Nas 110- Lrna/1

Might be old news to some but my buddy just sent me some images of NAS 110 #1.

He was in Atlanta getting his Disco II repaired at a dealership and they had it on display.

Pretty cool.

Thought I would share.

Nice shots of LRNA/1

NAS #1/500 is in Indiana with a customer of ours.

There would also be CDN #1/25 out there somewhere too.

Isn't there also that prototype that was in the UK and then imported a few years ago (maybe I am imagining this ....)

edit: I am not on crack, well, maybe I am because I remember this crap.

SALDH1287NA911511 '92 none Alpine White Prototype NAS D110. Had different cubby box and non-auto dip mirror. External Roll bar and many NAS items were missing when the current owner found it in the UK, but have since been replaced. Built 31 Jan 1992. Also has UK VIN of SALLDHMM8JA911511

does it look like it desperately needs a SS bolt kit?

I figured I'd update this with some additional shots of the truck Ron was talking about - the prototype SALLDHMM8JA911511 truck.

NAS Defender 110 Prototype

This car is the very first of the NAS 110′s, yes thatís right, its the prototype! We have written documentation from Land Rover that this was the first car and was used as the press release and Motor Show launch car. This car is a very important piece of Land Rover History. It has covered 26000 miles from new and drives like it is new. Fitted with its original 3.9 fuel injected V8 engine and 5 speed Manual gearbox it performs very well.
Add to the that the AC, Heated Screen and other NAS standard features. This is a rare car as any enthusiast will confirm.
We have fitted many new parts to this car and refurbished much of the rest, The car is now just as good as it was when it was presented to the press. The external parts of the roll cage, roof Basket and ladder are all brand new. We learned from the British Motor Heritage Museum at Gaydon who were previous owners that the original cage had been removed by them due to rust that was caused by paint not being touched up. We contacted Safety Devices who confirmed that this car was infact the one that was sent to them to develop the cage in the first place and it differs slightly to the production models so a replacement from stock would not fit, they then told us they had the original plans and they built a replacement from that! When it was delivered it fitted straight on! Thanks Safety Devices!
The wheels have been sandblasted to bare steel and coated in 2 pack etch primer then finished with 2 pack alpine white inside and out, This is better than the factory finish as they only did the front! The Heated Screen has just been replaced due to a crack and has been replaced with a genuine Land Rover heated green tinted screen along with new rubber (just price these yourself and you will see how expensive they are!) The original seats are in mint condition and have Waterproof genuine land rover covers fitted. The floor has had genuine land rover mats fitted over the grey carpet from new so the grey deep pile carpet is in mint condition underneath. The Black wheel arches have been repainted with 2 pack black paint so no more fading of the bare plastic.

Interesting. I recall seeing one with 000 plate on it at Brit Invasion in 1992. Of course I failed to record the Vin. It had a number of internal holes for a rear heater.

Probably someone in Europe, as I do not believe it is legal for import here.

In regards to a topic being discussed in another thread, how do the modifications affect originality for the sake of collector values? They are not touting originality except for engine. Preservation and restoration seem to be more important for such a rare specimen in this case but to be able to make the claim that the vehicle is "all original" would be something else. Just curious.

There is one in the for sale section that is much nicer and way more original. This one has had too much reconditioning for it to be worth a damn.

Why would it be SALDH1282NA911511 instead of SALDH1287NA911511

Nevermind I see what you see, now. The VIN was recorded incorrectly with a 1287 because it stated 128? and the true VIN may actually be SALDH1282NA911511

Just lazy. I saved the photos without really opening or looking over the work order slip(s) first. I went by what's already stated on the registry to this vehicle. Funny, now this truck has THREE attributable VINs, although only two real ones, since it looks like there was a clerical error at some point.
