The iconic Land Rover Series I, II, and III are commonly referred to as ‘Series’ Land Rovers to distinguish them from later models. These easily recognisable vehicles were produced by the world famous Midland manufacturer from 1948 until 1985. Land Rover state that 70% of the vehicles are still in use today. A fantastic achievement for any motor manufacturer.
This fantastic 1982 Series III was originally registered in July 1982 and has more recently benefitted from a comprehensive restoration. The quality of which is easy to see. The car now presents wonderfully in Land Rovers original Pale Green colour that is complemented with a contrasting white roof and classic white steel wheels. The practical seat configuration of this iconic car consists of three individual seats in the front and inwards facing benches in the rear which are extremely user friendly. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, a file containing restoration documents, bills and receipts, this MoT test exempt Land Rover can be considered an appreciating British classic and as such is conservatively estimated.
