If you're supposed to go on safari tomorrow, but forgot to pick up a vehicle, this 1974 Land Rover Series III has you covered. It's a 4x4 worthy of its go-anywhere lineage, and it has nice off-road upgrades. And because we all love a cool/classic Land Rover, it looks great on the road, too.
The Land Rover is often the first to reach the developing countries. That's because no other 4x4 can reach the remote places that these tough machines can. And the Series III like this is an unmistakable part of that lineage. This one looks ready for adventure at a moment's notice with the hood-mounted spare, rock screens over the headlights, auxiliary lights in the bumpers, and a proper Jerrycan gas can on the rear. And the rope draped across the entire front end has the kind of thick cord that can get anyone out of trouble. And speaking of solutions, the 12,000 lbs winch is beyond just handy. You even have a trailer hitch. It's all finished in a proper Land Rover package where the classic green has the look of a vehicle that has seen many adventures. And it's accented by a white roof and white wheels for a hint of cool/vintage two-tone.
No matter if it's a Rolls-Royce or a Land Rover, everyone always loves the look of a British car in right-hand drive. So you'll love the looks you get when getting out of the “opposite” side on this 4x4. But this one was built for more than just showing off. The classic thin and grippy steering wheel feels purposeful and great in your hands. As you gaze over the dash, everything from the speedometer to toggle switches are correct and crisp. Bucket seats provide nice comfort, and the jump seat in the middle is there when you need it. Plus, the rear is ready to handle all your gear with the wide-opening rear door. There are even nice extras, like proper three-point seatbelts and an AM/FM/CD stereo.
The 2.5-liter motor is part of the robust tradition of durable Land Rover power. So it's great to have this one looking so stock. But while this looks highly original, it also received the right maintenance, including receipts within the last year for the carburetor and transmission. And the clean undercarriage photos also prove that this one has been treated with respect. The four-speed manual gearbox gives you complete control over the motor. Plus, the two-speed transfer case and upgraded Firestone Destination tires allow this impressive classic to still live up to its go-anywhere reputation.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and workshop manual. This is the legendary 4x4 that has all the right moves to back up its tough appearance. So if you want to go everywhere and look great doing it, call today!
