1983 Land Rover Series III Review

The Best 4x4 By Far — series Land Rovers have incredible performance, not in 0-60 speed but in sheer grunt, power and applying that power to the road (or "surface" is a better term!) modern "4x4"'s may have more power, but that is pointless if you can't use it! Landys can turn their wheel to any function and are truly the world's ONLY "go-anywhere" vehicle. The build quality is solid and will outlive their owners, in fact most land rovers built are still in daily use, more than ANY other vehicle manufacturer. Handling is industrial, repairs are dirt cheap and amazingly easy, spare parts are available worldwide on every continent, there are people in mud huts in africa who can rebuild an entire landy in less than a week! Cost of ownership is probably the cheapest of any vehicle in production (provided you have an older tax-exempt vehicle) and insurance is dirt cheap too. Do an LPG conversion and your MPG's will be good as well. Appearance is purely funcitonal and distinctive, and the fun factor is off the charts! :D

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: will last forever, easy to work on, parts readily available

Cons: can be chilly in winter - but you should just put on a jumper you big pansy!

Ex-mod By Amy

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