motodrome offer for sale this now exceptionally rare and very very early 1983 Land Rover 110 V8 County Station Wagon, finished in the original Trident Green with limestone roof
This one was first registered in August 1983 and is a sought-after genuine ‘County’ station wagon hence it comes with the higher level of interior trim, colour coded wheelarch eyebrows etc, but being from the first few months of 110 production, it has sliding windows and the 4-speed LT95 transmission amongst other early features, which are still on it.
The paintwork is largely original and hence quite patinated, but it has 37 years of history behind it so should be left well alone.
The county trim level gives a nicer interior with cloth seats, power steering, sidesteps, rear step, rear mudflaps, and towpack. The only concession to modernity is a modern stereo system.
The rearmost twin 3-man bench seats have been removed by a previous owner – replacements are available from Exmoor Trim, but with a 3 month lead time at the moment.
Underbonnet, the original 15G prefix V8 has been replaced at some point (possibly 2005 according to the history) with a rebuilt, period -correct 15D prefix one, with higher compression ratio. It’s also fitted with RPI electronic ignition pack, Edelbrock manifold, Holley/Weber carb, and exhaust headers, which combine to liberate more power than standard.
MILEAGE, HISTORY ETC
Odometer reading 18000 miles – the speedo was replaced with a new one in 2008 when it was showing around 99000 miles, so we think it’s done circa 117000 miles in total. However we’re selling it as ‘mileage known incorrect’ to avoid any misunderstandings.
It comes with a large history file back to the early 2000’s, showing lots of recent expenditure.
Comes with MOT to September 2021, with no advisories.
Being an early 110 V8 CSW it’s rather rare now, looks great, and on test on arrival it performed very well indeed.
