110 300tdi

Sadly, life is dictating that the 110 needs to go on to its next owner. I need something that works better for transporting our kid and I just simply don't have the time to continue building this truck up. Plus, the desire to put an addition on the house is trumping the desire for pricey toys.

1983 110 300tdi/R380/LT230Q.

The truck was functionally restored in the UK before it came over here last year, it's RHD. It has a new bulkhead, new outriggers and a new rear crossmember. There's the slightest surface rust on the doors, but the truck is very, very clean. It also received new exmoor trakker seats and a new station wagon rear door in the UK.

Since I've gotten it I've installed a D2 1.2 LT230Q box which allows the truck to drive comfortably on the highway. At the same time I swapped over to a d2 front driveshaft and d2 parking brake. The radiator was in bad shape when I got it, it's now got a new, wider radiator, external oil cooler and full-width intercooler. The truck is fast, reliable, runs cool and still doesn't have the fueling turned up.

Now for the accessories:
Safari Gard front bumper
3x hella 4000s
Warn 10k winch with synthetic line
2" of lift, RTE front, Britpart rears, Koni shocks
238 GY MTs that are very recent on black steelies
NAS steering wheel
NAS Matte wheel arches
VDO guages: tach, volt, water temp, oil pressure
Tuffy center console
Hella Horns
Diamond Plate fender and hood
New Alpine Ipod player, New speakers in front door
Conversion to NAS front door cards
Exmoor waterproof covers
ARB fridge mounted in between rear seats
Roveraccessories rear hitch
Armored rear diff cover
Sliders partially complete
Trailer wiring harness
Fresh exhaust
Rear Ladder
Thule cross-bars
Updated rear side windows
5bar rear door panel with folding table, fire extinguisher, light and (all important) bottle opener.

What it needs:
The sliders are half built
The front door latches need to be installed
2 guages need to be hooked up
right rear hub is weeping

The truck has EPA and DOT releases and is registered as an antique in VA.

Price: I'm not foolish enough to think that I'd ever get what I have into this truck out of it. I'd like to see $26,500 out of the truck, but I'm interested in a portion of that being in the form of a built D2/D1/P38, maybe even an NAS SW. I'll entertain all reasonable suggestions. I'm not interested in parting the truck out. Located in Northen Virginia.

Looks good, any chance of more photos...inside and out. How many miles do you think you have on the 300tdi? If it has ac, how is it holding up? Who did the work in the UK and who did the rest of the work over here? Thanks, Merle

Working on resizing photos now.

Odometer has 110K on it, can't vouch for the motor. No AC. Work was done by a tech in the UK as far as I remember. The work is really very well done, certainly not thrown together. The story was that the tech built it for himself and then sold it to buy a company. Rest of the work here was done by myself, Ray Gerber and a few others such as Dave Bobek have pitched in, save the radiator which was sourced from Jim Pendleton.

Well, all I did was help remove the transfer case. Since it is the closest 300tdi truck to me I have spent some time crawling around under it looking at the installation of the drivetrain. Between that and the t-case work, and the requisite check-out when Tony first got it, it is a really nice looking and solid truck. I haven't driven it.

I'm crying at work now...
Don't...want...to...start...over...again.

In all seriousness, it's a hell of a good truck. It pulls like a freight train and I can attest with frostbite and heat stroke that she's had a lot of attention.
BTW, love the pic with my truck in the background broke down in your driveway. Strong.

The story on the engine was that it was a 15k mile reman unit. This truck is very, very, clean and tight.

Couldn't do the rally... and very bummed about that. Will probably be stretching its legs next week, tho.
I can't believe you're unloading the 110. Got your eye on a nice minivan? heh.heh.

In a sense, will likely wind up with a d1 or d2 to stay in the mix, go to MAR, get up to the range, etc. In the interim get the addition on the house. These adult decisions suck.

I vote we start a raffle for the truck. All we need to do is sell 260 tickets at $100 each. I'm in for 4.
