1989 LAND ROVER DEFENDER 110 COUNTY 3.5 V8 - £49,950
1989 LAND ROVER 110 V8 COUNTY - FULL RESTORATION
We have a fantastic opportunity available for someone to purchase a fully restored genuine factory 110 county 3.5 v8.
The full vehicle has been stripped to a bare chassis and the chassis recently media blasted to highlight any potential issues prior to the rebuild. It is currently having a replacement rear crossmember fitted as well as two new front outriggers (these only have very minor rust but it is actually easier (and more thorough to simply replace them) . The rest of the chassis is in surprisingly good condition, despite expecting to find further corrosion than what we have (it is a UK Land Rover after all!!) Following the fitment of the crossmember and outriggers this week the chassis will then have a final light blasting before being injected with waxoyl inside. The chassis will receive four coats of zinc primer and finally powder coated in gloss black for longevity .
At this point the car can then be built anyones desired specification. I have my own ideas on how it should look ! I will be personally choosing the colour scheme and options prior to the build if it is not purchased in the meantime. To give you some inspiration I think it should be petrol (MARINE) blue with a tan leather interior and the full resto mod look - heritage grilles and matching bumper but with modern led lights both front and rear . The stock seats will be retained but trimmed in tan leather with a contrast blue stitching. Dashboard trimmed to match also but may need to rethink the colour as it may be a bit too much tan ! Carpets should be petrol blue also but with a wooden inlayed rear floor (more than likely in Teak).
Prospective purchasers should be aware that this is a full, very high level nut and bolt rebuild and not just a quick re paint and trim.
The vehicle is receiving the following works:
Engine stripped and rebuilt including carburettors
full new wiring loom
chassis media blasted, new crossmember, zinc primed and powder coated
bulkhead media blasted and footwells replaced aswell as new side panels

A factory supplied 110 v8 is a very rare vehicle indeed hence why we think it warrants a top restoration. Most of the work is carried out in house by our time served team who have a wealth of experience in rebuilding classic cars in industry leading workshops.
Customers are invited and positively encouraged to come and pay us a visit to inspect some of our previously completed restorations to gain an understanding of the lengths that we go to to complete a quality vehicle.
We operate on stage payments and will set out a timeline for your build from the off, this way everyone stays happy!
Happy to discuss potential part exchanges with any interested parties, be it modern or classic irrespective of value.
Overseas enquiries welcome.
We have a recently completed Range Rover Classic Overfinch that has undergone a full nut and bolt rebuild to the same standard that this car will be so we have included some photographs of the build for reference. We also have three further Range Rover Classics in stock that can be built to customer spec including a suffix b 3 door, 94 soft dash vogue se and another Overfinch!
I have included some pictures of the chassis post strip ready to be rebuilt as well as some pictures of other 110s for inspiration.
Many thanks for looking.
