1962 Land Rover Series IIA Station WagonOverall in good condition, can be a daily driver. Body is in good condition, only minor dings and scratches. All accessories work (i.e. lights, blinkers, horn). 4 new tires, and two spare tires, one mounted at rear, the second on the hood. Engine runs well -- starts right up -- and transmission is fine. 4WD (high and low) work fine as does overdrive for highway use. Speedometer and fuel gauge are a bit inaccurate and should be repaired. Bought vehicle in 2010 and had extensive mechanical work performed to make it a "reliable" driver. Interior is in good condition, upholstery is fine. INstalled seat belts (lap belts) and modified front seat to accommodate taller drivers. Happy to provide details of work performed when I bought it (work performed by D.A.P. Enterprises in Vermont -- old Rover experts).
