I knew that Defender looked familiar. Did you buy it from a guy in the Bay Area less than a year ago? I was in talks with him to buy it until my wife talked me out of it saying it was too big. I ended up with a 90. I still regret letting her talk me out of it.

Here's one of many pics he sent me.

Same guy, Daniel Oppenhiem. It has so far been great. Have had it on a few trips to Death Valley. Last week the front shocks blew and will be replacing suspension all around soon. I also will be installing an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4 barrel carb in the near future as well as Jet Hot coated headers and new exhaust. As soon as I got the truck I ruptured a dic in my back and have been out of commision for 7 months. Now that I am getting better I hope to start all the work on the truck.

Heddman makes the hedders and I will have them Jet Hot coated. Summit has the hedders for$106 or right around there.
Jet Hot cost is $165. The hedders are for a right hand drive RR. Should be OK on my truck since it is also rhd. But I cant do any of this stuff untill I sell the 109. Come on someone must want this classic?

Slow cars. Ha Ha. The only thing going slower than me on the road are series rovers. It actualy does do ok for a truck that size. Will cruise at 75 all day but throw a hill or headwind at it and it starts to slow down a bit. As far as power gains? I dont realy know. It has twin SU carbs right now and I think they came restricted from the factory to a max horsepower of just under 100. If that is the case I would think I could gain another 50+ hp between the intake manifold, carb, high flow air filter, headers and new exhaust without cats. It has a LT85-LT230 gearbox and Salisbury rear end so any increase in power should not be a problem on the drive train. I think that has more to do with the driver anyway. My 109 has a chevy engine and I have had no problems with the drivetrain because I dont drive it with a heavy foot.
