- Rare in this condition

A batch of Series 3 General Service Land Rovers were selected by the Australian Army to be converted into 'Specialist Ceremonial Vehicles' to undertake wreath carrying and funeral carriage towing duties.

They featured a Holden engine paired to an automatic gearbox. This had the effect of rendering this two-wheel drive vehicle. The engines were converted to run on gas and were fitted with a custom exhaust. This vehicle was identified in the Australian Army as ARN32-218 and presents in good condition overall being fully operational today. The car has aged gracefully, with a colour scheme that's period-correct, the paint remains in great condition. All the external trim, and glass also present well.

The Land Rover Series III was brought out in 1973 and most obviously had a new plastic grille and a plastic dashboard. Apart from this it also offered a spacious cabin that offered more legroom making the driving position more comfortable. The SIII also became more refined with the heater becoming a standard fit and door trims being introduced as an option at production. In 1980 the complete power train was strengthened and 1982 saw the more civilised “County” spec, aimed at the leisure market. Production ceased in 1985.
