MOD 110 - Chianti Truck

Recently fulfilled a lifetime's dream of having my own 110. Fell in love with them as a kid and went on a university x-mas holiday trip driving a 110 v8 through SA, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. And have been wanting a 110 v8 ever since.

This will be a story of modification from MOD hack to purring v8 luv - as about to drop in a 3.9 v8 on manual box. The 2.5 army engine may be a dependable work-horse but its noisy, smelly and underpowered (we have v.steep inclines and plenty of clay mud)

Currently RHD and still thinking whether to convert to LHD for its current life in Tuscany. LHD better for driving but fear that RHD better for comfort

current photo and more to follow.....

Now back on the farm in Italy, with wheel/tyre upgrade. Made it from UK to Italy in one go (with plenty of Red Bull)
