The dashboard, the manual accelerator, the windows are from a Series 3. Maybe the gear level is from a IIA or II. The series 3 start their production in 1971, but there are models of transition. But to be honest I don't what kind of items are included in the transition models.

Only for the interior, is a series 3. But show more pictures of the exterior to conclude it better.

As i mentioned in the 'switching off' topic that my interior is the double of a series 3! could it be a series 3? is there any key features that would identify which series i have?

I went up and looked at this truck last week and reckoned it was a series III. Didn't drive it though or look at the documents. Looking underneath it was enough for me! :o
