Thinking of selling the 110 to fund a 90SW

I am contemplating selling my 110 to buy a 90 SW. If anyone is interested let me know. Obviously since every question I have ever asked is on the board you can ask me anything or look it up.

Number 250 out of 500. I am the third owner. The truck started out in Texas. I have the original receipt from the Range Rover dealer as they were known in Jan of 93 in Texas. After a short amount of time the owner's daughter brought the truck to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles the truck was serviced at Hornburg Land Rover until 2001. I have all of the receipts for the service. After that it was sold to the second owner in 2001 who eventually sold it to me. I have all of the second owner’s receipts for service as well. The second owner had been letting the truck sit on the street for the past year. I rescued it from him and in the short few months somehow spent over 10k making it the truck I wanted it to be. None of these trucks are perfect and they are a labor of love. This is all the following I have done in the last three months:

Replaced all outer bolts with MUDUK stainless
Replaced the old rusted out hinges with take off hinges from a white 2008 Defender. New style hinges don't get the rust bleeds
Ripped out the carpet and replaced with new style rubber td5 floor in front – I feel these trucks are meant to be used and carpet just doesn’t go with that
New metal kick panels - Len from American Dirt Roads
Rubber floor mats through out – Front , middle, and heavy duty one in the back. All genuine.
Replaced Seatbox cover with genuine vinyl instead of carpet
Installed Trailhead 4x4 stainless oil cooler lines
Replaced outer right tierod end
Replaced foam in front seats. Had this done by an upholstery shop.
Refilled swivel housings with grease instead of oil
Replaced all bottom door seals
Replaced front door seals
New Battery- Sears Platinum
Added K&N Air Filter
New ball joint assembly in the rear
New power steering hoses
Had top end of the engine rebuilt (head gasket, valve cover gasket, plugs, rod bearings, cam bearings, etc) - British Car Service in LA
New cross seals and oil pan seals
New fan clutch
New transmission fluid
Brass Radiator plugs
EE Convex Mirrors
New hood cable
New rubber feet for hood
Resealed Front passenger side hub (seal kit from Rovers North)
Dynamatted floors and doors
Replaced all burnt out bulbs in dash
New AC switch, relay, and resistor
Replaced torn AC vacuum lines


Reinisulated AC lines in engine bay. Why would they run them so close to manifold?

AC recharged, replaced all o rings in system. Had the drains blown out.
Repaired short in wiring to blower motor - was blowing fuses from a faulty wire. Fixed.
Added a Mantec tire carrier - replaced original tube in spare
New center hubcaps
Had the cage powder coated black, first zinc primed. - so annoying to do since the cage had to be chemically stripped. Came out well though finally All new bolts, factory washers, and seals to hold the cage on
Replaced all broken interior trim. (door locks etc)
New silblade wipers
Removed aftermarket radio - going to install the factory one again
*New interior lights - have not installed yet - was going to put in when I did the headliner.
*New windshield seal- have not installed yet

Some other stuff about the truck. It has a rovers north winch on the front. The kind that is under the bumper. I have the Warn winch bag that came with it. Gloves are still stapled together. I have the original owners manual that came with the truck.

I think that is it for the most part. If anyone is interested let me know. The truck has 88,000 miles and the engine rebuild was about 500 miles ago.



As of right now I am open to offers if someone is looking for one.

Honestly, ... you are better off keeping the 110 (think forced savings account ... investment ... as your money is better in this truck than in the stock market right now!) and selling the 90!

Just sayin'

Well, I wouldn't say it if it weren't true!! Everyone said that the value on the 110s would plummet when the allowed the 83's to start coming this way. Hasn't happened. Even in this tough economy, I still see them listed and some selling in the upper 50's to upper 60's. (good examples ... which yours looks very much to be!).

You have done an excellent job on the upgrades!

Good luck!

Dendy

Didn't you just buy this in February?
Learn form me, never sell your 110, they are too hard to replace.

Yeah Feb is right. I know, I know. My brother tells me that daily. I still have a 90 so it would be fine and I want a SW.

Who knows. So far the only interest is in telling me not to sell. ha

I'll bring you the '97 SW...you bring me the 110...we'll swap.

What, you don't like that idea?

That's the point...you'll be happier in the long run holding on to the 110...just my opinion, I could be wrong

i agree with the others don't sell the 110, hunt arround for a 25 yr old rhd/lhd 90 is should be under $18k including shipping for an average one.

Sell the damn thing already. 110's suck. They are like big underpowered pigs offroad, terrible a/c and a pain in the ass to park in LA...... feel better now?

Move from LA to the country, get rid of the 90 and take the 110 shooting! its what they were made for! Anybody can off road a short wheelbase, it takes real skill to do it in a 110/130!
