Here is an absolutely beautiful 1965 Land Rover Series IIA that is in excellent  condition and has been restored to perfection by Himalaya4x4. com!!!! This  gorgeous Land Rover features one of the nicest restorations I have seen with  cost of restoration well into the 6 figures This Rover has had a no expense  restoration with upgrades along the such as a 350 horsepower V8 engine. late  model Land Rover Power Steering. 4 wheel Disc brakes. aluminum radiator. custom  stereo and an absolutely beautiful paint job on an aluminum body!!! 

This Rover has been the subject of a complete frame off rotisserie restoration.   The Rover has been gone through from tip to tail and from top to bottom with  every single component being replaced. restored or upgraded. One look at this  car and you will realize that this Land Rover is not like any Land Rover in the  world. This is something special and the truck just has that great crisp look to  it. with its beautiful paint job. great stance. gorgeous interior and tons of  tasteful upgrades.

The car has been driven since completion and the car drives excellent and is  very reliable. This is a rust free classic Land Rover and it is even nicer in  person than it is in the pictures. This car has been very well cared for and it  shows. This is a great collectible classic that is surely to appreciate in value  over the next several years!!! This Land Rover looks fantastic in its classic  light green paint job with contrasting matching wheels and freshly regalvanzied  trim. The paint job on this truck was completed to an incredibly high standard  and looks excellent.  

The car was completely disassembled. hood. trunk. doors. glass. trim etc. was  all removed and painted separately. Even the bottom side of the body car was  stripped down and repainted as well. This was a full body off rotisserie  restoration where even the bottom side of the floor pans were painted exterior  color. This truck truly has an immaculate body and paint finish. The body is  LASER straight and looks beautiful and has all of the proper riveted aluminum  bodywork. All of the rubber seals were replaced after the car was painted and  are all in great condition. Many man hours were spend getting the doors and  panels perfectly aligned and working with amazing precision. The paint job on  this car alone exceeds the cost of many classic Land Rovers. This is a car that  you could bring to a local car show and show it with pride. or you could go on  great weekend drives in.  

Overall the exterior is in excellent shape. The classic Black interior of this  Rover is like new and in excellent condition. The front and rear seats are like  new and in excellent shape. The carpet is like new and in excellent shape. The  dash is in perfect condition and is free of cracks etc. In-fact all of the  dash pieces have been replaced and are brand new. Every courtesy light. every  gauge etc. are all in great working order. There is a Ipod hookup in the  center console and there is a great sounding stereo installed complete with  subwoofers. This really is the ultimate Series IIA. Overall the interior of this  car is beautiful and is a great place to waste the weekend away.  

The 350 hp V8 fires right up and runs like a top. This engine has been  completely rebuilt and detailed to a showroom like finish. The engine runs  beautifully. It always starts and runs excellent just like a modern car. The  engine is estimated in excess of 350hp which is plenty powerful for a truck of  this size. The engine bay was sandblasted and refinished to a high standard. The  cars transmission was rebuilt at the same time and shifts beautifully. The  transmission shifts perfectly and is very responsive and smooth. This car  features power 4 wheel wheel disc brakes which stops the car very well. Best of  all there is no side to side pull while under braking since the car doesn't have  drum brakes. The car also feature a dual circuit master cylinder to aid in  safety as well.  

The power steering really makes this Rover easy to drive and much more  comfortable to drive daily. The engine sounds great with its exhaust exiting  under the rear valance. The car runs nice and cool even in Arizona's hot and dry  climate and features an aluminum radiator. The car steers beautifully with its  power steering and the car tracks perfectly down the road. The suspension has  been completely gone through as well. All rebuilt and all new components. The  bottom side of this truck is as well finished as the top side. I can not stress  enough at how every inch of this car has been gone through and virtually every  component rebuilt or replaced.  

This truck really is a blast to drive!!! Classic Land Rovers are getting more  and more desireable and collectable. Trucks that are this nice are even  difficult to find! Most have just been slapped together to look nice on ebay.   Lots of love. attention to detail and money (almost 200k) have been poured into  this car. As a result. this car looks and drives beautifully. This is not just  another Series IIA this is something special. this Land Rover is sure to make  its new owner happy. These classic trucks are getting more and more collectible  and as a result they are becoming investment grade. This car earns lots of  thumbs up every where you go and is a pleasure to drive. It would make a great  daily driver or a weekend show piece.
