1986 Land Rover Defender

This is a 1986 Land Rover 110; otherwise known as a Defender 110. It has an upgraded power train with a 300 Tdi (Turbo Diesel) engine and power steering. It has four side doors and one rear door and seats nine people. It is "continental european" meaning it was built as a left hand drive and hasn't been converted. Since completion the vehicle has been driven approximately 600 miles, but the original odometer has 242,000 kilometers on it. The VIN (SALLDHMC8BA279904) matches the number on the VIN plate in the engine bay.
It pains me a great deal to part with this vehicle. I have really enjoyed spending the last year restoring this vehicle after bringing it back with me from Europe. This vehicle has had only one previous owner and spent nearly all of its 30 years in Croatia. In July 2015, I bought it and drove the vehicle for a few days in Germany before shipping it to the United States. I checked with the US DoT prior to shipping to ensure it was legal and it met the requirements of 25 years or older and "substantially original" to include the original engine. It was legally imported and has a free and clear Virginia title with no liens. The frame had, and still has, no rust except for the rear crossmember (which bolts on) and was replaced. The excellent condition of the undercarriage is likely a result of the temperate climate of the Mediterranean/Adriatic region of Croatia.All of the restoration and maintenance was personally conducted by me except for the professional paint and sand blasting/powder coating of the frame.

Own a piece of history! The Land Rover Defender line is now shut down. As of February 2016, Land Rover stopped making this classic vehicle. The Defender is only going to increase in value. Since the Series vehicles have been produced after WWII, nearly two-thirds of all Land Rover Series/Defenders are still on the road; a testament to their design and durability and the love of their owners to keep them going. The frame and bulkhead are steel, but the body is aluminum, which contributes to its longevity due to its inherent defense against corrosion.
This is a great 30 year old Defender! Happy bidding and good luck!
