I spotted this 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 88 Utility on ebay yesterday. The seller states that it was treated to a $50k, frame-off restoration in 2000 at the British Northwest Land Rover Company, and has taken four Best in Class awards since that time. Better-than-new upgrades include dual gas tanks, leather seats, stainless steel exhaust, and gearing to allow 70-mph highway cruising.

This classic, soft-top Land Rover was finished in marine blue and features a 2.25-liter, four-cylinder, gasoline engine. Total mileage is just over 51,000, with 4,000 having been driven since the restoration. The condition really does look fantastic.

The vehicle is located in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Bidding currently stands at $14,600 with an unmet reserve. There are about eight days left on the auction. More photos below.

Update 5/19/2013: This Land Rover sold for a high bid of $34,250.

Here’s a classic overlander for sale on Expedition Portal. It’s a 1972 Land Rover Series IIA Dormobile. These Land Rovers were modified by the Dormobile company with the addition of a sink, stove, and integrated tent roof.

This one is said to have a rare, 2.6-liter, 6-cylinder engine and about 50,000 miles. According to the ad, it needs a little bit to address the brakes and a leaky gas tank but at $12,000 it may be a pretty good buy.

It’s located in Golden, Colorado. More photos after the jump.
