1974 Land Rover Series III 88"

Tidy and appealing Series III with canvas top that starts and runs sweetly; driven to the sale; ready to be enjoyed

Dating from January 1974 this tidy red Series III Land Rover 88” is thought to have been a Fire Chief’s vehicle (according to a note on file from the vendor) and looks to be in super order. Starting promptly and running very sweetly as we moved it around for these images it had an instant ‘likeability’ about it.

The underside looks tidy as with the bodywork and interior, with limited signs of age/use in the rear load area and to the canvas roof.

Under the bonnet, we find the time served 2,286cc four-cylinder petrol engine. 

The history file for the Series III includes the V5C recording four previous owners to our vendor, a private collector, a bill from Interpro Automotive Ltd/LongLife for a rolling road tune and set up after fitment of a LongLife stainless exhaust at 67,229 miles in April 2019 at a cost of some £1,354, bills for various bulbs, oil filter housing and two old MOTs, the last of which expired in May 2020 during the Covid pandemic recording just one minor advisory for steering box seepage OSF – however the vehicle is of course Tax and MOT exempt.

Thanks to the recent fitment of a new carb, this Landy is ready to be enjoyed for both work or play.
