1973 Land Rover 88 Series III

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1973 Land Rover 88 Series III. With only two Atlanta owners for the last 21 years, this truck has been serviced for two decades by the legendary English car specialist Chic Newman, whom we adore but others seem to either love or hate. Say what you will, he was particularly good with Land Rover Series trucks. Although the finish is showing patina throughout, we appreciate how remarkably straight the body is (most of these unrestored Land Rovers are beat up and rusty). Rocky Mountain aluminum side curtains are installed atop the doors, and a hard-to-find hoop set for a full canvas hood is also fitted (although only the pictured bikini top is present). A full hard top and rear door are available upon request.

The interior has been updated with three individual bucket seats from a Defender plus a modern AM/FM stereo with USB and aux input. Factory gauges work, instrument lights work, and the exterior lights are all working. A roll bar with three point seat belts adds a measure of safety (it's removable for either the daring or the purists).

The 2.25 liter petrol four cylinder runs well and was rebuilt a few years ago in Chic's shop. Four-speed manual gearbox has the typical crunchy second gear synchros but works well and the clutch feels good. Recent brake job. We believe this left-hand-drive Series III has always been in the U.S. (Land Rover ceased exports to the states in 1974). For more information about this 1973 Land Rover Series III for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
