1965 Land Rover Series-IIA 109. Solihull-built and sold new in Lisbon, Portugal. Lived in Portugal until 2016. Left hand drive, 2.25L Petrol engine. Restored in the mid 1990's. Truck presents beautifully and is ready to be driven.
Driveline. The 2.25 L four-cylinder gas motor starts easily and pulls the truck beautifully. The original Solex carb was replaced with a Zenith unit in 2016. The truck can do about 55mph on a flat stretch of highway. Engine is mated to the original four-speed transmission, which shifts without issue. Truck has high and low range transfer case, as well as both 2WD and 4WD. Has Fairey locking hubs installed on the front. All five Carmac 700-16 tires were installed in 2016. The transmission and differential fluids were replaced at the same time, as well as new brakes in all four corners. Exterior. The Grasmere Green paint presents beautifully under an Alaskan White roof. Body panels are about as straight as they get for an old Land Rover, and the truck is free of dents and scratches. The galvanized trim is exposed, and common rust areas such as the bulkhead, floors, crossmembers, and doors are all dry and straight.
Interior. The interior is finished in a black vinyl. The truck is currently configured to seat ten, including the rear-opposed facing jump seats. Gauges and lights are functional. Floors are clean and rust-free; the interior was painted along with the exterior and presents nicely. Doors shut firm and latches engage as they should. Truck has a safari roof which helps channel air into the cabin with the ceiling-mounted vents. And that windshield – it’s the world’s best picture frame. Put yourself behind the seat and stand in awe as the world unfolds and comes alive through that front glass. You pick the spot. The Rover will do the rest.
