Ready for a jungle safari? If Jeeps, Land Cruisers and Scouts aren’t your thing, MotoeXotica Classic Cars offers this Aries Blue 1973 Land Rover Series III 88 Hardtop. 

Made in Solihull, Warwickshire, England, this Landie looks ready to take you anywhere. Its newer, Aries blue paint and white trim are in overall excellent order, thanks to a recent cosmetic restoration. Its bodywork is straight and its engine bay is very tidy. The cargo space between the rear jump seats looks great and the black, front bumper complements the rest of the exterior colors well. 

It rolls on neo-retro Firestone Super-All-Traction ND tires, size 7.50-16LT at all four wheels. There’re spare tires mounted atop the hood and on the rear door. Each tire surrounds a steel wheel painted white to match the hardtop roof. The tires are good condition while the wheels display in excellent order. 

Under the hood is Land Rover’s 2.25L four-cylinder engine #252 39917H, backed by a four-speed manual transmission with synchromesh and a two-speed, manual transfer gearbox. Driver convenience features include rare air-conditioning and front disc brakes. The Land Rover also has a new brand new Rovers North fuel tank and new carburetor.

Inside, the newer black/gray newer upholstery is in very good condition, as is the dash and dash mounted air conditioning unit. The three-spoke steering wheel is in fine form while the inner door liners and instrument panel with Jaeger/Smith gauges are all in good, original condition. Note that the fuel gauge and speedometer are inoperable and the vehicle’s ignition switch is on the left side of the steering column. 

The series III had the same body and engine options as the preceding IIa, including station wagons and the 1 Ton versions. Little changed cosmetically from the IIA to the series III. The series III is the most common series vehicle, with 440,000 of the type built from 1971 to 1985. The headlights were moved to the wings on late production IIA models from 1968/9 onward (ostensibly to comply with Australian, American and Dutch lighting regulations) and remained in this position for the series III. The traditional metal grille, featured on the series I, II and IIA, was replaced with a plastic one for the series-III model. 

During the series-III production run from 1971 until 1985, the 1,000,000th Land Rover rolled off the production line in 1976. The series III saw many changes in the later part of its life as Land Rover updated the design to meet increased competition. This was the first model to feature synchromesh on all four gears, although some late H-suffix SIIA models (mainly the more expensive Station Wagons) had used the all-synchro box. In keeping with early 1970s trends in automotive interior design, both in safety and use of more advanced materials, the simple metal dashboard of earlier models was redesigned to accept a new molded plastic dash. The instrument cluster, which was previously centrally located, was moved to the driver's side. 

Competitors to this Land Rover in 1973 included Chevrolet’s K5 Blazer, Ford’s Bronco, GMC’s K5 Jimmy, International-Harvester’s Scout II and Jeep’s CJ-5. 

Land Rovers are capable and dignified off-roaders. The classiest way to tackle a rough dirt ford, cross a river or scale a mountain is in a Land Rover. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check this one out in person before you schedule that next adventure!

  • The vehicle is offered with a right to a personal inspection by any bidder or agent of any bidder. The Vehicle is being sold by a Licensed State of Missouri Dealer (Motoexotica Classic Cars).
  • Any Missouri resident must pay local MO sales tax and licensing fees to the Missouri Department of Revenue. All others will do so in their home state.
  • All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. (No vehicle is perfect to everyone.) Each vehicle has its strengths, shortcomings, styles and tendencies.  Therefore, despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or previous owner’s diligence in care. It is for this reason that all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. We have described the above mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective. Please be advised that no oral or written statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of the condition of the said vehicle.
  • The vehicle is available for inspection prior to bidding. If you are the high bidder and unable to inspect said vehicle before auction close, you or an agent will have seven(7) days to inspect said vehicle after the close of auction. We strongly encourage a physical inspection to avoid any misunderstandings or representations.
  • Bidders with less than 10 feedbacks MUST email us before bidding showing their intent to purchase the vehicle. Due to increasing non-paying bidders, we reserve the right to cancel your bid if you do not have more then 10 feedbacks. WE WILL NOT TOLERATE BID INTERFERENCE!
  • All disputes arising out of or resulting from this sale shall be finally determined by binding arbitration in St. Louis, Missouri in accordance with the commercial rules of arbitration of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration shall be carried out by one or more arbitrators in accordance with said rules. Any award shall be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction in the same manner as judgments. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive the sale of the automobile described herein. Buyer and Seller hereby agree that Missouri law shall control for all purposes under this Bill of Sale. Buyer and Seller hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Missouri to specifically enforce the agreement to arbitrate and to enter judgment of and enforce the award of the arbitrator.

If an inspection or decision takes longer then seven days and you find the vehicle not to your liking, your deposit will be forfeited and the car will be relisted for sale.
  • Final payment must be received within ten (10) days of the auction close. The refundable deposit only applies if you or an agent inspect said vehicle in St. Louis and find it not to your liking. MotoeXotica will not be responsible for buyers remorse or problems found to said vehicle once they have left our property. Most of the cars we deal with are vintage and will need TLC and some degree of attention eventually. These are not new vehicles and should not be treated as such.
  • Once full payment has been received, Seller will email a copy of clear title, Bill of Sale, buyers guide and additional DMV forms to the Buyer to sign and return via Docusign. The forms must be returned to the Seller prior to the shipment of said vehicle upon receipt of signed documents. Original paperwork will be sent to Buyer via USPS Priority Mail.
