Is that an air cleaner on the front wing? I've not seen one like that
before.

Looks a bit out of place IMHO but who am I to critise (thinks of wheel on
101)

I was however impressed with the lowered bulkhead and Range rover seats.

I've got a SWB IIa with a lowered rear bulkhead like that. Had it for
5 years, it was done before I got it. Got standard IIa vinyl seats in
it tho.

Yes it is. Specially made to filter sand out in the dessert. This
happens in the top part before the air actually gets to the filter.

Wouldn't the headlamps not also be on a different location if that was
the case?
Anyone else on this?

The headlamps moved to the wings before Series III, up to about 3
years for some markets. All synchro gearboxes also madeit into
Series IIa. Basically, the change from IIa to III didn't happen
overnight.

Just like the II --> IIa transition was gradual - my father has a II/IIa
transitional mongrel that he's owned from new.

My S2a was built on the last day of S2 production, so it has the lights in
the wings, but still the crash box (synchro on 3 and 4 only). Never seen a
S2a with an all-synchro box. Rad is S3-type. The lights in the wings were
started for export models only in 1968, and only made it to UK models when
supplies of the original wings ran out, 1969-ish, or so I'm told.
