1974 Land Rover Other 88"Land Rover Series III, west coast truck since new, brought to Maryland this spring. Plan was to use for overlanding/camping, ended up with a Land Cruiser instead.
Engine was changed to a GM iron duke 2.5 sometime in the early 80's, running a 1979 engine with HEI and Weber carb.Swap was done using a Scotty's adapter, this was a popular swap, parts uses cheap and easy to find GM parts and stock Rover transmission
