Many Land Rover historians consider the Series IIA to be the best of the Series models, it exists in a Goldilocks zone between refinement and simplicity – before the crack-prone plastic dashboards of the Series III but after someengine and transmissionimprovements over the Series II.
Land Roverused the Series IIA as a transitional model between the Series II and the Series III, the lights were moved from the grill to the front wings in 1969, a new diesel engine was offered (closely based on the 2.25 litre petrol engine), and in 1967 a 2.6 litre inline 6 cylinder petrol engine was introduced (for the LWB models).
The production of the Series IIA ran from 1961 till 1971, a 10 year stretch that many remember as being the golden age of the British 4×4. It was a time before the Japanese had entered the market in any signifiant way and the American 4×4 manufacturers were more focussed on their domestic market – so Land Rover established themselves as the world’s pre-eminent off-road vehicle manufacturer.
