Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to represent this rugged 1976 Land Rover Series III truck! Though inspired by the World War II jeep, the Land Rover immediately distinguished itself from all other cars. From launch, it was the first mass-produced civilian four-wheel drive car with doors on it, and an available hard roof. Contrary to conventional car and truck chassis, it used a sturdier fully box-welded frame. Furthermore, due to post-war steel shortage, and aluminum surplus, Land Rovers received non-rusting aluminum alloy bodies, favoring their longevity. The series III is the most common series vehicle, with 440,000 of the type built from 1971 to 1985.
