Land-Rover looks to me like a Series II or IIA, based on the distance between the base of the windsheild and the top of the hood being too small for a Series I, and the headlights are in the center with the grille, not out on the front of the fenders with the side lights like they are on Series III onwards. Difficult to be more specific without seeing the doors.

Seems to be a rare Series II/IIa 24V FFR Military unit, as indicated by the stacked lamps and special grille.

If the sidelights and indicators are one ontop of the other, rather than side by side its a military vehicle (does not apply to the series 3 as they changed the position of the lights).

I agree with Calum, this is an early 24V FFR unit. to give it the correct military name it's a Rover 8, but mere mortals like us would know it as a Series 2A 1962-1966.

For non-insiders like me: 24V FFR stands for 24 Volts- Fitted For Radio.

It seems that Rover 8 were only Series IIa models.
With 12 volts system when GS / General Service vehicles or 24 volts system for FFR ones.

As mere mortal too, I strongly agree with the IIa precision if the 1962 model year is kept. But is the 24V complement compulsory, as all FFR Rover 8 had apparently a 24 volts system?

⇒ 1962 Land-Rover Series IIa FFR?

Written in the page I mentioned above:
Quote Rover 8 was 88” SIIA, 1961 to 1967(GS 12v positive earth). Can be General Service (12v) or Fitted For Radio (FFR 24v). Also available as Station Wagon, Hard Top, CL (Commercial Logistics) etc.
Rover 9 was 109” SIIA, 1961 to 1966 (Truck ¾ Ton)(FFR 24v negative earth.) The following only applied to Rovers 8 and 9: if they had the suffix “/1”, it meant they had the strengthened diff (Salisbury) and half-shafts on the rear axle. Suffix “/2” denoted that neither had been strengthened, in other words the normal civilian specification.

This would make "our" FFV a Rover 9?
