This 1967 Land Rover 109 Series IIa is a left-hand drive wagon that was reportedly discovered in 1997 at a warehouse in New Mexico, subsequently refurbished in California, sold to its previous owner in 2000, and acquired by the seller seven months ago. The body and roof are finished in black, and power comes from a 2.25-liter gasoline inline-four mated to a 4-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case. A recent service performed by seller included installation of a new front axle and Old Man Emu shocks, a valve adjustment, an oil change, and more. This Series IIa is offered with recent receipts and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The seller reports that a late 1990s refurbishment included a repaint in black and reassembly using stainless steel hardware. The truck features a hood-mounted spare tire and a Maltese Cross front grille. Corrosion is noted near the passenger-side mirror, and bubbles appear near the upper portion of the driver’s door frame.
Body-colored steel wheels wear recently-installed STA Super Traxion tires sized 750-16, including the rear-mounted spare. An older tire is worn by the hood-mounted second spare wheel. A set of Old Man Emu shocks and a new front axle have been fitted by the seller, with the latter featuring manually-locking AVM hubs.
The interior features Defender-style black vinyl front seats, a middle-row bench, and troop-style jump seats in the rear cargo area. A lockable center console with cupholders has been added, and the seller states that he has rewired nonoperational items and reupholstered various trim pieces. Corrosion is noted on the driver’s side lower windshield frame and the passenger-side interior storage tray.
The black exterior paint extends to the dashboard, which houses a Jaeger gauges for speed, amperage, fuel, oil pressure, and water temperature. The seller reports the speedometer gear is worn, though the 5-digit odometer is reportedly functional and shows 19k miles. Total mileage is unknown. The windshield wiper motors are not wired according to the seller.
The 2.25-liter gasoline inline-four was reportedly rebuilt in the 199os, though supporting records are unavailable. Power is sent to all four wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case. Service performed by the seller included fitment of new spark plugs and wires, a radiator flush, valve and timing adjustments, an oil change, and a fluid check.
The differentials, stabilizers, and brakes have been powder coated according to the seller, who also seller notes that the frame was dipped and galvanized during the 1990s refurbishment. A driving video is provided below.
