Description

The Series Land Rover was conceived as a utility vehicle for farmers; one that could be repaired and maintained with the minimum of specialist tools. The early models rapidly built up a worldwide reputation for rugged cross country capability that led to them not only to great success in the agricultural industry, but also to being adopted by police forces in at least 37 countries as well as emergency services in the UK and abroad.

The book describes the step by step development of the marque, so you are aware of each model’s individual strengths and weaknesses. Choose your preferred model, then be professionally guided through important aspects of the retail market, with clear instructions on where and how to check for specific potential problems before you buy. Evaluate and score your potential purchase against an exhaustive checklist, learn how to test-drive it with confidence, and be forewarned about running and maintenance costs.

The book also details the Land Rover community from clubs to specialists.

With over 100 colour photographs carefully integrated into the concise and informative text, this really is like having a marque expert beside you when viewing a potential purchase.

The author

Maurice Thurman has been hooked on Series Land Rovers ever since, as a schoolboy, he watched them picking their way through dense woodland in an off-road trial. He has since been driving them, on and off-road, in various parts of the world for over 25 years. As a retired teacher, he believes that knowledge gained from experience should be passed on. Maurice runs a website dedicated to Series Land Rovers, and writes books that are intended to be of benefit to dedicated Land Rover owners.
