WTB: LHD 200 tdi / 300 tdi 110 - Budget Question

I have not been able to sell my second vehicle yet, but I am still trying and just a couple months out from when I would like to buy a 110. I want to make sure I am budgeting correctly and have my facts straight. I'm looking for a LHD 110 with either a 200tdi or 300tdi. I don't need it to be restored or anything fancy -- just mechanically sound and a quality vehicle that doesn't need a ton of work right away. I'm not afraid to spend some time in the shop, but I am not mechanically capable of a project vehicle right now (especially not with another little one on the way). I'm hoping to keep my price below $30-35K but is that unrealistic? I'm having a hard time getting a good feel for the price as it seems the 2.5 is still far more common (which makes sense since the 1990s only recently hit their 25-year mark). Would a LHD 90 with the same engines be much cheaper?

I have been keeping a close eye on this forum, Craigslist, and even eBay (with some caution there...) and have not seen any LHD 110s for sale with the 200tdi or 300tdi. If anyone knows of any, I would love to know more. And, if my budget is not correct, I appreciate the insight on what to expect.

Thank you so much.

My mistake - sorry... should not have left that out. Looking for a 5-door. I'll have a couple carseats I'll be putting in the back and would like to outfit the rear with drawers for camping and sleeping (which is also why I would prefer a 110 over a 90).

Make sure you check out the standard middle row 110 seats to be sure they are compatible with child seats. My early 110 doesn't even have belts and the seats are not what I would assume can handle a child seat. Upgrades can be made but do your homework as a buddy of mine was just showing me yesterday that in his 110 there's almost no leg room post upgrade so he needs going to install an adapter to move the seats back a few inches. All this could cause a little reset re your camping storage plans. Just an FYI I that came to mind when I read your ad.

And don't discount the RHD's too severely. I've yet to meet anyone stateside that didn't find adapting was quicker and easier than they ever imagined. Including myself. My wife was my first convert.

We had the same issue and fitted the later 60/40 split and seat belts and all was fine.

We have a LHD 110 that is in magnifibient condition at the top end of your price range.
Send me your email via PM and I'll get some pictures off to you.

Thank you! I did not think about carseats being an issue. It makes sense, though, as the LATCH attachments didn't start coming into vehicles until quite a bit later. I wouldn't be opposed to putting new seats in the truck.

PM sent - thank you!

Thanks for the info! A RHD-LHD conversion might be above my skill level, but I'm not afraid to learn how to do it if the price difference pays off. I'll keep that in mind. Did you use a conversion kit when you did the conversion on your wife, or just using used parts you were able to find?

If you are not in a hurry, I have a few in a couple of months,
All in the price range around $ 25 k, maybe a little more or less.

None of them perfect, but all reasonable daily drivers.

Thank you -- I sent you a PM and am interested (especially the green (I think that's green?) one with the raised air intake). I have an extra vehicle I am selling first so a couple months might be perfect timing.

Robert -

It was a pleasure chatting with you on the phone today. Thanks for your time and for the photos. The 110 you have is gorgeous. We'll be in touch!

Thank you all for your help! I appreciate the insight and enjoyed some conversations about perspective vehicles.

I ended up going with a LHD 300Tdi from Johan and am thrilled about it! After 8 years, I have finally found my first 110. Also, thank you all in advance for your tips and tricks this winter as I might be posting some updates for advice when I start a partial restoration on it.

Hello Johan did any of these come through for you. Just curious as to what you might be getting in the next couple months. Thanks!

ETA of the red one is early December. Have to put in a 300 TDI engine so maybe available early Jan. Grey one is sold.

I can offer 300tdi engine kits, all our vehicles are RHD, but we can also offer LHD conversion kits

Thumbs up

I am finally getting around to posting some photos of the 110, as requested. They are all crappy photos taken with my 3-year-old cell phone, so more professional photos will be coming later this spring/summer. The 300Tdi performed flawlessly driving 1,500 miles across the country (in sub-zero weather for parts of Iowa and Nebraska) and is just unbelievable in the mountains. Have already had the 110 up Pike’s Peak to see how she does at 14,000 feet and along dozens of small mountain dirt roads. Really… every time I turn the ignition, the sound of that engine puts a smile on my face I really can’t explain… and probably also makes me look a little like a gitty child who just snuck a cookie but I don’t care. Sadly, the 110 is out of commission right now for a little engine maintenance but more adventures to come.

I have to say… I am just thrilled with this vehicle and with the experience of doing business with Johan. (the following is not a paid endorsement nor am I being provided stock options, equity, nor other compensation for what I’m about to say…). When I joined this forum a few years ago, it became quite clear there are a number of outstanding people on this site selling good vehicles including Johan. I was hoping buying this vehicle would be more than just a material purchase, as talking to people and getting to know people is really what it’s all about. You gotta talk to people. If Johan is any indication of the types of great people in the Land Rover community, then buying in has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I know many of you already know Johan well so this isn’t new information, but I have never met a better businessman, more honest, genuine, and just down-to-earth person. If you don’t already know Johan and you’re in the market for a Land Rover, talk to him. Bottom line — the world needs more people like Johan. Seriously.

Over the next few months, the 110 will be getting a little refresh and then hopefully up to Brian at Defenders NW for a new frame, brakes, fuel lines, and some drivetrain refurbishment. In the meantime, I have a stack of nat geo maps with roads all over this state I want to go explore.
