Instantly recognisable as one of the most iconic vehicles of all time, the Landrover Series 2 SWB is possibly the most favoured of the bunch with its grill mounted headlights and the preferred barrel side panels compared to the earlier more utilitarian Series 1 models.
Offered for immediate delivery is this gorgeous 1968 Series 2a SWB finished in the original Mid Grey with ivory Safari Top.
Showing just a recorded 42,000 miles, which we believe correct, this rare vehicle has had just 4 previous keepers from new. Details of all of these keepers are on file including the original registration document of 1968 showing the first dealer keeper, Charles Hull Ltd of Solihull.
Fitted with 7 seats and the rare Safari Top, this vehicle has had a full restoration and conservation programme starting back in 2011 and completed in 2014 by renowned Landrover specialists, famous Four of Lincolnshire.
As you view the numerous high resolution photographs and the video we have taken, you will see the care and quality of the workmanship and the attention to detail is second to none. The chassis was replaced with a galvanized one and then painted black to retain originality, the bulkhead has been replaced and every other component either replaced or restored to the highest standard. The Safari top and headlining materials are the original items in a remarkable condition and preserved accordingly.
Items improved from the original to enable the vehicle to be used safely and enjoyably in modern day traffic include the addition of inertia seat belts, parabolic leaf springs and gas dampers, an alternator and high torque starter motor, none of these items cosmetically detract from the original.
This vehicle is of the highest quality - it is both beautiful and very usable, if you are thinking about restoring one of these appreciating classics I would suggest you consider this one as the restoration cost alone would be in excess of our asking price.
On file are numerous invoices and a photographic journey of the restoration.
