It’s not fast, but thanks to the fully rebuilt 2.25 liter inline-four, it’ll get you wherever you need to go if you’ve got the time. Only a Sherpa can go more places and again, durability and ease of maintenance were the goals. The block wears correct green engine enamel and that elaborate air cleaner assembly is designed for the dust of the desert and the high waters of the Nile, keeping the Land Rover pushing forward under any conditions. Check out how big the radiator is, the heavy-duty exhaust system tucked up into the frame rails, and the oversized axles designed to really handle the rough stuff. It’s all been restored, so it rides and handles as it should, and you’ll be surprised how nimble it feels, both on and off the pavement. Simple white painted steel wheels are the right look and they carry pavement-friendly 245/70/16 radials that ride and handle far better than the original lugs.
