yellow Posted September 4, 2007 Share Posted September 4, 2007 As it says in the title... I am looking for a vintage 110, with acceptable bodywork (meaning no powder doors, not 'challenged' i.e. dents every where) V8, with or without LPG or just a diesel, Preferably CSW or 5 door variant. I am planning a chassis-up rebuild, converting RHD into LHD if need be. Where would I start looking, and what would be the budget I would be looking for. At the moment I have 'unlimited' budget, but that is only because the SWMBO has not read this post yet. She will probably cut off funds as soon as the total sum runs towards 6500 pounds, that is AFTER doing it up... My options would be to - Look for a V8, keep the V8 or upgrade to 3.9 EFI if the 3.5 is shot... Convert to LPG if the SWMBO tells me to - Accept a 2.25 or 2.5 Petrol/Diesel and spoon in a 300Tdi, or V8 - Find a readily converted one and be happy with it. The conversion to LHD will be done eventually, as will a chassis replacement if I see the need for welding Another option is to completely build up a 110, as I have a 'V5' from a Belgian licensed 3 door 110 from 1984, buying the bodywork and drivetrain to spec. What budget would I be looking at then? I know it is not really legal , but I have papers from the previous vehicle and the reason for 'dismantling' I could make it a 'Haynes' one, by telling the local DVLA that 'assembly is the reverse of disassembly' Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
