The successor to the successful Land Rover Series I was the Series II, which saw a production run from 1958 to 1961. It came in 88 inch and 109 inch wheelbases (normally referred to as the 'SWB' and 'LWB'). This was the first Land Rover to receive the attention of Rover's styling department — Chief Stylist David Bache produced the familiar 'barrel side' waistline to cover the vehicle's wider track and the improved design of the truck cab variant, introducing the curved side windows and rounded roof still used on current Land Rovers. The Series II was the first vehicle to use the well-known 2.25-litre petrol engine. This larger engine produced 72 hp and became the standard Land Rover unit until the mid-1980s when diesel engines became more popular.
The 1961 Land Rover Series II SWB offered here is the recipient of a recent, frame-off restoration.
