History, Development and General Characteristics

In 1958 Rover set off the production of the second series Land Rover, which received more modern look than its predecessor.
Minor aesthetic and mechanical adjustments on the vehicles from this series resulted on the birth of ‘Series II A’ and ‘Series II B’.
Land Rover utility vehicles reached their peak in sales by this time (with Series II A production). In fact, during the 1960’s the Land Rovers represented around 90% of the 4x4 vehicles on the Australian and some African and Middle Eastern markets.
The second generation of the Land Rover lasted until 1971, including series 2A and 2B.

Engine and Transmission

Series II Land Rovers could be powered by 2.25 or 2.6 L petrol engines or by a 2.0 L diesel engine. Those engines produced between 68 and 72 hp and made the vehicle reach a top speed of around 71.5 mi/h (115 km/h).
Land Rovers II were four-wheel driven and built with 4-speed manual transmissions.

Alongside the standard 10-passenger station wagon, there was also a 12-seater layout option, which actually went on to be quite popular for decades.
