It’ll soon be 52 years since this Land Rover was first registered for use on our roads. Spotted on a quiet side street in Bristol, this one looks like it moves considerably more often than the 1959 Series II I featured at an earlier date.
Being a late Series IIA car, the head lamps are on the wings rather than either side of the grille as in earlier models.
Another visual difference with these later Series IIA Landies was the sill panels beneath the doors was narrowed to 3 inches rather than the 5 inch items used on earlier examples.
If the DVLA’s records are to be believed, then this 88in landy is likely still running the 2.25-litre four-cylinder petrol engine it left the factory with back in 1969.
Of course, no Land Rover of this era should be clean or ding-free and It certainly look as if this partly hand painted, chequer plated example has seen some shit in its time.
