Series 109"

1958-1985

We currently sell all of the Series III Land Rover chassis.

The first chassis we as a business built back in 1984 was a 109" Series 3 Station Wagon chassis, This chassis is still driving around the hills of Scotland, we recently had it back at our factory to give it a check over. The owner was refreshing the vehicle after its original owner, his Father, had passed on. The chassis was acid stripped, crack tested and regalvanized ready to go back under the car. Still no welding required. The 109" vehicle went through a myriad of small changes over the decades but the original chassis shape and layout remained basically unchanged throughout. Engines from 2.25 litre petrol and diesel through the 2.6 litre 6 cylinder petrol and the 3.5 litre V8 were all fitted as standard through its production, add to that the many varied body types from pick up and soft top in its most basic form through to Station Wagon and the Military Ambulance and Sandringham 6x6 Armoured Patrol car, which amazingly still used the original shape chassis rails despite weighing in at nearly 5 tonnes and having an extra axle added still within the original vehicle length. The 109 was also used to develop the 110, the test "Hack" being the Stage 1 V8 with its modern Defender style bonnet and grill.

What our customers are saying

Land Rover Chassis

Innovation is the corner stone to racing and Richards Chassis have always been there to help us.

When we first approached them back in 2005 they were keen to listen and explore all options. This lead to three very individual Defender based race cars that dominated podiums across Europe in Trophy raid and winch challenge events from 2006 to 2015. These cars also attended events in the USA and Africa where again they showed their pedigree taking podium positions.

We are proud to work with Richards and still use their superb chassis’ to this day on tow cars, show cars and on some of our race cars. They are simply the best Landrover chassis money can buy.
