The renowned name and vehicle, Land Rover, was launched in 1948 and developed from a single offering to a family of long and short wheelbase derivatives with an ever-increasing choice of engines. The Series III of 1971-1985 was the most numerous, with some 440,000 being produced. Outwardly it was almost identical to the IIA, but the gearbox now benefited from synchromesh on all ratios, while the cab featured a more modern, moulded plastic facia.

Chassis number 90155723A was first registered on the 14th of August 1979 and is fitted with the 2285cc straight-four petrol engine allied to a four-speed manual transmission. Finished in Green with Green wheels and Khaki canvas, with Green interior upholstery. With a recorded mileage of 15,711 recorded miles, the SWB is fitted with a matching bonnet mounted spare, free-wheeling hubs, rear grab handles, military lifting eyes, and deluxe front seats (with belts). Benefitting from much improvement while in the current ownership, the Land Rover has a recently refreshed canvas hood, new carburettors and distributor, clutch slave and master cylinders and renewed footwells. Offered with a selection of invoices from the vendor's ownership and a current V5C document.
