Land Rover Series 3, West County Explorers Club

This fully restored 1984 Land Rover Series III 109 wagon was listed on ebay this summer. I haven’t seen that many long-wheelbase two-doors. The truck looks stunning in grey with cream steel wheels.

Here’s what the ad had to say:

During the process of the restoration the car was fully dismantled and all automobile components, frame, engine, transmission, body details, wiring, brake system and cooling system has been checked and rebuilt.

All components have been cleaned from dust, rust and the old layer of color. After cleaning the metal components were galvanized, covered with powder color or colored. All aluminum body panels were cleared from old color and covered with qualitative primer, which shields it from oxidation.

The floor, the roof, the engine cover and the doors have been lined with sound-proof panels. Individual roof side and floor lining has been set up.

Regulation of valves, carburetor, wheel alignment, brakes, manual brakes and front lamps, as well as tire balancing has been carried out.

A 500km long test ride has been made with the automobile, after the test ride, a technical test has been carried out and regulation was checked no defects were found.

The automobile is in excellent technical and visual condition, it is ready to participate in road traffic or increase a collection.

The asking price was $49,000 and the truck was located in Latvia, in eastern Europe.

I spotted this 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 88 Utility on ebay yesterday. The seller states that it was treated to a $50k, frame-off restoration in 2000 at the British Northwest Land Rover Company, and has taken four Best in Class awards since that time. Better-than-new upgrades include dual gas tanks, leather seats, stainless steel exhaust, and gearing to allow 70-mph highway cruising.

This classic, soft-top Land Rover was finished in marine blue and features a 2.25-liter, four-cylinder, gasoline engine. Total mileage is just over 51,000, with 4,000 having been driven since the restoration. The condition really does look fantastic.

The vehicle is located in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Bidding currently stands at $14,600 with an unmet reserve. There are about eight days left on the auction. More photos below.

Update 5/19/2013: This Land Rover sold for a high bid of $34,250.

This looks like quite a nice rarity, a fully restored 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 109, that’s been re-powered with an intercooled Cummins 4BT turbo diesel engine. In addition to the roof rack, it’s fitted with a custom bumper, 8,000-lb Warn winch, and dual fuel tanks. From the sound of the ad and the look of the photos, this is a first-class truck.

Can you imagine yourself sitting in that clean, purposeful interior as you rumble across the terrain? The seller is asking $31,000. More images below. The seller offers a full write-up on his blog.

There’s a new rally car in town, a pint-sized, single-seat racer based on the engine and running gear of an ATV. Order the kit for $7500 and you can build one of these “Formula Cross” machines yourself. Kits will be available for Honda and Yamaha-based ATVs from 450 to 700 cc.

A racing series is planned for 2013. Think of it as a farm league for the big-time rally world, or just the rally equivalent of karting. If racing’s your thing, the Formula Cross site has templates for designing your own racing livery and an informative page on pitching sponsors.

This fantastic looking Land Rover Series III has been equipped for overlanding and has been treated to a frame-off restoration, according to the listing on ebay. It appears to have been finished better than new with interior wood trim and leather seats. Camping equipment includes a stove, fridge, chemical toilet, a 40-liter water tank and dual fuel tanks. Mechanical equipment includes a generator under the hood, an old-school capstan winch on the front bumper, and a 2,500-lb boat winch on the rear. The rear was also fitted with a fold-down tailgate and swing-up hatch. The roof opens for access to the tent (now damaged according to the ad), hunting, and general sight seeing.

This same vehicle was for sale last fall on ebay, though I don’t know if or how the sale ended. It’s listed at $32,000. The concurrent auction stands at $15,000 with the reserve unmet.

More photos after the jump.

Update: The truck only generated one $15,000 bid before the auction closed.
