Land Rover ® Series 2a *High Specification Ragtop* (GGF)


For sale, Land Rover ® Series 2a Ragtop in Light Pastel Green (1971).

Petrol 2286cc. Tax Exempt. MOT exempt. Parabolic Springs. Free Wheeling Hubs. 750 Tyres on LWB rims

We are delighted to present for sale this rare crossover Series 2a, in popular Light Pastel Green. 

On the outside, there are lots of nice features such as vintage numberplates, razor bonnet, maltese grill and wing-mounted mirrors.  A recent canvas has been fitted along with a recent set of galvanised sticks which will 'tighten up' as it gets wet. Free Wheeling hubs have also been fitted to maximise economy and limit front axle wear, along with a new set of our 750 military chevron style tyres mated to Long Wheel Base rims (these are deeper and give a more purposeful stance. These give the effect of an overdrive by extending the gearing ratios and are directional and self cleaning. The combination of these additions will afford better fuel economy and affording a more relaxed cruise. Recent works to the vehicle include a replacement rear cross member with extensions - a vunerable area on all old Land Rovers, so nice to see it's been recently replaced.

On the inside, the vehicle has a set of 3 deluxe seats, with deluxe matting to the footwells. There are belts fitted with a seat belt bar which gives modern 3 point inertia reel belting - a very useful addition over the standard static lap belts, and a good deal safer too.The interior also has a heater fitted with front demist - an expensive option from the factory. This truck also has deluxe interior trim in the form of door-cards along with deluxe interior carpeting to the front and the transmission tunnel. This gives a more luxurious feel over standard. The rear, although unfitted could house bench seats to maximise carrying capacity to seven occupants including the driver. 

Out on the road, the petrol engine coupled with the 750 tyres and free wheeling hubs give a pleasing, yet enhanced period driving experience. The engine is quiet and ticks over at low revs, and it pulls and stops just as it should. The engine starts very easily and sounds lovely with a press of the accelerator. The parabolic springs also aid with a more compliant ride over standard. All in all it feels quite relaxed and civilised! With the popular yet rare colour scheme, this vehicle attracts looks wherever it goes - and looks good in the summer sun! Equally, with good rubber and heater, this truck could be relied upon in poorer weather and driving conditions.

In summary then, if you are looking for a soft top 2a in popular colour scheme that won't break the bank, then this could be for you - and with MOT and tax exemption it should prove easy to live with. The additions of FWH, larger tyres and parabolic springs combine to make this a desirable all round package.
