Advert Description

1970 reg, 41659 miles, Manual 2500cc Diesel, 2 door Pick Up, Green. The project to restore the 1970 series 2A began in 2008 with a local engineer and land rover enthusiasts putting heart soul and passion and blood and tears into this stunning series 2A.It was completed in 2011 and was kept in dry storage and used only on Sundays in the summer for local journeys.The vehicle had a full strip down and nut and bolt restoration to achieve a first class standard.The body was also painted off the chassis and rebuilt with care and detail.We have a photo library to show the full nut and bolt full strip down restoration.To ensure it was safer to drive and appealed to the wider market they fitted a 200 tdi engine complete with turbo intercooler and range rover differentials,FAIRLY OVERDRIVE and parabolic springs.The result...........................well truly amazing!!!!//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Many Land Rover historians consider the Series IIA to be the best of the Series models, it exists in a Goldilocks zone between refinement and simplicity before the crack-prone plastic dashboards of the Series III but after some engine and transmission improvements over the Series II. Land Rover used the Series IIA as a transitional model between the Series II and the Series III, the lights were moved from the grill to the front wings in 1969, a new diesel engine was offered (closely based on the 2.25 litre petrol engine), and in 1967 a 2.6 litre inline 6 cylinder petrol engine was introduced (for the LWB models). The production of the Series IIA ran from 1961 till 1971, a 10 year stretch that many remember as being the golden age of the British 44. It was a time before the Japanese had entered the market in any significant way and the American 44 manufacturers were more focused on their domestic market so Land Rover established themselves as the worlds pre-eminent off-road vehicle manufacturer. - See more at:
