We love a good classic Land Rover because it looks like it's ready for an adventure no matter if it's climbed to the top of a mountain of just parked in the driveway. That's what makes this 1972 Land Rover Series IIA so appealing. It stands out for the way it retains the look of a true explorer, right down to the details.
Owning a classic 4x4 like this means getting the look just right. That starts with elements like the safari rack on the roof, tow hitch, mud guards, and an extra set of lights to lead the way in the pitch black of night. Plus, the paint theme on this one is well-chosen. It carries the iconic Land Rover Series look thanks to a wearing a correct-style Marine Blue. And the white steel wheel coordinate with the removable white hardtop to add some style without jeopardizing substance. This one is clean, confident, and absolutely rugged. So even if you just drive a coupe blocks to the grocery store, there are going to be people wondering what kind of journey you were just undertaking.
You may have noticed the Santana badging on the side. It's an indicator that these were true Land Rovers built in South America. That kind of difference means you get left-hand drive example, which is desirable for practical use. It has a terrific classic feel with the thin/grippy steering wheel, tall gearstick, Veglia gauges, and proper red and yellow levers for four-wheel drive. You can sit three across up front in individual-style seats that have been reupholstered to look taut and rugged. The rear is built for plenty of function. You have a full-size spare, wide swinging door, and a rubber mat to protect the floor from big cargo. Plus, the hallmark jump seats allow you to bring along plenty of family and friends whenever you like.
The 2.25-liter motor is part of the robust tradition of durable Land Rover power. And this one shows the right signs of good investment in keeping it looking stock and well-maintained. Even the undercarriage photos prove this is a clean 4x4 that has been taken care of properly. So you have a strong-running package that upholds the tradition of the hearty Land Rover Series vehicles. The four-speed manual gearbox shifts smoothly as it gives you complete control over the motor. Plus, the two-speed transfer case and deep treads in the Mastercraft tires allow this impressive classic to still live up to its go-anywhere reputation.
These have an awesome look and feel right down to solid sound of the doors closing. You know it's time to fall in love with a well-done classic Land Rover. Call today!!!
