Vortec-Powered 1989 Land Rover 110

Srouce: Bring A Trailer

This 1989 Land Rover 110 is a right-hand-drive example that was modified under previous ownership with a Vortec V8, a 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission, and a New Process dual-range transfer case. The hardtop was replaced with an aftermarket roll cage and custom roof structure with a black canvas roof covering, and the interior features three rows of seats as well as a Moto-Lita steering wheel, a B&M shifter, and a Kenwood head unit connected with Kicker speakers. Additional equipment includes a KBX grille kit and intake vents, LED headlights, sill protectors, folding side steps, a NAS-style rear bumper, and 16″ Sawtooth-style wheels. The truck was first registered in the US in 2014 and spent time in several states before being acquired by the current owner in 2021. This modified 110 is offered at no reserve on dealer consignment in California with a Carfax report and a Michigan title listing it as a 1988 model.

The truck was previously finished in blue and repainted in its current shade of gray under previous ownership. A KBX grille kit and intake vents have been installed up front, and the hardtop has been replaced with an aftermarket roll cage and custom roof structure fitted with a black canvas covering secured with snaps. LED headlights, tinted windows, sill protectors, folding side steps, a NAS-style rear bumper, and diamond-plate trim are further details. Corrosion is noted on the doors, and a paint chip is present on the right-rear door.

This is a re-list after the vehicle was previously sold on BaT in October 2023 and the winning bidder was unable to follow through with their commitment to purchase due to circumstances outside of their control. This was not due to any fault with the vehicle. The winner’s participation on BaT has been restricted.

Black-finished 16” Sawtooth-style wheels are mounted with 265/75 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires, and a matching spare is affixed to the swing-out rear carrier. Stopping power is provided by power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes.

The truck features two front seats with headrests, three individual second-row seats, and a folding third-row bench upholstered in black vinyl. A Kenwood head unit connected with Kicker speakers, and additional equipment includes a B&M shifter, air conditioning, a center console, and rubber floor mats. Peeling paint is noted on the right-front seat base.

The leather-wrapped Moto-Lita steering wheel fronts a 120-mph speedometer along with auxiliary gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The six-digit mechanical odometer shows 69k miles, and total mileage is unknown.

The replacement Vortec V8 was installed under previous ownership. Extended cranking is said to be required when starting the engine is cold. The truck has not been inspected by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair.

Power is sent to all four wheels via a GM-sourced 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission, a New Process dual-range transfer case, and a Ford 9″ rear end. Corrosion is noted on the floor panels and frame.
