Land Rover Series 2a 1970 Tax Exempt
She is my trusty Land Rover Truck Cab, first registered on 19/6/70. She has owned me since May 2011 and prior to me, she has been pre-loved by 6 others. I bought her as a stand-by, in case of winter snow or ice, or if my car was off road being MOTd etc. Now I have bought another vehicle which came at a bargain price, and cannot justify keeping three motors. Hence, Betty is very reluctantly up for the chop. During her time with me, I have used her as an exhibit at country shows, and she has been on several vintage road rallies in support of the Air Ambulance Charity. She always gets attention and evokes reminiscing conversations from older admirers. Its actually a pleasure to send off the DVLA form every year! In other words, shes as cheap as chips to keep. She has never let me down, and in the last 5 years all shes had is a new radiator, and fuel tank. Now that this classic shape has been discontinued by Land Rover, this type of 4 x 4 is only going to get more and more collectable. These trucks are rugged little characters and dont mind a bit of rough and tumble. As the engine is naturally aspirated, i.

No turbo dont expect any breath-taking performance, but she is a slogger. When cold, she wouldnt pull you out of bed till shes warmed up, and like all old Landies, she likes a smoke when you wake her up. In bottom gear 4 wheel drive though, shell crawl up your house wall.

She drips a few spots of oil (show me one that doesnt) but otherwise shes not a bad old stick. Bodywork wise, shes had a couple of dings in the sill area, but nothing worth worrying about. All parts are readily obtainable. One of her previous owners thought it was a good idea to brush paint her in green.

Not my choice, but its never really bothered me. Properly looked after, theres no reason why this little old lady shouldnt go on for another 50 years.

The bulkhead is ok and the chassis is sprayed with waxoyl every MOT which by the way, expires on 25th March 2016. The only thing that may need looking at to pass her next MOT is the handbrake which may require attention. The previous MOT certificates have all carried no advisories. If youre a real Landy enthusiast and looking for a project, this is right up your street!

Especially if you have a spare turbo engine to drop in, youll be quids in. If you are keen to keep her as original as possible, then she would benefit, at some time in the future, from a good engine overhaul.

Thats not to say she wont carry on slogging as she is though. Theres 1164 miles on her odometer but after 46 years who knows?

Shes only done 400 miles since her last MOT which is an indication of how little shes used. Shes always been stored in the shed. Tyres are all good and hardly worn at all.

She does around 28/30 to the gallon driving her steady, and shes never been thrashed. Youll go home with that Landy smile. Because I wont even answer them. So there it is, if youre looking for an iconic little piece of British history, here it is.
