This is my Land Rover Series IIA.
It’s an 88″ and has a 2.25 4 cylinder petrol engine. Unfortuneately it’s a bit of a mish mash of series 3 parts aswell, because I assume it was involved in an accident or something like that as the front wings and bulkhead are all series 3 parts, everything else is original.
I use her everyday to get to work and if I’m feeling ambitious I might drive more than five miles. I’ve fitted long wheelbase wheels and tyres and achieved a top speed of 75mph. (Don’t worry, it wasn’t measure from my “bouncing needle” speedo.)
Earlier this year I carried out a full cylinder head rebuild and lapped all the valves etc, I decided not to go balls deep and replace the springs etc.
I’d love to fit Range Rover axles or an overdrive to give me better miles per gallon etc, but I can’t find any for sale which aren’t going to hurt my wallet.
Well, after using the Land Rover as my every day drive for 6 months, I decided to sell it and go for something with a bit more comfort, fuel economy and speed. The old girl now resides with a friend down in Suffolk, who I’m sure will look after her.
