1988 Land Rover 110
History Built by Leyland Land Rover South Africa. Originally owned by a farmer in Tranvaal SA, then sold to a safari out of Howick, Kwazulu Natal.

Brought to America by Righteous Trading Company in 2014 to get a L99 6.2L V8, and many years of backcountry exploring to come.

Exterior is in pretty good shape. Leyland in SA used galvanized frames from the factory. The body needs some love, but for the most part is very straight, and clean. There is a hatch to access the roof for game viewing.

Showing it's age, but will be updated over the next couple of years. AC blows cold, but has no heat.

Under the Hood

Buick petrol V8. Previous owners must've had some fueling issues. There are 3 fuel tanks, and at least two pumps. One of which is mounted to a wood board under the hood.

Are you the one who's SO had the UP sweatshirt in his FB post when you bought it? I'm from the UP (Iron Mountain).

------ Follow up post added April 20th, 2015 03:10 PM ------

By popular demand, here are a few pics of the 110's stable-mate. Rockware 4-seat tube chassis customized for 3 seats and cooler rack. 6.0L GM LQ4, TH400 w/ RV torque converter, reverse manual valve body, Atlas II 3.8, Dana 60/GM 14-bolt with 5.13's and Detroit lockers, 42" Goodyear MTr stickies on Raceline beadlocks. Lights by Extreme LED Light bars.





First test run in '12


Unfortunately, the crew I run with rarely stops for pics these days. I'll dig around to see if I can find some more.

Yup, that is us. My Wife went to Tech, and her family is from Newberry. I am merely a Minnesota/Wisconsin/North Dakota transplant. Similar plan as you in swapping to an American engine/transmission in my 3 door 110 once I get a different house with a garage here in Denver.
