The Series III Land Rover, an updated Series IIA, was launched in 1971 and offered an amalgamation of cosmetic and engineering changes intended to modernize the Land Rover in the face of growing competition from other manufacturers, especially in traditional export markets. Despite being produced during a troubled era of motor vehicle production in Britain, more than 400,000 Series IIIs were produced, and they are now considered cherished classics. Fully illustrated with over 190 color photographs, this book looks fondly at the numerous Land Rover Series III models that were produced successful against an uncertain backdrop.

John Carroll has compiled a superb survey of the first three Series of Land Rovers (the 110 and 90 and Defenders came later in the 1980s onwards) and the three books begin with short introductions to the genre, then copiously illustrated high quality
images of examples and applications, both civilian and military.

Special purpose vehicles are also covered as well as details and action shots showing features in use such as winches and the Power Take Off on early Series I’s which allowed them to drive machinery much as a tractor could.

This 3rd volume looks at the Series III of the Land Rover covering 1971-1985 after which it was replaced by the long-lived Land Rover Defender.

It follows the same format as the previous two volumes, with good photos of this version as well as the various conversions and special duty versions.

Once again, a useful reference to a very prevalent classic vehicle in Britain especially. Anyone modelling the 1950s to the 1980s will certainly find these 3 volumes of interest.
