Fed up looking at series 2 Land Rovers that turn out to be series 3s? - here's a genuine late 2a (1969 to 1972), wire mesh grille with wing mounted headlights, ignition/starter switch key in the dash and bulkhead mounted single wiper motor.
This has been in my family. At it's last MOT in 2017 there were no advisories. Chassis; - has been repaired, it's sound, i've sprayed loads of waxoyl into it and it could last another 50 years.Bulkhead; - has been repaired well, it too is sound, had a new drivers' side footwell about 2 years ago. New front swivels fitted last winter, no leaks. Had new brakes front and rear about 3 years ago - pipes, drums, shoes, master and wheel cylinders etc, all work well, pulls up square. Engine; - original 2 1/4 petrol with new distributor and. Fitted last winter - starts and runs really well, very quiet at tickover, pulls well, has it's original spec dynamo and cut out box which work fine, no leaks, there's no battery drain, i've left it for over a month and the battery is still good.
Petrol tank is only 4 months old. Gearbox; - is quiet, gets all the gears up or down just like new, - series 2 so synchro only on 3rd. And 4th, low ratio gears all work fine. Exhaust; - replaced last winter.Steering box is a replacement series 3 type with modified steering column to accept the steering wheel centre horn push, no play, wobbles or tight spots. Tyres; - 205 x 16 radials have good tread, no shimmies or wobbles, spare has good tread. Bodywork; - is straight, had a new under passenger seat storage box, boot floor and stiffeners fitted last Autumn, doors fit well with a reassuring clunk, rear bench seats in the rear. The radiator panel is a bit flaky but a new bottom section is included which needs welding in, canvas hood has been patched in a couple of places, it doesn't leak and has not bothered me. Towbar fitted with working trailer electrics. All in all a useful, sound, 99% original series 2a that drives really well.
