My current daily driver is a 1963 Series 2a SWB Land Rover

So, whats the age of your daily? Do I have the oldest? :-)

Used to own a IIA Lightweight - great vehicle. I'd dig out some photos only they have to be scanned first, really must get my scanner working.

Nope, still on original engine, gearbox, transfer box and axles. Bulkhead solid too. It was a one owner from new before I bought it and had only been used as a car and for pulling a tiny caravan. I did rechassis it but mechanically it's mint.
