Description

The Series III Land Rover further developed the successive refinements of the Series I, II and IIA models, yet remained true to its original design as a utility vehicle for farmers; one that could be repaired and maintained with the minimum of specialist tools. It rapidly built up a worldwide reputation for rugged capability, which led to it being adopted by police forces and armies worldwide.

The book describes the step-by-step development of the Series III, so the potential buyer becomes aware of each model’s individual strengths and weaknesses. Having chosen your preferred model, you are professionally guided through important aspects of the retail market, and given clear instructions on where and how to check for problems before you buy. You will also be equipped to test drive your potential purchase with competence. Running and maintenance costs are realistically appraised, and a comprehensive checklist is provided to aid you through the evaluation process.

With over 100 colour photographs integrated into the concise and informative text, this book really is the expert in your pocket.


About the Author

Maurice Thurman has been hooked on Series Land Rovers ever since, as a schoolboy, he watched them picking their way through dense woodland in an off-road trial. He has since been driving them, on and off-road, in various parts of the world for over 25 years. As a retired teacher, he believes that knowledge gained from experience should be passed on. Maurice runs a website dedicated to Series Land Rovers, and writes books that are intended to be of benefit to dedicated Land Rover owners.
