Disc-brake conversions were also in vogue in the 1970s and can still be obtained (2003); this one is on a S3.

Dakar

The Dakar 4×4 is a kit car based on the Range Rover chassis and running gear. One sometimes shows up at the Victorian 4WD Show (4WD Field Day), Wandin, Victoria. Such conversions are ideal for a vehicle that has its bodywork damaged beyond repair.

Bushrangie

The Bushrangie is made by John Davis Motorworks -- a fibreglass body, very like the Dakar -- on a Range Rover (S1) "donor" chassis.
