This 1960 Land Rover Series IIA represents one of the most
affordable ways to get a true classic go-anywhere 4x4.
This one is the icon that has kept Land Rover a symbol of robust
off-road vehicles. The Series IIA was the longest-running Series
model of its time, and that's because it took the lessons learned
from its excellent two predecessors and created a vehicle that felt
darn near indestructible. This one really gives off that impression
with a strong body that hasn't lived an easy life, and yet it has a
fortitude that hasn't misshaped its silhouette in over half a
century. The green paint has that aged-in look where people would
suspect it could have been applied at the factory, and so it only
adds to this one's robust story. So while the value price on this
one certainly leaves room in your budget to create a shining
classic if you so desire, we already like what this one offers. It
showcases the right attitude that has established Land Rover as a
faithful and stout friend.
The interior is pure classic Land Rover with jump seats in the rear
and a right-hand drive steering wheel showing off its British
heritage. There have been the right updates to keep this a good
driver. There are practical features, like the newer windshield
glass and the re-covered seats. There's even pieces that almost
feel luxurious, like a lockbox center console with cup holders and
an AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth. These are built to be rugged blank
slates, and so we know your imagination is running wild with all
the ways you can configure this one. After all, it's the longer
wheelbase version, which means more space for everything from cargo
room to a fully outfitted camper.
The 2.25-liter motor is part of the robust tradition of durable
Land Rover power. So it's great to have this one looking so stock.
And the clean undercarriage photos also prove that this one has
been treated with respect. The four-speed manual gearbox gives you
complete control over the motor. Plus, the two-speed transfer case
and deep-grooved vintage-style tires allow this impressive classic
to still live up to its go-anywhere reputation.
This has the fundamentals and style you love at a price that makes
it irresistible. So don't miss this classic Land Rover, call
