1971 Land Rover Series IIA 88 SOLD

Land Rover Series IIA 88” 2.25P

1971 | 3dr Hard Top | 2.25 Petrol | 4 Speed Manual | Deep Bronze Green with Limestone Roof | Galvanised Chassis | Freewheeling Hubs | MoT’d


Series IIA ‘Hard Top’ model on a replacement galvanised chassis. Original specification, 2.25l 4cyl 3 main bearing petrol engine coupled to a 4spd manual transmission. High/Low Range, selectable 4wd. Weber carburettor. Salisbury rear axle. Freewheeling Hubs. 5 x LWB steel wheels with 7.50x16 crossply tyres. Tow ball and 7-pin electrics. Twin windscreen wipers with electric washer.


The Series IIA is considered by many the hardiest Series model constructed, having the same main design as the original Series 1, but improved upon in many areas. It is the type of classic Land Rover that features strongly in the general public's perception of the Land Rover, and the same basic shape was carried right through to the most recent Defender, which only last year ceased production after its long 67 year life span.

This particular vehicle is a solid example of the traditional short wheel base (88”) ‘Hard Top’ model, registered in 1971. The standard ‘two and a quatre’ petrol engine starts readily from cold settling into a steady tick over, and is ready and willing on the road, cruising at 50mph happily thanks to the LWB wheel and tyre combination. The brakes pull the vehicle up to a stop nicely and the steering is in good order. All gears select correctly and the low range and four-wheel drive options all work as they should including the FWHs. Uphill or down dale, this Landy is capable of getting you where you need to go no matter the weather conditions.

The Land Rover has been stripped and rebuilt onto a new galvanised chassis at some stage in the past, meaning that structural corrosion isn’t an issue here if well looked after, and will continue to give decades of good service. A Salisbury rear axle from a LWB Land Rover was fitted for added strength, so there should be no worries about half-shaft breakages here! The bulkhead is believed to be original, but has been repaired to a good standard with replacement footwells. The panel work is straight with no major creases or dents, however the paint job has been brush/roller painted to varying degrees of quality in the past, so is best described as being in charming working clothes!

The interior is your usual spartan, hose-out affair with three vinyl seats across the front (3-point seatbelts fitted to the outer seats), plus a pair of two-man bench seats in the rear – just as it needs to be! Even though the vehicle is tax and MoT exempt, it has had a clean MoT issued which is valid until 17th October 2019. The odometer reads 91,054 however we are unable to verify whether this is correct.

This proper old Landy would be a great investment that you can use properly for Land-Rovery things at the same time… Putting muddy dogs in after a days shooting, taking garden waste to the tip or getting to the pub in two foot of snow! If you require additional changes i.e. a full canvas top, different wheels and tyres etc, these are things we can carry out for you, just get in touch to discuss your needs.


We have described the vehicle as accurately as we can, but please take your time looking through the photos. Viewing is most welcome, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. All funds must be cleared before the vehicle can be taken away. We are happy to take deposits to reserve vehicles, however this is non-refundable fee agreed on point of sale, and is valid for 7 days at which point the full balance must be settled and collection or delivery arranged.

This vehicle is for sale on behalf of a client, therefore we are unable to offer any warranty on this vehicle.

The vehicle must be collected from our premises near Church Stretton, Shrewsbury. We can also arrange UK delivery by trailer if you so require.
