I hate to say this, but it's nearly time that my Series and I parted ways. Being heavily modified, I'm not really certain how to stick a price on it. I could just stick it on eBay and see how it does, but I thought I'd ask the audience for their opinion. Specs: Series 3, 88 with a truck cab. Rebuild completed about 3 years ago. Chassis totally done over, numerous coats of primer/paint etc. Originally with a V8, but since swapped for a TDI - see below. Bulkhead repaired. New brakes/lines/master/slaves. Parabolic springs Monroe gas dampers New fuel tank PAS conversion R380 + 300 TDi Remote oil cooler Series wings, but Defender bonnet/grill to get everything to fit. TD5 instrument cluster. Otherwise, standard She's a good solid reliable (Yes!) truck. She's noisy, uncomfortable and difficult to drive - just like every other Series. There are a few dents and dings, and she's a bit ragged around the edges - just like a Series should be. However, the TDi+R380 means that she will keep up with traffic and do about 350 miles on a surprisingly small tank of diesel. That works out at about 35mpg. Totalling up what I've spent over the years, it must be nearly £8k. So, the question: What would you pay for this truck? A standard series, with a modern twist? http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=22985 http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=74013&st=20#entry656121
