1972 Land Rover Other
By the late 1960s, t was clear that changes to the Series IIA were required if Land Rover was going to keep its edge. Hence in 1971, he Series IIA was replaced by the Series III. Cash was limited and market research showed that customers were not looking for radical changes. Hence the Series III was an evolution of the Series IIA design, ather a complete revampThe most significant change was the replacement of the gearbox with a completely new gearbox that incorporated synchromesh on all forward gears. The ratios were also revised, ith lower Reverse and 1st gears. The Low Range ratio was also reduced. Clutch design was also modified to include a diaphragm spring, esulting in smoother and quieter gear changes. Brakes were also improved, nd a heavy duty Salisbury rear axle was fitted as standard to all 6 cylinder vehicles. From 1972, he Salisbury became a standard fitment on all 109" vehicles. The electrical system was also upgraded with the dynamo replaced by an alternator.This Land Rover was imported from Ireland over 20 years ago, nd is still in great unrestored condition. It is certainly a find as unrestored rovers in the condition are quite rare.Please feel free tocontact me directly at 260.316.7227 for any additional information, hotos, tc.
