Which Land Rover to take off roading? Series 2/2a/3

Land Rover Series 3In the second part of the "which land rover to take off roading" series, we look at the Land Rover Series 2/2a and 3.

Built between 1958 and 1985 are probably the best vehicles for off road fun on a budget, and are bomb proof and easy to fix.

One of the first Land Rovers I had was a series 3, and they are great fun to drive, but maybe not on a long journey!

Certainly they don't have the comfort of a cheap Discovery or Range rover, but at least if you make a mistake and plough into a tree, the panels are relatively easy to replace.

If you are fond of making contact with large immovable objects, then look for a Series 2 or 2a with the headlights in the centre as you will still have the lights shining on the way home!

The interior can be washed out, no matter what you have driven through, and the slightly harsh ride will keep your speed down, preserving the rest of the vehicle.

Land Rover Series 2, 2a and 3 summary

  • Pros: Price, ease of repair
