Sam's Land Rover 88" petrol

Land Rover 109

Series IIa 88"

June 28 2007, this Landy passed its MOT, the steering relay bolts had come loose somehow and the brakes needed slight adjustment, apart from that it was fine.

The Short Wheelbase Land Rover 88 Station Wagon had been aquired some time ago. It was used for a few years during which time the gearbox was replaced, then a rebuild was started about the year 2000.
After removing the body work the chassis was found to be worse than expected so a new galvanised chassis was purchased and the rebuild continued with this.

There was no desparate hurry for the vehicle to be on the road which was just as well because it eventually took almost 6 years before it rolled out of the garage again. The new seats were from a Rover Montego, they fit reasonably well but they are a bit high.
