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.
Originally registered on 5th April 1967, this Land Rover has been restored by the knowledgeable vendor. A new galvanised chassis has been fitted and the axles have been rebuilt. The 2286cc diesel engine started immediately when requested and appeared to run well. The paintwork has been refreshed and four new tyres have been fitted. This soft-top 88” Land Rover is a very good example of a 52 year old robust and highly durable vehicle. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this Series II Landy offers great value for money for the person looking for that classic 4x4 experience.
