Here is my Series III 109 Station Wagon with safari roof for sale. It has the original 2. 25ltr petrol engine with genuine very low recorded miles. All the panels are very straight with only a few minor dents and scrapes. This is an exceptionally good example of an unmolested land rover, essentially one owner and well maintained over many years.

Recent Work

The gearbox has been fully rebuilt by a local specialist (as it was difficult to engage reverse), new heavy duty clutch (including
master and slave cylinders, bearings and seals), new fuel lift pump, all brakes fully refurbished including new copper pipes. All new oils in engine, gearbox, transfer box and axles. New battery.

Work Required

This is really down to the new owner to decide based on final vehicle spec, but from a practical point of view it could do with 2 new outriggers on the chassis and a tidy up around the front foot wells (they have been done in the past, but not the neatest of jobs). The side steps are in need of replacement and there is one pane of glass missing from the rear sliding windows. The leaf springs are functional, but could probably do with replacing (There are a full set of springs included in the sale which are second hand and in good condition).


I have owned the vehicle for 3 years and bought it as a project, which unfortunately I don't now have time to complete.

The 109 was originally bought by the Central Electricity Generating Board in 1973 and was stationed at the Littlebrook Power Station situated on the south bank of the River Thames, next to the Queen Elizabeth 2 bridge (and Dartford Tunnel). It was primarily used to transport power station staff around the site, especially in times of bad weather, which means it has had light use for all of its working life. The raised roof section was specified as an option when purchased and was completed at the Land Rover factory. This was required to give more head room as it was going to be used as a people carrier. The mileage is genuine and can be verified by the previous MOT history. The power station ceased operations in March 2015 and has now been demolished.

The 109 was purchased at the time of closure by one of the ex-employees with the intention of carrying out a light restoration and then using it on his small holding. It sat in dry storage for 3 years at which point he decided to sell the vehicle on.

Since owning the vehicle I have also kept it in dry storage and recently carried out the refurbishment works mentioned above.

Once car production restarted, however, it was greatly outsold by the off-road Land Rover, which developed into its own brand that remains ...
