Series II, yes, but I think an 88". It's only got one door each side. Note the double-skinned roof and the butch bumper :) ( :hello: Alexander: how am I doing?)

You are doing great, Chris! It is an 88" Series IIa Station Wagon with tropical roof.

There is only one thing that troubles me: the logo on the grille.

It could be that someone during the last 40 odd years fixed the 'Land-Rover Four Wheel Drive Station Wagon' logo, which usually resides next to the rear door, at the front.

We had one of this kind before.

But it could also be an early 'Land-Rover Santana' logo, of which good photos are as rare as hens' teeth.

The bumper is from a Light-Weight, British or Spanish. The early Spanish 'Militar' used the 'Land-Rover Santana' logo.

It is left-hand-drive, which again does not exclude the Spanish built version, and the free-wheeling hubs don't give away a thing.


Antoine, as you provided the pictures, is there any chance to get a better view of the logo?

As the filming locations are given by IMDB as in the USA and Canada, I'd have thought the Santana was unlikely; I thought all the Landies exported to North America came from Solihull. I'd not only like a better look at the logo but the license plate as well.

I am pretty sure it is a US or Canadian license plate, but I am also quite certain the Landy was only imported recently. There is a special reduced road tax (or something like that) in the US for vehicles older than 25 years.

I do not have the movie anymore, but maybe my father still has it; I'll ask him.

That's a New York plate. The IMDB says this was filmed in New York and Toronto.

Alexander, the logo is not much more visible; but just in case of, here is the video part with the Land-Rover: imcdb.org/temp/Suburban Girl - Land Rover.avi (600 KB)

The logo is quite blurred, but I can now see that it has the higher rear door and therefore is a British built version. Case solved! :)

Actually, I think the 25 year rule relates to build regulations. Import anything under 25 years old and it has to comply with full US safety and emmission control regulations. Over 25 years old and the regulations are relaxed. As far as I know there are no Land Rovers (that's real Land Rovers, not Range Rovers or Discos) built between about 1972 and the mid 1990s that could meet the emmissions regulations as they did not have catalytic converters.

If I remember correctly, the Series 2/2A 88" Station wagon always had the four wheel drive badge on the front as well as the rear, as did the early 10 seater 109". The 12 seater sold in the UK didn't have any station wagon badges (it was sold as a bus to avoid purchase tax dropping the price from around £1300 to just over £900). I believe it was only when the Series 3 came along that the badge appeared only at the rear.
