Arriving in 1979, the Stage 1 was the first step in Land Rover’s two-stage development that would see the Series III evolve into the One Ten by 1983. Stiff competition from Japanese imports, and pressure from Middle Eastern consumers greedy for more horsepower, persuaded Land Rover to upgrade the 109 with the (detuned) engine and LT95 transmission from the Range Rover. To show off their efforts they also borrowed some colourful paints from Triumph, including, as this model shows… Pageant Blue.
This is a County Station Wagon (that means seating for 12 ‘friends’) boasting a fresh MoT with no advisories, despite having barely left its Hammersmith garage for the last seven years. It’s still SORNed so it’ll probably feel a bit creaky, and the owner describes it as ‘not cosmetically perfect’. But judging from the methodical way he has preserved the service history and fitted period-style Avon Rangemaster tyres, you're probably looking at a cherished, if neglected, Land Rover. Muddy tracks and off-road sites are hard to find in Hammersmith, which is another good sign. It’s even LEZ compliant!
