1994 LAND ROVER DEFENDER 110 - 300TDI

This Defender 110 Heritage tribute is undergoing a complete nut, bolt, frame off and mechanical rebuild. Complete with the legendary 300Tdi and R380 gearbox. More info to come soon. Fully rebuilt with a new gearbox, engine and all auxiliary components new with only break in miles. As the name suggests, this limited-edition Defender pays homage to its past, but the celebration goes beyond 1983 (first Defender model released), the year it was born. For the original Heritage Edition, Land Rover turned to the "HUE 166," the company’s very first Land Rover Series SUV. Born in 1947, the small two-door off-roader registered as the HUE 166 in Britain kick-started the SUV that would keep in production till 2016.


While it retains the boxy design and the overall features of a regular Defender, the Heritage Edition benefits from a host of unique exterior elements. First up is the Grasmere Green metallic paint job, which is complemented by an Alaska White roof. The Grasmere Green color is perfect in fact, encapsulating the era of classic Landies while still appearing quite fresh because it's unusual. For the trendy types that fawn over Defenders at present it will be perfect. The bespoke model is also equipped with body-colored wheel arches, a feature that adds distinction to this otherwise rugged utility vehicle. In a nod to the original HUE 166 Series, the Heritage Edition received a silver front bumper with black end caps, a bespoke front grille, body-colored headlamp surrounds, and body-colored steel wheels.


Land Rovers went everywhere, did everything, were used by everyone, and along the way became a uniquely classless automobile—even today, that mud spattered Defender you spot in an English village could belong to the local farmer, a rock star, or a member of the Royal Family. Winston Churchill drove a Land Rover. So did Steve McQueen. With its classic look and historical significance this will be our homage and purpose built tribute to the now legendary "HUE 166" Defender 110.

1981 LAND ROVER SERIES III - 2.25 GAS

We love a good classic Land Rover because it has a soul and its 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 climbed to the top of a mountain, along the beach, through the jungle or on Safari, or just parked in the driveway, this 1981 Land Rover Series III can do it all. We are delighted to present for sale this handsome series III refurbished to James Bond Spec, those of you that know that the new Bond movie ‘No Time to Die’ premiers in April 2020. Early clips released from the film and shoots show James Bond in non other than a Marine blue Land Rover Series III. Production on the 25th James Bond movie kicked off, and the first 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 show Bond driving an open-top Series III Land Rover down the streets of Jamaica. With Jaguar Land Rover having been heavly involved in the 007 enterprises since the mid-80s, it's no surprise to see a return in the new film with this classic Series III. 


This Series III is a 4x4 worthy of its go-anywhere heritage, it looks great on the road too. The Series III like this is an unmistakable part of that lineage. No matter if it's a Rolls Royce, Jaguar or a Land Rover, everyone always loves the look of a British car in right-hand drive. So you'll love the looks you get when getting out of the "right" side. This one looks ready for adventure at a moment's notice with the hood-mounted spare wheel, removable half doors and fold down windscreen. And the rope draped across the entire front end has the kind of thick cord that can get anyone out of trouble or create a game of tug of war. It's all finished in a vintage Land Rover, in classic Marine Blue. It's accented with a Limestone roof and matching steel wheels to finished of the classic look. That's what makes this 1981 Land Rover Series III so appealing. It stands out for the way it retains the look of a true explorer, right down to the details. Owning a classic 4x4 like this means getting the style just right. It carries the iconic Land Rover Series look thanks to a wearing correct-style color combo. This one is clean, sharp, and absolutely rugged.


It has a classic feel with the thin, robust steering wheel, tall gearstick, retro gauges, extra levels and proper red and yellow levers for four-wheel drive/low high range and free wheeling hubs. You can sit three across up front in individual-style seats. There are some extras, like proper three-point seatbelts and an AM/FM/CD stereo and rear bench seats. The rear compartment will accommodate several passengers or a ton of cargo, complete with two rear bench seats. Its looks highly original, it also received the right maintenance, including receipts within the last year for basic servicing, tune up, carburetor and transmission. 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. Reliability was paramount and as a result, the interiors were made of durable, easy-to-maintain materials that would wear like iron. All the necessities are there, including comfortable seats and a full array of instruments that are as close to basic as you're going to find. It's simple and was built to have a no-nonsense approach. Even the awesome hard roof remains in great shape, and you'll love the added protection it provides. 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. Complete with the very rare factory rear lift tailgate option, which makes converting to a soft top or completely topless nice and effortlessly.


The 2.25-liter motor is part of the robust tradition of durable Land Rover power. And this one shows the right signs of 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 71,159 original miles. Even the undercarriage photos prove this is a clean 4x4 that has been taken care of properly. So you have a strong-running package that upholds the tradition of the hearty Land Rover Series vehicles. The four-speed manual gearbox shifts smoothly as it gives you complete control over the motor, plus with Fairy overdrive you can cruise comfortably. These have an awesome look and feel right down to solid sound of the doors closing. You know it's time to fall in love with a well-done classic Land Rover. The manual is easy to use, and the 4-wheel-drive system is arguably the worlds best. All the original equipment remains intact to give you the genuine experience. The result is a traditional-looking off-roader or urban cruiser that works like a real vehicle in today's world. Seen in the backgrounds all over the world for decades, the Land Rover is one of the most famous vehicles on Earth. The build quality is very good of course, giving it a rugged, purposeful look that looks indestructible. This is the legendary 4x4 that has all the right moves to back up its tough appearance. So if you want to go everywhere and look great doing it this is the classic “No Time Too Die” James Bond Series III. If you're looking for something a little bit different, with some forthcoming Hollywood charm and movie stardom this Series will prove to be the perfect vehicle.

THE LAND ROVER SERIES III – A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

The Land Rover Series 3 was introduced in 1971 and was pretty much a “face-lifted” version of the Series 2 and 2a. Most parts are interchangeable between the 2a and the 3. The Series 3 (commonly referred to as the Series III) featured a few mechanical improvements over the Series 2a. It had the fully synchromesh four speed gearbox that had been fitted to late model Series 2a, the headlights were mounted on the front of the fenders/wings, and the front metal grille was replaced by a stylish looking plastic one. The bonnet/hood of the Series 3 was re-styled with a rounded front edge and recessed spare wheel, which both looked good and turned out to be practical. The interior of the Land Rover Series III was distinctly different in appearance. The plain metal, easy to maintain, central dashboard of the Series 2 and 2a was replaced with a modern looking plastic one, which re-located the instruments directly in front of the driver. This was actually a very practical change as the instruments are easily visible and the whole dashboard gave the vehicle a rather more up-market look. 


In the electrical department the old style Lucas generator was replaced with an alternator providing much better electrical performance, and reliability. The old Lucas generators (dynamo) of the earlier Land Rovers had a poor reputation for reliability, the end bearing being a common weakness that would chew out and cause the generator to fail. This and similar problems led to Lucas being wryly referred to as “the prince of darkness”. So the new electrical system with a nice new Lucas alternator was a welcome improvement. Production of the Land Rover Series 3 began in 1971 and ended in 1985, and about mid-way through the Series 3’s production, in 1976, the 1,000,000 Land Rover rolled off the production line at Solihull. The end of production of the Series 3 in 1985 marked the end of production of the Land Rovers most directly descended from Maurice Wilks’ original sketch in the sand at the beach in Anglesey. The Series 3 was the final refinement of that original and classic design and they have proved to be an excellent and now iconic vehicle.
