Lottery Goals: Bespoke Land Rover

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I have a very detailed and well thought out plan for when I win the lottery.  It includes a restored Land Rover 110.  This is a good example of what I’d get.  I found these images on Google, and had to share.  I’m heading out to get some scratch offs…

    LOL…you won’t need a lottery win to afford that.  Looks like a basic early LHD One Ten, or possibly Defender 110, as evidenced by that ancient carburetor-fed Rover V8 under the bonnet.  Old as hell, and anemic for that truck, but likely reliable.  RHD imports are relatively cheap these days and of course can be made to appear newer with LED lighting and bulging grille treatment.  NAS 110’s are coveted, as would be anything leaving Lode Lane with a factory 300Tdi…  Careful what you wish for!!

      Some of these Arkonik trucks look good.  Personal taste aside, as a Land Rover enthusiast and collector over the last 20 years I can tell you the most valuable trucks are the most factory correct trucks.  Anyone in the market for a Defender variant should do his homework.  Commercial inventory out there is littered with rotted frames and “kit” trucks re-assembled from parts shipped to the U.S. in containers.  The high end dealers like Copely, ECR, Adventure Motors are high-end because they deal in factory correct, mostly whole examples.  This isn’t to say that a project 110 built on a donor frame with wheel spacers, deep tint, a GM big block V8 and automatic transmission has no appeal to someone, It’s just not what this enthusiast would spend money on.  The 110 is the best of them though, what a great looking and driving vehicle!

    Agree with NEW, you dont need to win the lottery … we just had a Heritage tribute built (fully restored) just like that one pictured above, and will be selling for $58k. The reason many of these trucks have the original drive train (and not a 4.6 or better) is that to legally import them, the original (or same VIN spec) drivetrain must be intact.  Engine and tranny swaps can be done once stateside.  We also have a rotating selection of NAS Defenders.  BUT, let me say … currently we have a Range Rover Classic that you only need to win a small scratch off to purchase…check us at https://seconddaily.com (Second Daily Classics)
