Description

The ubiquitous land Rover steadily progressed from a single offering to a family of long and short wheelbase derivatives with an ever increasing choice of engines. The Series III of 1971-1985 is the most common, of which 440,000 were produced. Outwardly it was almost identical the IIA, but the diesel version benefited from a higher compression ratio and the gearbox from synchromesh on all ratios, while the cab featured a more modern, moulded plastic facia. The vendor informs us that this very pretty matching numbers example has covered just 50,000 miles from new. It is immaculately presented in White over Blue and powered by the standard specification 2.25-litre diesel engine of the period. In recent years it has served as a 'weekend toy' for taking to shows etc. Registered as an historic vehicle, it is currently regarded by the vendor as having 'very good' bodywork, paintwork, Black interior trim, engine and transmission.
