Land Rover® Series 2a *Rare Crossover Model* (RND)

Sold

For sale, Land Rover® Series 2a in Marine Blue (1971).

Petrol 2286cc. MOT Exempt. Tax Exempt. Rare Crossover Model. Overdrive. Heater with front demist. Significant folder of previous MOT's, odometer readings and receipts. 750 tyres on Modular Style Wheels. Weber Carburettor with Large Bore Exhaust.

We are delighted to present for sale this smart Series 2a, in rare crossover model. These vehicles were only made for a period of two years between 1969 and 1971, paving the way for the transition to the Series 3 model - retaining the 'hard dash' with the dials in the centre of the vehicle. 

On the outside, this vehicle has lots of nice period features - the bonnet mounted spare, vintage numberplates, rear grabhandles and door mounted round vintage mirrors. Some modern items have been added such as the rear step to allow easier rear passenger access, rear towball and electrics to allow towing and a working rear spot (switched inside the cabin) which would be ideal for reversing, working on dark evenings or providing some added illumination where required. 750 tyres on modular style wheels have been added, to give a purposeful stance and aid gearing at speed for a more relaxed cruise. Ultimately, this seems the ideal marriage of period look but with modern usability considered. 

The interior houses a set of deluxe front seats complete with seatbelts, with deluxe matting to the footwells. A square heater has been fitted beneath the dash, along with front demist - handy for those cold winter mornings. The rear houses a load mat along with a pair of twin benches to allow seating for seven. If required, rear side windows could be added for £495 to give a station wagon effect. 

Out on the road is where this old girl really shines - the additional power from the Weber carburettor and larger exhaust makes getting to speed easier, and the marriage of the 750 tyres along with the overdrive makes for a relaxed cruising experience, whilst giving the benefit of increased economy. It gives the best period driving experience one can expect, and can comfortably keep up with modern traffic flow. The suspension on this particular vehicle is also extremely smooth and compliant - it is entirely a standard set up, however it rides as well as a Series Land Rover® can!

In summary then, if you are looking for a Series 2a that won't break the bank, then this could be for you. The added benefit of classic insurance and MOT and tax exemption means it should prove cheap to run in the long term. Coupled with the superior driving experience over standard and the tasteful modern upgrades, this vehicle is ready to enjoy for the next owner.
