1969 Land Rover Series IIA 88" for saleCurrent customer rating: (252 votes) based on
The Series II Land Rover replaced Series I production in 1958. br/>initially sporting the original two litre engine from the series I.
Once supply ran dry. the 2286cc engine was introduced. which has
proven to be a popular and reliable unit ever since. Designs
changed over the following years. with the most significant being
the moving of the headlights to the wings in 1969 - this model
still had the 'hard dash' familiar with other Series II models.
Also introduced at this time was the razor style bonnet and Maltese
grill; later to be followed by the plastic grill as used on the
Series III. The SII and the SIIA are very difficult to distinguish.
There were some minor cosmetic changes but the most significant
change was under the bonnet in the guise of the new 2. 25-litre
diesel engine. Body configurations available from the factory
ranged from short-wheelbase soft-top to the top-of-the-line
five-door station wagon. From February 1969 (home market). the
headlamps moved into the wings on all models and the sill panels
were redesigned to be shallower a few months afterwards.
This particular Series IIA is running with the four cylinder. br/>2286cc petrol engine and freewheel front hubs. We are informed that
everything works as it should and that this Land Rover has a nice
feel to it. The bodywork is hand painted and. although it shows
signs of being used. it is in good order and. importantly on this
model. has a good bulkhead. The driver and passengers. front and
rear. may enjoy open country motoring but a good rag top will
protect them from the elements when required. It has been used by
the current owner for light country pursuits such as point to point
and the like and will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test
certificate. Offered at no reserve. we feel that this Land Rover
offers great value for money for the person looking for that
classic 4x4 experience.
