1986 Land Rover Defender 110 pickup 115,000 miles $18,500

This is a nice original 115,000 mile 1986 Land Rover 110 with no rust issues or mechanical issues.

Watch the video:


Body
The body color is Trident green, itís one of those colors that really looks right on a Rover. The original paint was meticulously compounded and waxed to bring out a nice luster. The old faded union jack stickers and dings and scratches give the Rover a very authentic character. It was not repainted a modern color and dressed up for resale like many Rovers for sale on ebay, it is just a nice, original, honest Rover that has obviously been greatly cared for through the years by its past owners. The paint is mostly original, we repainted the inside of the bed and the top. The windshield gasket is new, the vent flap gaskets were updated to the newer style ones. The Rover does not have any body filler or improper repairs. The roof has dents in it and has had a crack welded. Both doors had rot on the bottom steel channel, we cut out the channel and welded in a new galvanized one. Luckily the aluminum door skins were free of any corrosion. The bulkhead is the original and in great shape, there was one small rust hole in the driver side floor that we repaired by cutting out the rust, inletting a new piece of steel and welding it in.

Engine
The engine is the original 2.5 liter 4 cylinder that runs great. The 2.5 liter gas engine shares essentially the same block and bottom end as the 2.5 diesel, it's a fairly robust engine. The advantage of the 2.5 gas over the 2.5 diesel is the gas engine has more power and is quieter making highway driving a little more bearable. The valves have recently been adjusted. A compression test revealed even compression: 170 180 175 175. The motor starts right up and does not smoke or leak oil. The starter has been recently replaced.

Transmission and Transfer Case
The LT77 5 speed manual transmission shifts nice and tight. There are no noticeable syncro or output shaft wear, there are no clunks when shifting. The transfer case is an lt230 with a 1.6:1 ratio. Hi, Low and diff lock all shift smoothly and work great. The transmission and transfer case have recently had their oil changed. The clutch engages smoothly with no slipping.

Axles and suspension
The rear axle is a Salisbury, a British version of the Dana 60. These Rover 110s are 1 ton trucks so the drivetrain and suspension is designed for severe use. Both axles have had their gear oil changed. The rubber bushings are in great shape, the suspension is tight.

Frame
The Rover has its original frame that has not had any improper, shoddy repairs, it has the VIN number stamped in it matching the VIN on the body. The rear crossmember had minor rust that we repaired. The frame has surface rust but no rot or heavy scale, all outriggers are original and rust free. The frame has not been painted or waxoyled so there are no hidden issues.

Interior
The interior is in great shape for its age. The plastic dash cowl support has been replaced, the front seats have had new foam and upholstery. There is no headliner.

Steering
The Rover has manual steering, it is tight with no play, the Rover tracks nice and straight down the road.

Brakes
The Rover stops great, it has disc brakes on the front and drums on the rear.

Electrical
Unlike most Rovers of this vintage, everthing electrical works as it should. The wiring is in great shape, there is absolutely no shoddy wiring repairs, splices or any other wiring other than what came from the factory. I emphasize this because early Rovers have a reputation for faulty wiring and many have had a lot of home made repairs that can be nothing but constant headaches, that is not the case with this one. The headlights, turn signals, reverse lights, wipers, horn, heater, dash lights, cigarette lighter, clock, gauges all work perfectly. All the indicator lights on the dash for 4x4, high beams, etc. all work perfectly.

Fuel System
The fuel system is in great shape with no leaks or shoddy repairs

Tires and Wheels
The Rover has itís original steel wheels with Avon Rangemaster tires and matching spare. It also has the original jack and lug wrench stored behind the seats.

Optional Work
We can convert the Rover to a full soft top and add jump seats and seat belts in the back if you need to carry additional passengers.

GLWS - Great looking Trident green PU. Whats up with the British 7th armoured division, North Africa 1942 plaque - was that on the left door? I imagine there is a cool story there

I found it when I removed the chequer plate on the fender it was used to plug a hole where a snorkel was once fitted. I guess they didn't have a less historically interesting piece of sheet metal to patch the hole with.

Nice 110 and I think a fair price for that spec and level of resto. Would have preferred the pickup config though. Not really in the market right now... just a tire kicker. Anyway, GLWS!

The only thing I would change would be the winch for a larger capacity one.
But all in all, this could be the one.
