I've been trying to work out the value of my series 3 recently and have in
the past looked a several Land Rover similar to yours. If everything is
solid and works as it should and any modifications, like the engine etc.
have been finished to a good standard then from what I've seen advertised
and looked at in the past then probably around £3500 (poss. £4000)may be a
good place to start.
I've found that things like poor paint work, small dents and scrapes don't
make too much difference (depends on the buyer really).
Your gearbox will probably reduce its value a bit, its not something that
can be repaired as a running repair sort of thing. I would imagine that
someone looking at a Land Rover like yours is wanting something that is
fairly reliable and can be used for what Land Rovers are built for
straightaway but with some bits and pieces that can be tinkered with and
improved (as you do with Land Rovers!)
