I have (nearly) got a Series Three

Exmoor Beast

Recommended Posts

Thanks to a mammoth boingey rope and winching session with that fine Exmoorcop chap I nearly have a Series Three!

It was well stuck at the bottom of a valley providing a home for dozens of mice!

Now it is free and awaiting a trailer toget it home.

It needs a bit of work but nothing major (hopefully)

Galv chassis, 7 cloth seats in fine order, carpets are muddy but newish.




What do you think folks? I won't say what I paid for it as it will spoil Christmas ;)

oops sorry the pics are a bit big, at least you can have a close look at how good it is ;)

Will :)

The Highlander door stripes are interesting - in my March 96 LRW (!) there's a feature on 'Highlander's, rebuilt by Mike Shaw LandRovers of Haytor Vale, Devon.

He steam cleaned them, strip to chassis and bulkhead for inspection and any corrosion is attacked at that stage. Petrols got a new alternator, starter and carb. Inside they got inertia seat belts, door trips and 110 door mirrors, as well as freewheel hubs, 8-spokes and the stripes on the outside.

Overall, customers paid him for a gentle rebuild so it ought to go for a good few years yet!
