Footnotes

  • This 1959 Land Rover Series IIA with Safari roof presents itself as a rare opportunity. Originally purchased new by the vendor's father, the car was inherited by the vendor in April 2003 and is effectively a one owner vehicle. The engine has not been running or driving for 7 years however, so recommissioning is also recommended. The car also comes equipped with a factory Safari hardtop and front mounted winch. One owner examples such as this are extremely rare, and this IIA offers great potential as a project. An opportunity not to be missed.
