Too good to be true? '84 Defender 110 - not mine

My apologies if someone already posted about this vehicle:

http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...ngId=347829841

It has been for sale for some time, but I couldn't find any old posts about it. Does anyone else find this too good to be true? The price is about right for a restore '84, but I don't know if it's even possible to build an '84 to match a new Defender so well, complete with ABS and other new features.

It's most likely just a brand new truck with a galvanized chassis swapped under it. There are a handful of them running around.

Huh - good point... I didn't even think about swapping a chassis out below a truck. That doesn't sound legal...

The guy had a pair of them for sale. This one is still left. We had a thread or two on them this past summer. Tjfslaughter here had talked to the guy.

Pretty sure I drove that one, the newer defenders with the tdci engine and 6 speed are really sweet.... Regardless of it being titled here I would still be uneasy about it being seized and crushed..

Horrible visual of THIS happening to that Defender:

It's too bad. That's a beautiful truck. I don't think I'd want to be worried about it all the time...

Doesn't stop me from thinking about those Transit vans coming in to replace the E series, that 3.2 diesel, add a six speed from Ashcroft.....
sorry thread drift....

Yup. That engine is from the London Taxi business. It was actually approved for US use.
It popped up on CL again a few days ago. Price dropped a bit.
