After a year and a half, stalled by two unexpected overseas trips for funerals and two boat restorations, our 1973 Series Landrover is on the road. Complete with a full engine restoration, and new or reconditioned everything, she is running sweet, bar a few tweaks as we go.
The fun bit for me was designing and making the centre console with a bit of sasssafras we had bought in Tassie about 10 years ago. I do like our SAAB seats which make for a more comfortable drive.
Here are a few pictures before we put the roofracks on. So much fun taking her down a riverroad.
The side windows were a nightmare. It took us weeks to source the rubber and the guy send us the wrong ones three times. They also are NOT easy to put in!
We took her for a longer run this morning, resulting in a long list of things to adjust and fine tune, which is to be expected.
Oh, we also put a table on the backdoor. We have lots of interesting ideas for the interior but we don't have time or money for that now. We will use our cookbox set up, which I have posted about before - more pictures to share after our camping trip next week.
I am pretty proud of this man for working his was off to get this done before we head overseas.
that looks like fun! :)

That looks like a fun car to drive.
I'm not sure what's more impressive - the suspension or the central cup holder!
Last time I camped a couple pulled up in one of those with a full-on tent system on top, which I thought was pretty cool!
The cup holder caught my eye first... LOL but my off-roading Burmese border self was utterly smitten by the suspension & the lovely high chasis. LOL.
GREAT job! Let the adventures begin.
Awesome, looks absolutely great. I’m a bit jealous. Hope you’ll have lots of amazing adventures in it. 🤙

I remember this vechicle from a movie called 'Ace Ventura' with Jim Carrey. You just got me to want to watch that movie again!
Oh and also, awesome project. I love how tall this Landrover is and the wheels are so thin haha :D good job, man
She's a beauty alright! With old vehicles, there will always be tweaks to adjust. :))
Great effort! It looks really nice. Looks a bit odd near that gum tree though, would seem more at home at the Okavango delta in Botswana. Lions and rhino wandering around...
Great effort here. Kudos to the man who worked his ass off.
Oh man, that thing looks so awesome!
That looks grand, especially the cup holder, its a beautiful piece of wood and woodwork. O can imagine you guys being chuffed with it.
That looks like one smart ride.
It will be ideal for driving across the fields when you move to that derelict railway station in west Wales 😀
Very nice, old school cool :)
Truly amazing, what a legendary vehicle.
YES, just the way it should be! No fancy suspenssion with gigantic tires. I'd live inside it the way it is, just a mattrex and voila.
