1985 110 Land Rover on 2040-cars

Year:1985 Mileage:176500

 Well the time has come, I am selling my 110 Land Rover. Not an easy decision, but the time is now. To start with its a 1985 110, which is pre defender. Unlike most of the "1985" Defenders on ebay and similar sites the details can be seen clearly, the door handles, the galvanised strip on the door sides and the lack of air con or a 6 speed box or shiny metallic paint. I'm sure enough of the Land Rover fans here in the USA have seen the videos of customs crushing Defenders which have had chassis plates changed for older have been warned.Some of the bigger export companies in England offer the service, for a fee.

     So here it goes,1985 110, has been retro fitted with a 200tdi from a 1st gen Discovery, which I purchased in England where I was living and where the work was done. I also had the transfer box from the Discovery fitted at the same time as it gives a slightly better overall cruising on the highway. This is the forth Defender that I've owned and the best by far, been working up the Land Rover family chain for too long now. 4 defenders, 4 discoverys, 1 freelander,2 range rovers, 1 series3 and 1 forward control.

  Back to it,  I had the original 5 speed rebuilt, with a new clutch at the same time, I also fitted a uprated and much bigger Allard intercooler, thermostatic fan, and most of the upgrades at the same time. The 200tdi and the transfer box came out of a Discovery 1 with 98000 miles on it, I purchased the entire vehicle for the two parts, and I've done less than 3000 miles since the fitting.

These include;

Warn M8000 winch

ARB Bumper

Old Man Emu +2" Springs and Shocks

Allard Intercooler

Thermostatic electric cooling fan


Discovery Transfer box

6 x Wolf Military Rims

6 x General AT2 Tires


Wing top protectors

Snow cover for heater intake

Alloy Steering guard

Power Steering

1997 Defender front seats

Trakker  highback mid row seats

Rear bench seats included

Utility body sides

Brownchurch roof rack(cut down to fit into a shipping container) and ladder

piggy back fuel tank(goes in place of filler pipe to give more capacity)

European style tow hitch set up

bearmach roof light bar to hold 4 lights and an antenna

alloy cubby box between front seats, holds stereo, pioneer with cd and usb plug in

dash pod with room for more gauges and switches, extra power points

t max split charge manager

1 x red top optima + 1 x yellow top optima

X Engineering disc brake E brake

Polybush bushing throughout

Mantec rear wheel carrier with bracket for hi-lift jack

Zeus rear wheel dics brake conversion

Also included, rear crossmember replacement part and flared wheel arches

  I think that's most of it, but I'm sure there is a lot that I've not remembered to include. The paint is shabby and it has been around many a block, from Russia to the artic circle, to Africa and back and now here to the USA, this 110 has done it, it has been in deserts , mountains, tundra and most things inbetween, so its not too shiny,has been dented, does not get waxed and has never been garaged. The heater is terrible, the door frames could do with being repaired and I think the thermostatic controller for the fan is playing up. I'd drive it anywhere today but I have moved on so its time to let go.

Jaguar Land Rover calls in handful of vehicles over suspension bolts

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 08:44:00 EST

With most recalls seemingly affecting mass-market vehicles, it'd be all too easy to assume, consciously or otherwise, that higher-end automobiles never face such issues. But the main reason we don't see the NHTSA recalling more luxury automobiles isn't because of their quality, we'd postulate: it's because of their relative scarcity.
Take Jaguar Land Rover, recalls of whose vehicles we only seem to have cause to report about once a year. So if you're figuring they're about due, here you go. The Indian-owned British auto group has just announced two recalls, both regarding suspension components: one affecting Jaguars and another concerning - you guessed it - Land Rovers.
First up we have a recall for 2013 to 2014 model year Jaguar XJ, XF and XK models - a whopping 297 of them - which have been found to have problematic toe links. Separation of the toe link from the rear sub-frame could result in impaired stability and control over the vehicle's direction, so JLR is calling them in to replace the nuts and washers on the rear toe links.

Tata to get Jaguar and Land Rover tech, platforms too?

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 09:13:00 EST

Since buying Jaguar Land Rover, Indian automaker Tata has generally left its luxury arm's platforms and technology alone. However, those days might be gone. The two of them are gradually growing closer with coordinated development and rumors of shared platforms. And it looks like all of that work and money is finally going to pay off with an actual vehicle in the near future.
According to Australian website Drive, Tata wants to make its cars more attractive to buyers outside of India, and to do that the company knows it must improve quality. The Indian company is being careful, though, because it doesn't want to dilute the Jaguar or Land Rover brands with cheap models. "You're going to see in the future a lot of sharing of technologies and platforms over time, but you won't see a JLR with a Tata badge on it," said Darren Bowler, managing director of Tata's Australian distributor, to Drive.
According to Bowler, these future vehicles are already on the way. Tata and JLR have a global platform in the works for 2017 that both companies could use for cars or crossovers. He also hinted that Jaguar's new Ingenium engines could be shared among the brands in the future, too.
