For sale through AB 4x4s Cleveland is a rare chance to own a 1960 Land Rover Series 2, soft top recently rebuilt on a galvanised chassis.
Due in early next week we are not expecting this one to hang about.
Below is a short description of this superb example-
Chassis – This was a brand new Richards chassis renowned as the best in its class. It was painted black to achieve an original appearance. We have a memory stick with many photos from start to finish.
Bulkhead – This received new footwells, pillars and legs. This is now totally sound and good for the next 40 years. Bodywork – This was resprayed in Bronze green, one of my favourite colours. Looks extremely presentable with the nice aged cappings maintaining its original appearance.
On the outside – Recent sand hood in superb condition. Original Series 2 door hinges, a must have in my opinion. Correct Series 2 vent flaps that are screwed on instead of welded. Lovely Series 2 round mirrors mounted to each wing, correct wings of course and period series 2 front radiator panel with the lights in the centre. This is the vintage look that has become only too popular.
What is also worth mentioning is the presence of the original Series 2 lights throughout instead of the plastic copies. I really like all of these original features!
To the front there is the original style front valance, another important feature to have on a 1960 model.
Underneath – Axels undersealed and chassis painted black, it looks fabulous. Brand new shock absorbers all round. New exhaust present as well as many other new additions when rebuilt last year.
Inside – Where do I start? Packed full of correct original features to include Series 2 round vent knobs, correct Lucas wiper motors, correct wire steering wheel, correct horn and indicator turn switch. Also present is the Smiths heater, a nice feature to have. 3 nice seats to the front and no rear seats. We can add 2 bench seats and belts if desired making this a 7 seater.
Engine bay – Engine and gearbox operate without fault. Has had new electrics, important on a vintage vehicle of this age. Still runs on the dynamo again a must have. Many ancillaries have been renewed at rebuild increasing its future reliability . Still present is the original series 2 copper radiator which just adds to the engines well kept yet vintage appearance.

CONCLUSION – We are so delighted to be offering this super rare tax and mot exempt Land Rover having had a superb sympathetic rebuild which in my opinion makes these so much more valuable and collectable. It will increase in value, prove cost effective and also perform in the snow. Also great in summer with the top down.
