Se­ries I or Se­ries II/IIA

Even the youngest Se­ries Land Rover is more than 34 years years old now, so it should come as no sur­prise that cor­ro­sion can be se­ri­ously prob­lem­atic. The chas­sis and bulk­head are the bits to look at, es­pe­cially the hid­den area atop the rails over the rear axle. How­ever, th­ese are fantastic ‘slow road’ ve­hi­cles and ev­ery­one ought to own at least one in their life­time.

Light­weight

Many Lightweights have led pam­pered lives com­pared to their Se­ries sib­lings, but this can of­ten put them out of reach of many pock­ets. Even though cor­ro­sion, ne­glect and bodges may all be present, it makes a fantastic al­ter­na­tive to a strato­spher­i­cally priced Se­ries I and is ev­ery bit as re­ward­ing to own. Look for the best, of­ten to be found in the hands of mil­i­tary ve­hi­cle en­thu­si­asts.
