Land Rover Series 2a 88" 1963 2.25 Petrol Very Original Example

We have on offer a truly remarkable vehicle with one owner for 44 years. During his ownership the correct specification 2.25 engine was fully rebuilt. The vehicle has been for most of its life in Australia and so is in immaculate rust free condition, with no welding to the chassis.

In the file is many reciepts showing recent recommitting work to the vehicle this includes new tyre, brake system overhauled, rewiring, bushes, propshaft, radiator, replacement swivels, seals, bearings, new leaf springs etc. So the vehicle has had a through recommissioning. Several thousand pounds have been spent on this vehicle.

The bodywork is all original and you can see from the pictures its evenly worn in the way that only steady use over a long period can do.

The canvas is lovely original condition.

The Land Rover is in one of the most classic colour combinations Bronze Green with matching body colour Wheels and hardtop it looks fantastic and is correct to the vehicle. It has never been painted and is in original paint.

To find an unmolested example has become very hard, but to find one that has such a good history file, only covered a low mileage, retains all of its original panels, its original chassis, engine, gearbox is becoming very hard.

The bodywork is very good and all the panels are straight with the exception of a very few dents and scraps. Which adds to the character of the vehicle.

The interior has original grey elephant hide seats. There is also the original jack and handle, starting handle and wheel brace behind the front seats. The vehicle even has it's original pressed footwells. The chassis is very good and hasn't even had a rear crossmember.

The load area is exceptionally clean and doesn't show any sights of heavy use. A matching pair of rear bench seats can be fitted if required.


One of the best original engine bays we have seen on a Series 2a, extremely clean with original stickers still in place. It even has the early lucas distributor cap like the Series 1's had. The petrol engine fires up and drives very well there is no smoke, it idles sweetly and has plenty of power. This is the early three bearing crank engine. The engine has been fully serviced by ourselves.

It is apparent that this is a vehicle that has been maintained and covered low mileage it runs as quiet and smooth as any Series Land Rover that we have ever had. It really is a credit to his work and maintenance over the years that the vehicle is still present in the such great usable condition.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will be supplied with a full 12 month mot. Four wheel drive and low range engage, as they should. The gears change up and down as they should it has a very quiet gearbox which is a good sign of it's light use over the years. It will be supplied fully serviced including engine, oil filter, main gearbox, transfer box, overdrive, diffs and the swivels.


Almost all Series Land Rovers we have had drip a little oil, this is an exception though no drips of oil to speak of even after standing for days in the same place. The steering is as it should be and the vehicle doesn't wonder on the road like some series vehicles do.


This is a very honest Series Land Rover. You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle.

Anything on this Land Rover that required attention has been done it is now faultless.
