Nothing lasts forever, but some very good things come very close.
Although production ceased in January of this year, Land Rover's Defender production spanned a whopping 67 years bucking fashion trends whilst somehow epitomising them and is fast becoming one of the most collectable classics of the modern era.
Influenced by Jeeps of WWII, the first Land Rover arrived in 1948. Customers quickly discovered that this car could take on just about any landscape, making demand for them high and desirable to owners like the Queen, Ralph Lauren and the late Robin Williams.
After the huge success of the first model, Land Rover created the Series II and updated IIA, with both carrying a reputation as the hardiest models ever constructed.
The Land Rover Series IIA carried some significant differences to its predecessor, the headlights were now mounted in the fenders, an uprated 2.6 litre 6 cylinder petrol engine became an option and key start was now standard.
Exclusively available here is a Complete Knock Down (CKD) Series IIA Utility with hard-top in recently restored, turn-key condition.
Although the Series IIA may not be the fastest car on earth, it sure did have a lot of grunt and this specific model offers ample space for grand tours through the country and usable every-day driving performance.
With all new seating, carpets, head liner and refurbished dials this spartan classic looks stunning finished in clear coated, exposed aluminium bodywork. There isn't another like it.
Now celebrated as an automotive icon, interest in classic Land Rovers is growing toward an all-time high and early examples, like this hard to find and excellently prepared Series IIA are fetching record prices around the world.
Now is the time to experience why these early series Land Rovers are so popular and with production now officially ceased, there will never be another like it.
