3 Door 110 Opinions

Im just wondering if any one has any opinions about this truck on ebay. I've seen it and feel it's a tad rough with repaired lower door frames and footwells, and some other fit and finish issues. He advertised it at $9950 on his lot.

Good value @ the current price $6100. Cheapest 110 I have seen on US soil. This is the most flexible model. Can be configured as a full soft top (very cool), a pickup, or the current 3 door configuration with the "export" roof sides. Its not hard to convert a 3 door to a 5 door wagon. The 2.25 diesel is weak but a 200 tdi engine would be a direct bolt in. That said there was a 110 high cap pickup @ Uwharrie last fall that had come from this dealer and the fellow had just replaced most of the frame outriggers and spring perch's. It wasn't clear if these faults were disclosed @ purchase. The guy had paid $15k for that one. This one has been repainted, the cappings are galvanized under that paint. ask for photo's of the frame outriggers and rear spring perches. Door bottoms are another trouble spot.

Bon chance !

I'd say $8K is nearer the mark, $10-$12k if its a truck cab with canvas. more if it has a tdi, and even more if its refurbished and LHD like the one Pendy has for sale.

Same body style as mine, and while it's not a station wagon, I wouldn't call it an "undesirable model".

Mine is LHD, an Ex-Mod, almost 10 years newer, had a 2.5NA rather then the 2.25 and I paid a bit less that that.

If I ended up with something like this I would definitely want to do a 200tdi swap and LHD conversion. I keep thinking of the Columbia Rovers open top truck recently on ebay (attached photo), and considered doing something along those lines with this.

I like this model for its flexibility. @ that entry price its hard to go wrong even if it is a project. Don't know what your abilitys are but looks like a cheap way to go defender. With a tdi it would be more desireable and lhd even more so but then it would be in the 20k range or higher. Certainly worth going and having a look since its close-if nothing more than for an education looking over Defenders, the more you look @ the better. A 2.25 will not propel that truck much faster than 60-65 mph.

I would check the frame over well, the back looks a bit sketchy.

I would love a 110 regular bed and full hard top.

Too true, but I think that just about every Tdi in North America today had to be converted to such at some point, so this would be a good candidate at the right price.

And yeah, that 2.25 diesel pretty much sucked even in a Series truck.

I have looked at this truck but unfortunately I really don't know what to look at beyond the surface. My experience is limited as far as mechanics go, but I am a blacksmith/welder/fabricator by trade so I feel somewhat comfortable in those areas as well as some body work and painting.

Ron- What do you mean the back looks sketchy? He put a new rear crossmember on it FWIW

I must say, I really appreciate all the opinions offered here. This is a very knowledgeable group of fanatics that I would like to thank for helping me along the way. Hopefully someday I can be on here answering questions instead of asking so many!

Cheers

X2 what Doug stated. Buy a LR manual for the mechanics. With your skills, you could fix any metal work issues yourself, probably better than factory. Mark

I'm heading up to Asheville for a wedding this weekend, and will try to take a look. Already have 2, and don't have room for another project - just curious.

Jeff- Brandon knows what to look for, and as stated above, lots of good guys at Uwharrie this month. Do you know the reserve? I am sending a pic to Doug of a 3 door we sold a few years ago(to post)- they are by far the most flexible configuration. Feel free to give a call if I can be of help, and check our site at www.theroverbarn.com for contact info. Cheers

A guy "JSQ" posts here sometimes and his truck demonstrates how a 3-door can be ideal if you actually have a purpose for it, but its not much of a substitute if what you really want is station wagon. And while it is correct that it can be converted to a station wagon 5-door config, it would not be cheap. The work isn't difficult, but you'd have to buy t-supports ($), second-row doors ($$$), a new rear tub ($$$), roof sides ($) and a bunch of misc brackets and stuff ($).

Pictures from Dale of his old truck nicknamed "the Beast". I added them to my gallery so here are the links, enjoy (love the Stratos Blue color):

I also had 1 of these for about a year-this one had a V8 and was the quickest Defender of the many that I have had. It now belongs to a sonar tech on a Los Angeles Class attack sub out of Groton,Ct. I love it when interesting people end up with these trucks. I also sold my NAS 90 to a 140 ft tug boat Captain that tows in and docks the super tankers in Valdez Alaska.

Brandon- Thanks for offering to look at it. I think he is closed over the weekend, but his trucks are all outdoors to peek at.

I have never been to Uwharrie or even heard about it before joining this forum but I figure that I should go, Rover or not. It sounds like a good time.

I have driven trucks for my daily drivers for many years now so I think the 3 door configuration makes sense. I could continue to haul metalwork in it or put bench seats in the rear to move some people around. I also love the idea of soft top or open top.

I haven't actually driven this one yet. I should get down there today and do that.

Thanks for posting those pics. Very configurable. That just look like fun to me

Warning! If you go to uwharrie you will have passed the point of no return. I love that event, the people, the camp ground and the venue are all great. Look Dale up he's one of the long time club officers.
Another thing to keep in mind is the utility you gain with a full length roof rack which you could fit to that truck.

Here's a shot someone took of my truck last weekend-
