88" And 109" 1958 – 1971

IN 1958 the Se­ries I was re­placed by the more rounded Se­ries II – the classic Land Rover shape that you still see to­day in the Defender.

A SII should be a good ride. If it isn't, check the leaf springs aren't badly rusted and seized – and con­sider re­plac­ing with parabol­ics.
