It has been a while since I posted something but I have been very busy and here is the result!

This beautifull 1985 factory LHD 110 Stationwagon V8 had only 5.500 miles since new! We have now done about 300 km testdriving to make sure the new owner can get in and enjoy.

During the rebuild its had a lot of things done to make this an amazing like new beachtruck.

-Frame has been coated
-New brakes allround
-New LR suspention springs and new KONI shocks
-New paint, Russett Brown as per original. All panels sprayed seperately
-New Take Off rear tub from a Puma Defender (to take the Puma rear seats)
-New Take Off Puma seats incl forward facing seats in the back, all Modus.
-New Take Off SVX wheels and tires
-New KBX grill and headlight surroends
-New LED indicators and lights except headlights
-New NAS style front bumper with LED lights
-All doorcards retrimmed in black Alcantare, sunvisors included
-New rear side swing half door with new sideswing wheelcarrier
-New Black Mohair 5 door stationwagon Softtop with new galvanised Rollbar
-New stainless steel sportsexhaust with headers
-New carpets
-new seals etc
-etc etc etc

This truck looks like new, smells like new and drives like new!

Am generally no fan of the brown paint scheme, but this really looks good.
GLWTS, Oliver!

Thank you guys! :notworthy

Honestly I wasn't a big fan of the brown either, before I decided to build this truck. But this was the original color and I wanted to restore to original and only put some new type stuff on and in.

Now, this is my most favorite build I have done so far!

I am sure the one ending up with buying this gem will be stoked to own!

They are in desperate need of a properly rebuilt 110 there :)

Hard to see, but are the door tops removable? Nice work on it...what did you do to the V8 and the transmission & TC, brakes etc....lots of nice cosmetic work!

The doors are the original 85 roll up window lift handle type, so no removable tops.

The engine is completely original with only 5.500 miles since new. that is since it left the factory. Brakes all round are new, transferbox and gearbox are rebuilt to make sure all is in perfect working order.

Merry Christmas! truck is still available.

Will ship this one in a few weeks time to my man in Miami. After we have the US title in hand I will put up for sale again. pretty surprised nobody is interested.
It is an absolutely beauty and IMHO priced well. Great worlmanship, and the color works really well. Rare to get such a condition motor also so win win all around. Will sell quick once here and marketed broadly. How sure are you there will be no issue clearing since the design is changed from a hard top to a soft top? DOT rules require original spec and condition as we all know, there were no soft top SW 110’s..?

Thank you, This is why I track down low mileage trucks and this is how I build my trucks. I am confident that the one buying this 110 will be happy for sure.

As for shipping, I am confident that it will pass customs with no issue. They look at the VIN and read how the truck has been built. This truck was built as a LHD V8 5 door stationwagon. I still see that 5 door Stationwagon. nowhere is said of what material that roof was built, alloy or Mohair.

We will see in a few weeks time :)
