My client bought it on eBay at the last second (kind of an impulse thing) and I went to look at it today to verify the condition. The seller has been easy to work with. He has owned this 110 for a long time.

I spent about 2 hours with it today. I am confident in my description.

That is how they usually are. My experience with NAS 110s (three personally, and a few others I have seen) is that is how they end up with rusted bulkheads, a rusted rear crossmember, and rusted sills/t-pieces. The frame rails on some really rusty trucks were fine (ask the people I have sent the old frames too!).

Bulkheads, sills, and rear crossmembers are the biggest rust issues. I have never seen an entirely rust free NAS 110 bulkhead (I shucked out a total of $5k to get the closest I have seen (the little triangle has some rust on the heater box side) with a full dash and harness and having it stripped and galvanized by Trevor). The cappings, lower cage supports, and seat box steel. My NAS 110 has a new galvanized frame, the aforementioned galvy bulkhead should be done soon, new galvanized T-pieces, new galvanized cappings, and a new galvanized battery box. A bunch of other galvanized stuff too.

Surface rust on the axles, sure (not a big deal unless it is really bad), but you normally do not see frame rail rust until the frame fails behind the transmission crossmember and crap starts to pile up in there and rust from the inside out or if the truck was submerged in mud and the inside of the rails not cleaned out.

There is really no reason that the vast majority of "rusty" frames cannot be repaired, galvanized and live on. I ended up buying a new frame, but only because it was available and I wanted to avoid the repair hastle. I will repair and galvanize the stock frame on my D90 though.

to your point keith, it seems like everything behind the front axle is subject to destruction when salty NE road and beach travel is concerned. THat shit just sticks to the frame and never leaves. case in point, I've seen what otherwise looks like a pretty tight/tidy frame, only to see huge corrosion behind the mounting surfaces or between the mounting surfaces of the middle crossmember.

It seems to me that the leaking oil in a Rover serves one purpose.....to keep the front frame area well-oiled and protected!!!

Adam your client appeared to love the truck enough to put it right back on the market for $85,000.

HAHAHA

Went for $45,000 on eBay last time.

326/500 SALDH1288PA920796

1993 LAND ROVER DEFENDER NAS 110 - $85000 (los angeles)

odometer: 85000

This is the one you've all been looking for. #326 of 500 1993 Defender 110 NAS built for North America and street legal. 84k miles with the engine rebuilt recently. She is virtually rust free on all the major components (cross member, engine, door sills, firewalls, chassis, fuel tank) and has been recently repaired by British Car Service in Inglewood who only does Defenders. V8 engine purrs perfectly and turns on rapidly on first try. Here is all the service done on her recently:

Oil cooler lines replaced (this is a crucial repair)
New rear brakes
Hood cable replaced
New running boards installed
New shock absorbers and swaybar links front and rear
Rebuilt/New engine
New radiator
New power steering box
Front axle rebuild including swivel pins
New transfer box
New clutch master cyl
New transmission
New clutch

This 110 has been driven just 10,000 miles in 10 years and has had
about $35k of service work done in the process. The entire
drivetrain, engine, transmission, and transfer box, is new. The new
engine has just 5000 miles on it.

There are almost a dozen other small service records mixed in with
those big ticket ones... this has been a very well serviced truck.
