Looks like the Big Bad Custom's boys missed this Puma with the 1985 VIN plate. Guess they need to revise their statement on what these things are worth when they get by them.. LOL!

It bothers me that they are trying to sell truck for 200k and don't bother with even a little description. Maybe if you are spending that much money on a truck you don't need to read a description.

Nothing like an 85' Puma with a SRS steering wheel sans airbag. That should be criminal negligence if not disclosed to the purchaser.

At least the rims have the proper offset.

I love how it's priced $209,950 and not just $210,000. $209,950 makes it look so much cheaper!!

Saying Defender's have been retrofitted to include airbags? That would be quite a feat. Perhaps installing a current steering wheel with its guts removed was poor assumption on my part.

Do puma era defenders have an option for airbags? I assumed that was an LR4 steering wheel.

I didn't think so. I pointed out the airbag when this defender was posted on another forum.

Is the gauge cluster what would be in a newer defender? It looks just like the one in my LR3.

not saying it does or it doesn't but Nene would be the one outfit to do it. I wouldn't make any assumptions about an Andrew Harrison Smith build.They are the largest independent dealer in the UK and have some very good techs. They have done the larger transit engine transplants, early engines plugged into Puma wiring harness etc. For 200k I'd be expecting some bells and whistles beyond teak flooring.

traditionally leaky defenders and wood flooring should go great with each other, it'd be like me having skylights in my kitchen and then taking the glass out, that Brazilian cherrywood would not last very long.
