Wanted: Defender tdi

Hey folks, this is my first post here and I hope I have the thread in the right spot. I am in Ontario and in the market for a later model (around 1995) Defender 90 300tdi. No rust (or very little) and left hand drive. Thanks all.

I assume there isn't a very large supply of that here in the US. You might have a better opportunity going through a European source. The only one I can highly recommend is Foleys in Essex, England. Speak to Stuart Foley and let him know what you are looking for. He'll do a great job taking care of everything you need.

There are a few folks importing defenders on the east coast in Canada. I believe there is an outfit in Quebec called westfalia rv. Also there is a decent one on auto trader right now. 145 k kms.

It appears you are already aware that the import restrictions on older vehicles in Canada are based on a 15 year old vehicle and not a 25 year old vehicle like your southern neighbors.

You can always check web sites in Continental Europe as well as http://foleysv.com/ that uncle Douglas suggested.

I appreciate the responses I have gotten so far. To be honest, I prefer to wait and find a truck already shipped to Canada from Europe. I will follow up on the Craigslist BC trucks and have already checked out the grey 1995 D90 on AT in Ontario.

I have hesitated on that one because there is zero history on it and has had a so-so respray. It might be entirely fine but I am only gonna do this once and I am being very cautious. I am still on a learning curve here people. Has anyone else seen it?
