Known History

From 1958-1971, the Land Rover range consisted of two series (II and IIA), offered on two different chassis: the 88in short-wheelbase (SWB) and 109in long-wheelbase (LWB). The four-cylinder engine was available in petrol or diesel form, with an optional six-cylinder unit on the LWB model. A wide range of different body styles was offered.

The vehicle presented here is a Series IIA SWB, with the 2.3-litre petrol engine, a Hardtop model with the removeable roof. Sold new in the United States, its first owner kept it until 1991. Numerous service bills are included in the history file. Its second owner, from New York State, had a complete restoration carried out from the galvanised chassis up. The entire body was removed, restored and repainted. In 1994, it emerged from this restoration in such impressive condition that it was considered by British Rover of Vermont to be "certainly one of the finest Land Rovers in existence". The entire hood is new. The last major service bill dates from 2019, when its owner spent some 16,200 USD to ensure it ran perfectly. This is a superb example, with four foldaway seats in the rear. It is one of those 4WD vehicles which possess exceptional off-road abilities, making it an essential addition to any collection.
