1971 Land Rover Defender White

Background Info:
The Series III models were introduced in September 1971. Despite thenew model name, they were essentially anevolutionof the Series IIA they replaced. Identifyingfeatures were the one-piece moulded grille in ABS plastic, flat hinges for all side doors, and a black plastic dashboard which located the instruments directly in front of the driver. The Series IIIs retainedthe all-synchromesh gearbox which had been introduced on the last of the Series IIA models. In the beginning, the engines in the 88-inch models were the same 2.25-litre petrol and diesel four-cylinders as had powered the Series IIAs but from1980, these were re-engineered with five main bearings instead of the original three.,They could be purchased withtruck cabs, hardtop, seven-seat station wagons or with a full soft top. A few examples were also converted into fire tenders. Colours available up to 1983 were Bronze Green, Light Green, Mid-Grey, Marine Blue, Limestone and (for export only) Sand. From early 1983, Masai Red, Roan Brown, Russet Brown, Stratos Blue and Trident Green were added to the range. Interior upholstery was invariably black. The Series III 88-inch models were effectively replaced by the new coil-sprung Ninety range from June 1984, but production continued into 1985 to meet orders from overseas.
