1985 Defender 110 Tithonus Soft Top RHD - $14,000
Hello Defender Source,
I bought this truck from the original US importer/owner and DSource member in August, 2016 and immediately drove it 650 miles home to North Carolina. The truck drove great on I-95, despite the reputation of the 2.5, doing an honest 63-64mph with acceptable performance for merging. Since getting it home, it's served as a weekend car and part-time commuter through all 4 seasons. It's efficient and fun to drive and I've absolutely loved my time with it.
The car has treated me well, with a dead (and replaced) headlamp being the only hiccup in my ownership. Mechanically the truck is quite sound and I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross-country again. Cosmetically, there is definitely some paint "patina," though I find it less noticeable in person than in pictures. I've listed some specs and a link to pictures below.

2.5 NA Diesel
All paperwork since MOD release
Clutch replaced and flywheel resurfaced in Nov '15 at ~164,000 km

$14,000 / obo
Hopefully my price reflects a desire to sell quickly, as I'm only listing the Tithonus due to a re-prioritizing of hobbies (planning to buy an airplane). The quicker/easier the sale, the bigger "obo" price drop I'll consider.

Posted to add: All 8 rear jump seats with seat belts are installed. No radio box/comm racks or other clutter in the rear loadspace. Rifle racks and fire extinguisher mount removed from interior, but I still have them should a buyer want.
