The Series II

The Series II were short-lived models but they set the style for Landrover for nearly 3 decades. Introduced in 1958 they were designed by David Bache, Rover's car stylist. The available wheelbases were 88 and 109", the engines were the 2052cc diesel or the 2286cc petrol, the early 88" came with the 1997 petrol.

The vehicle above belongs to the legendary American explorer Herbert Zipkin. He bought the car almost straight off the line and immediately started on a journey through Africa. The car and the driver are still on- or better off-the road.

Below: This Series IIA once belonged to clubmember Daniel Durlet who modified it to some extent.
