Land Rover Series 2 88'' 1960 Station Wagon Galvanised Chassis


Land Rover Series 2 88" 1960 Station Wagon Galvanised Chassis

We are delighted to offer this lovely example of a Series 2. The vehicle has been subject to a full restoration which has included a new galvanised chassis. The vehicle also has a number of upgrades that make it a lot more drivable.


The vehicle has been rebuilt to original specification and a vast majority of original parts were reused and new old stock parts where sourced where required. The vehicle was then first registered for road use 29th March 1960. The vehicle is in by far the most classic colour combination bronze green with contrasting limestone wheels.

The bulkhead was refurbished with new pressed footwells and pillars. New galvanised Richards chassis. Gearbox fully refurbished. Engine fully rebuilt including some power upgrades to make the vehicle more drivable, it also benefits from an electric fan. The vehicle is fitted with both free wheeling hubs and a fairey overdrive which makes the vehicle much more drivable on dual carriage ways. This vehicle really is a pleasure to drive and we recommend any test drive for you to see the improvements.

New autosparks wiring loom, New swivels, suspension, steering rods, track rod ends, steering box rebuilt and a new steering relay. Brakes completely overhauled, axles fully rebuilt. New radiator has been fitted. New lights fitted all round. New black vinyl front seats and rear bench seats. There is so much more to list.

The vehicle is in immaculate condition and drives very well. The vehicle has always been dry stored and has travelled very few dry miles since the restoration was completed.

The bodywork on this example is very tidy there are the odd age related marks but nothing that we feel requires attention.

All windows open, all the window channels are good since the vehicle has had a full restoration and everything is new. The vehicle is fitted with the original smiths heater which is a nice addition for the winter months.

The load area is exceptionally clean and doesn't show any sights of heavy use and is presented with a rubber mat and two matching bench seats.

The vehicle has one of the best engine bays we have seen on a Series 2, extremely clean. The head has been refurbished and now benefits from harden valves and so you no longer need to worry about putting in lead additive. The block has also been refurbished.

The engine busts into life at the turn of the key. It is apparent that this is a vehicle that has been maintained and covered low mileage it runs as quiet and smooth as any Series Land Rover that we have ever had.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will have a full 12-month MOT from the day of sale. Four wheel drive and low range engage, as they should. The gears change up and down as they should it has a very quiet gearbox which is a good sign of it's light use over the years. This vehicle will be supplied fully serviced including engine, filter, main gearbox, transfer box, overdrive, diffs and swivels.

The steering is as it should be and the vehicle doesn't wonder on the road like some series vehicles do.

The vehicle is as clean underneath as on top any inspection is welcome.


On offer is an unmolested and well-restored Series 2 Station Wagon in a lovely restored condition. All the numbers match - the chassis numbers on the plates are the same as on the log book registration document.

This Land Rover has obviously been cared for and cherished by its previous owners and thousands of pounds were spent on it during it's restoration. It is very solid example and is ready to use and enjoy.

This is a fantastic example of a 61-year-old Series Land Rover. You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle.

Anything on this Land Rover that required attention has been done it is now faultless.
