Land rover Series 2a test mule prototype development test vehicle, rare features
This Series 2a land Rover was built as a Station Wagon in Feb 1964 and went into the engineering department as a test mule. Over the next few years it helped develop and test many items many of which are still fitted. Rack wipers, heated windscreens, tall hand brake, black trim, Bakelite steering wheel, key starting, plastic dashboard and some mechanical elements most of which appeared in production two or three years after it was made. It was also used as a development vehicle for the Canadian market and has a fully lined non tropical roof, different lights, door mounted mirrors, twin fuel tanks, marked red and yellow lever instructions and possibly trialed a different heater though it is now standard. These are things I know about but there will be loads more for the new owner to discover. It has its 2286 petrol engine and ran well when last used some years ago. The chassis needs work at the front and back but I consider it is saveable. The bulkhead is reasonable but needing footwells.
I did my part in saving it now it is up to the next owner to get it back on the road again. The chassis number is 241136##B and the engine is 25175008F on the paperwork though i have not checked the block stamping. Viewing is welcome just send your contact details and i will be in touch.
