The 1963 Land Rover Series IIA was a versatile and rugged off-road vehicle produced from 1961 to 1971. It was available in a variety of body styles including a two-door pick-up truck, a three door station wagon, and a two door utility vehicle. It was powered by a 2.25 litre four-cylinder engine that produced 72bhp and 114 lb-ft of torque. The 1963 Land Rover Series IIA had a number of updates over its predecessor, including improved seating and larger windows. It also had a new gearbox, a revised dashboard, and a more powerful engine. It was known for its excellent off-road capabilities, thanks to its sturdy construction, high ground clearance, and four-wheel drive system. It was commonly used by farmers, military organisations, and adventurers alike.
This superb example of this iconic British four-wheel drive model has been the subject of a major rebuild and is presented in dark green with a tan interior. It was declared manufactured in 1963 and served in the Ministry of Defence until 1971 when it was then UK registered. It has recently been rebuilt on a galvanised chassis with new panel, Exmoor trim tan seats, new canvas roof covering and frame. Its original steering wheel has also been refurbished and covered in the same tan material to match the seats and stitching. This is probably one of the finest examples of this Land Rover model we have seen with the underside looking as good as the rest of the vehicle. Today, the 1963 Land Rover Series IIA is a sought-after classic car and is highly prized by collectors and enthusiasts for its rugged charm and timeless design.
