1984 Land Rover DefenderBeautiful left hand drive 110 with very, very strong running 300 Tdi motor. Correct VIN is SALLDHMC8AA214855
Other than the motor, completely original truck in very nice shape. Interior is clean and tight. No rips or tears in the seating. Head liner is tight too. Foot wells both repaired and are great. All gauges (other than the ones in the center) and switches work including signals, lights, wipers etc. All glass is perfect. One minor blemish on passenger side C pillar about the size of a quarter. New rubber mats throughout.
Structurally, truck is near perfect. Bulkhead is solid throughout with minor repairs under windscreen. Frame is flawless as is rear cross member. Outriggers are perfect. All door frames are solid as well. Exhaust is tight and quiet.
I had the truck sanded down, minor body work performed to address a few dings and then resprayed. It is not a show quality paint job but still very, very nice. The tires and wheels are brand new.
300 Tdi motor installed here in the States. Unfortunately, there is no history on the motor. However, it runs incredibly strong and starts every time barely after turning the key. There is absolutely no smoke, like zero smoke after starting it. New timing belt, clutch, clutch cover and throw out bearing. Shifts very well and is smooth thru all the gears. Truck handles and brakes better than you would expect as well.
Trucks such as this one do not come around very often at all. The 300 Tdi is night and day compared to any 2.5 diesel or 3.5L V8. The power, acceleration and speed of this motor and truck is second to none from a Defender standpoint. This truck needs nothing to drive home and you will be hard pressed to find a 110 with a 300 in the States in this condition for this price. I just finished a 2 year long 110 project truck, otherwise, this one would be in my drivewaypermanently. If you have any questions, let me know. No low balls or tire kickers. If you have made it to the end of the listing, you know how rare trucks like this is. Thanks for reading and again, let me know what questions you have.
