1982 Land Rover Series III

88in Series III with petrol engine; 57,000 miles showing

Probably the most useful Series Land Rover to own, a late 88-inch Station Wagon provides the smallholder, countryman or city dweller a practical and fun machine. The Series III was introduced in 1971, running through until 1985 when it was finally replaced by the coil sprung 90.

This useable handy petrol-powered Landy was first registered in July 1982. Our vendor bought the car recently from a deceased estate and the relatively low mileage is believed to be correct. It was seen in a barn, the owner, who had only sparingly used it for days out shooting, was having an unleaded head fitted. Sadly, when purchased, the head was still off, but all is now where it should be along with a new distributor fitted and it seems to trundle along pretty well.

Looking like a genuine practical late Series III, it is of course MOT exempt and was last put through a test in 2015. Relevant advisories can be seen online.

The bills on file all seem to relate to getting the car back on the road for use in c.2011 after a likely ‘stood still’ period before that.
