And is seeking a new home for full restoration and continued care. The Series II Land Rover was introduced in April 1958, exactly 10 years after the original was shown in Amsterdam. Both Regular and Long models had the same wheelbases as the Series Is they replaced, but there were many important differences. Most obvious was the styling (by Rovers David Bache), which was impressive enough to survive with only minor changes into the 21st century.It provided barrel-sides to cover axles with wider tracks, plus a sill panel to conceal the underpinnings, and a particularly neat truck cab option. The Series II 109-inch utility models were introduced at the same time as the 88-inch models. All petrol-engined models had the new 2.25-litre engine.
Body type availability was the same as for the 88-inch models, but there were more special conversions on the more versatile long wheelbase chassis. Paint colours were also the same. There were 42,032 Series II 109-inch utilities, of which 8,299 had diesel engines. Mechanical changes focused on a new and much more powerful petrol engine, this time an OHV four-cylinder of 2286cc.
However, the 88-inch models retained the old 2-litre engine until summer 1958. The existing 2052cc diesel, a close cousin of the new petrol engine, remained available. The usual range of body styles was on offer soft top, truck cab, and Station Wagon. Overseas buyers could also have a Window Hardtop model.
Bronze Green was still the most popular colour, but there were six others: Beige, Dark Grey, Light Green, Light Grey, Marine Blue and Poppy Red, the latter for fire engines. There were 60,456 88-inch Series II models, of which just 9,539 were diesel-powered. The last five 1500-series chassis (from 1960) appear to have had Perkins diesel engines from new.
