648 HFU – 1959 Land Rover Series II – “Better than new ?”
Manufactured 28th December 1959, and dispatched to DH & AH Bloomer Limited, Grimsby, on 1st January 1960 – This Series II Land Rover has spent all its life in Lincolnshire.
This Land Rover was the subject of a nut and bolt, ground up rebuild in 2014 – and has covered a mere 2000 miles since. This has been mainly to Land Rover shows around the country where it has collected a number of trophys:
- “Vehicle you want to take home” Leafers at the pit
- “Best Classic Land Rover” Eastnor Land Rover Show
- “Best Classic Restored” Billing Land Rover Fest
Also front cover and 5 page feature of Classic Land Rover magazine (issue No 17).
As well as a modern V5 registration document – there is also the original “Buff” log book (Showing first owner as John H Heath Ltd – Horncastle), plus a laminated British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate.
Finished in traditional Deep Bronze Green, with sand canvas tilt, and elephant hide seats – this Land Rover has been restored to the highest standard, with meticulous attention to detail, that would satisfy even the most critical eye.
Simply put – you will not find better
