Posted a little while back to ask about prices on my 110 here in Hawaii. Haven't had much luck selling here, so I figured before I turn to Ebay I'd post up here and see if there is any interest. I've had this truck for about 3 years now, and put a lot of work into it, however have the same old story of wife, kids, and being unable to support multiple vehicles, so I'm reluctantly parting with it. Prior recommendations on prices from my last post were 20-25K, so I'm asking 25K or best offer. Details are as follows, and I'm creating a web site with lots of detailed photos, which I'll try and post a link to below.
1983 LR Defender 110 CSW, 200tdi, LT77 5-speed manual
$25,000 or best offer
Vehicle was purchased from a dealer in UK in 1997, brought over in January 1998 when it became legal in the US. At that time it had 99,000 miles. Had one prior owner before ending up in the dealership, and he replaced the rear axle with a salisbury, making it 4-wheel disc brakes. He also did a weld repair to the rear cross member - not sure whether this was to address corrosion or because of an accident, but it's been solid and there's no other damage to the frame or body. I've towed pull trailers up to about 5,000 lbs w/o a problem - it has a NATO hitch to which I've added a US towing electrics in addition to the previous UK towing electrics which are still in place.
Frame is corrosion free, and I have replaced all five doors with new Td5 doors because the old ones had rot to the bases.
Once it got over here I replaced the suspension with genuine LR heavy duty shocks, sway bars, and springs
Repainted in white (color matched to original alpine white)
All new 265/75R AT tires on original steel rims including spare which is rear mounted on rear door Replaced the hood with new, as the old had corroded from a wheel mount
Took out the headliner and had a new one fabricated from a local upholsterer
Replaced the front brake calipers with new lockheeds as originals had corrosion
Replaced all belts (including timing at 120,000 miles), filters, fluids, wiper blades
Have run on AMSOIL, with new filters every 3,000 miles, new oil every 6
New clutch (110,000 miles)
New lights (entire light fixure not just bulb - brake, fog, reverse, signal, running, headlamps)
Dropped gas tank and cleaned tank and fuel lines
Replaced all non-weight bearing hardware (bolts,washers,nuts) including floor plates, hinges, lights, vents w/ stainless
Have all new gaskets for alpine windows and windscreen which will be included in sale
Have water pump and all new hoses (purchased to have on hand) also included
Alpine stereo with Sony Xplod speakers and iPod/iPhone input
All replacement parts were purchased from either John Craddock's or RDS.
Has some corrosion to footwells, easily repaired with a quick weld but I haven't bothered because there are only a few small holes on drivers side. Some bubbling of paint to passenger side bulkhead. Some corrosion to rear crossmember old weld site. Would be more than happy to send pics or answer questions - would arrange RO/RO shipment to California for any buyer, and will personally deliver to docks free of charge.
Currently registered in Hawaii, VIN : SALLDHMH7AA187641, was originally registered in Pennsylvania.
Thanks for your interest
Just put this up, and will be adding pics of engine compartment and undercarriage soon (was in work clothes and couldn't crawl around under it when I took these a couple weeks ago)
