Perfect to whom? Perfect how?

ECR trucks are nice (very nice) but they are still built to a standard to be driven, not shown. In the porsche community some people have tried to build the perfect early 911 or 356. The lengths they go to are insane. We are not talking about using a lot of NOS parts, we are talking about using a lot of NOS part with the correct month/year date code. We are not talking about using bolts with the proper head markings, we are talking about pulling three cars apart to get enough bolts without any visible damage with the proper headmarkings (and there were several types used at various times in a given model year) and shipping them to another country to get them properly sheridized or whatever weird coating was used on them. These people spend $500+ for the rotor in the ingnition cap which no one ever sees!

Some people have restored series I land rovers to close to this level of "perfect," but I have never seen a NAS 110 done this way. OTOH my perfect 110 is comprised of used parts from a dozen plus rovers and is held together by McMaster Carr bolts.

Good luck with the search Mike. I can't wait to see what you do to it.

Ron

Corvette guys are like that too. Date coded wiper blades. WTF dude.

I have taken tons of pictures of everything, right down to the yellow grease pencil marks on the inside of original NAS 110 bulkheads. So someday when a customer says "make it perfect", we'll be ready.

I still think they should be driven though. I hate 110s that are treated as "collector cars" personally. Load'm up with gear, kids, dogs and head out is what I think they are for.

Mike - There is a restoration project here

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...266.03,,0,5.57

Don't have any details, but if it works out could we swap the info for a wiring diagram for a 94 AC AND a 95 defender AC so I can retro fit it!

Ya, those Corvette,Porsche, and Shelby nuts really are too much. Date-coded eveything...get a life....The Defender crowd is so much cooler and less anal. Mike is right, these trucks were made for kids,dogs,gear, mountains and the beach...a perfect one would be pointless and absurd.

no new trucks here ... just gradually making mine better!

Nope, but I've heard both good and bad things about that Rich Moody guy in Jamestown. Used to sail up there and know some of the families in the area.

I'm sure Mike probably knows/knows of him though and can make his own assumptions.

I've only ever seen 1 truck that came from that shop and it was a Disco 1 Tdi conversion that had been completely shagged by the pervious owner, so I don't have anything to go on.

I'm only passing on a lead ... but if anyone has the parts to make it good again it's ECR ... and with pool of reasonable cost 100's I'm thinking all options need to be considered.

Mike,
I might have the truck for you. NAS 110 #25/25. Need to make room for the new Sportsmobile...

I've attached a poor photo of the 110 at Chiko Lake in BC, but will take some more detailed ones if you're interested. I purchased this 110 in CA back in 2002 from the third owner, who purchased it from Nick Baggarly. I think Nick got it from the original owner. It has about 110,000 KM on the clock. This vehicle was the very last NAS 110 ever imported by LRNA. WA State title and reg.

All the work listed below was very nicely done by Gord'n Perrot here in Seattle. I hardly use the 110 and it deserves an owner who will give it a good home and use it as intended. I usually take it out for a few months in the summer, then it's back to storage in our rainy winter/fall/spring. I'm always amazed that each year it fires up on the first click! Passes WA emissions with flying colors every year.

The dash is still unmolested and everything works, though as you know, the HVAC in the NAS 110s was very weak. The Truckvault fills the entire rear tub but can be removed, and I have all the original seats and hardware. It is a beautiful thing, with two large drawers with cypher locks and sliding cargo rails on top. There are two boxes that sit atop the fender wells. I even had a sleep extension made. You just fold down the rear seats and snap it in place. You sleep atop the drawer unit. Not sure if you've ever seen a Truckvault, but their website is here:
http://www.truckvault.com/

- New oil cooler lines
- New R380 trans
- Rear disc brakes added (Disco rear axle)
- Rear sway bar (courtesy Disco rear axle)
- ARB Bar up front with Warn 10k
- NRP Stainless Exhaust
- Bonnet tire carrier
- Hannibal allow rack custom adapted to roll cage using Safety Devices clamps
- Mantec tire carrier
- Mantec Snorkel
- Tuffy console (have the original console)
- Custom drawer system by Truckvault

Had not thought about selling the 110. In fact, I have been on the fence as to whether to keep it and send it to you guys for some restoration work or to just sell it. However, yours would be a good home for it and I would be willing. I should get some photos to you then we can discuss a deal if you're interested. Please send PM for contact info.

Best Regards - Jim Laurel

Thanks in advance.

Sadly the cars we build are well outside my pay grade.

That is just plain sad Can't ECR have a "demo" vehicle so potential customers can see what they would be getting?
