1968 Land Rover Series IIA
Galvanised chassis; Ford 3.0-Litre conversion; lots of useful extras; a very smart Land Rover
We don't know when this 1968 88" Series II was given the full treatment, but it has certainly been built up from scratch on a new galvanised chassis, replacement bulkead and uprated with a Ford V6...of three litres we believe.
Mated to its original transmission, it has a stainless exhaust and parabolic springs with uprated shock absorbers which make a world of difference to the ride quality.
The bodywork has been professionally repainted Grasmere green and looks nice and straight, with very few battle scars. Whoever did the work made a very nice job of it, including fitting a substantial steering guard and two front tow eyes.
Little extras abound, such as the sunshade, LED lighting set, side-opening tailgate and note by fuel filler which states it uses 'Rocket Fuel' - perhaps easier to come by than E5 these days.
The interior is well-ordered with three Exmoor front seats and good side-facing rear seats with belts for the kids. It has a recent tilt which is in excellent condition. The doors have been replaced and have Rocky Mountain tops too.
It is finished off with some tasteful cosmetic additions, be they the wheels/tyres, the steering guard or the Dukes Of Hazzard General Lee horn that always gets attention when sounded! The vendor says that the vehicle always puts a smile on the driver's face and never fails to get a wave from fellow Landy enthusiasts and garners attention from those 'in the know' when in the supermarket car park.
