Didn't you just get rid of your '94 d90? How many rovers are you down to now?

Down to 3.5 if janey sells. LWB, 59 SII 88", dormobile 110 project and half of an SI 80in coiler . . . and a lotus.

Title says it is an 1984 Land Rover 110 with the correct VIN. It is grey market in that it is a non-NAS truck.

Ron

PS thanks buddy . . . .

Ron, take some more and I can either give you direct access to the gallery or send them to me and I'll post them.

Sold!

We arranged for the kids to have all day play dates and my wife and I I lead footed it up Ron's this morning to see Janey. After some humming and hawing by me, we committed. I installed the muffler and tailpipe, topped off the fluids and headed for home. Other than two issues it was an uneventful ride home. The first issue was the fuel pump mysteriously lost ground before we even left town. Other than being awfully annoying to break down right next to a parking lot instead of being able to make it into the lot, it was easily fixed with a dedicated temporary ground. The second problem was my wife didn't stay close enough to me (despite me driving no more than 5 miles over the speed limit at any given time) and took a wrong turn on the highway which ended up costing as over an hour.

She rides surprisingly well on the highway. There is a squeal coming from the front wheels (kinda like a brake squeal) but goes away on turns, and a fair amount of slop in the steering (think Mr. T. from the A-team) so it might be loose wheel bearings, we'll see. The oil pressure light started coming on at low RPMS once I got off the highway near home, but the fluid levels are good. I think I used thinner oil than she's used to. She's going to need a lot of TLC.

No pictures yet.

Thanks Ron, I love her!

Howdy, I am interested in your 110. Could it be a daily driver? What are you asking for her? Thanks for your time!

It brings a tear to my eye!

This is great though, another chapter in the saga of Janey. I knew you'd fall for her charms and have to take her home. There is a certain je ne sais qois to that early coiler with a series vibe that is quite irresistable.

I'll help you keep an eye out for the correct doors!

Cameron, how much have you got? Just kidding. LOL. You a UF Alumni? Go Gators.

Neil, every weekend for the foreseeable future

Pendy, not yet. I'd go wrestle Tony for my 3.9 back before that I think. Actually there is this '98 disco still available around here with 15K on the drivetrain... But current plan is to do as little as possible (which isn't exactly a little) to get her safe, roadworthy and registered in VA, and run her for a while before deciding what direction to take her.

Jim, yes I was smitten. Please do keep an eye out for the doors. I'll have to take a closer look to see if I can possibly get away with hinges and latches on the current doors to make some time, else I'll likely have to get full doors now to get operational.

Won't be difficult to do, Charles -- New heads and lifters are sitting next to it now, bottom end is open and it looks fine, too.

Oh gee, looky here, some of the legendary non-existant doors:

Of course the guy doesn't want to ship and doesnt want overseas buyers, but the doors are super-cheap. Maybe a UK guy can hook you up.
