Land Rover Series III
1975 Series 3
£28,000 to £46,000
This exact car was £29,000.
This Series 3 was restored by its previous owner, an enthusiast who over five years rebuilt every aspect of the car to an exceptional standard. Pre-conversion it was a beautiful vehicle to drive, now electrified, it’s one of the nicest Series 3’s out there. The Land Rover was sourced for the client, who wanted an eco runabout for their holiday home in the Algarve region of Portugal, where electric vehicles are strongly encouraged. Now it regularly has surf-boards, kids and sand in the back and without its roof on, is the coolest way to cruise around the Portuguese beachside town.
