Lot 113 - 1972 Land Rover 90 Series II Soft-top
|Sold - £2,464
The Land Rover was designed with brilliant simplicity for extraordinary ability and unrivalled strength and durability. In fact, six decades on, it is estimated that two-thirds of all these incredible vehicles are still at work - many of them in some of the most extreme conditions and inhospitable places on earth. The original 1948 Land Rover was ingeniously designed and engineered for extreme capability and strength. With robust construction and characteristics such as short front and rear overhangs, it drove off the production line ready to take on some of the world's toughest terrain. It was the product of continuous evolution and refinement throughout the 1950's and 1960's with improved stability and a tighter turning circle and was a period in which Land Rover took the lead in the emerging market for four-wheel drive vehicles. As a tough, reliable mobility platform, countless organisations came to depend on Land Rover vehicles to get personnel and equipment into the most challenging situations…and then safely out again.
Originally registered on 20th April 1972 this very original Series II Land Rover has just had the front wheel bearings and joints replaced. Sitting on a good set of tyres we are advised she drives well and has proven to be reliable. With an odometer reading of 40,410 miles it is thought this could be correct but not warranted. In need of some restoration work this is a superb opportunity to improve or restore this iconic vehicle back to its former glory, offered at no reserve and offering strong investment potential.
