1958-1971 Land Rover SII/SIIA specifications Classic and Performance Car

With a new look and different engine, the Series II Land Rover continued to offer farmers the perfect country workhorse


A decade after its launch and still hugely popular, the Series II Land Rover appeared. Easily identifiable by its revised styling and powered by a new 2.25-litre petrol engine, this design stayed in production – basically unchanged – until 1990. The Series IIA that followed 18 months later was further improved to include a 2.6-litre petrol engine in the LWB version, and a new 2.25-litre diesel, significantly expanding the car’s appeal in export markets. Considered the ultimate DIY car, Land Rovers are revered for the ease with which you can work on them.
