The Big Build

In the middle of 2020 we purchased a 1983, 110 Commercial Station wagon with a lovely v8 engine. It came with an LPG tank in the back and on close inspection could have been sold as is but had the potential to be a spectacular vehicle.

After deliberation it was decided that work would commence in tidying the truck up.

Well that was then and now we are into a full nuts and bolts rebuild

As you can see the team have been busy and the vehicle has been stripped back to a rolling chassis.

So far it has had a new Salisbury axle fitted along with new suspension, bulkhead. A new heater box and master cylinder are in place.

The engine is out and has been sent off to a specialist company to be rebuilt and will return in a a few weeks.

The rear tub has been rebuilt with YRM galvanised components.

The workshop has been a busy place for deliveries from new swivel hubs, to heavy duty Terrafirma steering rods. What started as a tidy up is now a full rebuild that will be once completed an amazing V8 automatic built on top of a galvanised chassis with top quality components that will make this a real drivers machine.
