This 1982 Land Rover 88 Series III is reported to have been the recipient of a 1,000-hour+ frame-off nut and bolt restoration after being imported to the United States from South America. The restoration included a bare-metal repaint in Dodge Go Mango orange, a Raptor-lined undercarriage, an Exmoor Trim black full soft top, Exmoor Trim Deluxe front seats, an upgraded Speedhut instrument cluster, an American ash wood-lined cargo area with an integrated dry bar, a rebuild of the original 2.25L inline-four, an Old Man Emu balanced parabolic spring kit and shocks, 16” wheels with all-terrain tires, a P38 Range Rover power steering system, a custom stainless steel exhaust system, a Pertronix Flame Thrower ignition, LED headlights, and more. This custom-restored Land Rover 88 Series III is now being offered by its seller in Florida.
The body was removed from the chassis during the restoration, inspected for imperfections, and refreshed with OEM Land Rover parts where needed. The chassis was then sandblasted and coated, the undercarriage was coated with Raptor liner for corrosion resistacne, and the bodywork was stripped down to the bare metal, primed, and repainted in Go Mango (PVP). Equipment includes upgraded LED headlights and smoked side markers, an Exmoor Trim black full soft top, a front steel bumper, a hood-mounted spare tire, fender-mounted mirrors, a fold-down split windscreen, and an American ash wood-trimmed cargo door. Detailed images are provided in the gallery, along with photos taken during the restoration process. The OEM 16” steel wheels are finished in black and wear Toyo Open Country all-terrain tires sized 255/85/16.
The interior features two Exmoor Trim Deluxe front seats and two rear Exmoor Trim long jump seats upholstered in black vinyl. Amenities include an Exmoor Trim padded center console with integrated cupholders, a storage tray, and a Marshall Stockwell portable Bluetooth speaker, a custom American ashwood cargo deck with locking storage cabinets and a dry bar, rubberized floor mats, and Speedhut instrumentation with a GPS speedometer/tachometer, and 4 auxiliary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, voltage, and oil pressure.
The Land Rover 88 Series III is powered by a 2.25L inline four-cylinder engine rebuilt and fitted with a new Weber carburetor, a Pertronix Flame Thrower electronic distributor, and Pertronix ignition coils. All four wheels are driven by a 4-speed manual transfer and dual-range transfer case. Modifications include an Old Man Emu parabolic spring kit with Old Man Emu shocks, a power steering system sourced from a P38 Range Rover, and a custom stainless steel exhaust system.
