For over sixty years now, when old Land Rovers are past their best they are usually parked in a corner of a barn with the avowed intention of "Fixing it one day". There it will stay for a while and occasionally Number 1 Son or an impecunious nephew or someone will spend a few hours getting it going and the Landy will provide inexpensive transport to the pub for a few weeks until University beckons. At this point, it's frequently abandoned in the corner of a field against a stone wall, there to provide a climbing frame for Briar and Honeysuckle, a windbreak for the sheep, or the perfect subject for local artists. However, over the last decade or so, with prices starting to climb, a number of old Land Rovers have been rescued and returned to life, some just enough to function well and become legal, some as smart restoration projects and some, like this one, win the 'Land Rover Lottery'.
This, very rare, one ton 109" Land Rover Series III, six-cylinder tow truck, shows only three previous owners on the accompanying V5C. Before our vendor's ownership, this rare car was the subject of an ongoing restoration over a long period of time by the previous owner to a very high standard. All parts were sourced by him but unfortunately, he couldn't quite finish the project so the Series III moved into our vendor's ownership with the intention of finishing the job. However, due to other pressing commitments, our vendor, a significant private collector of Land Rovers, is offering the car at Race Retro with various parts included to potentially help finish the restoration.
We understand that this Landy has the rare Salisbury front axle and that the roof is galvanised as are the doors and bonnet frame. The restoration so far appears to have been carried out to a very high standard with good finishes and a lot of attention to detail and there doesn't appear to be too much more to do. When finished this 'Tow Truck' would be an ideal support vehicle for Goodwood or other high profile events. An interesting and rare opportunity.
I've owned this Land Rover for 8 or 9 years having saved it from it's long term resting place in Wales.
We fitted her with a galvanised chassis, parabolic springs, clutch, shocks, Weber carb conversion etc etc.
She has been regularly and lightly used since her mid life refresh, and we resisted .....
