The Land Rover Series IIA continued with the 72-hp 2.25-liter OHV inline four-cylinder engine introduced with the 1958 Series II. The engine, four-speed manual transmission, and two-speed transfer case were believed original and have been fully rebuilt. The engine rebuild is said to have included a new crankshaft, and that all components were restored or replaced to the specs in the factory service manual. The seller states that the cold-start video was truly cold, made at five o’clock in the morning at 28-degrees Fahrenheit. He reports no smoke, leaks, or weeps. A video shows the transmission and transfer case operating properly, without noise or interference. the restoration process took the Land Rover down to its bare frame, which he says was media blasted and fully repainted. He says, “There is not a spec of rust” and the floors are new. The Land Rover body is aluminum and resistant to rot. The seller says this vehicle’s body was properly prepped and repaired where needed before being painted a shade of greenish-gray evoking the original Land Rovers. The seller describes the finish as “perfect,” with no blemishes of any kind. Further, he emphasizes that all surfaces, seen and unseen, have been repainted. The soft-top was built with an all-new frame following the manufacturer’s specifications and fitted with a new lightweight soft-top. All glass and seals are described as new, and all lighting is said to have been refurbished and working “perfectly.” Interiors do not come more simple than in a classic Land Rover. The seller says the seats in this Landy are new, including the frames, cushions, and vinyl upholstery, which is said to have correct sun- and water-resistant material, also following the manufacturer’s original specifications. Correct rubber floormats in the front and rear. Door latches and locks were replaced with the correct parts. The entire electrical system is brand new, and the lights and indicators work perfectly. The gauges, which have correct Spanish-language indicators, are affirmed to have been restored and to operate properly. during the restoration the vehicle received, it was disassembled and the frame was sandblasted and painted in black anti-rust paint. The steering is also said to have “new parts and brackets” and to “steer straight.” The brake system is described as “totally restored” with all new components, including hydraulic reservoirs and lines, with all operating properly.
