Land Rover IIa 88" Station Wagon

Back before they put the Sport in SUV, there was the Land Rover. Basil - that’s him in the picture - is a 1967 that started life as a diamond exploration truck in northern Ontario. I pulled him out of a barn where he’d hibernated for a decade or so, and gave him a new frame and wiring harness. Now he explores Colorado and Utah. Not quickly, but with great determination and pluck.

Nice Series. Love her "patina" ;)

Looks good! Aren't you afraid of the body rusting with no paint? ;) That is how mine looked before I got ship fitters disease and ended up changing just about everything.

The body's aluminum, so rust isn't a problem of course. The paint's been that way for a long time... All of the steel parts of the body are painted with POR-15 underneath the primer or (in the case of the interior) shiny top coat.
