Footnotes

  • Inspired by the US Army’s wartime ‘Jeep’, developed in haste and intended for short-term, small-scale production, the Land Rover would defy its creators’ initial scepticism. Rover bosses the Wilks brothers saw the need for a tough, four-wheel-drive, utility vehicle to serve the needs of the agricultural community in the immediate post-war years, but the Land Rover’s runaway success took the company by surprise. The necessity of using corrosion resistant aluminium panels at a time of severe steel shortage turned into a positive virtue in the Land Rover’s sphere of operations, and the use of existing components - including the P3 saloon’s 1,595cc, four-cylinder, sidevalve engine - kept production costs down and cut development time. Progressively developed since its launch in 1948 and modified to serve countless specialist requirements, the ubiquitous Land Rover looks set to continue well into the 21st Century.
    This Series IIA Land Rover on the 88” wheelbase has the 2,286cc, 77bhp petrol engine option. The vehicle was acquired by the vendor 12 years ago for use as estate shooting-party transportation and is fitted with hardtop, rear seat and window. Accompanying expired MoTs (x7) record 5,450 miles covered between 1996 and the present, while new parts fitted/work carried out during this time include the clutch; full brake overhaul (drums, linings, cylinders); road springs; chassis rear cross member; and carburettor. Ill health forces the sale of this well maintained vehicle, which is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to November 2008 and Swansea V5 registration document.
