SERIES III

Land Rover Monthly - - Pricecheck -

88” AND 109”, 1971 TO 1985

SERIES IIIS aren't the cheap and cheer­ful en­try-level Land Rovers they used to be, but you can still find sen­si­bly-priced restora­tion projects. SIIIS 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.
