Description LAND ROVER LIGHTWEIGHT series 3 V8 PERMINANT 4X4

Hi LET ME TELL A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE LIGHTWEIGHT EVOLVED, IT DID SERVICE WITH THE MOD FROM 1975- 1981 WHEN IT WAS DEMOBBED AND WENT INTO THE CIVILIAN MARKET AND HAD DIFFERENT OWNERS FOR A TIME IT WAS A STANDARD LIGHTWEIGHT UNTILL THE LAST OWNER WHO PURCHASED IT IN 1993 HE STORED THE VEHICLE IN A GARAGE UNUSED UNTIL 2008 WHEN HE DISMANTLED IT FULLY AND STARTED TO CARRY OUT A FULL NON STANDARD REBUILD, I PURCHASED IT FROM HIM LAST YEAR AS AN UNFINISHED PROJECT THE ONLY REASON HE SOLD IT TO ME  WAS THAT HE NEEDED TO PUT THE MONEY INTO HIS NEW BUSINESS VENTURE AND I COULD SEE HE WAS GENUINELY UPSET IN HAVING TO SELL HIS PRIDE AND JOY AFTER OWNING IT FOR 21 YEARS AND PUTTING HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME AND MONEY IN TO THIS PROJECT ( THIS GUY WORKED FOR LAND ROVER IN SOME CAPACITY).
THIS VEHICLE BUILD HAS BEEN KEPT CLOSE TO A SERIES 3 LIGHTWEIGHT BUT WITH THE ADDED POWER OF A V8 AND RANGE ROVER 4 SPEED GEARBOX AND DIFFS.  
LIKE I WAS SAYING I HAVE HAD IT FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND IN THIS TIME I HAVE FINISHED IT OFF WITH AGAIN LOTS OF TIME AND MONEY IT IS NOW AT A POINT WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE USED AND ENJOYED .IT JUST NEEDS AN MOT OF WHICH I CANT SEE ANY PROBLEMS AS MOST OF IT IS NEW.
YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHY I AM SELLING ? AND THATS SIMPLE I AM A NUT THATS LIKES WORKING ON SUCH PROJECTS IN BETWEEN MY STRESSFUL JOB AS A FORM OF ESCAPISM AND CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT PROJECT. I AM AWAY AGAIN VERY SOON WITH MY JOB SO ITS UP FOR SALE AS SIMPLE AS THAT. IF IT DOES NOT REACH A FAIR PRICE IT WILL GO BACK INTO ITS GARAGE . . ..... I CANT BE ANY FAIRER THAN THAT.
 IT ALL NEEDS IS TO BE RUN IN AND USED AS ITS BEEN AN ON- GOING REBUILD SINCE 2008 TO PRESENT DAY.
