Is this Engine Factory Shipped ?

Hello guys,

I have bought a 1987 110 SW 2.5 Diesel County couple of weeks ago. Everyone says county models came with v8 engines. But when i checked my vin number it shows car originally shipped with 2.5 diesel engin.

Did anyone knows about this issue ?

Is this custome manufactured by the land rover ? Or do i read my vin number wrong ?

Here is my vin ; SALLDHMC8BA312153

If I am not mistaken, County is a trim level. Engine option is another matter.

x2 I also know a lot of d90s were converted to 'county spec' that is to say the side windows and trim were added to the original non county vehicle (also a shitty paint stripe)

I know of 2 1985 county 110s that were 2.5L D NA powered. County is just a trim level. Note that in Europe (I should say France...), even in the mid-eighty, diesel was the preferred engine for Land Rovers.

The 2.5 was fitted until 1993. But the TD came in well before that date.

County was a trim package offered on the 5 door station wagons, starting in 1983. Over time that body style has come to be referred to as CSW but in reality not all 5 doors were CSW's.

My 83 County came with a 2.5na and a shitty stripe (Ha!). Photos in my registry show the interior trim fairly well. The wrapping/covering on some of the interior sides are kinda like heavy wall paper which still makes me laugh sometimes, but I must say it has lasted 31 years so far.

Curious, was yours built @ Solihull or in Istanbul/Savunma by Otocar ?

Never mind, answered my question by running your vin.

Nothing custom. 10f40 pictured an 83 County package with 2.5 diesel. My understanding is you could order a truck any way you wanted it with whichever engine and trim package you desired. These were hand built trucks usually built to dealer order. Unlike GM and Ford here, they didn't just build/produce an excessive number of vehicles and then force the dealerships to accept them.
