    Hello. I've just purchased a 1968 Series IIa (2.6 6 cylinder) from the original owner, it was enjoyable to see "previous owners: none" on the V5.

    Having lived on an estate in Sussex, it wears a proud patina than I look to retain.

    I look forward to being a member on Landyzone, the Haynes manual is ordered and I believe the first steps will be finding out where fluids live and getting to know it.

    Regards, Jan

    I've got an original S2/2a owners manual. If you want anything, I'd be happy to scan it and send it to you.

    That would be nice, thank you! It's in rather good condition, no advisories on the last MOT and a wonderful original condition.

    I've an exciting list of initial tasks, oil is seeping from what I imagine is the pressure sensor, temperature gauge is not working, a spare wheel with tyre and a couple of seatbelts to obtain. However, the condition is remarkable with solid and original chassis, bulkheads. 58,000 miles recorded and certified with the paperwork. A proper estate vehicle!
