1959 landrover series 2 in stunning condition For Sale
1959 series 2 swb 88 petrol.
(headlights in the front panel), arguably the most iconic land rover ever produced.
4 years ago this classic series 2 land rover underwent a full 'ground up' nut and bolt rebuild to a very high standard, which took 18mths to complete
the original vehicle was stripped to its component parts, right down to the original chassis, which was repaired where needed and painted, and there the rebuild started.
the 2.25 petrol engine was in remarkably good condition before the rebuild, the mileage is now showing 55,000 which could be genuine it certainly sounds and feels like a low mileage car, it pulls like a train even on steep hills in 4thgear and will do a steady 50mph on the motorway.
it was given a full service and fitted with new oil pump, new water pump, new plugs, leads and coolant and a brand new weber carberetta. The engine was then painted in the correct light green.
new copper brake pipes and unions were fitted.
it is fitted with a new fuel sender unit.
the vehicle also benefits from a complete brand new 'autosparks' wiring loom, new rear lights and halogen headlights.
the bulkhead was taken off and sent away to be stripped down and all rot cut out and replaced with new metal, before being primed and painted in land rover bronze green.
brand new door bottoms and brand new glazed door tops, along with new door lock assemblies.
apart from the doors, the rest of the body panels were in great condition before the rebuild started, including the wings and rear tub, which are normally bashed up. The whole vehicle was stripped to bare metal, then flatenned, primed and resprayed in 2 pak deep bronze green.
a complete hood stick set comes with the car but is not fitted.
the wheels were shot blasted before being primed and powder coated in limestone green, along with brand new 205x16 radial tyres. New rear lights and halogen headlights.
a brand new set of front seats were purchased. The round smiths heater was restored and takes pride of place on the bulkhead.
mot and tax
the vehicle is road tax and mot exempt.
in my opinion, this is the best restored series 2 on the market today. If you are looking for a nice series 2 to keep in your collection and cherish for years to come then you will not be dissapointed when you see this.
since the rebuild the vehicle has been in a dry garage and only ever driven on sunny days.
viewing is welcome and encouraged.
