1971 Series III 109" Cab-chassis with Tray

SOLD £8,960

A useful and very well preserved Ozzy Tray-Back; not your average 49 year old Landy; highly original and on the button; one for the serious collector

It is a mystery why it took the UK market so long to latch onto the mighty pickup - but boy has it done so now. In Australia of course, the 'beaut ute' is a way of life and Land Rover did well selling their range as chassis cabs for local bodywork.

Being a practical bunch, the Australians favoured the Aluminium Tray-Back - giving maximum payload with a low load height and large load area. This is one such vehicle.

Sourced from the state of Victoria, the climate has been kind and its owner/s have really cared for it - the truck retaining a great deal of originality yet remaining in really nice order.

It has been running and driving while on-site and has clearly had some chassis cleaning and painting (that's saved a job) done to protect it against our climate.

It was sent to Australia as a CKD kit for local assembly and uses the familiar 2,286cc four-cylinder engine. Sadly, we are not blessed with a large file of paperwork to know its history overseas. What we do know is that it arrived back in the UK in 2017 and is one of the more interesting Series Land Rovers that we have had through our hands. It has the correct NOVA number to prove that all taxes and duties have been covered so UK registration should be straightforward.

The photographs give a very clear indication of its overall condition and we think you would struggle to find a more original and unmolested example.
