Ok so the search continues. I'm meeting a guy who also works on base for this one tomorrow. He is advertising it as a 1990 but when I run it on CalVin it says it is an 89. Also, does the "B" designate a 19J engine and if so how are those engines? This thing is super cheap, and right here so I'm very tempted...thoughts? It also appears from the picture to have an r380 based on the gear shift correct? I just want to make sure this thing is original so if I bring it back in 3 years after a ton of upgrades it doesn't end up in the hands of the government.....

I used a local freight forwarder to facilitate both the money exchange and the delivery to the port, got lucky, met a very standup gentleman. I was very hesitant to wire money directly to an individual but to a registered company first was OK by me.

Plan on a rebuild though, carpet ect can hide a lot of rust and rot. But if the price is right you start out ahead of the game...

Have you checked the frame horn as well? Not to be nit-picky - and as we all know the Brits are inconsistent to say the least - but the brake booster plate I *thought* generally has asterisks before & after the vin (not to be confused with the Leyland stamp that is on the frame horn up until '90/'91-ish).

Yeah I thought it looked a bit different from my last Defender which is why I posted it on here....I'll get a better look at it tomorrow afternoon, at the very least it'll be a fun deal ride for a few years

Obviously the graphics could have been added by anyone, at any time, but were not available until 1992 I believe.

I am pretty sure a 'G' reg was 1989.

that sure is some "interesting" attention to detail with the carpet trim on the gear shifter knobs!

Good luck with it - looks good.

why would you buy anything other than a 200tdi powered 1990 or newer ? I'd buy the newest truck I could that will be 25 when you pcs back.

Finally, found a truck. After scouring the country I found one from another guy on base. Got it super cheap. 1990 110 with a disco 200 TDI in it. I know, not the original engine, but a buddy of mine in the squadron who also has a 110 with the same engine figure we have 3 years to find a running 19J to throw under the hood of both our rigs before we ship them back to the states and just palletize the 200 TDI in the household goods. Otherwise I'll just sell her off. Here goes Defender project number 3!

Don't think the 19J has to run... Message the experts.

In three years you could buy a 300tdi powered 93 and ship that back and sell this one on.

I am down at Molesworth/ Alconbury. I have been looking for a decent 90/110 for a while. It's hard to find one that I can ship back that someone hasn't done a motor swap on. I went to Witham's as well. I think I am going to get one of their 110 Tithious. Let me know if any shows up on the lemon lot up there!
