SE­RIES II/SE­RIES IIA

Land Rover Monthly - - Price Check -

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. 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. BUYER'S TIP: Af­ford­able classic that holds its value. SPECIFICATIONS 1958: 88s, diesels to 1961 and all trans­mis­sions same as Se­ries I. 1958-1971: 2.25-litre four-cylin­der petrol, 77 bhp, 124 lb-ft torque; 2.25-litre four-cylin­der diesel, 62 bhp, 103 lb-ft torque. 1967-1971 (109 only): 2.6-litre six-cylin­der petrol, 81 bhp, 132 lb-ft torque. PRICE GUIDE Poor: £900 – £2200 Av­er­age: £2200 – £3900 Good: £3900 – £6000 Ex­cel­lent: £6000 – £17,000
