1969 Land Rover Series IIa Marine Blue


This project began with an all original 1969 series IIa found on Long Island. This Land Rover was a great candidate for restoration because the the front fenders, bulkhead and rear tub were all in above average condition. The vehicle has undergone a full restoration with many upgrades and improvements above and beyond our standard restorations.
