JAKE WRIGHT'S INDEPENDENT LAND ROVER SPECIALISTS FOR OVER 40 YEARS OFFER FOR SALE
NOW SOLD BUT WE MAY HAVE SOMETHING SIMILAR PLEASE ENQUIRE .
Here for sale is a very nice series 2a land rover with 2.25 petrol engine.
This Land Rover was previously owned by an elderly gentleman who was no longer able to use it .
It is a very nice example of a series 2a in useable condition. with all the correct series 2a features.
It is unusual in that it has a "Tropical roof" (extra skin to prevent the sun from heating up the interior)) This roof is not from a Land Roevr Station Wagon as there are no vents or alpine lights fitted.
The other interesting feature is that there is an extra fuel tank fitted under the passenger seat with correct changeover tap on the bulkhead. It doesn't appear to be an EX Army Land Rover so it makes me think it may have been an export model.
The bulkhead is sound and the footwells have been replaced sometime in the past.
We have carried out work in order to get it up and running again as it had not been used for a few years .
The chassis is sollid and we have replaced the rear cross member and carried out some small repairs on the front chassis legs.
We have overhauled the brakes and new cylinders and shoes have been fitted .as required.
We have fiitted a new set of front seats which complement the originality and good looks of the rest of the vehicle.
All the door frames are in good condition including the reatr top flap and we have replaced the door tops .
The land rover steers and stops just as it should with no wondering on the road .
We have fitted newly painted wheels to match the hard top and these are fitted with radial tyres which are in as new condition.
A new weber carburettor has been fitted to give smooth running and good fuel ecoonomy.
We can remove the hardtop and fit a full length sof top if required .
All in all this is a very good looking useable series 2a land rover in which a new owner can have some fun taking the dog out or going for a ride with the kids on a sunday afternoon..
We can fit all sorts of extras including the following -
Built in 1968 2.25 litre petrol engine exported to India, returned to UK in 1982 has stood and not used for last 4 years until it was bought in 2017. It has been refurbished to very good level.Runs.....
