Nice truck. My 110 is ex_Swiss as well. I like the classic look of the lift door handles and are keeping them on my 110 too. The 255/85 works ok in the bonnet, that's where mine rides most of the time but it does block your vision a lot off road when you're looking for stuff on the trail close to the truck.

Swiss Air Brakes.

I wish I knew more about the truck and what it was used for in Switzerland. Military or government? I'm not quite sure.
We've ended up with a number of Swiss 109s and 110s that were used by the Fire Brigade. All had an on-board air compressor for trailer air brakes to meet Swiss air brake requirements. Most even have an extension welded onto the emergency brake that actuate the air brakes when the handbrake is pulled. Here is a picture that shows the brake attached and one with the air compressor on the original 2.25 petrol. Opposite the compressor, there is an actuating valve seen on the other side of the fan shroud. I removed all this stuff when a TDI and 1.22 LT230 was installed a few weeks ago.

Here's another picture of the entire vehicle.

Thanks for the tip. What indicates that it is an ex railway truck? I'm really fascinated by the Swiss origins of the truck. I have been considering getting a set of replica Swiss plates made, but I'm waiting to find out more about how the 110 was used. Would you happen to know what kind of plates a railway truck uses? I appreciate any info you can provide.

The reason I think it's a rail road Landy is due to it being white, it would have had a sticker on the doors with SBB CFF FSS I will see if I can find a photo

I don't have any paperwork from it's life in Switzerland. I know it started off as a Swiss truck, then owned by at least one German, then sold to a Dutchman, and finally me. Is there any way to research a VIN history in Switzerland?

Your 110 is really looking good. Are you still at Rucker?

Yea, I live in Crestview. I went through Rucker in 92 and taught the 60 AQC 97-99. What aircraft did you end up with? I see your ATW, were you 75th in a previous life?

Awesome! Welcome to the forum. I was an 11B in the 82nd, among other things. I traded in Master Sergeant stripes for my lifelong dream of being a pilot, and I don't regret it one bit. I just started primary, and I am just now finding the hover button, so I have a way to go before aircraft selection. I've got a while to make up my mind, pending the results of the OML, but I'm leaning towards 58s. We'll see.

The old Swiss 110 needed some of it's old personality back, so I had a set of reproduction plates made. I have no idea where the truck was previously registered, so I just chose my favorite place in Switzerland, Zermatt, which is in the canton of Valais.

The repro plates company (licenseplates.tv) didn't have the correct size font for the front plates, so I had to cut them down to fit in the Swiss front plate holder, sent to me courtesy of member Arran73. Thanks Arran!

The rear plate looks spot on and fit perfectly in the Swiss rear plate holder, again sent courtesy of Arran. The best place I could find to mount it was on the left side bumperette.

Looks really good - nice work. I'd love an early original 110 in a few years - most of the early pre-Defenders have long since been stripped or heavily modified though ...

or shipped to the US
