Got friends?: ’70 Land Rover Series II 109
If you plan on doing any highway driving with your next collector car, you need to stop reading right now. These are not fun to drive on anything but the back roads, city streets or better yet, no roads. We have been there. But they are amazing off roaders that will take you pretty much anywhere and in any road condition. But there are those times when even a Landie gets mired in the muck. This one could use a Warn winch and a snorkel to be totally invincible. The rest of it is nicely done. It is an 8-seater therefore you can take friends along with you wherever you go. The seating arrangement looks a lot like the seating in a C130 cargo plane. Not very comfortable. This 109 was a total restoration and that is the way you want to buy one. It is powered by a petrol engine and it is perfectly capable but we know a Landie 109 with a Cummins Diesel and that, readers, is the hot set-up. But before you go investing all sorts of money making the swap, live with it a while and see if the romantic notion of owning a Land Rover is really for you. Click here for the listing.
