FS: Early 1961-62 88" IIa

1961 Land Rover Series IIa. (Serial Number 24100020a ) Right hand drive pickup cab. I purchased this rover in the fall of 2006. From 2006 until 2008 I had the rover apart except for the tub. The engine and transmission were removed. Clutch, rear seal, wiring harness, etc. etc. replaced as needed. Repainted with Ful-cryl II acrylic enamel color code “rover 2651”. I wish I had a better place to paint and equipment so that the paint looked better. The breakfast, wing tops and bulkhead look good but the paint on the body sides is not so good. She starts every time unless sitting for long periods and then she needs a few taps of the gas pedal and a little choke. When I got her the brakes had already been converted to dual circuit power brakes using a Series III tower.

I know that the Series IIa is usually 1962 or later but I bought her from South Carolina and the prevous owner used the year 1961. Based on the early serial number the vehicle was built in October 1961 (according to the CALvin calculator). Georgia does not issue titles for cars older than 1963. She is registered here in GA. I do still have the SC title if that is of any value.

Rover located in Savannah, GA
Odometer says 92k.
$9800.
Please take a look and ask questions. She isn't perfect but has only let me down once during the 2013 Christmas parade and that was apparently due to vapor lock.

I have the large galvanized piece to mount the spare on the hood. However, I usually carry the spare mounted in the tub. I'll get a picture of that later.

I could not see how to edit my original post.

Contact me at jaypee@thecasteels.com.
The rear crossmember needs to be addressed but the rover is perfectly drivable as she is. I left that undone because I was hoping to replace with a galvanized frame someday.

I'm surprised that I haven't had any interest though I know it has been only a week. I felt the price left room for negotiation. I'm willing to listen to thoughts concerning the pricing or if I'm missing something.

Thanks, John
