Lot details

Registration No: LVO 579E
Chassis No: 27107258C
MOT: Exempt

  • Fitted with a 2.25 litre diesel engine and Capstan winch
  • Previously treated to a respray and new interior
  • The IIA is deemed by many to be the ultimate Series Land Rover

A sympathetic update of its much-loved predecessor, the Land Rover Series II was introduced in April 1958. Featuring sill panels and a rounded wing / belt line, the newcomer’s sleeker sheetmetal was the work of David Bache and clothed an improved chassis. Thus as well as better rear wheel articulation and sharper steering, the Series II boasted wider axles and a new gearbox (complete with synchromesh on 3rd and 4th gears). Available with a choice of 2.25-litre petrol or 2-litre diesel four-cylinder engines, the Land Rover could be had in 88-inch or 109-inch wheelbase guises (though, the SWB model made do with a petrol 2-litre unit until September 1958). A popular model, the Series II accounted for some 62,000 sales in its first two years of production. Announced in 1961, the subtly upgraded Series IIA benefited from an improved cooling system and the arrival of a 2.25-litre diesel engine. Export models had their headlamps repositioned in the front wings for 1968 with domestic Landies gaining the same revised visage the following year. Phased out of production in 1971, the Series IIA is judged by some to be the most durable Series Land Rover ever made.

First registered in Nottinghamshire on May 1st 1967, this particular example entered the current family ownership forty-nine years later. Self-evidently the subject of much past restoration work including a respray and retrim, a rear window sticker attests to its presence at the 2002 Land Rover World Show. Not used for several years, this short wheelbase, diesel-powered Series IIA is now in need of recommissioning / refurbishment. The odometer currently shows an unwarranted 05,883 miles (could be 105,000 or 205,000?) which suggests that the Landie might have covered only twenty-three miles since passing its last MOT test on May 4th 2010. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document which notes just three previous keepers.
