    Yeah LR4 underneath, in fact the front core support is the same part number.

    I did test drive a full size, and a supercharged 4.2L (2006) but the 2010+ interior really sold me, its light-years ahead.

    Plus with the 5L its 350HP/350TQ, so no need for the supercharged version.. although the 5L SC is 500+ HP.. which is way too god damn fast (yeah I said it) for an SUV

      Check this guy out - restoring RRC's to perfect condition in Vermont...

      He does a beautiful job. But to campare it to Singer is just silly - he's restoring them to perfect new condition, sure, but all OEM / stock. If it were me, for that amount of work and money, I'd say why not take that opportunity to get rid of all the Lucas smoke parts and sensors and wiring harness, and design a new harness and engine management system from scratch. It can look stock but function way better than originally designed.

                Bought my first RRC! Picked it up in the most Northern part of Holland 2 weeks ago. It's a 1985 RHD car that was imported to Holland back in the early 2000's and has sat in a barn ever since. Haven't found anything online about the two tone paint job, the color is pretty much the main reason why I bought it!

                Plans are to do the mechanical stuff this spring, get the sills welded up, register it and have some fun in the spring/summer and do a complete teardown next winter.

                  Giving up on the classics, going to test my patience on the p38. Wish me luck

                    The guys at RR.net are an invaluable wealth of knowledge over there. Still loving mine!

                      I've recently been interested in building an offroad vehicle to have some fun in. Disco 1's have really caught my eye as they look great, perform well on and offroad, and seem relatively simple to work on. Am I completely out of my mind? What should I look for in a D1?

                          Disco's have hit the floor on price. Good time to pick one up. I was also thinking about getting a disco then i saw a P38 Rhino edition and that was it.

                            I read on another forum that unless you want to rock crawl in some tube chassis monster, a used LR3 is just as capable and much more reliable and nice than a disco.

                              D1s are basically the same underneath as a Defender.

                              That said, I prefer D2s for the extra comforts (They're like the e46 of Rovers...just enough to have all you need, but not too complicated), and will probably prefer a LR3 eventually when I get my shit together and shuffle the deck.

                                The end of this one is nuts...

                                I'm obviously biased now, but it seems the LR3/4 has a Ford electrical system, Volvo switches, a torquey bulletproof Jaguar V8 with lots of oil and special seals, and an awesome traction sensor and offroad system. Now everybody is copying the terrain response and hill descent stuff. They weigh almost 6000 lbs, but that's another issue.
