Founded in 1984 by a group of enthusiasts in the Southwest of England. The Land Rover Series 2 Club now covers the world with over 2,000 members. The club is actually a limited company whose sole aim is to further the appreciation, restoration and driving of all Land Rovers built between 1958 and 1971. The Series 2 Land Rovers are instantly recognisable, the world over by the curvy sides: the quintessential Land Rover look.
LEAFERS OVERLAND – ‘old skool’ camping featuring some interesting Land Rovers and their owners who are ready to chat about their experiences on the ‘road less travelled’…
This group is for the owners of leaf sprung Land Rovers who already use, or would like to use, their vehicles for overland and expedition travel, either half way across the world or half way across the country. Hopefully the contributions from the group will encourage others to embark an similar adventures…
Kay & Jon’s Land Rover – ‘Brutus’
Land Rover S2a 88” 1964 swb – ETU 377K / Military Reg No: 66 EK 90
First Used / Registered in 1963/4 Army FFR usage and no distinctions in any way sadly
Chassis No: 24113283B – Full Canvas Tilt / Colour Light Stone GlossPetrol 2.25 5 bearing block, Turner Engineering Stage 3 head, Webber carb, Ashcroft Transmission ‘High Ratio’ Gearbox, Stainless Steel replica Fuel tank, Parabolic’s etc
We have owned it since 1995 when it was in need of lots of TLC – a little bit of Chassis Welding, plenty of fixing! – used regularly along with ongoing repairs etc – replacement block due to the original 3 bearing engine throwing a piston through the side of the block. Later 5 bearing ex-military until 2006 when it finally failed an MOT with major Chassis work required….
It stood idle for about 6 years… connected a new battery, tipped a bit of fuel down the carb – Started second time!!! – clutch was freed up and it sort of drove!
2012-14 Complete Rebuild with New Galvanised Chassis, Refurbed & Galvanised Bulkhead & Radiator Panel, new brake lines, master & slave cylinders etc, fully re-wired with ‘Fuses & Relays’. Rear custom racking & cage through the canvas tilt for a Roof-rack. It has been re-built for our needs and purposes – a comfortable ride with plenty of usb outlets, sound deadening for normal-ish conversation and maximising sensible storage within the confines of a small vehicle just in time for it’s 50th Anniversary Morocco Adventure – always an ongoing project to ensure it stays ‘fit-for-purpose’ we’re just happy that it gets us where we want to go!

We are pleased to let you know that Club Stand bookings are increasing and these now include the Land Rover Series II Club and the Land Rover Lightweight Club.
If you are a member of a Land Rover Club and are interested in a Club Stand at the Gathering please contact email@example.com for further details.
We are a friendly family club who enjoy getting together at shows to display and talk about our motors. As can be seen on the stand they are a versatile motor with some owners keeping them in their military state while some have modified them to their personal taste.
Come and see us, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
