DON’T FANCY A SIII? WHAT ABOUT A…
Series I or Series II/IIA
Even the youngest Series Land Rover is more than 34 years years old now, so it should come as no surprise that corrosion can be seriously problematic. The chassis and bulkhead are the bits to look at, especially the hidden area atop the rails over the rear axle. However, these are fantastic ‘slow road’ vehicles and everyone ought to own at least one in their lifetime.
Many Lightweights have led pampered lives compared to their Series siblings, but this can often put them out of reach of many pockets. Even though corrosion, neglect and bodges may all be present, it makes a fantastic alternative to a stratospherically priced Series I and is every bit as rewarding to own. Look for the best, often to be found in the hands of military vehicle enthusiasts.
