Land Rover Series 2a IIa 1962 Orig Reg 375 BRP Full Canvas Bronze Green New MOT
Here we have for sale a very early Series 2a.
Chassis number 24100765a was built in October 1961 but strangely not registered until 1st June 1962 so I am guessing it was a demonstrator for a garage?
375 BRP is a Northamptonshire registration number and is valuable and transferable but it would be a shame to part them after all these years.
V5 document present and correct.
It has MOT certificates dating back to 1984 when the mileage was 45,307 and the mileage on the new MOT certificate is 66,747 so not many miles in the last 30 years.
The Land Rover has been checked over prior to the MOT as it has not been on the road since 2003.
The chassis is very good and will not need any work.
The bulkhead is also good and solid with excellent footwells.
The gearbox was removed to renew the spigot bearing as it was very noisy, all working fine now with a good clutch.
Brakes are good all round.
Correct Lucas wiper motors.
Free wheeling hubs.
Paintwork is scruffy in places but I quite like the look! It comes with a tin of Deep Bronze green enamel if you wish to smarten it up.
A new Autosparks wiring loom was fitted in 2007 with an alternator conversion.
The canvas is a few years old but in good order.
Bench seats in the back so fun for all the family!
It has had approx £1800 spent on it in the last year.
These early Series 2a's are really going up in value due to Series 1's going up so strongly so grab one while you can.
This Land Rover is ready to use again as is or improve it over time while enjoying it.
