1986 Land Rover Defender D110
The first Land Rover had the steering wheel in the middle. It was
modeled after WWII-era Jeeps, because the designer had used one on
his farm in Wales. To keep things simple and more tractor-like, the
designer just put the steering wheel in the middle. In doing so he
also dodged the pesky nuisance of building two different versions
of the car for left and right hand drive markets.
For consignment a left hand drive gas fueled D110 Land Rover
Defender which has undergone some restoration and is now a fine
tough vehicle for off roading anywhere (literally) or just taking
the kids to soccer practice. It has become the ultimate status
symbol for the soccer mom set to show up in a Rover, and this one
is definitely an attention getter, and has built in reliability
with the upgrades I've yet to tell you about...
All new charcoal gray paint now covers excellently minded gaps and
straight steel. All this bodywork is squared off and has black
accenting throughout. The 4 door version of the model, it sports
tinted glass, and a HD ladder style roof rack to perch yourself
upon and photograph wildlife on the Serengeti Plains, or just put
your stuff up there when you go on a long trek with the fam. Black
tough bumpers adorn the front and rear as well as make up some side
steps to assist the climb into the vehicle. 16 inch black
"snowflake" pattern wheels are wrapped in LT265/65R16 all weather
tires that also can dig through mud and sand, as well as water. All
LED lighting is also seen.
Black leather with triangular stitched inserts in white thread, and
smooth black bolster buckets are the first two rows. The second row
has a middle jump seat sans headrest but in the same pattern. Tough
rubber mats cover the waterproofed floors, and the door panels have
the niceties of utilitarianism in black molded plastic which will
wipe any smudges right off. For the dash a touch screen radio is
now installed and has Apple CarPlay capabilities as well as XM
radio, Navigation, and a back up camera screen. Also, front and
rear A/C has been installed and hang below the dash. and in the
rear cargo/seating area, which has 4 more buckets in the same
pattern as the front rows only these seats are bolted to the sides
leaving room in the center for their feet, or more cargo. Noted is
a nice dark gray felted headliner and a custom upper console is now
installed. Seating for 9 and plenty of room left over.
Under the hood is the original to this truck, is a 3.5 Liter Rover
V8. It sports dual 1-barrel Solex 175 CDSE carbs and a 4-speed
manual transmission with a 4.217 rear axle ratio. All in used but
Too large for our lift, but we can use the high stance to inspect
underneath, and we find clean rust free metal structurally sound
floor pans and rockers, and plenty of heavy duty suspension parts,
which make up a radius arm/coil sprung front suspension, and a 3
link with coil springs for the back. Power disc brakes are upfront,
and power drums for the rear wheels.
All worked very nicely, with the new A/C, High tech sound system,
navigation, big screen display, and snappy seating. Plenty of room
for passengers and their cargo. A good cruiser and excellent
Grab your groover and head into the wilds of the country, 'cause
this truck can definitely handle it. A nice restoration with some
extras, beautiful paint, and big wheels, a soccer mom never looked
so cool. Big mountains with rough trails and water everywhere...
