For sale, through JOHN BROWN 4X4 LTD, Land Rover® Series 2a in Green (1963).
Petrol 2286cc. MOT Exempt. Tax Exempt. Station wagon configuration, with highback seats and sunroof. Stereo and Speakers. 750 all-terrain tyres with matching spare.
We are delighted to present for sale this Series 2a and whilst it may not be for the purist, this would suit as an ideal vehicle for the person who wants to use their vehicle more frequently, in a more comfortable environment.
On the outside, this vehicle has lots of period features such as the vintage numberplates, front vintage badges, front and rear bumperettes, rear mudflaps, bonnet mounted spare and rear lamp guards. There are also notable modern additions such as the front spots, drivers lamp and windscreen shade (to protect against items hitting the windscreen and smashing it). There is a rear spot for additional visibility and an additional fuel jerry can for increased range. The two-tone colour scheme of green and limestone, coupled with the decals, all in all make for a vehicle that looks ready to take on any journey - be it an exhibition, greenlanes, or even a trip to the shops!
The interior houses two highback seats in the front, with twin benches to the rear, giving seating for six. The passenger footwell has had a high-power additional heater fitted with front demist - handy for cold winter mornings. There is a sunroof fitted along with a dome light and a stereo - fitted into the headliner above the rear view mirror (as pictured). Deluxe matting is fitted throughout & the grey carpet has been fitted to a high standard. All the additional equipment is neatly switched to the left of the steering wheel, and labelled accordingly.
Out on the road, this Series 2a drives just as it should, delivering a pleasing period driving experience which is aided by the additional soundproofing and larger tyres for a more relaxed and civilised cruising experience.
In summary then, if you are looking for a period Series 2a which can be used for longer trips in a more civilised fashion, then this could be for you. The added benefit of additional soundproofing, stereo and speakers, highback seats and high-power heater make this machine more suited to longer distances in relative comfort. With the added benefit of classic insurance and tax and MOT exemption it should also prove cheap to own in the long term - and with the additional equipment and bulky tyres should be ideal to tackle any off-roading task ahead of it.
