1966 109 with a 1998 Disco interior

I have a nice running rust free 1966 109 with the interior pretty much missing. I came across a really nice 1998 Disco with a bad central computer for $500. The interior is super nice and I want to put it in my 109. Anybody do this? Things I like: steering wheel, seats, headliner, center console, door panels, carpet, seat belts and tensioners, roof rack, ladder, sound insulation, spare mount.

How much of this will work on my 109? I measured the rear seat bench and it's a perfect fit. Anybody ever see this done? Advice? Thanks!

1998 was the First year airbags was mandated in passenger cars, so the steering wheel will have an Airbag in it, not sure if that not makes it fit. I have seen people fit disco seats into Defenders before, and Defender seats into Series before, so i would imagine it isn't that bad too do. I doubt the rest of it will work except the sound deadening, you could make that fit.

That being said, i don't think a Disco interior will look right in a Series, a series 3 would be the most likely one to make it look decent, but its pushing it. But by all means, if it is what you want, then get it!

I've seen Disco interior in a 110; looked alright I think. But, If I were going Disco in a 109 though I'd swap the front clip for a defender and cut the rear arches to match, remove the 109 door sills and run a V8, and grab the axles and brakes from the Disco. But that's possibly more than what you want to do especially given that you have two NAS 110's!

Wish I had the link to the disco interior but I can't find it. But it's a builder on the east coast, Florida I think, that did it.

I used disco seats in my 88". I had to drill a few holes for the seat rails in the seat box. It was much harder to access the under seat storage and the seat base on the disco seat sits much higher up that the stock series seat cushion. This took getting used to as the tops of my legs were pretty close to the steering wheel. I've since removed them and got some old exmoor trekkers from a friend. Hope this helps.

Disco interior means less space in the front seat (are you short?). I would look for a ROW 110 and get the interior out of that. Many people upgrade (I think I saw a defender interior for short money recently).

Yikes! You removed your legs?

I went ahead and bought the Disco. My goal is to make a comfy grocery getter that had some modern conveniences. Pretty hilarious that my 109 will have a built in garage door opener! The interior door panels actually look like they are an almost exact fit.

Will do. I'm looking forward to actually driving the 109 a bit more than once per month!

WHY... don't you just fix the disco for a grocery getter and leave the poor series alone. Im not against modding a series but this just doesn't seem like a good idea. And im petty sure none of it is going to fit very well.

Just sayin..
