"Single-owner vehicle." They are probably the three most enticing words in the world of collector vehiclesand they most definitely apply when speaking about this pristine, restored Land Rover Series IIA Model 109. Delivered to its first owners in Southern California in 1962, it spent the next three decades in the dry California climate before being taken off the road in the early 1990s with plans for a restoration that never came to be. It was recently purchased by renowned Land Rover restoration specialist Lanny Clark. Under Lanny's expertise, the vehicle underwent a complete "frame-off" restoration: All mechanical systems were either rebuilt or replaced; the body was stripped and repainted to original specifications, and the interior was reupholstered in reproduction "elephant-hide" gray. Capable of carrying up to 10 passengers, it's powered by a 2.25-liter inline four-cylinder gasoline engine, sports a tropical, vented roof and windshield, curved side Alpine windows (for greater visibility), and a four-speed manual transmission with high- and low-range four-wheel drive. This low-mileage 109 is an excellent representative of one of the most popular Land Rovers of the day, drives like new, and is ready to provide many more memorable years of fun and reliable service.
