1967 Land Rover Series IIa Six-Cylinder
AMENDMENT: A very rare and intersting variant;
factory six-cylinder; Ozzy trayback body with tilt; lovely condition; rock
The factory six-cylinder Land Rover was not a particuarly
popular choice as they were expensive to buy and pretty thirsty when driven with
any determination. They were however silky-smooth and turned the normal
four-cylinder variant into the workhorse it always promised to be.
Australia, fuel prices were low and so consumption really didn't
affect sales. The competitors from Toyota had big sixes and sold well
This fine 109" six-cylinder Series IIa dates from 1967 and was sent
out as a CKD kit for local assembly. The first owner chose a chassis cab only,
prefering to add his own aluminium Trayback in true Ozzy tradition. This one
even comes with a full tilt.
The truck has remained in lovely original
order, although plenty of work has been done to protect the chassis from the
less amenable UK climate. It presents extremely well and is in fine order.
Sadly, we don't know much more of its time in Australia.
advised that the car comes with a NOVA number, for which the importer used the
incorrect vin so this paperwork exercise needs to be sorted before the DVLA will
issue a new registration number.
Rare and interesting, this lovely Series
IIa is a must for any serious Land Rover collector.
AMENDMENT: We are
advised that there are documents included which show the correct VIN which have
been verified by the Land Rover Series 2 Club Vehicle Registrations Officer
and should be attached to the DVLA registration application which should do the
trick to get it UK registered.For more information - contact Matthew
