Mark,
I have adumb question. Is it 4 wheel drive? I seem to remember Land Rover making a few hundred 2x4 series trucks for the military in the Netherlands somewhere. Just curious. Nice looking truck.

And to the potential buyer of this truck I have a nice B pillar type roll bar for it and some very clean cloth front seats.

Kevin,
You are correct, this is a two wheel drive rover.

That's a long trip in a series III, no air or radio etc. But it does have two gas tanks for more miles between fill-ups

What is the state of the chassis? What is wrong/will need attention?
How does it shift? Do you have to double cluth?
I am not familiar with the 2 wheel drive rovers, what is different? no T-Case? (rear axle is driven right?) How much is required to convert to a 4-wheel drive (well.... to a series-III 4wd type of transmission)? [If anyone has a link to those types of rover.... I'll google this in a sec]

Windows in the soft top need to be replaced. Softop is made of a "rubberized canvas" all the fasteners are in great shape. Frame and bulkhead are strong with only minor surface rust. And it does have a standard land rover leak on my shop floor. All five tires are brand new and have less than 5 miles on them ($700.00)

A long search (not much information out there about them) gave me more info on converting the 2-wheel drive rovers into 4 wheel drive:
- need to replace front axle (might be able to re-use front swivels)
- need to either switch T-Case to fill the missing pieces (and there are a "few" of them! ;-) Switching is probably cheaper anyway)
- need to get the yellow and red levers
- probably need to do some mods in the cab to accomodate the new levers

I did read also that Series III (military version as well?) were all fitted with synchromech on all 4 gears.

Mark,
I was reading a little history about the Belgian order from Land Rover. They ordered them with a Salsbury rear axle with limited slip diff. Does you truck have a Sals rearend? If so it should have a limited slip in there also.

Hmm? I have a Sals on my 130. I think the difference that is obvious is that the rear of the diff can come off.
This is a picture of my sals diff. It has a custom cover made by Dave Lucas but you can see the bolts around the outside allowing you to remove the cover. On a regular diff you cannot remove the rear of the diff.

Kevin,

just checked, the rear diff is not a bolt on cover. Did your source say they put them on the 88's? or the 109's ? or both?

Mark,

The story I read said that they bought a number of Series III soft top trucks but did not specify 88 or 109. Either way you still have a rare truck.
