New owner of an 84 Defender 110
I finally landed a 1984 Defender 110. I could have gotten a truck sooner with a larger budget, but in the end I got something within my range (>$10k) and mechanically sound. The seller (Robert from the Norfolk VA area) brought it in from Nova Scotia recently.
The setup is a 200tdi, 5 speed LT77, right hand drive, 5 door, good chassis, steel wheels, plenty of door and bulkhead rust, original aged interior, and lots of character (dents). I drove it back from VA at a very smooth 70mph.
A big thanks to Ron, Dale, Aaron and others here in the community that gave me some great advise and offered me some really good deals on trucks (though they weren't quite right for me).
Plans for my 110 simply include putting it to work, or play I should say. It's going to be a daily driver that carries sports gear, dog and one happy driver.
