Front 1/4 panel dent is old and actually gone. Hated to pound it out but couldn't get the wing off (just the outer panel) to run wires for upgrading headlight wires etc. which if you drive a defender and haven't added relays to your headlights you are missing out, just sayin. Few new pin strips and possibly a dent in the chassis but nothing major to the body. All the trouble was from a suspect 200 tdi my own fault for not tearing it down prior to installation.

Until you know the facts regarding the engine, you won't know if it's actually "dead", but it doesn't sound good.

You are best to fix the things that need attention without "restoring" which would cover up the vehicles significant past.

There are lots of other 110s out there that can be restored without loosing the historical significance that Dale and others point out should be maintained with this 110.

We have a low mileage 200TDI in our shop here in VA if that will help.
Trevor, Pendy, or Matt Brown would be good choices to do the work, but Trevor (Roverlab) is probably the closest (130 miles).

PM me if this sounds like an option.
We are not crazy about getting rid of our last 200TDI, but would sell it if it will at least get this 110 back on the road.

Uncle "Richard" Douglas has a Land Rover with big wheels that never gets stuck... until he breaks something so it won't go. Uncle Douglas always breaks something. - Anna Crowther at the Conclave 2012 (AKA Carburetor Neck)

Gotta chime in here....

Dead is very relative for any Rover motor. They are designed to be worked on and fixed. Even money what you have can be fixed. It "might" be better to get another used or rebuilt 200TDI, your call on that.

I would not consider any driveline other than the 200, there will be little to no gain, the truck will lose value and it will cost more money to swap.

We try to keep 200s in stock. Get with me if we cna help...and a big plug for Trevor from me as well. Good guy and great work.

233,000 miles on my 200 tdi and still going strong, change the oil every 5000 miles etc. etc.
Great engine, replace or rebuild like for like in my opinion.
