Video Walk-around and Photos – Near-Mint 1969 Land Rover Series II Defender

A left-hand-drive Series II from 1969? Flawless condition and only 22,500 miles showing on the odometer?

Yessirs, this Series II Land Rover is about as perfect, rare and special as it gets. A factory restoration sees all-new canvas for the top, not a spot of grime or wear on the underbody, and even seven seats inside.

A seven-seater? Not in the traditional sense…

This Series II seats seven via three up front and four in back.

The bucket seats are all hilariously undersized, and the rear passengers will lock knees and boots a bit more often than soldiers prefer. Even so, it is very cool.

This incredible machine is actually for sale at Baker Land Rover in Charleston, South Carolina.

No price was found on the buyer sheet, but a left-handed model like this, and in this condition, might make it the finest original-spec 1960s Land Rover available in America.

Prove me wrong, American Land Rover fanatics!


One slight caveat before you cut a check for this fun beach and safari express: the 22,000 miles showing are likely since its priceless restoration, or perhaps may indicate that the odometer simply … stopped counting decades ago.

I doubt it, however. This car is absolutely pristine – even down to the oil dots on the floor under its central transfer case. Dirty oil is black as night; but this cutie Land Rover’s drips oil that is a golden honey shade.

Simply delightful. But watch your head on some of the sharp interior parts. Some Jeep-style NERF roll bar covers might make it a bit more kid-safe.

One thing is certain: fun comes standard.
