If there were an award given out for the most versatile vehicle of all time, early model Land Rovers might very well be at the top of the winner’s bracket. They’ve been everywhere from the woods of Canada to the African savannah and back again, and they’ve served as everything from military transports to rally support vehicles. Now, this 1976 Series III Pickup, which falls into that latter category, is headed to auction.
Probably the ultimate support vehicle for classic car events, like the Goodwood Festival of Speed, this pickup truck has a lot going for it — including a documented history of just three owners from brand new, a nearly-finished complete restoration at the hands of the previous owner, and all the parts to finish the job. It also boasts its original chassis number, a rare Salisbury front axle, and a winch rig on the back making this already-impressive 4×4 even more capable. Expected to go for $24,000-$26,000 at auction, this support vehicle is sure to steal the spotlight.
