Land Rover Series III Reborn by Lindsay Porter


Land Rover Series III Reborn by Lindsay Porter

We took a low-mileage, ex-military, unregistered Series III Land Rover, stripped it down to its bare bones, and then blended it with an original Series III Station Wagon in very poor condition. After stirring into the pot a selection of new and modified parts from a number of different sources, we ended up with the most immaculate and user-friendly Series III you could imagine. Here's everything you need to know to restore or modify your own Series III from suspension, brakes, and steering, to engine, transmission and body improvements. You want better seats? Galvanised chassis and bulkhead? Immaculately restored body and mechanical components? This manual tells you how. Including advice on rebuilding the rear body tub, the bulkhead, Station Wagon side frames, and much more besides, this book is a must for all Land Rover Series III owners!

About the Author

Lindsay Porter is sometimes referred to as the UK's top-selling motoring author, and he has been writing motoring books since Veloce Publishing's director Rod Grainger first commissioned him in 1981. Lindsay was among the first to develop the photo-intensive style for which his how-to publications are known. This has made him a firm favourite with the owners of Land Rovers, those most DIY-friendly of all classic motor vehicles. Lindsay is a self-confessed Land Rover nut, and this book is the story of his quest - a perfectionist's quest - to built the perfect Land Rover Series 3.
