1959 Land Rover® Series 2 *Galvanised Chassis Ragtop* (PSK) For Sale
For sale, through JOHN BROWN 4X4 LTD, Land Rover® Series 2 Ragtop in Marine Blue (1959).
Petrol 2286cc. MOT & Tax Exempt. Galvanised Chassis. Early Series 2 (not 2a) - only the 509th Series 2 (chassis number 146000509). 750 Modular Style Wheels and Tyres.
We are delighted to present for sale this rare, early Series 2 which has been rebuilt onto a galvanised chassis. The Series 2 (not the Series 2a) was built between 1958-1961, and there are a few subtle differences - the vent openers are the most telling aspect!
The exterior of this vehicle has a pleasing patina that we've opted to leave well alone - and there are lots of period features such as the vintage badging to the front grill, vintage plates, bonnet mounted spare, rear grabhandles, rear mudflaps and wing-mounted chrome mirrors. Some modern features have been added such as the towball and electrics, and the modern style modular wheels and tyres, which give a strong stance - BF Goodrich All-Terrain tyres are fitted all round giving the best compromise between on and off road driving conditions.
The interior of this vehicle is largely standard, with the notable addition of a passenger wiper (an option in these days!) and a heater, with front demist - handy for winter days. There are three front deluxe seats, with the outers being the 'highback' type with integrated headrest for additional comfort. If you look closely, you'll see those unusual vent openers above the dash - a key difference between the Series 2 & 2a.
Out on the road, this vehicle drives just as it should - it feels just like a vehicle should that has been previously rebuilt, and provides a superb period driving experience, aided by the larger, modern tyres which give additional gearing. The added bonus of a Galvanised Chassis is a delight - no worries about corrosion to the chassis in years to come, whilst still retaining the vintage charm.
