A sympathetic update of its much-loved predecessor, the Land Rover Series II was introduced in April 1958. The Series II accounted for some 62,000 sales in its first two years of production.

This interesting ‘Landie’ was, for many years, previously owned by an elderly couple who loved the vehicle's classic shape but hankered after something easier to drive, even going to the trouble to install electric windows and power steering. So, at considerable expense, they had the key mechanicals professionally updated courtesy of the diesel engine, 5-speed gearbox, suspension, braking system, dashboard and various other fittings from a 1995 Land Rover TDi. The IIA has recently had a turbo kit fitted and work completed on the braking system and an oil service. 'BHT 617A' is finished in Cream over Green that's complemented by Black interior trim. The indicated mileage currently stands at an entirely credible 125,615 miles. By the time of the Series IIA of 1961-1971, Land Rover production was at its all-time peak of over 60,000 vehicles per annum. The model is considered by many to be the most durable of all Series variants.
