Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1978 Land
Rover Defender Series III. 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. This particular 1978 Series III was imported to the
United States recently from Costa Rica. Finished in two-tone Orange
and White with a Black Vinyl Interior. Power is sent to the rear
wheels by a 2.25 Liter Inline 4-Cylinder diesel engine backed by a
4-Speed Manual Transmission. If you're in the market for a truck
with proven dependability, an awesome Costa Rican look, this 1978
Land Rover Series III is for you!
