Series Land Rover (Australia & NZ)
Series 3 Land Rover
Across Australia in a 1979 Land Rover Series 3
Having sorted out a route, Fred Kamphues opted for a Series 3 Land Rover as the vehicle of choice. He reasoned that, with its more robust mechanics and less sophisticated electrics, he was less likely to run into difficulties than with a modern computerised city 4WD. Similarly, a petrol engine would be easier to troubleshoot than a diesel.
His rationale was vindicated.The story is
told in several recent editions of Land
Rover enthusiast magazine.
His website and the articles provide a wealth of information
on equipment needed for such an expedition, give advice on
safety aspects to be considered and where to get the permits
