1986 Land Rover Defender British Military
Ebay is not recognizing the foreign Vin No. so here it is:SALLDHAC7BA251894. This 110 was my personal car in the United Kingdom and I imported it myself in May of 2017. Currently located in Tennessee with a clear TN Title.
I purchased this 110 while I was working for the DoD in the UK from a military collector. He was losing his long time storage facility and had to downsize. At that time, my company's contract was coming to an end and I was going to move back to TN. So I shipped my Land Rovers in May of 2017. Come to find out in June that I would be staying for another year, I decided to sell my Land Rovers rather than have them sit. I am currently back in the UK, trucks are in TN and my wife can handle the sales transaction.
Now onto the Land Rover. It is a bone stock 1986 Land Rover 110 just the way that the British MoD bought. It has not been changed or had a hard life working in some British farmer's field. It was released from military service in late 2011 and only had the one owner. Comes with a military reconditioned(1998) 2.5L naturally aspirated four cylinder diesel engine. This is the 12 volt version so no worries about having to switch from 24 volts. It has the heavy duty Salisbury rear axle. The soft top can be removed in a few minutes for open top driving. Currently reading 168K KILOMETERS which is about 104,000 miles. These 2.5 diesel engines are bulletproof and will last a long time with proper maintenance. They are NOT the fastest trucks out there. They were NOT built to be an interstate vehicle, top speed is 60-65 mph while getting 25 mpg. These are better suited for around town and in its real element: off-road. 5 speed manual transmission with full time four wheel drive. Has high and low different lock for excellent off road traction. Michelin XZL tires on wolf wheels.
110 is equipped with rifle brackets between the front seats for perfect storage of firearms while out in the backcountry.
Equipped with the military convoy and blackout lights as well.
This Land Rover would be the perfect prepper/SHTF vehicle as it has no electronics for an EMP attack to ruin. The diesel engine will run on about anything that you put in it and with the 4Wd, it will go where you want to go.
This is a 30 year old British truck, it is not perfect. The rear seats cushions could use to be replaced, these are very cheap. The paint is from years of the military painting it and not taking the time to sand off previous layers. On the bright side, it's easy to fix. There is some paint bubbling on the passenger side bulkhead that needs to be looked at. It will probably need to be sanded down and perhaps a patch installed. This is one of the only places on the truck that is actually steel. The rest of the body is aluminum. There is small dents and dings on it.
I have tried to describe the 110 to the best of my ability; I might be pickier than some but not as bad as others. This is a decent 110 for the year and would make a great fun vehicle. Not perfect by any means. But it is definitely in good shape. I suggest that if you want to buy this truck that you look at it in person. A right hand drive Land Rover if not for everyone. They will get A LOT of attention. Please remember that this is 30 year old British car, they require attention from time to time. It is NOT a gas and go car.
Land Rover is located in Greeneville, TN (halfway between Knoxville and Johnson City, TN)
