Footnotes

  • Some ten years after the original's introduction it was felt that the time had come to update the Land Rover's somewhat primitive slab-sided styling. The result was the Series II, which featured the more rounded sides that continue to characterise the Land Rover today. Introduced in 1958, the Series II was available with either the 2,286cc petrol engine or the newly developed 2,052cc diesel first seen in 1956 on what became known retrospectively as the 'Series I'. By this time the original permanent four-wheel drive freewheel transmission had been superseded by the more conventional selectable two- or four-wheel drive arrangement, with a set of low ratios available if required with the latter option selected. The Series II's arrival also marked the standardisation of only two different wheelbase lengths - 88" and 109" - the Series I's 107" option being dropped.

    This Series II Land Rover on the 88" wheelbase has been the subject of a total 'last nut and bolt' rebuild. We are advised that the original bodywork has been restored and the engine transmission and running gear overhauled, while the interior is described as exemplary. Accompanying documentation consists of a Heritage certificate and a substantial quantity of receipts and expired MoTs.
