Footnotes

  • Inspired by the US Army's wartime 'Jeep', developed hastily and intended for short-term, small-scale production, the Land Rover would defy its creators' initial scepticism. Rover saw the need for a tough, four-wheel-drive, utility vehicle to serve the needs of the agricultural community in the immediately post-war years, but the Land Rover's runaway success took the company by surprise. The necessity of using corrosion resistant aluminium panels at a time of severe steel shortage became a positive virtue in the Land Rover's sphere of operations, and the use of existing components kept costs down and cut development time. Progressively developed since its launch in 1948 and modified to serve countless specialist requirements, the ubiquitous Land Rover looks set to continue well into the 21st Century.

    A Series III model on the 88" wheelbase, this example has the 2,286cc petrol engine while the front hubs, bonnet-mounted spare wheel, front lamp guards and Safari station wagon body are post-factory alterations/additions. The vehicle was purchased in 2012, since when it has proved very useful in the snow! Its previous history is not known. 'OAM 230M' is described as in generally solid condition (the rear cross member appears quite new) and is said to start well, with no rattles from the engine. This collectible Series III Land Rover is offered with MoT to 30th December 2013 and Swansea V5C.
