1988 Land Rover 110 V8 County Station Wagon

One lady owner and 135,300 miles from new

This original V8 110 was ordered in March 1988 from Land Rover specialists, Droitwich Garage Ltd. The invoice shows our lady vendor as the initial purchaser, who has owned it ever since, covering 135,321 miles. Specifically bought as a reliable and versatile all-weather vehicle for daily commuting to work, shopping and travel.

Used daily and being kept outside for most of its life has taken its toll, although it has been regularly maintained over the 34 years she has owned it.

As a first aider during the weekends, our vendor has also used it for volunteer work at various sporting events across the country. The grey county decals were removed and replaced with blue and yellow ambulance markings to help with access to many of the duty sites (now removed). It is thought that the 110 has at least saved one life, long before air ambulance cover was as good as it is now, rescuing a motorcycle scrambler from high up in the Cotswolds after a serious head injury and fortunately getting him to the hospital, just in time.

The interior appears to have been very well looked after over the years, obviously a little wear but perfectly respectable. Externally, the body has suffered a little from the elements, which is plain to see in the photographs, and as is often the case, the bulkhead has suffered the most.

There is a comprehensive history file which details extensive maintenance over the years, an MOT being recorded for almost every year (27 certificates on file) and the original handbook. Most recently, it has had a new battery fitted along with a new starter motor. The last successful MOT was in November 2021, which had some advisories detailing the seat belt anchorages and the corrosion to the nearside front pillar and outriggers.

Much loved for many years, it will be sorely missed and is only being offered for sale due to the increasing disabilities of its only owner.
