1975 Land Rover Series III Review
4x4. The Best 4x4xfar "land Rover" So True... — It's a Land Rover. Not one for ride comfort with leaf springs!! Mine is a 4 speed fully syncromesh gearbox, so it does run up a good fuel bill!!! The insurance for an 18 year old at just over 1 thousand pounds is very cheap for what it is. A 2.25 Petrol engine which has a fair amount of poke! You have to take corners carefully as this is a Station Wagon so if you corner too enthusiastically, you will flip it. No doubt about it.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Such a difference in driving style to what I was used to with the Mini and 106.
Cons: None really. Just if you are not used to old vehicles you may not be too happy with ride comfort.

It's a slab-sided, leaf-sprung, manual-steer beast with a bare minimum of interior accoutrements. Loads of fun to drive. Read More
