97 110 300tdi lhd auto

This one is interesting: not mine

Thought it was this one at first: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...t=Willow+green But it's not

http://www.ebay.com/itm/151259783882

We have had this truck for almost 10 years and the wife decided she wanted me to build her something different so we are going to let the green beast have a new home. Truck was imported through a registered importer by the previous owner. This is a factory 1997 LHD Defender with 300tdi engine. Ebay doesn't recognize the VIN: SALLDHM68VA109087 After buying the truck the following items were done:

-new doors
-rebuilt axles
-conversion to rebuilt automatic transmission and transfer case---with proper interior console
-all new bushing, OME spring and Bilstein shocks.
-full width intercooler added, larger turbo, head rebuilt, aluminum radiator
-second fuel tank added under passenger seat
-carpet removed and linex applied to all areas that were carpeted
-Color change --full repaint to Willow Green
-new door seals and window seals
-second a/c system added under passenger seats
-rear Webasto diesel heater
-new rear cross member and fuel tank
-waxoil applied to frame and inside of doors
-MUD Defender Counsel for mounting the radio in the dash---ipod capable radio
-pyrometer and boost gauges
-ARB front bumper---no winch
-folding side steps
-led park and turn signals
-stainless mounting hardware for doors and roll cage
-tinted windows



Truck originally had about 80,000 miles on it, after the partial restoration and change to the automatic transmission the speedometer was replaced with a new unit and shows the mileage since the restoration which is roughly 59,000 miles. Other features the truck has are:

-rear wiper and defrost
-load adjustable head lights
-sun roof
-a/c front and rear
-seating and seat belts for 9 people
-Snorkel
-full roll cage

This truck will not win any speed races, but will take you places that few vehicles can. I would drive this vehicle anywhere…again not in any hurry, but she has never let us down. The transmission was just serviced and new lines were put to the transmission cooler as one was seeping. New air filter was installed. Currently getting between 20mpg to 24mpg depending on how hard you press the little pedal and will run on biodiesel. Paint is not perfect with a few rock chips and dings here and there, but still has a great shine. Interior dash has a few small cracks but no major imperfection. Has a free and clear title in my name which states it is a 1997 Defender. Truck is being sold AS IS. If you are in California you need to do your own research as to whether this truck can be registered there. This truck will be missed, but it also gives me an excuse to start another project when she is gone….so happy bidding.

Yes this is my truck...actually my wife's daily driver. Wife would like me to build her a new 110 with lift top tent....full roll cage is not well suited for this so decided to start fresh on a new rig for her and let this one find a new home. Not a soccer mom's rig or mall cruiser either, been on trails and we live on an unmaintained road a few miles from town.

I cringe anytime I see one of these trucks sacrificed to the status of mall cruiser with big rims and bolt on plastic body bits. Sort of like taking a military man and putting him in a dress....yes there are guys that like that sort of thing....doesn't make it right.

This is a great truck and on record with DOT as entering the country.....I don't know the specifics...just have a copy of the compliance record. Let me know if you have any specif questions about the truck....still being driven daily till she sells. Thanks

Your wife sounds like she's ready for a 1995 Beluga Black Defender 90 ST.

Unfortunately, only a D110 will keep her happy. And if the wife is not happy......

Simply too many personal vehicles. I enjoy working on strange vehicles and I have a bad habit of them also following me home. Every now and then I try to thin the heard, but as soon as the lights go out they start reproducing like rabbits! The Dodge has a new owner whom I know will enjoy it. Now to find a new home for my wife's D110 so I can have an excuse to start building her another one.

It appears someone took a disliking to my truck and reported the car as incorrect to Ebay which removed my auction. I have a call into EBay to find out how to resolve this, but may not get an answer till Monday. Once I can relist the truck on EBay I am going to do a no reserve auction with a starting price of $45000. This past auction I was getting 10+ emails a day just asking about reserve.... Got kind of old. Thanks Scott

Resolved the issue with Ebay and they are supposedly sending a warning noticed to the person who reported the truck and letting me repost for free. New Auction will be up on Tuesday with the same information as before with the addition of a few features I forgot to include in the original auction. This will be a 7 day auction, no reserve and starting at $45,000.00.
