1981 land rover Series III 109 'Stage 1' V8 soft top for sale at motodrome

The Stage One was only produced for a limited time, and in limited numbers, and was Land Rover’s first attempt at fitting the venerable Rover V8 into the Series vehicles, together with permanent four wheel drive rather than the usual selectable system, and this is a genuine factory one rather than a conversion, so no unsuitable gearing etc.

It has fantastic provenance – for almost all it’s life it served as a fire engine on a private airfield in Northern Ireland, and still has the control panel on the dash – the sirens still work. Because of it’s easy life, we think the odometer reading of just 29000 miles is likely to be genuine.

Also, it’s chassis is absolutely superb, and again indicative of a low-mileage, well cared for example.

It was stripped and repainted back to it’s original Grey in 2020 at a cost of £4000.00, and paintwork wise it’s really very good indeed.

Fitted with recovery shackles, and black chequerplate to the bonnet, wingtops and modesty covers. .  Inside it has a pair of deluxe front seats which are likely to be the originals  

Very rare, and very hard indeed to find in this condition.

It’s been into our workshop for a good tune and fettle

Comes with our usual 6 months warranty on sale.
