1985 Land Rover Defender
1985, Defender 110 Right Hand Drive, soft or hard top, 200 tdi, turbo Diesel5 speed Manual
Ex Paratrooper Regiment 110 Radio Vehicle.
Listing wouldn't accept correct vin number, it is SALLDHAC7BA250434
Solid truck, 177k miles on speedo but its not the original gauge and was swapped when the engine conversion was done. 5 speed manual, full time 4wd with selectable center diff lock and high -low gear ratios
Raised air intake, military style recovery bumper and rear hitch.
This defender was born with a 2.5 normally aspirated diesel. The drivetrain has been updated to a 200 Tdi turbo diesel engine and higher geared transfer case which gives excellent road speed and is far more suitable for todays traffic speeds.
No smoke on start-up, this engine is in excellent condition. Starts well in any temperature. Drives nicely, very strong engine, nice tight steering.higher ratio gears give good speed flexibility.
Body is in original condition, started as a radio truck and still has tools mounted to hood. The wheels are the latest wolf rims and the sideintake molding is also from a wolf truck. Full soft top with military roll hoop. The retainer bar and rear belts are installed for rear seats but no rear seats are currently fitted.
Interior is ok but not fabulous, no stereo, no AC. Just heat and windows!!
I have full hard sides and a full roof that can go with the truck if desired, a tailgate top flap or any defender rear door would make a full hard top truck.
The original worn paint has been replenished over the years, panels are generally good and flat. Frame is in good condition, rear cross-member original and fine. The bulkhead is sound.
Spare tire mount on hood, Tires are matching Michelin XZL’s, fronts are excellent, rears are 50%.
Offered with CT reg and bill of sale (no title in CT for vehicle of this age)
The truck can be seen in NW Connecticut by appointment, feel free to ask any questions or stop by and test drive.
I don’t mind working with your shipper and have access to commercial loading
