V8 Land Rover first start in 2 years
Thos 1974 Series III 109 stripped a gear tooth (or several) a couple of
years ago and hasn't been run since. Purely out of interest, I decided to
see if it would still go, with impressive results. The Landy was originally
fitted with the 2.6-litre 6-cylinder IOE engine, but is now running a
3.5-litre Rover V8 with SU carbs from an SD1.
Will the V8 Land Rover start again?
Three years ago I did a cold start video of this Land Rover Series III and
now I thought I'd try again. Marvel as I fight cobwebs, moss growth and get
annoyed at some birds.

Land Rover's History
Land Rover is a British car manufacturer with its headquarters in Gaydon,
Warwickshire, United Kingdom which specialises in four-wheel-drive
vehicles. It is owned by the Indian company Tata Motors, forming part of
their Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) group. It is the second oldest
four-wheel-drive car brand in the world (after Jeep).
The Land Rover name was originally used by the Rover Company for one
specific vehicle model, named simply the Land Rover, launched by Rover in
1948. Over the following years it developed into a marque encompassing a
range of four-wheel-drive models, including the Defender, Discovery,
Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Land
Rovers are currently assembled in the company's Halewood and Solihull
plants, with research and development taking place at JLR's Gaydon and
Whitley engineering centres. Land Rover sold 194,000 vehicles worldwide in
Although the brand originates from the original 1947 model, Land Rover as a
company has only existed since 1978, prior to this it was a product line of
the Rover Company which was subsequently absorbed into the Rover-Triumph
division of the British Leyland Motor Corporation (BL) following Leyland
Motor Corporation's takeover of Rover in 1967. The ongoing commercial
success of the original Land Rover series models, and latterly the Range
Rover in the 1970s in the midst of BL's well documented business troubles
prompted the establishment of a separate Land Rover company but still under
the BL umbrella, remaining part of the subsequent Rover Group in 1988 under
the ownership of British Aerospace after the remains of British Leyland
were broken up and privatised. In 1994 Rover Group plc was acquired by BMW.
In 2000 Rover Group was broken-up by BMW and Land Rover was sold to Ford
Motor Company, becoming part of its Premier Automotive Group. In June 2008
Ford sold both Land Rover and Jaguar Cars to Tata Motors. - SUBSCRIBE!

To all you idiots commenting about how your bog-standard Lada Niva 1200 can
do better than this -- please note: it was Xmas day afternoon, I just got a
new iPhone I wanted to try out, we'd spent the morning washing and
polishing the Landy, and then we killed an hour doing a little shoot before
dinner. We didn't let the tires down. We didn't even want to get dirty, we
didn't want to get the truck dirty, in fact, we didn't even want to get our
shoes dirty. Sorry if you couldn't crack one on, but we all know you could
do much much better of course. And thanks for helping us get more than
