A very genuine British Army Series three 12v 3/4 Tonne Utility truck. One of the last of the venerable and unsophisticated series models.According to the copy of the original Record logs which I have it was originally issued to the Army at Ashchurch on 24th Jan 1983 as 85 KA 97, it saw service with 3 Para from February to November 1984, then 2 Para in February March 1989. Originally painted in A6 Olive Drab It was sand painted at some stage. Also as the speedometer/odometer is in KMs it must presumably have been ordered primarily for European or maybe Cyprus basing. The engine is still the original preserved colour with stencilled preserved date as you can see in the photo. It has recently had a stainless steel exhaust and new Michelin front tyres.
In the 5 years I have had it it has passed every MOT. I keep it covered and the cover is included in the sale. It starts every time and the engine runs very sweetly. The clutch and gearbox are very easy to use and the Low ratio and 4WD selection all works perfectly and engages and releases correctly and easily. Electrics are pretty original with the central lighting controller still in use.
There is a cab rear canvas divider and also the original gun racks. There are two foldup bench seats in the rear and also the original side lockers with covers. The front seats have been updated to more recent Defender style. As far as I can see the bulkhead is good as are the cab floors see photos.The chassis looks to have had rustproofing at some stage and hence is solid with just little bits of surface rust as far as I can see and MOt reports. It has folding cab steps. The body panels seem original with enough minor marks to look original but not at all battered. The front and rear bumpers and overriders all very solid and it had front lifting/ towing eyes.
It has original Nato hitch and also a rear step for easier access. Any queries please contact me or you are welcome to come and view.
