SUMMARY

A one-owner Series III from 50 years of ownership, entered in our sale by its original supplying dealer. Offered with No Reserve.

DESCRIPTION

  • 50 years with its original owner and now brought to auction by its original supplying dealer
  • Now retired, our vendor was offered the opportunity to acquire his friend's car upon his passing and he couldn't resist the opportunity to honour his friend's memory by making sure it went to a good home
  • Not your average Series III, the car had been used for years doing 'Land Rover things' until it occurred to our long-term owner that it might be fun to convert it into something special
  • Local company, Andys Landys, carried out the conversion, using a donor Range Rover, so that it is now powered by a 3.5-litre V8 sitting on Range Rover suspension with Range Rover alloys and tyres, and a Range Rover gearbox
  • Other developments included replacing the front bodywork with a Defender 90 front end to accommodate the larger and lower engine, as well as upgrades including Halogen headlights, power steering, front and rear discs and security door locks
  • Finished in Limestone, it's comparatively understated apart from the Range Rover wheels and V8 gruffle and, we understand, it performs admirably and cruises easily at speed
  • Whilst mechanically very good, cosmetically it could do with being taken to the next level, however its new owner may well choose to leave it as it is, a bit of a 'Q-Car'
