The third Land Rover was a Series III 88" 2.25 petrol

As bought

This was an ex-Royal Marines Land Rover, I bought from a Range Rover dealer in Yorkshire. He had it in part exchange for a Rangie and wanted to be rid of it quickly, it lowered the tone of his site!
The motor came with free straw in the back, and a tailgate otherwise it was quite nice. I swapped the tailgate for a station wagon rear door cleaned the straw out and we went on holiday in it.

Parked by the caravan.
The caravan we rented from the Deaf Children's Society (my daughter is deaf) for a week at Easter in 1987, the first of many weeks spent near Aberystwyth in Wales!!
A good view without the roof

I took the roof off to fit a roof lining, this was a foam backed material glued to the inside of the roof, much easier to fit with the roof off.

Grey paint job!
We fancied a colour change and went for this two tone grey. It looked better in real life!
At Knypersley!
