18 Months Gone: 1973 Shorland Mk3 Armored Patrol Car – SOLD!

July 16, 2021 Update – Based on the comment by Daniel reporting that he bought this Armored car, we can now call this one “SOLD!” and we hope he provides more pictures and he sorts out this awesome tactical vehicle!

July 4, 2021 Update – while the seller of this Shoreland Armor car  “Classifind” just deleted their listing, given their past history we suspect may not actually be sold yet.  For now, we’re labeling this ride “Sold?” However, we will keep an eye out for an updated listing. 

June 6, 2021 Update – Both the Internet and GuysWithRides.com never forget.  Our latest update is on this unique 1973 Shireland Armoured patrol car we originally featured in the Fall of 2019. With the pandemic underway and turmoil across the country for much of 2020, we’re assuming the owner elected to keep this vehicle “Just In Case.” With the seller once again relisting their Armored escape pod for the first time in fourteen months at a much lower price, we’re taking that as a positive sign things are getting better.

December 27, 2019 Update – we first featured this 1973 Shorland Armoured Patrol Car back on October 4, 2019, and in proof, this is not something for everyone, we noticed it’s still available for $38,000 in an updated post which we’ve revised below.  Good luck with the purchase!

Worried about the Zombies coming? If so, do you only need room for you, two other Apocalypse survivors, and a supply of MREs? Well, originally posted in October 2019 and eventually sold in July 2021 in Palm, Pennsylvania is a 1973 Shorland Mk3 Armoured Patrol Car that fits the bill.  Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool for a 1973 Land Rover Series III as a proxy, the private seller has his Shorland priced $5,600 above the #2 “Excellent” estimate, so the premium asked here is for the low 18,000 original miles combined with the rare optional smoke grenade launchers.

The Shorland is an armored patrol car designed specifically for the Northern Ireland Police Force to deal with uprisings and terrorist attacks.  You’ll have to get the story of how this vehicle made it all the way from Northern Ireland to Allentown, Pennsylvania.  If you learn more, please share it with us below.

Fully armored, this patrol car still features a 360 rotating turret, optical periscope, and smoke grenade launcher.  Equipped with four-wheel drive and unspecified ground clearance, you’ll be the envy of your fellow Constitutional Militia members as you lead the way back in the woods to your hidden headquarters.  When you’re not busy preparing for the end of civilization, just keep this parked in your driveway facing out to keep your neighbors in check.  Good luck with the purchase!

 We’d love to hear your thoughts about this vehicle.  Comment below and let us know!
