crossmember. You can still see the factory overspray under the bonnet, wings and rear body this is exactly how they left the factory. No welding is required anywhere on this vehicle and it is now ready to go.


Exemplary - by far the best original Land Rover Series III.

The dash is unmarked with no cracks or sun damage there are no additional holes anywhere.

A CB radio is fitted, carbon monoxide monitor, auxiliary battery and split charge system. The door tops are in good condition and the roof is the same with triplex glass throughout the back door.

In the back the vehicle has had no expense spared it is fitted with a night heater, sink, water tank, gas stove, folding bed, fold down seat, there are lots of cupboards which have been fitted with plenty of useful storage space. There is also a control panel for all the accessories. No space has been wasted. The rood rack is in good condition, the vehicle has two spare wheels, ladders, awning and led spot lamps.


One of the best original engine bays we have seen on a Series 3.

Original paint to engine block. It has the correct 2.6 6 cylinder engine which runs and drives perfectly with plenty of power and it much better than its predecessor. It also sounds fantastic with the upgraded side exit exhaust. Factory fitted inner mud shields unusually still both in place and are intact. For added peace of mind a immobiliser is also fitted to the vehicle.


The factory fitted engine busts into life on the turn of the key. It is apparent that this is a vehicle that has been maintained and covered low mileage it runs as quiet and smooth as any Series Land Rover that we have ever had. All paperwork is supplied to warrant the vehicle's mileage from new.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will be supplied with a full 12-month MOT with no advisories. It will also be fully serviced. Four wheel drive and low range engage, as they should. The gears change up and down as they should it has a very quiet gearbox which is a good sign of its light use and good maintenance over the years.


XCK 504V is an unmolested Series 3 Hardtop in immaculate original condition with some brilliant upgrades. Which will make it great fun to use to go anywhere camping. All the numbers match - the chassis numbers on the plates are the same as on the log book registration document and that stamped on the chassis itself. The engine number also matches that recorded on the logbook.

This is one of the best low mileage and original untouched Series 3 we have ever had the opportunity to own with a very nice history.

This Land Rover has obviously been cared for and cherished by its owner and no expense spared on maintenance. The whole camper conversion has been very well though out and no space has been wasted. It would cost thousands to have one built to this specification and quality.

It is a very solid example that requires no work and is ready to use and enjoy.

What you see is what you get. XCK 504V retains much of its original paint finish - albeit with a few aged dings, scratches and marks. Please therefore do not expect absolutely pristine. However, you will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle.

Opportunities to purchase a genuine, original, low mileage vehicle don't often come up so please don't miss this one.
