Land Rover® Series 2a *Galvanised Chassis Station Wagon* (KPX)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 2a in Marine Blue (1966). 

MOT until 13th November 2019, but MOT exempt anyway. Petrol 2286cc ACR Automotive Power-Plus Engine. SU Carburettor. Overdrive. Galvanised Chassis. Deluxe Elephant Hide Interior. Genuine Station Wagon. Parabolic Springs.

We are delighted for sale this very rare, genuine 2a Station Wagon, rebuilt onto a galvanised chassis. This is an extremely high-specification 2a, which benefits from free wheeling hubs, overdrive, 750 tyres, servo assisted brakes and ACR Automotive Engine Upgrade. 

Internally, much of the deluxe elephant hide interior remains in excellent order and this is very rare to see. The front seats are all serviceable, as are the lovely door cards with arm rests and fabric tunnel cover. The rear houses two of the original tip-up seats and on the other side there is a period, original elephant hide bench seat. It is very rare for such an interior to remain in serviceable order. The dash is largely unmolested and it is pleasing to see a fitted heater with demist and twin wipers. There is also an auxiliary panel which incorporates switches for additional lighting and a 12v socket for charging phones and using sat nav systems. These switches have been labelled for the new owner to assist in ownership. 

Externally, we feel this vehicle is very appealing - it sports all one would expect to see on a vehicle of this stature; a gloss, sprayed paint finish, galvanised front bumper, period-correct numberplates, towbar with electrics, rear grabhandles and mudflaps. The door mounted wing mirrors are also in keeping of this marque. All in all, this vehicle is a very smart 2a. 

Out on the road is where this vehicle really begins to shine. The ACR Automotive Upgraded 2286 engine is an absolute peach, and a very expensive sympathetic upgrade over standard. The engine bay looks fairly standard, but this engine has recently been fully rebuilt (9000 miles ago) and bored out to 2500cc, with uprated camshafts and ported head. An SU Carburettor with bespoke intake manifold and sports air filter is fitted and the combination of these factors gives almost twice the horsepower over standard 2286cc engines - whilst retaining the period look of the 2286cc unit. The addition of larger 750 tyres AND a working overdrive means that this old girl can keep up with modern day traffic in a way no other period 2a could, with the parabolic springs giving a much more compliant and comfortable ride over standard.... she really is a wolf in sheep's clothing! 

Vehicles of this type seldom come to market - that is the culmination of a genuine 2a station wagon with original interior, coupled with the rebuild and the galvanised chassis, with superb engine and suspension upgrades, overdrive and free wheeling hubs. Put all this together with the tidy bodywork and spray paint finish, and you have a vehicle covering all the bases.... so hard to find these days! 

If you are looking for a 2a station wagon with original interior but in a condition that can be used and loved on modern roads for many years to come, then this is the vehicle for you. This is truly a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional Series 2a. With tax and MOT exemption and classic insurance, it should also prove to be cheap to run long-term.
