are all defender frames galvanized
do the santana's and other non british makes of defenders have any value
is there a way to enclose a 110 3 door cab without putting a pickup cab on

Lots of rust on those BATUS rovers.

Could be depending on year, condition, price, etc.
No
No
Maybe
Enclose just the cab? You can buy a drop curtain. Search drop curtain
Looks alright for the money, but that chassis coating may be hiding stuff. The 2.25 engine is notoriously underpowered. Depends overall what you intend to use it for. If pulling large boats is your thing, it may not be for you.

A Tithoneus sounds like the option you need

Probably a good suggestion - though I may be biased…

Email me and we can schedule some time for you to come down and drive a few of the trucks we have. We can get you some seat time in a 2.5NA, TD, 200tdi, 300tdi, or Td5 to get a feel for the differences between the various diesel engines and configurations.
