1982 Land Rover Series 3 109" Station Wagon 2.25li petrol
Does precisely what is was designed to do spectacularly well
Have had absolutely NOTHING to do, other than to maintain a regular service schedule.
Quite a remarkable vehicle.
This thing is almost beyond belief. It will go anywhere, literally anywhere and is so torquey.
I previously owned a 2000 model Landcruiser, and in terms of reliability and off-road ability, it is not even close to this old Land Rover. Sure, on-road the Toyota was a more comfortable option, but so it should have been, as it was 18 years and 60 thousand dollars more expensive.
I bought the Land Rover as a recommend from a mate who has always owned them, and prior to owning one I thought he was quite mad, however, my opinion is now substantially revised as these old Landies truly are remarkable vehicles. Would recommend anyone serious about getting places without fuss or difficulty - pick up an old Landy - AWESOME!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
