Mike Sandone’s North America Overland skunkworks has solved the riddle to eliminating the crudeness of this beloved 60+ year old Series trucks, yet retaining all of the wonderful aesthetic charm that makes us so smitten in the first place.

We’ve all heard the term “nut and bolt restoration” and that is exactly the NAO process – every nut, bolt, trim piece, widget, and component is either new or renewed. And along the way, NAO seamlessly updates the systems that can aggravate us in these six decades old trucks, by updating the fuel delivery system, braking system to front disc brakes, using a later gen Series III fully synchronized gearbox, updating to modern-era suspension, and fitting a galvanized chassis for longevity, all making for a most enjoyable drive.

This Mid Grey IIA example shown here was completed at the NAO workshops in December 2021 and has just 575 miles since completion. The IIA was originally completed at the Solihull factory in January 1962, and dispatched to longtime Land Rover dealer, Rene Sempe in Honduras. The 88 is an original left hand drive example in its original colors, and was fitted when new as it is today with a 2.5 litre in-line 4 cylinder gas engine. And as a IIA, it wears the headlight aesthetic of that day with the cool inside headlight configuration along with the proper “breakfast” grille.

Nut and bolt restored, galvanized chassis, updated systems and charm galore, this Mid Grey IIA 88 is simply spectacular in all respects.

Copley Motorcars was established by Stu Carpenter in 1995. Working for other luxury and sportscar dealers in Boston since 1986, Stu has gained a longterm-experience in offering exceptional products at a fair price making the acquisition of a classic and luxury car as easy and as enjoyable as possible. The team at Copley Motorcars has a particular affinity for vintage Mercedes Benz, Ferrari and Land Rover Defender but also other blue chips such as 289 Cobra, BMW Z8 and Porsche 959. Since the market for these cars is a worldwide one, Copley Motorcars ships worldwide and can easily assist with the logistical arrangements. December 2019 marked Copley’s 24th year of buying and selling sports and classics. Their showroom is located in the center of Needham, about 15 miles west of the City of Boston. Copley has an interesting, some would say eclectic, mix of classic cars always on offer and find something to love about each and every one. And because Copley Motorcars is a smallish “boutique” type dealer, their classic cars don’t necessarily run out the door. A new arrival could be there for a day, a week or even six months. That said, all of their classics are different one to the next and are being looked at throughout the USA and the world. If you see a car you like and want to buy it, please contact copleycars@gmail.com. If you see a car and want to think about it, terrific too. But please, please, please assume that someone else is looking at the very same classic you are interested in so, if it gets sold, they do their very best to find another for you.
