591 GTA is a Series II petrol engineed Land Rover that was first registered on November 22nd 1960. After being stored for many years in a dry barn in Yate, near Bristol, it was acquired and then restored between 1997 and 2000. During the restoration the Land Rover was fitted with a new rear cross member and some minor welding was carried out on the rest of the chassis, the bulkhead only required the welding of a small hole, the rest of the bulkhead being sound; the mechanical parts were overhauled and a new coat of paint applied. This Series II has its original chassis, and the engine, gearbox and axles are also believed to be original. It is fitted with a Roverdrive overdrive unit, long wheelbase front brakes along with long wheelbase wheels with radial tyres, parabolic springs, cloth high back seats and a weber carburettor. The rear door was fitted to give easier access to the rear load area and it has been used and maintained regularly since returning to the road in November 2000 mainly during the summer months as an everyday vehicle and for attending vintage shows as a display vehicle or for towing a vintage caravan; for many years it has transported vintage stationary engines and equipment to shows and events hence the new ply lining to the rear. There is a V5c and a current MOT that expires in October.
