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.
