    Think that's a Northern Developments hybrid. Got a feeling it might be with someone from Shires LRC now. If it is, I think it's not a Freelander body at all - just a fibreglass moulding of one.

    You can pretty much take the body of anything and mount it on a coil sprung live axle rolling chassis. It would be easier to do this using a Discovery chassis as it shares the 100" wheelbase with the Freelander.

    Cheers

    i was gonna say since when did the hippoo have a chassis - but re-reading it - i will be quiet.

    wont be easy to fit a hippoo body onto a disco chassis tho:(

    Actually it looks like THe Northern D-Lander is a 90" wheelbase.

    MHM - Why not a Freelander body on a Disco chassis? Would a RR chassis be any easier?

    Cheers

    hippoo is 100" so a Disco is best - but most landies are designed to bolt onto a chassis - the Hippoo is monocoque - aint it? so yu wud have to bolt it onto a chassis it werent designed fur, so no mounting points and yu might have to cut/weld/pack to fit - not impossible , just not that easy either, I wud imagine.

    someone is bound to disagree tho :D

    Oh, I didn;t say it would be easy!!!!!!!
    Just I thought it would be easier on a vehicle withthe same wheelbase!

    Saw a really nice looking coil sprung hybrid with a green freebie body on it a few weeks ago in Chipping Sodbury, S Gloucsetershire. Didn;t have time to stop and say hello, but I wish I had! Loads of questions to ask!

    Cheers

    That's a fair comment - Easier to hide welds, mountings, constructed bolt points, etc if you don't have to muck about with the "body". Matching wheelbases would leave most of the bodging out of sight.

    Cheers
