1963 land rover Series IIa 88in 2.25 petrol soft top for sale at motodrome


Believed to be an ex-military white fleet (or possibly civil defence) vehicle, and comes with the transferable EWE numberplate as shown. Very nice if you’re into sheep…

Firstly, if you like your Series models to be in completely original spec, this one probably isn’t for you, as the wheels, mirrors, door hinges and wiper arrangement are either aftermarket or from later cars.

Fitted with: Overdrive, matching set of Toyo Open Country tyres on black modular rims, and towpack, Inside, it has a pair of deluxe seats in the front,  heater, and twin 2-man bench seats in the load area.

It’s fitted with a period-correct 251-prefix military-spec  2.25 petrol engine, and retains it’s original 1963 features including gearbox, razor edge bonnet,  sprung steering wheel, short handbrake, and deep sill covers.

Odometer reading 84000 miles, but we think this is incorrect and that it may have been fitted with a secondhand replacement speedo.

V5 only shows 2 previous keepers, and the last lady owner has had it since 2015

It’s ULEZ, road tax and MOT exempt – what’s not to like?
