1975 Land Rover Series 3 109 2.25


Best classic 4x4 without nonsense


My brake jammed and dragged and thus overheated the engine in my first 100 kilometers. But fixing all the problems was a piece of cake. Just wrong brake shoes spring false attached.

Voltage regulator burnt twice at 250 kilometers, and next 280 kilometers.

False readings of the temperature gauges from the beginning, already checked the voltage stabilizer, probably had a bad temperature sensor.

General Comments:

I get all the wheel bearing repacked and greased. Put Militec-1 on the engine and the transmission, included the transfer case. Engine runs so smooth, and almost don't know if it's running.

It handles the trails like a tank, perfect articulation, awesome traction and flawless gear ratio. Superb off road rigs.

It comes at the most basic necessities, no electrical gimmicks, no potential fails caused by electricity. It always runs and handles all kinds of trail conditions.

Mine comes with reclining front seats, and addition of power steering and power brakes, which improves the comfort and easy of use.

Rust only on bottom door frames, straight and flawless chassis and bulkhead.

Cracked and tattered on top dash linings and door trims, but it's minor.

Always got much of other's attention on the road.

Land Rover Series 3 109 is the best 4x4 ever.

No ditch too deep, no hill to steep, no boundaries


It won't retire. Costly to run, but lots of fun to have. A gas guzzler and has leaks all over it, whether oil or water. However it's her nature.

General Comments:

Still reliable, gives me and my friends a lot of fun. I used it as an everyday workhorse and it's easy to fix.
