General Overall Dimensions for a Series Land Rover

Series IIA Land Rover

The general 'brick-on-wheels' shape of the Series Land Rover did not change much at all over the 36 years of its manufacture, from 1948 to 1984. The most significant changes were those occurring over the first few years of the Series I, as various options were introduced and problems ironed out.

An inspection of the overall body dimensions in the table below suggests that many parts could be interchangeable between the Series II, IIA and III models, since there is not even a mm in difference in overall dimensions. This is infact the case, and many parts, including those not specifically associated with the bodywork are interchangeable if necessary.

The photo above is of a 1961 Series IIA original Dormobile conversion by Martin Walter of Folkstone England. It is only in a variety of various Land Rover approved conversions where serious departure from standard dimensions can be found. In this case it is the overall height which is raised, other dimensions remain as standard.
