This superbly presented Land Rover Series IIA Station Wagon was manufactured in 1966 and was registered new with the Royal Air Force. JAL 356K spent its early life in service, used as a work horse on a UK air base for five years. In 1971 the Land Rover was released by the Royal Air Force and the vehicle was then road registered and allocated with a 1971 registration mark. Over the next forty years the Land Rover had just three owners and having being in fairly regular use, in largely original condition, the vehicle was in need of restoration work.
Several years ago the major programme of restoration began with the vehicle being totally stripped down and put in position for a full chassis up restoration. The chassis was stripped, repaired and painted, the body restored as necessary and the Land Rover was professionally re-painted. With the running gear removed from the vehicle, the engine was stripped down and fully rebuilt and all other mechanical components were overhauled as necessary. The Land Rover was treated to a brand new interior including roof lining and the rebuild finished off with a keen eye for detail with areas such as the engine bay and boot really sharply presented
