WTB - In the UK original pre 1988 traditional factory model Defender 110 wagon

Please let me know if you know of one that is FS here locally in the UK. I am looking for a traditional factory model with no modifications, so I can eventually take it home with me to the US.

Where in the UK are you located?

You should be scanning all the local advertising sources ... Autotrader, exchange and mart, local newspapers ...


Also take a bit of time to read up on what's legal ...

I would look to Spain, Italy and dry parts of Europe that have LHD as standard. UK is going to be mostly RHD and chances are you are going to have to deal with more rust.

We are reside in Hanbury, Worcestershire about 20 minutes from Solihull. I have been searching all day and found a lot, the problem though is that all of them have had the engine swapped for the Tdi, and I have been told that modified ones cannot be exported back home. I will expand my search to Spain and Italy and see what I come up with.

Another thing to keep in mind is if you are going to be there a few years you can get something a few years newer and it will then be 25 years old when you are ready to leave.

That would put you in a 200tdi vintage Defender

Additionally if you get one that is not yet 25 years old it will cost less and you will have more to choose from as once they hit the 25 year mark the price goes up and people snatch them up.

I have two original 110 stationwagens located in The Netherlands waiting to be shipped to US. Can also sell locally ofcourse.
Both are 85 and V8. One in very good condition, the other one is average, good but some rust on the doors.

Both LHD

Cars are located close to the port of Rotterdam.

Lett me know if you are interested and I can give you more information.
