ACTUAL VIN# E50124890

NOTE:  THIS VEHICLE IS LOCATED IN DENIA, SPAIN, but I ship to the USA.  Please check my feedback, and please read the entire listing before bidding.

I am an American, living in Spain, and I sell and export vehicles to the USA regularly.  Although shipping costs are not included in the price of the sale, I work every month with an established worldwide shipper and will work directly with the buyer to arrange delivery to the USA.  I will drop the vehicle off at the port of Valencia for you at no additional cost, prepare all the proper documentation for shipping to the USA, and handle all the US customs and importation on the USA side.  

If you would like me to handle the shipping, customs paperwork, and everything for you, the cost is a flat-rate of $1900, port-to-port, to your choice of New York, Baltimore, MD, Jacksonville, FL or Freeport (Galveston), TX.  No additional costs.  No work on your part.  You just pick the car up from the port, fully cleared and released.

Once the vehicle is in your possession, you will also have all the documents you need to register the car in any of 49 states (California excepted).  I can even arrange transportation within the USA, from the port to your driveway.  In short, I am here to help with every step of the process of delivering this vehicle to you.

You are of course welcome to fly here and test the car for yourself before you bid, but if that is not feasible, I will be happy to take additional photos, videos, etc. and send them to you.  Whatever you need.  We can speak on the telephone, or by Skype, so you can see the vehicle in real time before you bid.

If you have any questions, please ask and I will post as many answers here as possible.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

Still lovely from an older restoration, this Series III 88 is rust free, beautiful from every angle and needs nothing.

Exterior and interior were stripped and repainted approximately three years ago in the original Marine Blue color, then reassembled using original parts when excellent and new parts when necessary.  Bodywork is straight and free of filler, and the paintwork is of a good standard.  All doors close and latch correctly and new weatherseal is in place where appropriate.  The removable canvas roof is new with galvanized hoops, and the original galvanized beltline trim is in original and excellent condition.  The Limestone wheels wear recent tires and the spare wheel - repainted recently - can be mounted in the rear cargo compartment or hood mounted as desired.

Inside, new "deluxe" three-abreast seats are perfect and foams are firm.  The rest of the interior is as spartan and utilitarian as a Series III gets, but with everything charmingly original and functioning as it should.  There are currently no rear jump seats fitted, but two folding 2-person benches can be installed before shipping at very slight additional cost.

The frame is entirely straight and rust free, with no dents or signs of previous off roading.  There is no rust in the longitudinals, cross members, pickup points, floors, doors, or bulkheads.

Inside and out, top and bottom, it has wonderful curb appeal and looks as good as you are likely to find in an 88 of this vintage.  A wonderful example of a desirable 88, in a classic color combination, and is ready for any use you care to put it to.  The canvas roof can be kept down for weather protection, the sides rolled up for more airflow, or it can be removed entirely in minutes for full open motoring.



WHAT'S IT LIKE TO DRIVE?

With minimal warming of the glow plugs required, the rugged little Rover two-and-a-quarter diesel fires easily and settles into a comfy idle with only (normal) minor initial smoke which disappears quickly as the engine warms and never returns.  Select first, engage the clutch and off you go.

Torquey and responsive to the throttle, the 88 leaps off the line and revs eagerly through the gears all the way up to its gearing-limited top cruising speed of about 80 kph. The steering, typically heavy at parking speeds, immediately lightens up underway and is direct with no slop, the clutch travel is perfect, the gearchange snicks from cog to cog with the precision of a rifle bolt, and the brakes stop powerfully with a firm and easily-modulated pedal.  It's an easy Landy to drive, and feels great on road or off, with performance adequate for keeping up  with modern traffic on all but the fastest roadways.

All gauges, lights and switches work as intended, and the vehicle has recently passed the rigorous Spanish safety inspection without issue.

It is a lovely driver.  Simple to own, simple to operate, and simple to maintain.  These 88's are eminently maneuverable on road or off, and with the legendary Land Rover agility in tough terrain, this Series III would make a fantastic adventure vehicle for reaching that remote fishing hole, surf break, camp site, or rustic English pub across town.
