HYT 746W – 1981 Land Rover Series 3 Diesel – 36,200 miles from new ! It is extremely rare to find a good Diesel Series Land Rover – Most were used commercially (often on farms) when new, and few survive in good condition. Many others have had engine conversions with more modern diesel engines – which vary in quality and can be difficult to insure or find correct spares for. Also – the value in these old Land Rovers is in originality – having the “wrong” engine in would have a detrimental effect on future values. This particular example is a great survivor – having just emerged from 22 years in storage and has undergone a sympathetic re-commissioning, which included: Full respray inside and out in original colour (Marine Blue) Rust free chassis (paint finish – not daubed in thick layers of under seal) Rust free bulkhead New door tops and bottoms New deluxe vinyl front seats Brakes completely overhauled Pirelli 205 x 16 tyres (not cheap remolds !) Currently configured as a hard top, but as always with the versatility of the Land Rover design, could be converted to 7 seater with side windows, soft top or even pick up if required – please ask for details. If you are looking for an exce
This is a truly wonderful find and offers an unrepeatable opportunity. This original Land Rover 109 LWB has covered a genuine 89000 miles and comes with a full history since 1969. Our Land Rover has huge provenance and comes with a fabulous file detailing the vehicles usage, maintenance and interesting stories. It was supplied new in 1968 but soon changed hands and was purchased by five medical students in London and Belfast. OWD 934F was taken to North Africa in 1968 on a University first year summer vacation. Correspondence in the file confirms the Land Rover was a brilliant, reliable vehicle through North Africa and one of the students recalls servicing it twice on the trip, the second being carried out on the beach near Rabat in Morocco. The last meal with the Landy is also recorded, in a lay by near Paris late at night as they had decided to drive through the night to make the early morning ferry back to the UK. Photos and stories from the adventure are present in the history file. The Land Rover presents as a true time warp. Externally the paintwork survives in original condition and looks fabulous. There are certainly blemishes but the externals can only be admired consideri
Those of us in the car business love to throw around words like “Iconic”, “Legendary” and “Archetypal”. Perhaps it is because, as enthusiasts we feel so passionate about our favorite machines that we resort to trusty superlatives to describe them – however deserving (or not) the car may be of such praise. But there are some vehicles that pass beyond the borders of our beloved hobby and earn themselves a place as cultural icons. Usually, this comes courtesy of groundbreaking styling, sporting success, or in the case of the Land Rover, through faithful service in war and in the hands of those working the most rugged corners of Earth. The Land Rover was directly inspired by another cultural icon – the Jeep. Rover’s chief engineer Maurice Wilks, working on his family farm alongside his brother (and Rover’s Managing Director) Spencer, developed a prototype in 1947 based on a leftover Jeep chassis. The idea was for a vehicle that could serve in a military setting, or provide versatile and inexpensive transport for farmers and tradespeople. When it was introduced a year later, the Land Rover would become a near instant success. The chassis was a robust steel ladder-type with a full-time four-wheel-drive system. Due to post-war steel shortages, the body was constructed from aluminum which was much easier to source at the time. One notable benefit was that the body didn’t suffer from serious rust that similar steel bodies would. All early Land Rovers were painted varying shades of drab green – quite literally surplus paint used to finish aircraft cockpits during WWII. Initially, a 1600 cc petrol engine powered the Land Rover, with a 2000 cc diesel offered from 1957. Throughout production, a wide variety of body styles and configurations were offered to suit just about any imaginable situation. For farmers and industry, countless aftermarket PTO accessories could transform the trusty Landie into virtually any type of machine needed in the field. Its incredible toughness, dependability and versatility earned the Land Rover a place as one of the most valuable tools in a tradesman’s arsenal. For 1958, the Series II followed up on the foundation the first series had built. The speadbore four-cylinder petrol engine displaced 2.25 liters, and a revised 2.0 liter diesel became an ever more popular option. The Series II featured slightly revised styling and a raft of subtle improvements such as a wider track and improved suspension. Available in pickup, open top, or station wagon variants and with an 88” or 109” wheelbase, the Series II continued the tradition of amazing versatility and flexibility. It found favor around the globe, serving owners on virtually every continent. This charming 1961 Series II Land Rover is a short wheelbase (88”) station wagon that presents in very original condition. This right-hand drive wagon is delightfully well-preserved, showing what appears to be maybe one paint job in its lifetime, which now exhibits a wonderful patina that is perfectly appropriate for an old Land Rover. There are a few battle scars and a dent or two in the alloy body, which just adds to the appeal – like a well-used tool. Robust bumpers are fitted front and rear, and the plain white wheels are unadorned, with no frivolous trim or wheel covers. The spare wheel is mounted on the hood in traditional Land Rover fashion. Thanks to the four jump seats in the rear compartment, this little Landie will seat seven passengers. It seems almost absurd how today’s bulbous, oversized crossovers and SUV’s grow to enormous proportions to accommodate seven seats, when this little Landie can do it in the span of just an 88” wheelbase. Of course, a certain degree of comfort is sacrificed in the name of practicality, but it is still a testament to the efficient packaging of the original design. Passenger capacity aside, the interior is all business, yet presents in good order with tough gray vinyl covering the seats. The fixed rear roof features safari windows for some extra light and the front door windows are simple Perspex sliders. It is fitted with an optional heater and windscreen wipers should one encounter properly British weather while bouncing through a field. The engine bay is tidy and exhibits signs of maintenance, though it is pure function over form. The legendary 2.25 petrol engine runs strong and is a joy to motor around, perched high on the driver’s seat, peering through the split ‘screen. It isn’t fast, and the engine isn’t particularly sonorous, but there is a joy to driving and old Land Rover like this. While it is always nice to have a car that is fully restored and returned to showroom new condition, there is just something more appealing about a Landie in this kind of condition; a tough old machine that is proud to work and proud to show off the scars it’s earned through its life. s.

Land Rover had continued to update the original 1948 model from inception, and the Series III was the culmination of nearly thirty years of development and improvements. For the first time, they sought a new buyer demographic, amongst leisure users. The Series III had the same body and engine options as the preceding IIA and was little changed cosmetically from the IIA to the Series III, however, the III is the most common 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. The 2.25-litre engine had its compression raised from 7:1 to 8:1 increasing the power slightly although the high compression engine had been an optional fit on the IIa model for several years, During the Series III production run between 1971 and 1985, the 1,000,000th Land Rover rolled off the line in 1976.;First registered on 19th March 1973, this Series III Land Rover has had, incredibly, just one owner from new. Having been supplied initially by Land Rover dealer, MJ Fews, this Series III has been enjoyed by the same gentleman for all 43 years of its life and is in very original condition, even down to the original radio. It has a beautiful patina both inside and out, and we are told the engine and gearbox all run smoothly. It has retained the original 'wing mounted' mirrors, however, more modern mirrors and an extra brake light have been added to assist with modern driving conditions. All the panels seem true, but there is evidence of occasional brushes with the scenery, which is, as I understand it, is exactly what Land Rovers are for! The removable hard-top is easily switchable with a canvas rag-top. Past MOTs and an invoice going back to 1997, show that this Series III has done less than 3,000 miles in the last 20 years, making this a remarkable vehicle. Cosmetically, there is a bit to go at, but that shouldn't matter. She is a bit like your favourite Granny; no longer wearing her 'Sunday Best' but totally reliable and always pleased to see you. One to keep.
This stunning, fully rebuilt Series I Land Rover 107 was built on the 16th December 1955 and was supplied for the RHD Home Market. VXS 198 was finished Grey from the factory and sold new by Spurling Motor Bodies Ltd, Colchester, Essex. We have a British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate confirming a 2 litre petrol engine was Factory Fitted Equipment and the Label (line) number of the vehicle was 617. The Land Rover has spent the majority of its life in a warm climate, coming back to the UK from Malta during 2016. From paperwork with the vehicle, we believe this Pick Up was exported to Malta in 1964 and has had seven owners before coming back to the UK. During 2016 the Land Rover was shipped back to the UK and has since been MOT tested and re-registered so is now back on UK plates. VXS 198 is beautifully finished and has been subject of a major restoration in Malta. The Land Rover has had very little use since and has come to us in stunning order. The paint finish and bodywork is exceptional, the underside gleaming with a beautiful chassis and underbody. The interior has been fully re-trimmed and the 'Landy' mechanically overhauled. Having not been used since restoration, £2300 ha
(SOLD) This vehicle was one of the last production runs in late 1968, and was therefore titled as a 1969 due to its delivery date, but bears all the specifications of a 1968 Land Rover. It has had minimal owners since new and previously received a frame off restoration with all systems gone through and documented with photos. It has been maintained in its original condition. The body is all aluminum, fitted with galvanized steel bracing for protection, a heavy box frame for strength, high gear range and rear wheel drive for open road cruising, low gear range for climbing and descending with 4 wheel drive for still more traction. It has been recently serviced by Land Rover professionals as documented by receipts. It is accompanied by an original tool kit, owners’ manuals, instruction booklet, photo album of restoration, and original brochures. This is a true classic all-terrain vehicle that is very sought after for its rarity, and collectability.
