Land Rover Series 2a Ambulance

Project by Yves Leather
Land Rover Series 2a Ambulance

My aim is to use the crowd sourced funds to buy much needed components, weld the body and chassis, and rewire the electrics.

We did it!

On 20th Feb 2018 we successfully raised £50 with 4 supporters in 56 days

Hello! My Name is Yves

Recently I have purchased a 1971 Land Rover Series 2a Ambulance. I aim to restore the vehicle to factory standards and exhibit it at national heritage vehicle shows through out the UK.


A bit of History of the vehicle

During Land Rover's lifetime there have been many varied, weird and wonderful ambulance conversions carried out. However, for mainstream (British) military use there has only been one major player - Marshall Special Purpose Vehicles  Marshall Military Engineering of Cambridge.

My Land Rover is part of the First Generation that utilised an extended and raised body on either a Series II/IIA or, less commonly, Series III 109". These were in production from the late Fifties right up to the early Eighties and were based on the MoD specification 109" of whatever Series was in production at the time. Roughly 2,000 of these were made during the production lifespan.

I hope to have her on the road by late next year and continue the restoration over the next several years. And give her a nice Bronze Green paint job in the mean time.

I will post regular updates and workings of the vehicle throughout the project via my Instagram: - MetolSoup and my Youtube: - YveEl . Thank you for read and I hope you can help fund me on my project to get this piece of Military Heritage back on the road and out of Scrap Yard!
