1973 Land Rover Series 3 109 Wagon
The Land Rover was conceived by the Rover Company in 1947 during the aftermath of World War II. Maurice Wilks, Rover's chief designer came up with a plan to produce a light agricultural and utility vehicle, of a similar concept to the Willys Jeep used in the war, but with an emphasis on agricultural use. Tests showed this prototype vehicle to be a capable and versatile machine. Land Rover entered production in 1948 with what has later been termed the Series I. This was launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show. It was designed for farm and light industrial use, with a steel box-section chassis and an aluminum body. The series III had the same body and engine options as the preceding IIa, including station wagons and the 1 Ton versions. Little changed cosmetically from the IIA to the series III. The series III is the most common series vehicle, with 440,000 of the type built from 1971 to 1985. This unique Land Rover Series 3 was formerly a British military vehicle pickup stationed in Germany. The current purchased it in 1991 and had it converted to the 109 Wagon you see here. The chassis is the galvanized military component and has no damage or corrosion. It has military wiring and 4-speed transmission. It has the 2.25 liter gas 4 cylinder motor which starts and runs smoothly. This is a super driving vehicle that is suited for back road jaunts and off road adventures.
