Description


SERIES LAND ROVER RECENTLY HAVE BROUGHT UPWARDS OF $35,000 TO $60,000. THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A 1961 SERIES IIIA RHD LAND ROVER. THE BODIES OF THESE ROVERS ARE ALL ALUMINUM AND THE CHASIS ARE STEEL.
I’VE DECIDED TO PUT UP FOR SALE MY LAND ROVER THAT I BOUGHT HERE IN KENTUCKY A YEAR AGO. ITS BEEN MY “GO TO” TRUCK TO DRIVE FOR THIS LAST YEAR. ITS JUST A CAREFREE TRUCK AND THE MOTOR RUNS GREAT. IT HAS DRIPS OF OIL EVERY NOW AND AGAIN …..WHICH THEY ALL HAVE.
THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS AS IT SHOULD. THE FOUR WHEEL DRIVE WORKS HIGH AND LOW. THE EXTERIOR IS JUST THE WAY ITS BEEN FOR A GOOD MANY YEARS. IN THE STILL PICTURES I’VE SHOWN YOU SOME OF THE FLAWS IN THE PAINT AND BODY. THE PAINT HAS A FEW BLEMISHES AROUND BUT NOTHING TO MAJOR. IT GIVES THE TRUCK CHARACTER
IT COMES WITH A FULL HARD TOP, BUT YOU COULD PURCHASE A SOFT TOP FOR IT. IT ACHIEVES SPEEDS OF 50-55 MPH. IT HAS DECENT NEW TIRES. THE PASSENGER WINDSCREEN WIPER IS NOT WORKING. THE ODOMETER IS CURRENTLY NOT WORKING, HOWEVER IT WAS WORKING WHEN I PURCHASE THE VEHICLE A YEAR AGO SO TH MILEAGE SHOULD BE CLOSE. IT DOES HAVE A SMITHS ROUND HEATER. PARTS I HAVE BUT OR NOT CURRENTLY INSTALLED (THESE ITEMS GO WITH THE ROVER)I DO HAVE THE DUCTWORK AND DEFROST PANS FOR THE HEATER. I ALSO HAVE 4 REAR LAP-BELTS AND THE CENTER FRONT LAP-BELT.
ON INSPECTION, WHEN I BOUGHT IT, I DID FIND A FEW RUST ISSUES. SEE PICTURESNOTHING TO MAJOR.
I'M SURE MANY OF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE QUESTIONS. PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS. I REMIND YOU, THIS 54 YEAR OLD TECHNOLOGY WILL REQUIRE MAINTENANCE AND TWEEKING. DON'T EXPECT TO HAVE A MAINTENANCE FREE "NEW CAR" EXPERIENCE AND WORKING ON THESE OLD CLASICS IS HALF THE FUN. THANKS FOR LOOKING! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WOULD LIKE A MORE IN-DEPTH DESCRIPTION PLEASE EMAIL ME. THIS IS A GREAT VECHILE THAT I WOULD DRIVE ANYWHERE.
A $1000.00 DEPOSIT WILL BE REQUIRED WITHIN 24 HOURS AFTER CLOSE OF AUCTION
IF THE WINNING BIDDER DOES NOT CONTACT ME WITHIN 24 HOURS AFTER THE END OF THE AUCTION, I WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONTACT THE SECOND HIGHEST BIDDER WITH A SECOND CHANCE OFFER
PLEASE NOTE!
IF YOU ARE THE WINNING BIDDER PLEASE BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTION, IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO WE WILL USE EVERY MEANS ALLOWED BY EBAY TO COLLECT OUR MONEYS, ALSO ANY INSPECTIONS ARE TO BE DONE 24 HOURS BEFORE THE END OF AUCTION. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING.
I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION WHEN BUYING A USED CAR YOU CAN EXPECT SOME WEAR AND TEAR. A USED CAR THAT IS ONLY 3 YEARS OLD WOULD SHOW MUCH LESS WEAR AND TEAR THAN ONE THAT WOULD BE 10 YEARS OLD ECT, ECT.
