Woops ive done it again, not another bloody landie, now with added disco for sale.

Recommended Posts

Yes it probably is cheaper than others but it isn't a perfect example and I'm pretty sure I paid less than that for it, I really should write these things down as I buy that much tat I quickly forget.

I think try it on car and classic mate, around 3.5k and give it a few weeks ignoring wankers, I've sold two on there now to good honest buyers. (Notland rover other oldies)

These have big following now.

I would love this but funds just won't allow.

Okay so a little update I've sold the series and also sold the 98 defender 90,      this means I'm slimming down the fleet nicely or does it.

Yes as you've guessed I've only gone and bought another vehicle , I really don't like landrovers.

The good bit look at that mileage.

One of these days I will refuse to buy a vehicle I'm offered, not sure when that will happen but it will one day.

It is. Registered as Defender same year that Discovery was launched.

Actually it could be a really really early one . Was it factory fitted with a 200tdi ?

It wasn't. Originally fitted with a 2.5TD engine it was retrofitted with its current 200tdi Disco engine.

All the landrovers in this thread cost less than that together  😉  the  one  above was approximately 14 times cheaper than that,  I best get my arse in gear and check it over if I can get that sort of coin for it.

See, now I'm the opposite, I tend to pay good/reasonable money for them when I buy,  spend thousands more on them in a short time and then struggle to sell them for anything approaching what I originally paid making a huge loss.

Okay I've had enough of looking at this pile of shite out the window so would anybody want a project landie or know of anyone else after a project ?    I really don't have time to do anything with it at least not till my garage is finished and I keep looking at it and thinking there's my blocks to build it.

Other than 'shitey old 110', what are its particulars? Not that I really need one as the position of "SWF's green-ovalled moneypit" is already taken, but I have a weakness and am on the rebound from missing out on Asimo's bargainous Inshite.

A light lunch then off on another excellent purchase so what could I have agreed to buy now I wonder,

20200306_115502.jpg

  not another landie even though looks a mighty fine specimen nope I'm not that stupid after a thread full of them am I.

20200307_132443.jpg

Even with a monster winch well um tempted for sure but I really have no houses to pull down so nope not this.

20200307_132433.jpg

A horse transporter eh nope that would be useful and sensible when the misses sees  it as it's got living quarters.

20200307_131821.jpg

What about a lovely old bike then, Nope not this time although she's a sweet old thing though.

Have you still got the blue station wagon?

Yes for the time being it's still here, ive been in talks with someone but they've not exactly pulled the trigger yet,  I'll call them and say I've got another interested party and see if that will gee them on.

Also just had the first quick look underneath (Yes I know your supposed to Do that before purchase) and it's all colour coded, wierd thing to Do.

Is this where the fuel filter is ment to live as looks a bit vulnerable for off roading.

Yes, that is the place where the fuel filter lives! I had to change mine when I had a TD5 disco after it started leaking, probably due to that daft location. 

Have a good look at the chassis rails beside the tank. They all rot there.

Google the 3 amigos to find out more about your dash lights.

I've had 3 defenders and that's what I did with all of them, they looked fucking great for the new owners though

 

Last one I spent a fortune buying bits to make it into a soft top , only the weather is that unpredictable here that I never actually took the roof off because it took that long to get it back on with all the clips and ropes and stretchy things i'd be piss wet through

The chassis apears in good order I can just about walk under it as it's been jacked up a fair bit.

Found that the abs pump is disconnected.

Apparently this lever is a manual diff lock and the abs has to be disconnected when it's used hmm that's a new one on me.

Who was it on here that started up an electronics business ? Or did I imagine that.

That would be Cobblers.

      It's a bit of an internal debate in my head as to whether to start a car specific thread on AS. My Mazda thread has become a reflection of costs of running a 25 year old car as a daily but doesn't get much traffic, my Mondeo thread has become a general MK1/2 Mondeo thread (happy about that) and my Invacar thread has become mainly about DVLA admin...but let's give it a go, see what happens.
      As documented in the news and elsewhere, here it is. Joey spud noticed straight away that it needs to be called Yummy with that number plate. But I expect the original owner was the proverbial little old lady rather than a yummy Princess-Di (had to been done) mummy.  In those days little old ladies had been Land Army girls in the war and could deal with the lack of PAS!

      It was just 7 miles up the road from me on the edge of isle of Thanet (which is where the Mazda came from too) and the current owners kindly brought it over from their marshland home in the sticks.
      Paperwork was minimal @BeEP has kindly posted me an excellent set of owner manuals, which is great, and makes a car seem more loved straight away,

      In consultation with @RobT who is a man of taste in such matters an appropriate keyring was sourced from eBay, priorities eh?

      In it's first week with me, I've had the tracking done at a cost of £40 that has sorted out the lopsided steering wheel and generally improved the driving experience.
      Soon, I'll do a list of prioritised jobs. It has an MOT until October. 
      In true AS fashion it has no role on the fleet, or no actual need. But after I failed to secure a second 323 coupé, I just had to have it! I hope it can make an appearance at a future Kent shiters meet, and maybe a very buzzy and bouncy journey to shitefest in May? We'll see.

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
       
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
       
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
       
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
       
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
       
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
       
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
       
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
       
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
       
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
       
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
       
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
       
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
       
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.
       

       

       
      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
       
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
       
      If you're interested, let me know.
       
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
       
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.
