Nice truck.

You obviously have us confused with a different demographic and market.

There are things I like about it. Mostly the color...and granted it wasn't done up like this one, but...not to muck up your FS thread...

I thought the 110 I sold last year was "No. 1 of 1".

LOL! GLWS.

Welcome, indeed. This is one fine looking 90.

Although many of us would like to believe otherwise, the reality is that this is market-correct pricing for a nut-and-bolt restoration. Sorry, but it's true. There was a day when $27,900 bought you a brand new NAS 90. Then there was a day when $80k bought you a fully refurbished Defender. Not true anymore. That was a while ago. This is because the parts aren't available, resulting in significant labor costs. It's true! I can no longer buy NOS lines for my power steering in a '91 200tdi. Nor can I get a heater blower. Mind you, these are necessities, not frivolities.

Lots of people on this forum are self-sufficient. I try to be one of them. Then I run into an issue and am faced with the reality of needing assistance. Fortunately, I live in Mecca (Rovers North and Mike Hopwood are in my same county, meaning I have what I regard as THE source for parts and THE person I consider the most knowledgeable individual in the Defender community).

I sincerely hope you find success in your business and join the short list of respected restoration shops. It'll take time and perhaps a few mistakes along the way, but there's definitely a market for good quality, first-time-around repair facilities.

I know Lee. He is a stand up guy who is VERY meticulous. This build is better than new, but to the earlier post, will require the right buyer.

Frank is also correct. This is where pricing is going for a full nut and bolt restoration.

I love the color, you said it was Aries Blue, but it looks like Marine Blue. Is it just the pictures?

I did make a mistake in the color description.The paint code is LVB Tasman Blue. This is the original color code on the Vin tag.

You have the CARB sticker with it?

Is this the 2.25 petrol motor?

Hi
This is a 2.5 petrol. I dont have the carb sticker yet as I am waiting to see which state the new owner is located in. Can install a 200TDI if the new owner wants. The original engine will be created and sent with the vehicle.

2.5 petrol would require smog. You can't get a carb/bar sticker for an engine never sold in the US market. What's the deal here?
