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 demanding customer data from reluctant dealers

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 14:01:00 EST

Nearly every major business is collecting consumer data these days, and keeping that data secure has come to the forefront of many customer's minds. Jaguar Land Rover North America's decision to begin requesting more customer info from its dealer network appears unfortunately timed, however. If it had come a few years ago, it might have been ignored, but in today's climate of heightened awareness, a few dealers are pushing back. To put the showrooms in an even tougher position, JLR NA is threatening to deny quarterly incentives if they do not turn over the customer data, according to Automotive News.
JLR NA instated the nationwide plan, which it calls Single View CRM, on February 7, but according to Stuart Schorr, Jaguar Land Rover North America Vice President of Communications, the automaker has been negotiating with its dealers to institute the new program for over a year. Schorr tells Autoblog that no financial information is being shared, noting that such data is limited to customer details, including things like what vehicles they own and whether they have any pending service. The initiative is meant to "improve customers' and owners' engagement with the brand," he said. Also, the company is not accessing dealer data itself; instead showrooms are asked to enter the info into JLR's database.

Jaguar Land Rover and Chery investing in Chinese plant

Sat, 24 Nov 2012 14:02:00 EST

While the European auto market for Jaguar and Land Rover is waning, Chinese car buyers can't get enough of the British marques. To meet that demand, Tata Motors, parent company of Jag and Land Rover, is partnering with Chinese automaker Chery Automobile Co.
The two announced plans to invest $1.75 billion to build a new plant and create a new, China-focused brand. 2014 is the target for completion of the factory. Jaguars and Land Rovers built at the facility will be the first ever produced outside the UK according to the Associated Press. The JV will be called Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Company Ltd.
The announcement comes less than a month after JLR announced it would open a design studio in China. It's not clear from the reports whether the two announcements are part of the same JV or two separate plans.

Mazda CX-5 named Japan's Car of The Year, Subaru BR-Z wins "Special Award"

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 10:33:00 EST

The Mazda CX-5 stamped its Kodo design and SkyActiv technology authority all over the Japan Car of the Year awards, taking the top prize ahead of the Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT 86. It is Mazda's second victory in the last ten years, the 2005 MX-5 claiming the same trophy, and the fourth time the Hiroshima company has won.
The award is decided by 60 local "automotive experts and journalists," and open to any passenger car released in Japan from November 1, 2011 to October 31, 2012 that has sold more than 500 units. Each judge gets 25 votes, his or her top vote getting 10 points, the rest of the points being spread among the judge's choice for the next best four cars.
The second-place getters were the Toyobaru twins with 318 votes, the surprise being they didn't beat or get any closer to the crossover. The Subaru BRZ did claw some mojo back, earning the Special Award given to cars that have made "an exceptional impact." The BMW 3 Series was third overall and won the Import Car of the Year award with plenty of room between it and the second place Range Rover Evoque.
