Time for a Landie – while stocks last?

Classic Cars (UK) - - Chasing Cars -

With much of my mo­tor­ing plea­sure de­rived from study­ing finely drawn curves, or driv­ing on sim­i­lar, I won’t pre­tend to un­der­stand the ap­peal of square-cut Land Rovers be­yond be­ing a mo­tor­ing/farm­ing icon. But plenty of folk do. And since the num­ber of Se­ries I Landies rounded up for projects has made them scarce and ex­pen­sive, at­ten­tion has started shift­ing to their more rea­son­ably priced suc­ces­sors.

It’s the Se­ries II and IIA that’s get­ting at­ten­tion now, and you can see why pro­ject wor­thy ones are be­ing snapped up quickly when fin­ished ex­am­ples are now chang­ing hands for as much as £27,500... and that’s a fig­ure that is con­tin­u­ing to rise. If one of these im­mensely prac­ti­cal bone­shak­ers is on your bucket list, don’t leave it too long to buy one. There’s also the chance that if you get one now, be­fore prices head up­wards too much, it may pay you back in the fu­ture.
