Secret Car Clubber: 1965 Land Rover Series II

This next car comes as a seller submission from Chris of the Secret Car Club…which isn’t so secret anymore because it is being listed on Daily Turismo which has a reach of about 4 people who might be able to afford a car that is a smidge above our self imposed $20k cap…and when I say a smidge, I mean $8,000 or about the cost of a dozen Citroen Xantias…anyway, judge for yourself…and I will duck as the rocks get thrown.  But I like this thing.  Find this 1965 Land Rover Series II offered for $28,000 in San Marcos, CA via autotrader and something called Brojure.
