Hey guys,

I know pretty much nothing about Land Rovers but I've always liked their styling and functionality. I came across a 1972 Series III for sale a couple blocks near me. Looked it over a bit, has corrosion holes in the body, spare tranny in the back, PTO setup. I called up the guy, he said he wants $2500 for it and it runs great mechanically. What's the average going price on these Rovers?

Corrosion holes in the body... only easy way to fix that is to replace the tub with a good used one. You can replace just the side panels, but that is a big PITA.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the firewall and the frame for rust. Each of these is a fairly major undertaking to remedy, and the frame can be quite costly.

Mechanical work is easy to fix on a Series, rust issues are not. IMO I would find one in the same price bracket that had a mint body and frame, but a blown transmission or motor.

Nuts and bolts is easier than welding and grinding.
