Well due to personal
circumstances I am having to sell “The 110”.

This has not been a
decision that has been taken lightly, in fact it’s a decision that I
have been dancing around over the last couple of weeks but sadly it
has to be done.

I hate selling
anything, especially motors, as it always seems to draw out the time
wasters who want to come along and kick the tyres whilst
simultaneously sucking air through their teeth and shaking their
heads in a way that they think this will convince you to sell the
motor for a tenner and feel that they are doing you a favour. So what
you will get here is a warts and all expose on this old D reg 110.

I bought this a couple
of years ago and it was a wreck. It seemed where ever you poked a
hole would form so instead of being the quick patch and play I was
hoping for it turned into rather an extensive rebuild. If you go to
www.nickysmith.me and click
on the category “The 110” you will be able to see exactly what
has been done to it. You will also see in lots of places me saying
that I will never ever sell it. Turns out those words were a
poisoned chalice because here we are with the old boy up for sale.

A quick list of things
that have been replaced are as follows starting from the front:

200tdi engine fitted
(Discovery 200tdi)

Starter motor

Alternator

Lift pump

Water pump

Cam-belt

Radiator

Turbo & manifold
(second hand)

Extensive work to the
Bulkhead inc:

Floor pans

Hinge upright bits
(forget the name)

Modified for the turbo
to fit

Full brake rebuild on
the front including new discs pads and calipers.

Exhaust manifold
conversion pipes

New exhaust

Wheel bearings front
and rear

Axle fluids changed
front and rear

Full brake rebuild on
the rear inc brake plate, pads, springs, calipers

New shocks and springs
front and rear

¼ rear chassis

Soundproofed where it
can be

Tinted rear windows

Carpet fitted to rear
tub

All lights replaced
front and rear

Discovery transfer box
fitted

New clutch

Clutch slave cylinder

Seat Covers

Cubby box

Painted front to back

Power steering fitted

It sits on a set of
used G90’s

Heated front screen

And I am sure there’s
more I have forgotten!

I have done less than a
hundred miles in it since it was MOT’d (I think the MOT is until June
18 I will have to check) so it’s still being run in after the
extensive work done on it over the last couple of years. The light
bar is fitted but not wired up yet.

The furthest I have
travelled in it is around 40 miles at once. The temp gauge reads a
little high but I think that may more due to the sender as it just
sits there not moving once its got up to temp. On starting it smokes
a little but this disappears once it has got warmed up! Best to be
honest 🙂

I was going to under
seal it from front to back but now I am going to sell it I wont
bother so anyone who is interested in buying it can see it for what
it is underneath. Nothing to worry about there just surface rust.

It’s old, it’s noisy
and the cab rattles inside when you are on tickover. It will break
down on you because it’s a Land Rover and they all do. It is an
ex-military model but is 12v with a civvy spec inside. Still manages
to leak oil. At least when it’s leaking a bit of oil you know
there’s still oil in it!

It is sold with no
warranty implied or given. If it breaks down on the way home it
does. It is what it is, an old Land Rover that has had the base work
on a rebuild done. This doesn’t mean it’s a new car it just means it
will last a little while longer than it was going to!…hopefully.
It is a sound base for an overlander conversion which was my initial
plan.

If you have any
questions please get in touch via message or on 07398103184.

I have the full V5 in
my name and a full receipt will also be given at the time of
purchase.
