Land Rover® Series 2a *Galv Chassis Rebuild* (NBJ)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 2a ragtop in Drab Olive (1967)

12 months MOT will be supplied upon sale.  Tax Exempt.  Petrol 2286cc with Weber carb conversion. Galvanised chassis rebuild.

We are delighted to present for sale this beautiful, rebuilt 2a - this vehicle was rebuilt onto a new galvanised chassis in around 2012, and little used since due to ill health of the old boy who carried out this very thorough work.

The rebuild was described to us as "nut and bolt", and whilst we are mindful of using terms like this, we can confirm that the rebuild has resulted in a vehicle which sounds and drives as well as the finest we have seen - the build was carried out in an almost "military" style finish, with matt style paint finish, which we think looks lovely - smart enough to be seen in, but not so shiny you'd be afraid to use complete this look there is a military style bumper with bumperettes to the front and rear, wing mounted mirrors, bonnet mounted spare, (virtually brand new tyres all round), lamp guards, towbar with electrics and mudflaps. The canvas is a recent fitment, as the old canvas that was in perfect condition, was worn. Once shrunk by the rain, this will look and fit much better than currently!

The interior is a very smart place, and nice and original, with  three front seats in like new order, plus twin rear bench seats of the same standard. Deluxe matting is fitted throughout. The same attention to detail to the interior has been afforded, and this has resulted in a vehicle where EVERYTHING works really well - from temp gauge, to wash wipe - really well done!

Out on the road the story continues....the engine is so quiet, that, at lights, one assumes the engine has stalled! It's a cracking unit, which we are guessing has had some attention to get i to that level also. The whole driving experience is just lovely - smooth, quiet, refined, great steering, sharp brakes - we haven't driven a better one! It appears that much work has been done in addition to the fitment of a galvanised chassis.

In summary, this is, in our opinion, a delightful, rebuilt, 2a ragtop, benefitting from that galvanised chassis, and much work besides. With tax exemption, classic insurance, and no more MOT's after this one it should also be a great way to invest your money without too much hassle or upkeep!
