    Default Swop 110 CSW V8 for Series

    Mad or not?

    I have a 1988 110 CSW V8. I had planned to do some work on it to make it my touring vehicle again. But my wife ain't interested anymore in this Landy..

    I have a 1961 S2 SWB that does need some TLC, but is also promised to my son.

    So have a thought of swopping my 110 for a Series so we can go play with them and join the Series crowd on outings.

    Haven't decided on a 88 or a 109. It would have to be as original as possible, on the road and licensed. (Would prefer a S2 or S2a, but not imperative)

    My 110 is stock standard, licensed and used until recently as my travel vehicle to Lesotho monthly, but has since blown a cylinder gasket (I suspect as its blowing out the coolant when it works). I still drive it weekly, but need to fill up the water each trip. Gearbox, Transfer box and some other things done up in 2018 by the Gearbox Company.

    I love this Landy, so still toying with this idea. Wonder if there would be any takers to this idea.

    105 views and no replies,,, obviously people think not worth it. I have come to that conclusion as well after watching the video of the Series Fest posted by Henkus.

    Thus now the plan is to get both back properly, then have a tow vehicle for the series to go to these outings.

    If I had a series to swop, I would have done it. I have a soft spot for 8 cylinders.
    My dad would have swopped too but his S3 isn't worth your Defender.

    A tow vehicle is not a bad idea. Best of both worlds.

    Post a few pics of the Veeeehicle

    I have been thinking of a Full Camel Trophy build / look thing.
    But only a V8

    But Eish to let my Series 3 SWB go is another entire kettle of Land Rovers
    My value is nothing under R125K

    The V8 is not selling near that ? Or what ?

    Have regained sanity and dropped this idea...

    V8 at this state will not sell near to the price of your S3
