used car of the day 1986 land rover 110

Today, we give you a beast to gawk at. This 1986 Land Rover 110 is right-hand drive, has been converted to run a 200tdi engine, has just 27,500 kilometers on the clock, and has a manual transmission.

The rig was imported about a decade ago and had its fluids replaced in 2018 -- they've been maintained since, we're told.

There is some surface corrosion.

There's a list of new or replaced items, including a new turbocharger and intercooler and a new timing belt. The clutch and brakes have been replaced and the cylinder head has been machined.

The Ohio-based seller asks $30,000 for this safari-ready rig. Give it a look see here.

  • Analoggrotto They appear to have retained the profile... another phoned in toyota design just change the front and rear caps and retain the unibody (lookin at you TX and Land Cruiser) .
  • Dukeisduke "Though it’s hard to get terribly excited based on a singular image. Toyota will almost assuredly dump the 3.5-liter V6 as an option and run with an array of economical four bangers."This is another way that the automakers will "encourage" buyers to move to EVs - by building ICE powertrains that are hot garbage, like turbo fours.
  • MaintenanceCosts Why?
  • 28-Cars-Later So here's the headline between the lines, dealers are worried the Federal government isn't going to pay them in a reasonable timeframe (or perhaps not at all ?) and it will create cashflow problems. This is through the looking glass stuff.
  • SCE to AUX "scheme" appears 5 times in this story. We get it.I don't understand the concern. Many, many EV credits have passed to dealers/mfrs in the decade since since Cash For Clunkers, and did so for leased EVs. I've leased two EVs, and the Federal subsidy went straight to the mfr - not me. The dealer took that figure off the sale price.You'd think the dealers (especially Nissan) had never seen this before - how ridiculous.Tell you what, dealers - advise your mfrs you'd rather not take the risk, and see how that goes.
