Restored LHD V8 ExMOD 110 - Not mine

I stopped to look at this truck near my house today. It looked like a nice restoration and overall very clean. About ~160k km on the odometer and the price is set at $65k.

Is the V8 LHD ExMOD that rare to command that asking price?

$65K is beyond laughable but didn't somebody once say that there is a sucker born every minute.

K-code Mustangs are rare and expensive, so you should pay 50 grand for a six-cylinder notchback. Typical crap.

No it is not worth that price. It likely wasn't a V8 from birth either. I could be wrong, but I do not think the early contract had GS soft tops with V8s. They should have been 2.5 N/As w/o power steering. Probably has had lots of work done to it that has cost a significant amount of coin; however, the idea that every ex-mod vehicle that has had work done to it is worth 97 NAS LE hard top in willow green prices is really beginning to irritate me.

I sure hope so! I have one in VT. LHD V8 110 ex mod soft top. I was only asking $22k and has a lot of accessories. ------ Follow up post added August 19th, 2015 04:17 PM ------ They made 500 of the V8's for the MOD. Some with LT95's and high cap beds for SAS rest for MP units and a couple others. They also are de rated down to 95HP. They are very rare but not 65k rare

I was surprised to hear from him that it was in fact a V8 from birth and that customs gave him no trouble on this one.

He also has a frame-off restored 5 door in white that he is about to list that looked beautiful. I can only imagine what the price will be on that one.

I'll grab more photos and look at the vin code later this week.

It should decode as a V8 for the MOD so customs will have no issues.

When production stops in Dec and parts support stops as existing stocks diminish,prices will skyrocket beyond what any of us are comfortable with.

Everyones definition of "restore" seems to be different. If it was completely disassembled and every bit of steel galvanized and painstakingly re-assembled the hours of labor would be huge.

Interior is a series deluxe set of seats. Leather ? I think not.

Decided right as an 89 110 V8 army contract

Stand corrected. I thought it was just those hi-cap ones and the odd 127 that had the V8s. Also I didn't realize it was 89. Somehow my brain hasn't registered that there is anything beyond an 85. Haha.

They mostly made the for RAF and army MP units. Story I heard from the old hands is it was so they could pull over the slower 2.5NA's.

Haha! A couple of 2.5 NA's chasing each other around would be funny as hell! But like watching paint dry.

I let a friend drive my 2.5NA recently and he was "astonished" by the speed

Pretty sure they are the 134hp edition V8.

Based on the VIN, this 110 was a CKD build (Complete Knock Down). It was assembled somewhere other than Solihull, UK.
