Unhappy The early bird gets the worm.

This LHD 83’ Defender 110, that was completely reconditioned by Liveridge 4x4 just a few years ago, recently sold for $20,000. Please tell me there are other deals like this out there.

You always remember the ones that got away….

Dude there are plenty out there. It takes a few misses to get the right one anyway.

There are plenty of trucks out there. Also, plenty of scams. (not saying that this one is)

Nice looking truck, but was it a TDI?
That looks like a really nice truck for $20,000. That may have been fishy. just saying.
I know there are deals out there but I'd love to hear from who bought it.

No scam. I talked to the lady who sold it. She was passionate about Rovers and could go on and on. She had it built to her specifications by Liveridge with a Tdi 200 for 14,000 GBP (also back when the exchange rate was better) and thought a similar build today would be 20,000 GBP. Her husband’s 110, also built by Liveridge, has the TD5. The only caution she had was that the door seals leaked in the rain and the 200Tdi ran louder and rougher than the TD5. She said both were considered normal.

Some guy in California purchased it and it was titled last week. There was an issue locating the VIN, but it was resolved.

why didn't you buy it then, or put down a deposit after you spoke with the nice lady?

Wink

I wasn't the "early bird." It was sold the first day. They are still trying to get the add off AutoTrader. I told her to save the $100 ad fee and call me directly if/when her husband decides to sell.

that's not just a deal, that's a full-on "fire sale"!
that build may not cost a full 20,000GBP today unless a galvy chassis were involved.
County & Defender Centre recely had a fully restored 1985 built to a 2008 XS-Spec w/ full galvy chassis available for 17,500GBP and that was a nut-n-bolt restoration. Still, you're still looking at a minimum of $25,000USD just to get a 110 like that imported.
Maybe because it was an older restoration and they werent' trying to be pigs about the price it was $20,000. Still, the fact that it sold within a day tells you something (they didn't ask enough).

I know you said early bird gets the worm, but if it makes you feel any better I don't know anyone that would drop $20k on a 110 without taking some time to look it over in person or arrange a PPI. Somebody took a risk when the bought that and it appears that risk panned out well.

I don't think I'm out-of-touch or stupidly optimistic, but my 110 I have for sale doesn't look as nice as this one and I wouldn't sell it for less than $18,500. I'd rather keep it, considering the hurdles you go through to find a solid one.

How hard is it to find a mid-80s LHD three-door 110 with a good body and dash?

I don't know about an older restoration, but this truck looks pretty choice. Complete new interior and frame off build only a few years ago (thinking she said three?). Here are a few additonal pictures from the AutoTrader ad. Many pictures of this truck on the Liveridge website.
