We love a classic Land Rover because it has a soul and It’s an old truck with a tire on the hood. Not only that but also because it looks like it's ready for an adventure no matter if it's climbing to the top of a mountain, cruising along a beach, through the jungle or on Safari, or just parked in the driveway. This 1982 Land Rover Series III (88") can do it all. We are delighted to present for sale this handsome Series III refurbished to James Bond Spec, for those of you that know, the new Bond movie ‘No Time to Die' premiers in October 2021. Early clips released from the film and shoots show James Bond in none other than a Marine blue Land Rover Series III. Production on the 25th James Bond movie kicked off, and set photos from Jamaica show Daniel Craig's, retired James Bond driving around in an old and trusty Land Rover Series III. The first look shows Bond driving an open-top Series III down the streets of Jamaica. With Jaguar Land Rover having been heavily involved in the 007 enterprises since the mid-80s, it's no surprise to see a return in the new film with this ole classic Land Rover.

The interior is pure substance over style, combining the Land Rover's utility and purposeful look with a few useful amenities to make it manageable in the modern world. The accommodations are bare because luxury was a luxury you couldn't afford in the middle of nowhere.

It's simple and was built to have a no-nonsense approach. With the classic removable half doors and fold down windscreen you can turn this ole girl into the ultimate open top cruiser in no time.

The 2.25-liter diesel engine in this truck stays with the simple and reliable theme and is part of the robust tradition of durable Land Rover power engines. Power flows back through a 4-speed gearbox. This one shows the right signs of a good investment in keeping it looking stock and well maintained. It's also relatively efficient and easy to service under all conditions. This truck shows just 5,600 miles on the odometer, but a new one was installed around 95k miles so true mileage is just over 100k miles.
