While modern brands keep trying to build the next big off-road SUV, we continuously find ourselves drawn to examples from the past — not just for their capabilities, but also their styling. And few, if any compare to old school Land Rovers. Take, for instance, this absolutely stunning 1971 Series IIA by Classic Car Studio that’s up for sale.
Done up in a beautiful and striking Poppy Red paint job, this off-roader is powered by a rebuilt 2.5L engine — including new water and fuel pumps, a new alternator, and a new radiator — and has benefitted from a complete frame-off restoration to get it back into top working order. It also has updated wiring, restored gauges on the dash, a completely-new suspension, and a bunch of goodies to make this bad boy overlanding-ready (like a full-length roof rack and an off-road jack). Best of all, it’s a complete steal at just $59,900.
