Description:

1975 Land Rover Other

My interests have changed due to outside circumstances so I have reluctantly decided to sell my 1975 Land Rover Series III Lightweight with a 200TDi diesel conversion. This is one of the nicest examples of a SIII Lightweight you will ever see in the US and having looked at hundreds in the UK I would put this one up to any in the UK as well.
If you are looking for an excellent Lightweight with Diesel conversion in the US - you really need to take a look at this one.


I have a 200 or so photos of the Lightweight prior to restoration, uring the restoration, nd post restoration and these can be located at http://s1166.photobucket.com/user/boxerboy22/library/ they are not as organized as I would like, ut newest are generally first and oldest last.
Also included is probably every part needed to make this right hand drive vehicle into a left hand drive. After purchasing all the bits I really found that driving on the wrong side was really not that bad so I never dove into the project. I do not think that I have put on more than 1,000 miles on the truck since I have purchased it so it is essentially in the same condition as it came out of the container - which is beautiful.
I can be reached via email if you need additional information...I am truly sad to see this really cool truck leave my possession. Lightweight is located in Boston area.
