Land Rover® Series 2a *Tax Exempt Ragtop* (ELP)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 2a in Mid Grey (1970)

MOT until July 31st 2018 and Tax Exempt.  Diesel . Free Wheeling hubs.  Recently rebuilt onto a  brand new  chassis.

Here we have for sale a "crossover" model 2a, presented in popular soft top configuration. 

Externally, this vehicle sports the Maltese grill and headlights in the wings with hard dash, as was produced from 1969-1972. This model was the inspiration for the Series 3 and not many were made. It boasts a set of 750 tyres for increased ride height and better cruising, wing mounted mirrors, period plates, bonnet mounted spare and a brand new canvas. Free wheeling hubs and a Kenlowe fan aid in the fuel economy department, which, in conjunction with the diesel engine, should give better economy than the outgoing petrol unit. Aluminium door tops are also fitted, so they won't rust - a nice addition. It is also pleasing to see all the cappings survive in original galvanised condition, including the front bumper.

The interior has three good front seats, and there are deluxe mats throughout. The rear is unfitted, but bench seats can be added if so desired. There's a heater, and it's nice to see the correct "hard dash" one associates with a 2a model.

This old girl fires up easily and drives at it should. 

Perhaps where this vehicle stands apart from others is the fact that it's recently been treated to a new, replacement chassis - so it's as strong now as it was in 1970. This is a real bonus, as it effectively means that the vehicle will not require welding or chassis work for many years - it also means that during that process, other jobs get done, and new parts get fitted.

In summary, if you are looking for a sturdy, tax exempt soft top 2a then this is worth a look.
