We are delighted to present for sale this high specification 2a soft top, having being rebuilt onto a galvanised chassis in circa 2015 - for which there is supporting paperwork.
We have previously sold this vehicle in 2017, to a gentleman who drove it to Sardinia, and back! During his ownership, it has proved to be utterly reliable - and he is only selling now due to moving house. The original advert for this vehicle is below...read on!
As can be seen from the photos, the vehicle sits well on a recent set of Cooper Discover tyres which help with gearing as well as being useful for snow and mud. This 2a "cross-over" model still enjoys its maltese grill and razor bonnet with lights in wings (correct set up for this model) along with lots of other nice, period features. The canvas is an Exmoor Trim type and was new in 2016. Defender mirrors give modern visibility, and there's a handy towbar and rear mud flaps too. The paintwork on this vehicle is better than we normally see, and is evidently a 'gloss spray' finish - this really suits the vehicle and we suspect that the new owner will appreciate it as we do. When these photos were taken, it was a very bright day - we opted to photo in the shade, so you can better see the finish - ignore any reflections you see - they are not dents!
The interior is the standard "hard dash" and houses three front seats and a pair of rear benches. Deluxe matting is also fitted. There is a heater with front demist fitted, which is handy for those cold winter mornings!
Out on road, this old girl runs really well, giving a pleasant driving experience. The addition of the overdrive helps with cruising and the uprated springs afford a more compliant ride quality. This vehicle also benefits from the fitment of a galvanised front radiator panel to do away with corrosion problems at that point.
In summary this is a very high specification soft top, petrol 2a, benefitting from a raft of desirable improvements to make future life with its new owner a pleasant experience.
