The Land Rover series I, II, and III (commonly referred to as series Land Rovers, to distinguish them from later models) are off road vehicles produced by the British manufacturer Landrover. The Land Rover was the first mass-produced civilian four wheel drive car with doors on it and in 1992, Land Rover claimed that 70% of all the vehicles they had built were still in use.
The series III had the same body and engine options as the preceding IIa, including station wagons and the 1 Ton versions. Little changed cosmetically from the IIA to the series III. The series III is the most common series vehicle, with 440,000 of the type built from 1971 to 1985. The headlights were moved to the wings on late production IIA models from 1968/9 onward (ostensibly to comply with Australian, American and Dutch lighting regulations) and remained in this position for the series III. The traditional metal grille, featured on the series I, II and IIA, was replaced with a plastic one for the series-III model. During the series-III production run from 1971 until 1985, the 1,000,000th Land Rover rolled off the production line in 1976.
First registered on March 14th 1972, this wonderful example remained with its original keeper for 43 years until he passed away in 2015. His wife then sold it on to a local gentleman who bought it both for its charm and its investment potential. However another interesting vehicle has presented itself and upon orders from the wife, this must go before another can be bought! Supplied complete with a folder full of paperwork including the original Landrover Service book with some charming hand written notes, the original order and correspondence from Henleys, a good history including full detail of a restoration in 2004 and finally a stack of old MOTs detailing the very low usage.
