A versatile Land Rover Series 2 SWB 88-inch presented in show winning condition.

Rigid box section galvanised chassis, light alloy body panels, steel fittings, adjustable draw bar pull, foldaway door steps, hinged heated front screen, tilt bed, bonnet mounted spare wheel holder, internally adjustable ventilation flaps, wing mounted mirrors, rear side seats, Smiths heater, twin wipers, electric screen wash, amperage gauge, front seatbelts, sliding windows, overdrive.

This iconic and very desirable early Series 2 Land Rover is finished in striking Marine Blue and presents in near immaculate condition. Attention to detail can be witnessed in all areas including the underside which will amaze spectators expecting to see utilitarian components plastered in mud rather than being very clean! Headlamps mounted in the grille area reveal the early design features favoured by many. Basic in all respects with a few exterior options such as the adjustable draw bar pull, foldaway doorsteps and immaculate colour coded Cotton Duck canvas hood. Being the Regular Truck Cab on the 88-inch chassis this quintessentially British classic will steal the hearts of many.

Sparse and utilitarian but packed with enduring Land Rover appeal this interior is truly sublime. Essential improvements such as the contoured black vinyl seats with seat belts combined with heavy duty Land Rover rubber floor mats add a little comfort. Beautifully detailed original features such as the Lucus independent wiper motors, working Smiths heater and ornate three-spoke steering wheel join all working controls and gauges. Modern discrete touches such as an electric screen wash and heated front screen are useful features. The rear has a tilt bed and side seats with a painted Marine Blue floor all in immaculate condition. Difficult to fault.

The four cylinder 2286cc petrol engine with overhead inlet and exhaust valves produces 77bhp and 124lbft of torque. Rugged simple engineering with the benefit of being gas flowed and an unleaded head, this engine has been proven worldwide. Meticulously detailed and spotlessly clean to allow bonnet up exhibiting. A tough four speed gearbox with a two speed transfer box gives eight forward speeds and two reverse. The desirable overdrive is fitted. A real ‘go anywhere’ machine.

The original factory pressed steel disc wheels are finished in Old English White which complements the Marine Blue bodywork perfectly. The wheels are shod in Avon Rangemaster tyres which all show plenty of tread. The hydraulically operated footbrake and the handbrake operating on the transmission shaft, performs well.

The Series II Land Rover was introduced in April 1958, exactly 10 years after the original was shown in Amsterdam in both “Regular” 88-inch and “Long” 109-inch models. Available in many different body styles and a selection of optional extra equipment this model has the optional Truck Cab This example was registered on the 5th May 1959 so still processes the agricultural character that is so synonymous with Land Rovers heritage. Exceptional in every respect, this Series II has been subject to a total ground up restoration, and is now ready to be cherished by its new custodian for many years to come. Original sales brochure, old MOT’s and spare keys.

MOT October 2018, Tax Exempt, HPI Clear.
