110 V8 For Sale

I hope it is ok to advertise.

I bought a 110 V8 2 years ago so that 4 of us could go on a trip down to Morocco and follow some of Chris Scotts routes. I decided that because we could only afford 2 and a half weeks off work we couldn’t afford any break downs and I wanted to minimise the amount of spares that we needed to carry.

I went about stripping and rebuilding the 110. We did the trip last year with complete success. We were planning to do another trip this year but I am getting married and money would be a little tight.

I want to sell the beast and it is good for many more trips and is a good piece of machinery.

I want £5950, a lot I know! but much work has been done.

The full spec is as follows

Land Rover 110 3.5litre V8 Hard Top with rear window & bench seats.
