I bought a series 3 as my first car
« on: November 10, 2019, 03:50:32 PM »
Hi my name is James, I live in Sydney and I bought an ex military series 3 Land Rover to restore as my first car. Are there any Land Rover meetings happening soon, I was planning on going to the Corowa Swim in next year but I am unable to because of school. My vehicle is very original apart from the hard top. Does anyone know where I can look at another series 3 Land Rover similar to mine for reference. I found my car in the registery and a comment next to it saying there was an photo of it in the national archives which I have since retrieved, thank you to the person who put it there.

Welcome James.

Have fun with your Series 3!

Can you point us at the ARN and chassis number for your vehicle, please, and the Archives image reference? 

Thanks

Mike

The old girl looks like a good starting point. There are plenty of parts suppliers around, and tons of knowledge here.
 I have ARN 28-918 and have had to search the forum a few times to find out how things go.
