This looks like quite a nice rarity, a fully restored 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 109, that’s been re-powered with an intercooled Cummins 4BT turbo diesel engine. In addition to the roof rack, it’s fitted with a custom bumper, 8,000-lb Warn winch, and dual fuel tanks. From the sound of the ad and the look of the photos, this is a first-class truck.

Can you imagine yourself sitting in that clean, purposeful interior as you rumble across the terrain? The seller is asking $31,000. More images below. The seller offers a full write-up on his blog.

Check out this Land Rover 110. It has a sequential 5-speed transmission, 2-speed transfer case, working disc brakes, selectable 4-wheel-drive, and is made entirely out of Legos. Amazing! What’s more, every one of those features and more are actuated by remote control. Quite a project.

It’s currently listed on a site called Cuusoo, which is a kind of farm league for Lego models. If it gets 10,000 votes, Lego will produce it as a kit.

Here’s a link to the builder’s site.

Wow, here’s an original Land Rover Camel Trophy Defender 110 for sale on ebay. It was built for the Tanzania–Burundi event in 1991. The owner reports that it has had a major rebuild. Everything from the diesel engine, to axles, to paint has been addressed. What’s even better is that this particular truck is reported to have been a medical support vehicle for the event, meaning that it presumably didn’t suffer the grueling trail beatings that the competition trucks did.

I can only see two downsides to this truck: a) the $54,999 opening bid (no bidders as yet), and b) the fact that the seller states that it is not street legal.

Perhaps you can register it in Burundi?
