1979 Land Rover Series III 109 Wagon: SOLD

From the sweeping plains of the Serengeti to the extreme altitudes of the Andes Mountains, one vehicle has remained an icon for world travelers: the Land Rover.  Born from humble beginnings in 1946 at the home of Maurice and Spencer Wilkes, the Land Rover Series I came to define ultimate ruggedness and off-road capability.  The first vehicle to be seen by over one-third of the entire world’s population is a Land Rover, and over 75% of the vehicles built remain in active service.  Slight modifications over the years gave way to successive Series models.  This Series III 109 Wagon was one of the last of the original lineage that would become today’s Defender.

Offered in a coveted diesel engine, this truck has been meticulously maintained and boasts a custom interior finish with ivory and black leather seating, which are accentuated by the two-tone dash, steering wheel, gear shifter, and door treatment.  The matching carpets are a nice finish as well, giving the Series III a classy look.  The exterior black paint has full luster, and the front door panel decals make a bold statement and add to the overall appeal of the vehicle.  Painted black wheels and corrugated steel panels are set off by bright aluminum finish on the radiator grille and headlamp covers.  The rally lights mounted to the roof and the classic safari viewing glass make it well-known that this truck is ready to take you wherever you wish to go.

Whether you’re looking for a 1951 vintage Series I, a 1997 Defender, or a 2012 Range Rover Autobiography… we have seen and sold just about anything you could imagine.  We are the premiere and exclusive Land Rover dealership in Minnesota and the Dakotas, and we offer a wealth of experience to help you find the classic Land Rover of your dreams.
