Series 2 / Series 2a / 3 Land Rover®

Know more about the Land Rover®  Series 2 and Series

The later series Land Rovers® can be a sound buy. The Series 2 Land rover® came out in 1958, initially sporting the original 2L engine from the series 1. The Series 2  and Series 2a Land Rovers® are largely the same beast, with very slight differences. The Series 2  is perhaps the most popular vintage Land Rover® for ownership, as these classic vehicles are perhaps the cheapest  and most pretty of the marque.

These classic vehicles were built with both petrol and diesel engines, the 2286cc unit which is still running strong to this day. Some people prefer the petrol engine, as they rarely give any trouble and can be easily tuned. You do get a few extra miles per gallon out of the diesel Land Rover®, but you lose power and refinement.

Fuel economy is a frequently asked topic. Many people quote 18mpg for the petrol Series 2a Land Rover® and 22mpg for the diesel Series 2 . We have, on some occasions managed to get nearer to 30 mpg on a longer run from a petrol unit – most people carry out small journeys and this reduces economy, as it would with any car. Good set up on your vehicle –  electronic ignition, free wheeling hubs, overdrive, and a healthy engine can all contribute.

Again, as with the series Land Rover®, if your vehicle is in well kept condition it should drive  well – albeit not like a modern vehicle! .

The Series 3 Land Rover® represents perhaps the best value. Early examples are now tax exempt too, which represents a good saving. Having a tax exempt Land Rover® is a big pull for some owners, but expect to pay a premium for such a vehicle. .  These vehicles are generally  the most comfortable of all classic Land Rovers®, and had a soft dash, better ride quality and synchro on all gears. They should be better to drive, with their modern servo brakes and comfy seats.

Any classic 4X4 from John Brown  should prove to be  a good investment. We even retain some vehicles ourselves for the same reasons!
