My 1962 Land Rover 109 5 door Series IIA Safari Station Wagon (Left Hand Drive) with 78563 original miles. It is registered in Colorado with a clear diesel title. Feel free to email me questions-

With the power steering and diesel power- It drives really well. handles well on tight turns and corners. It is an awesome truck! I am really sad to part ways with it.  

This truck has been a frame off/up rebuild. Starting in 2012. the truck was completely taken down to the frame. This truck brings the old feel of the Series IIA Safari rig feel with a number of upgrades for comfort and performance.

Every item on this truck has been gone through very thoroughly. Since buying this vehicle I have upgraded and overhauled most of the vehicle to make it a reliable/dependable vehicle for every day driving as well as remote off highway travel.

Mechanically the truck has essentially been completely redone.  I unfortunately cannot keep this truck (which was my dream Rover) - and need to sell it to help pay for my children's school.

Of note:
*When doing the Diesel Conversion. I switched to the Defender front end for the grill and hood to allow for more room in the engine compartment.

Starting with:
*New Galvanized frame
*Engine: Land Rover Defender 200TDI
