A Poor Mans Defender.... SIIA 109

Recommended Posts

That’s the other idea.  Challenging to find TDI manual which isn’t flogged out though.  Will just have to see what come my way

Back in the 90's I owned a series 2 and my brother had a series 2A with a Holden 3.3. We had some fun. Mine was completely illegal but my mates and I would throw a few litres of petrol in it and drive it through Blenheim and down to the river then spend the day getting it stuck and unstuck. It never let us down.

Then I pulled the trans brake on when going down a small slope to a park spot so I could fix the service brakes. Transbrake locked up , landie kept skidding forwards and gearbox got destroyed. So I had to remove and re-build the complete box with many new bits. Was a good learning experience. I later sold it to some farmer.

Reading your thread and seeing the pictures brings back memories.

Awesome project - keen to see it unfold! My folks used to have a 2a Dormobile, we had some great trips in that.

200/300tdi with a manual box would be perfect in this.
