The Land-Rover underwent a major redesign with the Series II.
It kept the 88" and 109" wheelbases that had come
in with the later Series Is;
the most visible changes were to the bodywork which was wider
with a "waist" and had "modesty panels"
on its lower edge to hide the chassis.
The (Series I) 107" station wagon
continued in production until a
Series II 109" 10-seat station wagon was introduced in
Some early Land Rover Series IIs had the 2-litre engine from
the Series Is fitted, but the new 2286cc (nominally 2.25L) petrol
engine was standard.
The diesel engine continued at 2-litres until
the Series IIA
Land-Rover was introduced in 1961.

There is little that is obvious to distinguish a Series II
from a IIA, but
the steering arms are attached to the top of the swivels
on a II and to the bottom on a IIA.
