Land Rover Defender 110.

Land Rover 110.

Above is Richard Clarke's Land Rover 110 (nearly) ready for the Canning Stock Route in Western Australia. The vehicle has the Isuzu 4BD1 3.9L 4-cyl diesel engine as factory fitted to many 110s in Australia (the petrol V8 was the other alternative). The fly-wire screen over the radiator grille is to try to keep insects and grass seeds out of the radiator. Note that this model still has the galvanised capping to the rear tray (just above the waist-line) and continued along the doors.

On this Defender 110 model the capping to the tray is colour coordinated with the rest of the body and stops at the door line. At some stage Land Rover stopped galvanising the capping, relying on the paint to stop corrosion which it does not do very well.

The advantages of coil suspension are obvious.
