Jim I have used enough of your info from this site that I feel like I owe you one. If the truck is in the SF Bay Area I would be glad to help you out. I have lots of room to store a truck or any other assistance if you need it. Mike

Thanks a lot Mike! Luckily, this one is less than 75 miles from where my wife is living now- so I am good to go - but I really appreciate the offer.

Thats funny that you are up in Woodside, I used to ride up Old La Honda Road when I wanted to torture myself. Did you ever have a Bonatti 110? I saw one at Stanford one day when I was picking up my wife. Not NAS.

No, that was not me. Both my 110's were/are NAS. I do not even know what a Bonatti 110 is. One of my sons cassmates father has a Grey RHD 110 that I think is a 2002 or 2004(grey market), and I know he used to have a green 2002 that I think a board member here now has. Mike

Follow-up Post:

"Bonatti 110" aha. Grey. Search is a wonderful thing. That would have to be the same truck. I have sat in it before. He bought it new when he lived in England and somehow got it here. Nice truck. Mike

Thanks Jonathan - no offense, but I hope I'm not at Fort Gordon any time soon to need your garage! Why won't your trucks sell anyway?
Dan- the truck will be in NY for the next few years. It'l need plenty-o-wrenchin for sure.
Charles - Ask Ron, I have a low threshold for "needs restoration."

Well, my wonderful wife got the prize home! She drove this mess 75 miles through the snow with dodgy brakes, crap winshield wipers, and wandering steering. Her comment: "oh, its not that bad really." What a great lady, she keeps Rovering while I'm overseas.

It looks to be in nice shape Jim. Excellent find, both the truck and the wife!

What does it say on the door exactly? All that I could catch was 'Landrover'.

Its better to be lucky than good really, and I did have to give every penny that I was willing to. The truck is very much a 20-footer. Closer than that and you can really see the rust bleeds and tell that she's a bit ratty. That being said, I've seen much worse. Its tough to get a good price on a 110 when there are people out there willing to pay 25 for a burned out hulk.

The door says "Lansdown Farms" - the PO appeared to be involved in horse racing or some other equestrian activity.

Its surprising how bad they can be when they really don't look bad at all. Especially if you are really picky like myself (and Jim C judging from his rebuilds). Does that rust in the top of the bulkhead go through or is it just surface Jim? Mine went through and the PO had put aluminum tape over to keep water out but big pieces of the bulkhead had completely disappeared once I pulled away that black vinyl that goes on the outside walls of the foot boxes (between the floor, bulkhead & front door jams). I also found considerable rust by the back doors underneath the carpet there is a spot that holds water in 110s and completely rots the BC Pillar.

The rust inside the bulkhead looks worse than what is visible from the outside. I'm just considering the bulkhead to be trash. I'll for sure replace the t-pieces, ideally with galved ones. I want up the ante as far as attention to detail goes with this one, there were some expedients I took on the last one that always have niggled me. Now that I've done one rebuild, I feel I can do a much better job of planning and executing this one.

Yeah, I think you learn a lot on the first one. I know there are a few things I would have done differently if I were doing it again. I've had a lot of time I couldn't work on it that I have spent researching parts, prices, options, etc. so if you have any questions about the best places to find stuff let me know. I'm happy to help.

Matt - did you ever sell the green truck you'd been working on? I hope not, that thing is my vision for my 110 restore. Not the color per se, but the detailing. Mmm, galvanized bonnet frame...

Jim, I missed this post. You cant beat a good woman. After selling my 90 because we now have three kids and the whole family could not fit in it I bought a 110. She drove it for awhile and said I like it, now buy me one and keep this POS for you and find me a nice one,and I want an auto. Long story short we had two for awhile. How can you do better than that. Maybe I will get lucky and she will read this post. Mike
