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.
