You assert that 70+% of everything made during those years has the lt95 gear box ? Didn't the lt85/lt230 begin replacing the lt95 behind v8's as a 5spd option in 1984 ?
That's a similar conclusion I came to. I look at defenders for sale in the UK constantly and the 3.5 V8s and even the smaller petrol engines seem to be in short supply compared to the 2.5N/A and 2.5TD for those years.

That's a huge leap of logic, and a less than subtle dig at those over here that are engaged in the sale of Defenders. Interesting comment, especially from one who has sent more than few vehicles meeting that very same description to these shores.

Like most EU vendors your knowledge of the NA LR scene is limited to what your customers ask for and what you see on a few forums.

Nice truck, good luck with the sale. I would get rid of the black roof too, news flash, it gets hot over here...

not much on black roofs, ascetically not my cup of tea, and not very functional when the sun is out. there seems to a trend to silver and black in defenders, i noticed though.

Why would it be any different than an all Black 110?

Or a 90 SW with a black canvas top? And why the heck is everyone focusing on the top color? Bottom line it's a damn nice looking (LHD!) truck with a decent price...if you ask me.

And I - for one - am jealous of that Exmoor interior. Makes me think I need an upgrade on my seats.

The whole truck looks pretty nice, I like the SVX grill, interior and the color combo is sweet. Good luck with the sale!

There seems to be quite a bit of misunderstanding about my words on this forum. Most of the LHD 110 Defenders from 1983 to 1986 ordered for Europe were fitted with a 3.5 V8 engine and had the 4 speed gearbox. It could well be that in the UK there are plenty of 2.25 , 2.5 petrol or diesels to be found, but on the Continent most of the models that sold were fitted with the V8 gas engine.

I was surprised by the question about the hi-lo gearing, never meant to offend anyone... I am pretty sure we see a lot more original 1983-1986 Defenders here than there are in the States.

As for the people who don't like the black roof, colours are a matter of taste. In all honesty I must admit, it might get hot in summer but not only from the black roof, more likely to get hot caused by sitting on top of that gearbox... with some flimsy alloy panelling around it.

But hey, who cares ... you ride in style ...... if you want something more comfortable buy a new Landcruiser or a Lexus...

You did a really nice job on that truck. I like the SVX pulling it on one picture.

Amen Barry, I couldn't agree more - very clean looking rig. Of course, I'm partial to my truck that came from Mike as well : ).

A friend of mine bought a truck from Mike/Riverhouse before and had a positive experience.

EBAY auction ended unsold, highest bid was $ 28,000 with over 3000 hits and over 150 watchers.

Got a cash offer of $ 33,000.

Need a little more though, first offer of $ 35,000 incl ocean freight and clear title will buy the truck.
