Spotted: Series 2a in Angola

The Series 2 and 2a are considered some of the most hardy and iconic of the Land Rover models. In the early 60s my grandparents had this lovely 1962 series 2a 109″, very similar to Poppy. Theirs was equipped with a pickup cab, tropical roof, galvanized hoops/rack, and canvas back. In that era and in that area Land Rovers were necessary to travel most times of the year. In the dry season my grandparents would leave the farm and live out of the back of the rover for several weeks each year, driving out to visit remote villages with supplies. ABR-09-62
