Land Rover ® Series 2a *MOT & Tax Exempt* (UFL)


For sale, Land Rover ® Series 2a in Deep Bronze Green (1971).

MOT exempt. Tax Exempt. Petrol 2286cc. Free Wheeling Hubs. 750 tyres. Recent canvas and seats.

We are delighted to present for sale this smart Series 2a crossover, previously sold by us in 2016 as a built-to-order vehicle. In these instances, our team bespokely build a vehicle to client specifications - and as the photos show this was quite a high-specification build back then. The previous owner loved the car dearly, and it only endured light use during his ownership. The exterior has lots of pleasing features, such as vintage numberplates, rear grab handles, front towing hooks, larger defender door mirrors, towball and electrics, free wheeling hubs to aid economy and limit axle wear, and a set of our own 750 military tyres, which increase gearing, have unrivalled off & on road ability and are self cleaning. In addition to this, a recent canvas is fitted (done during the build) along with period correct bonnet mounted spare. This creates, in our opinion, a very handsome machine. 

The interior is largely standard, with three recent front seats fitted (again, during the build) along with deluxe matting in the footwells. The rear, although unfitted, could house bench seats to increase carrying capacity to seven occupants including the driver. There are no nasty surprises in here - just a pleasing period correct finish and it is a pleasure to sit in. The previous owner also specified a heater, which is pumped in and blows hot air into the cabin on two speeds.

Out on the road, the customer requested modifications give an enhanced period driving experience. The petrol engine is whisper quiet, and the 750 tyres, along with free wheeling hubs, extend the gearing to make cruising easier whilst delivering the best possible economy on longer runs, bearing in mind the period engine. It stops and goes just as it should. 

In summary then, if you are looking for a refurbished Series 2a, then this could be for you. This price demonstrates a significant saving over 'ordering one yourself', as all the hard work has already been done. It is ready to enjoy, come rain or shine, and should prove to be a sound investment for the future.
