Just the early defender AC system, before they went to underdash. Seems like the 93 NAS was the swan song for this type. I don't know when it was made available for the first time, but I bet its at least 85.

there was an 83 lhd model 110 made for the Saudi market for sale in the Uk earlier this year that had this same setup- think these systems must date from then.

Ok so I am the guy who owned the 110 that everyone is talking about here. I decided to join the board since I still own a frame off restoration 1973 Series III. My dad and I completed the restoration of the 1973 in 2003, you might have seen it in some of the pics with the 110. The Series was also featured in Land Rover Owner International Magazine October 2005. They came out and did a story on it.

As for the 110, I was a bit suprised to find out that it had been listed on so many different craigslist sites.... As I didnt list it on craigslist at all. Its so nice to know that scam artists are taking pics from Land Rover Exchange and listing them on craigslist.

I bought the truck in Atlanta back in 2003 or 2004, I cant remember exactly. Ive owned it ever since... And since Ive owned it I have probably put a total of 1200 miles on it. I kept it in the garage because it was in such great shape... Personally I had never seen a nicer 110. So I didnt want to ruin it offroad... I know that sounds silly with a Land Rover, but in my case it was true...

It was more of a weekend truck for me..... As for the carbs, when I bought it they were not tuned at all... It was running so rich that the gas smell could gag you... Well they were the first thing tackled when I bought so they have been tuned and are in good shape.... As for the rest of the truck I pulled the dash and seats out and cleaned it like it had never been cleaned before, touched up a little paint in the floor boards and added carpet to the back.


I really hated to get rid of it, but I am going back to grad school in New Hampshire and didnt want to take it to the North to rust away, since I wouldnt have had anywhere to store it but outside....

So with all this being said, Hi my name is Brian, and youll probably see me posting here more often since I never knew the site existed!

I was thinking I was going to buy a beater Volkswagon Jetta or Golf for New Hampshire, but I think I might go with an old nasty Series III or something... Ive got my eyes on one....

As for my 1973 that is going into the garage at my parents house... I'll never get rid of the 1973 since my dad put so much work into it and he has since passed away... It was his pride a joy!


OHHHHH and the A/C has a Harrison compressor.... Those are GM compressors... I did a little research on this and it seems that Land Rover used them as well in the factory A/C defenders..... Weird....


Thanks everyone!

No the buyer was someone I had been trying to find a very nice tdi for in Europe. He really wanted Tony's truck. Oh well- he got a very nice truck. All's well that ends well.

The A/c will come in handy in Texas.

Still Love That Truck And I Am Glad I Didn't See It In Person First Or I Would Have Never Parted With It. I Gave A Price To The Interested Party And He Said He Would Take It.... Crazy. At Least I Have The 97 D90 I Bought From Nicole. I Have Already Started Work On It. Glad To Have Defender In The Driveway.

Brian, Still Looking For You. I Haven't Forgot.

Living near Brian and having the pleasure to meet him and his dad I can vouch for the condition of that 110. It was immaculate and in far better condition than a lot of NAS 110s I have seen. His 88 is something else. His dad let me drive it and it goes like the clappers. Like the 110 it is immaculate. His dad did a great job on it. If you see it in NH then beg him for a drive and make sure the troopers aren't around it is that quick
All the best

Hi Brian,
Long time. I thought you had moved away when I stopped seeing the 110. So sorry to hear about your Dad I was hoping to pick his brains about spraying the 109 body. The 109 chassis is all ready for the axles and hope to have a rolling chassis by the end of the year. I have then got to clean up the 200TDI and the LT77
gearbox and get that in too. I have four wheel disk brakes going in, then a new body. So in 20 years I should have a new S3 109 hybrid. However it won't be as fast as your 88. I have been working away a lot, Oregon,Maine and a few trips to the Far east so progress is slow. Dave Baxter sold his D90 MOD and now driving an LR3. I recognised the neighbourhood from the picture of the two rovers that was on the web. It had a Chesapeake feel about it. The 88 in the background gave it away. You can also barely see the tire marks up the road the 88 leaves behind. I know you will have a great time in NH. My brother in law lived there for 5 years. I am off to Boothbay at the end of the month for a few weeks so that will be fun. There are some good Rover guys up there. I want to take the RRRC but I need my van.
Keep in touch
Bill B

Bill,


I'll give you some pointers on painting the body... Let me know what you need! I was right there side by side the whole time we did the 88.


I'd like to see that RR of yours and the work youve done on the 109...


Im still living in Etheridge Manor and will be there until Sept.


Let me know when your in town and a good time to swing by!

Thanks
