Series 2 Chassis

We can offer two types of the Series 2chassis. All of our chassis are made from 2.5 mm British Steel and come Galvanized as standard. Once galvanized our chassis are taken back into the workshop and rectified. All holes are re-drilled and re-tapped before suspension bushes are fitted before delivery.

Production Chassis

Replica Chassis

Modifications & Extras

 





Production Chassis

The first is what we call a Production Chassis which is a direct replacement for your current chassis but does not have the redundant brackets and utilises later type brackets and cross members which are easier and cheaper to manufacture which, to the casual observer will look like the original chassis. These chassis are ideal for the customer who wants to re-build rather than restore their car.

 

Replica Chassis

The second is the Replica Chassis which we manufacture as per the original with 4 sided cross members and replica seams to emulate the pressed originals. This also includes original type brackets and we have now developed a rear cross member which is an exact replica of the original Land Rover type. This chassis is aimed at the Series 2 Enthusiast who wants to restore his or her car as close to the original as possible. We will endeavour to copy any peculiarities which may occur on your car if you let us know what they are. These chassis are more expensive than the production chassis due to the extra work involved in manufacture, but to the enthusiast who wants to restore, it must be worth the cost.

 

Modifications and Extras

We offer a range of modifications and extras for the Series II.

Modifications & Extras

All our chassis come in a range of options. these are explained below and available to choose under our prices section for a more accurate quote.

Left, Right, Uni-frame

Our chassis can be manufactured right hand drive as standard, left hand drive for our European and American customers or Uni-frame if you live in the English Channel, North Sea or the Atlantic Ocean. Make sure you specify this option on our price list page.

Bolt Up Gear Box Cross member

The bolt up gear box cross member we have borrowed from the Military. It allows you to remove the gear box from under the car rather than removing the doors, floors, transmission tunnel cover, seat box and then lifting the gear box through the doorway. Make sure you specify this option on our price list page..

Weld on steering damper bracket

This enables the fitting of a steering damper which is the shock absorber which mounts between the steering arm and the chassis rail and damps the shock felt through the steering wheel when tackling the rough. Make sure you specify this option on our price list page.

Early type for uni-frame cars

Fuel tank arrangement

On the SWB 88" chassis you have the option of fitting a second fuel tank under the left hand seat as per the Air-Portable.
The LWB 109" chassis have a seat tank as standard on the series II. When the 2a was manufactured the fuel tank was moved to the rear of the vehicle. We can therefore offer the option of running 1,2 or 3 fuel tanks depending on your requirements. Make sure you specify this option on our price list page.
