SE­RIES III

88” AND 109” 1971 – 1985

Land Rover Monthly - - Price Check -

A DECADE ago there were plenty of cheap and cheer­ful Se­ries IIIS. Not any more, but you can still find sen­si­bly-priced restora­tion projects. SIIIS still make af­ford­able ev­ery­day mo­tors, as parts are rea­son­ably priced and read­ily avail­able. The sim­plic­ity of the de­sign makes them ideal for the home me­chanic. Tidy orig­i­nals com­mand higher prices. The Stage One V8 is par­tic­u­larly sought-af­ter. Look af­ter your Se­ries III and it will hold its value. Diesels slug­gish. BUYER’S TIP: There are still a few bar­gains out there. SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS 2.25 petrol/diesel and trans­mis­sions as Se­ries IIA, 2.6 six-cylin­der pro­duced up to 1979.

1979-1985 Stage One V8 (109 only): 3.5-litre V8 petrol, 91 bhp, 166 lb-ft torque. LT95 four-speed man­ual with per­ma­nent 4WD.

PRICE GUIDE Poor: £800 – £2300 Av­er­age: £2300 – £3800 Good: £3800 – £6000 Ex­cel­lent: £6000 – £14,000+
