This is a great opportunity to get a Defender 110 that is already stateside, legal, and registered. These trucks get harder and harder to comeby at reasonable prices each year. This is a good example, is the perfect camping / adventuremobile...or you can drive it as-is reliably as a daily driver. Everyone has their own ideas of what they need in a rig and that's why we are letting this one go unrestored. In short, this great example is entirely up to you to personalize and build as you see fit. (We will gladly lend a hand of course)
100% legally imported and registered in the State of Virginia. So no gimmicks of someone selling you a foreign car title!!! Truck gets a lot of attention and people always have a talk about it.
For a 29 year old vehicle it is in very good shape.
—> This is the easiest drive train setup! 12J-LT77-1.667 RATIO BOX. If you ask around many knowledgable folks will tell you that the 12j engine is one the best mechanical injection engine Land Rover ever made. These are well over engineered, and extremely robust 400-500K engines! This will however not do 75MPH! Just the reality of a 68hp engine! She starts right up, is not smoking, and runs right!
—>Frame requires nothing! Yes a good scrub down and a good undercoating are always welcome, but she is in far superior shape for her age to comparable trucks.
—>Body is extremely honest, as this is the original paint on display! So no hidden rust behind a “fresh paint job”. Yes, the bulkhead is nasty but certainly not beyond repair.
—> Paint, is original! Yes she is dull but honest, and that is exactly what makes this a good honest buy! You’re better of knowing what a truck needs rather than having a cheap paint job hide $$$ in repairs!
—> Everything on the truck works! Yes, all the electronics, all the lights, everything!
—> Honest folks will tell you to replace the doors, i am one of those as the doors are beyond servicing.
—> She is not serviced up, so the main fluids: gearbox, transfercase, engine oil, Axle’s need to be changed with the correct factory fluids. This is a $235 service, i will gladly preform as a seperate transaction.
I have personally driven the vehicle and know how what and where, and will gladly answer any concerns you may have. In my opinion (grew up in the back of a 109 station wagon, rrc and defender restorationist, and owned every ladder chassis landy aside from a forward control) it is a fantastic truck, good mechanically, good chassis wise, and very honest body!
Easy truck to work on and i will gladly lend a hand via the phone/skype or in person if you get stuck.
We do stock quite a bit of parts that can be purchased separately and a price for installation can be negotiated.
As with any auction, we reserve the right to cancel any and all bids, as the car is locally for sale as well.
Go explore and live well.
Feel free to inquire about our other services or vehicles.
