4WD for Sale, 1971 Land Rover Series III 88 Defender

This is a 1971 Land Rover Series III 88, right-hand drive and imported directly from England in good running condition. This Landie was legally imported this summer, and all customs paperwork is available.

The vehicle is fully registered, titled, and insured in Massachusetts as I do enjoy the drive. The state safety inspection was also passed in Sept 2013.
