Looks decent.

For that year there is no real rust visible.

Get pitures of the entire inside view of bottoms of all three doors. Get pics of outside view of all three. Look for rust on inside, corrosion of aluminum on outside. Get hi-res photos of the rear crossmember from outside and underneath.

That is a decent price for a truck aimed at US market.

Not rot on the doors, but getting confirmation pictures tomorrow. Says no corrosion of aluminum either, and that the rear crossmember is rust free as well.

The one thing buyer should do is actually be next to the car to inspect it and drive it before they commit to buying it.

Yes, the 110 looks clean outside and inside.. its in a clean fair condition. But this is just cosmetics.

What about the drivetrain? Does it drive? Is the engine & transmission Good? Did you talk to the seller about the running condition of the 110?

The surface rust is normal on all old vehicles. Underside surface rust is okay, you could clean that up yourself easily..
footwells look fine as well, just a few rust spots, compared to the Defenders that are sold in the states, this looks like brand new.
