1967 LAND ROVER SERIES IIa 88in PETROL SOFT TOP FOR SALE AT MOTODROME

SPECIFICATION ETC

Fitted with: correct wing mirrors and a matching set of 5 recent 600×16 tyres – it looks (and drives) just as it would have done when it rolled out of the supplying dealer in 1967.

Inside it has 3 seats across the front, a pair of twin rear benches in the load area (making it a 7 seater at a pinch) and floor mats.

It’s fitted with a period-correct 252-prefix 2.25 engine with Weber carburettor conversion

FURTHER DETAIL

Odometer reading 69000m, which, whilst we can’t warrant it, is possibly correct. The speedo was recently rebuilt and seems accurate.

Acquired  it as a proper barn find in 2018 (we’re told it had been off the road since 1997), the then owner sent it to a Land Rover specialist with a brief to sympathetically restore it, not to concours standard, but to make it a fantastically presentable and useable example, and I think he achieved this as it both looks and drives absolutely superbly.   For example, the black centre dash panel, oil bath air filter etc have been left with 50+ years of patina, rather than being freshly painted etc.

We have bills for, but not limited to, full brake overhaul/replacement, electrical overhaul, new seat boxes and floors front and rear, new fuel tank, and in May 2021 it was treated to a reconditioned rear differential, new rear halfshafts, a recored radiator and a full service including replacement of all the underside fluids.

In 2019 it was sent to the well-regarded GT Paintworks in Lymington (who normally paint yachts) for the body and paintwork, and in my opinion they’ve done a really superb job – it’s at least as good as it would have been when it rolled out of Solihull in 1967. For example, the doors both fit and close properly..

I’ve driven it extensively and I can confirm it’s absolutely on the button. I doubt you’ll find a nicer one, and it’s nice to see one in period-correct specification
