This delightful long wheelbase Series Land Rover has remained in the same family and even at the same address from new, and travelled a mere 48,000 miles to date. A desirable Series IIA model, it was purchased new by the vendor's father in July 1966, and its original specification included overdrive, freewheeling hubs and soundproofing. Pleasingly unmolested to this day, `HVO 628D' retains its original (unwelded) chassis, 2.25-litre diesel engine and Blue factory paintwork. The vendor inherited the Landie in 2007 and nowadays grades the bodywork and paintwork as `very good', the engine and fourwheel drive transmission as `good' and is offering the off-roader complete with a comprehensive history file that includes MOTs verifying the vehicle's low mileage and the original sales invoice. By the time of the Series IIA of 1961-1971, Land Rover production was at its all-time peak - over 60,000 vehicles per annum - and the model dominated 4x4 markets around the globe.
