Thread: Series 1 or 2

  1. #1

    Default Series 1 or 2

    Good day
    My name is Sakkie and I am living in South Africa. I recently bought a Landrover in parts and at this point is trying to get all the info I can about the Landy. As far as I can determine the enjin and chassis numbers point to a series2A, but the chassis look like a series 1 late 54/55. (What I am told by a “expert”). Apparently there are a bend in the chassis only series 1 have. Will attempt to add fotos to illustrate. I cannot get a exact match on the chassis number and hope you will be able to assist.
    Chassis no 276800787
    Enjin no. 90140771A (2 and a 1/4 lt petrol)
    Gearbox no,s 156900101 and219467 with letters JD underneath.

    I am a old car enthusiast and plan to restore the Landy if possible. I also own a vw 1960 Karmann Ghia, 80% restored and are a member of POMC. (Pretoria old motor club)

    Any assistance would be much appreciated!

    According to this website: https://www.lrfaq.org/Series/FAQ.S.C...bers.type.html

    It looks like your chassis might be from 1955.
    The gearbox # is from 1959.
    And the engine is from a mid to late 70's truck.

    Yes, some of the Series 1's had "bent" or offset outriggers that mounted to the bulkhead/firewall.

    If it's a 1955, it's a 107"
