The Land Rover Series I, II and III are off-road vehicles produced by the British manufacturer The Rover’s Company. The car was conceived in 1947 during the aftermath of World War II. Before the war, Rover used to create luxury cars. But as rough times had occurred in the immediate post war, Rover’s had to adapt their vehicles to the demand. The raw materials were strictly rationed to rebuild the country.
The idea of a light car for agricultural purposes came from Maurice Wilks, Rover’s chief designer. Inspired by the US jeep used during the war, Wilks could see how he would fill in the gap existing between a light truck and a tractor.
Wilks designed a simple tough car, practical for agricultural work featuring an aluminum alloy bodywork (instead of metal), corrosion resistant and four wheel drive. The car had huge success.
The II A model is considered by many as the most robust car and as their favorite of the series. The car appeared in the 60’s in many movies and documentaries taking place in Africa and Australia. The production reached a peak in 1969 – 1970 with over 60 000 cars sold. In 20 years, Rover sold 600 000 cars, and had dominated the 4×4 business in Australia, Africa and Middle-East which explains that 70% of the production had been exported.
This Series II A is on a 88’’ wheelbase and has the 2,286cc, 62bhp diesel in option. The previous owner was the former Land Rover importer for Belgium. He bought the vehicle in Berlin in 2003 from Mr Eberhard Thiesen, famous German classic cars dealer. Completely restored and rust free, the car is in a white and pale blue / green color and in a perfect condition for use.
