The series I, II and III Land Rover are off-road vehicles produced by the British manufacturer Rover Company. The first mass-produced civilian four-wheel drive car with doors and it was claimed by Land Rover that 70% of their vehicles were still in use in 1992.
Mostly featuring leaf-sprung suspension with selectable two or four wheel-drive, except series I’s produced between 1948 and mid 1951 had constant 4WD via a freewheel mechanism. The Stage 1 V8 version of the series III featured permanent 4WD. All of these models could be started with a hand crank at the front and had the option of front & rear power takeoffs for accessories.
This later series 3 example is presented in original specification, with the correct canvas tilt roof, radiator cover and bonnet-mounted spare wheel. Land- Rovers of this era are enduring classics which can be put to a multitude of uses, we are sure will be hugely enjoyable classic for all occasions.
