Lot 338 - 1966 Land Rover Series IIa
|Odometer reading||55,119 miles|
|Result||Sold - £6,200|
The Land Rover Series IIa is considered by many to be the hardiest Series model constructed. It is also quite possibly the model that features most strongly in the general public's perception of the Land Rover, from its many appearances in popular films and television documentaries set in Africa throughout the 1960s, such as Born Free. In February 1968, just a few months after its manufacturer had been subsumed, under government pressure, into the Leyland Motor Corporation, the Land Rover celebrated its twentieth birthday, with total production to date just short of 600,000, of which more than 70% had been exported. It was whilst the Series IIa was in production that sales of utility Land Rovers reached their peak, in 1969-1970, when sales of over 60,000 Land Rovers a year were recorded.
This rare and quirky looking Series IIa 109" pick-up is fitted with a Harvey Frost pick-up crane. Presented in red with a black interior and sign written ‘Ricks Salvage Wolverhampton‘. This Land Rover has benefitted from a fully galvanised chassis and the vendor informs us that she drives well and starts first time. This no reserve Land Rover is offered to auction with a V5C registration certificate and is ready to be enjoyed immediately.
