The Series IIA was in production from 1961 to 1971, and is considered by many to be the most rugged of all the classic Land Rovers. The Series II became the IIA when the diesel engine was bored out to match that of the petrol version at 2 ¼ litres.
The next major change to the Land Rover happened in 1967, when the 2.6 litre, 6-cylinder, petrol engine was introduced as an option on the 109 inch models. A year later, the headlights were moved to the wings, to improve the spread of light, and in 1969 - 1970 sales of the Series IIA reached a remarkable 60,000 per year.
YOA 701J is one of the last Series IIAs produced, being first registered 8th July 1971. Little is known of its early history, but in later years this Land Rover has been in service at a local gliding club.
It is believed that this Series IIA was last on public roads in 1989, and no paperwork now exists. However the engine has been converted to run on L.P.G, and is in use daily, and has been well maintained mechanically.
