SERIES II/SERIES IIA
88” AND 109” 1958 – 1971
IN 1958 the Series I was replaced by the more rounded Series II – the classic Land Rover shape that endured right through to the Defender. Values of Series IIS are rising sharply – pre-1961 and Mot-exempt models especially. Some have been retro-fitted with Tdi engines, which help them keep up with modern traffic. An 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. BUYER'S TIP: Still an affordable classic (just).
