Land Rover Series 3 109" Hard Top 1975 Only 19,000 Miles From New

A Rare Opportunity to Acquire an Exceptionally Original, Unmolested & Very Desirable 1975 Series III Land Rover 109" Long Wheel Base.

Just 19,000 miles from new. First registered 1st March 1975. This vehicle has only had 2 owners from new. The first was a chemical company who owned the vehicle until 1998, then the vehicle was owned privately until the vehicle came into our care.

Unique in such original condition and we think this is one of the lowest mileage best original un-restored 1975 examples available.

A very rare find indeed and one unlikely ever to be repeated - truly remarkable!

To find an unmolested example has become very hard, but to find one that has, only covered nineteen thousand miles, retains all of its original panels, its original chassis, engine, gearbox, interior and a majority all of its original factory paint finish well that's unheard of...............


BODYWORK

When we acquired HGY 430N we where amazed to find the body and paint finish is all original apart from the passenger side wing and door.

The wheels are body colour and the roof is finished in Limestone, which is factory correct for a 1975 Land Rover in Bronze Green. 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. We have used Owatrol oil on the bulkhead, front panel and wheels to preserve them.

Fitted with all original Lucas lights to both the front and rear.

You can still see the factory overspray under the bonnet, wings and rear body this is exactly how they left the factory. The vehicle has recently benefited from a new rear crossmember, no further welding is required anywhere on this vehicle and it is now ready to go.


INTERIOR

Exemplary - by far the best original Land Rover Series III. The original factory fitted front seat backs are in good condition as are the bases they have never been replaced and are the originals to the vehicle. The dash is unmarked with no cracks or sun damage.

The door tops are even the originals with Triplex glass something that is almost definitely replaced on all other Series 3 Land Rover. The roof is the same with triplex glass throughout.

The load area is clean with the correct mount for the spare wheel. Matching rear black vinyl bench seats can be fitted should the buyer wish, however we wanted to show how straight and unmolested the vehicle is.


UNDER THE BONNET

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

Original paint to engine block. It has the correct early 3 bearing crank engine which runs and drives perfectly with plenty of power.

Factory fitted inner mud shields unusually still both in place and are intact.


ON THE ROAD

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.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will be supplied with a full 12-month MOT with no advisories. 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.


SUMMARY

HGY 430N is an unmolested Series 3 Hard Top in immaculate original condition. 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. It is a very solid example that requires no work and is ready to use and enjoy.

If you are an investor you will already know the growing importance of original un-messed with condition for classic cars. What you see is what you get. HGY 430N 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.
