1986 LAND ROVER 110 COUNTY V8

PAUL GEAR

I just finished an engine conversion to a later 4.0-litre V8 from a Discovery 2, with a Wolf ECU, high-compression pistons, dyno tune, extractors, etc. Other than that, the mods list is small: 2-inch lift, restored interior with Golf GTI seats, new waterproof carpet, headlining, full sound insulation, custom dash, dual batteries, spotties, and custom DIY kitchen, storage and sleeping setup in the back. It also has a roof platform up top for the Oztent, and a Front Runner wheel carrier at the back. Not perfect and it will never be ‘finished’, but it’s an awesome, fun classic tourer with heaps of character. Best places have to be Vic High Country and the NSW Blue Mountains.
