Totally agree Expedition Portal is a good place to sell this truck. The only thing I can think of is the color may be putting people off. In white and selling on one of the expedition sites I can't see why $59K wouldn't be a bargain for a truck like this.
Keep us updated on the future of this truck it should be interesting.

Derek, Brian,
Thx for the info. Nice website, never heard of it and sure I will use it in the future.
I decided not to sell it now. Will turn it into a crew cab, have it painted in a different color and use the camper box for a very cool new project.

The crew cab will come up for sale here.

I love this one. A wrap is probably $1500 or so that fixes the color issue.

Johan,

whatever you decide, GLWS.

If any of the Overland People heard about your plan, They would probably do what they did to Clint Eastwood in Hang Em High.. You seen the movie?

But what the hell, like you said, life is short and things happen for a reason. Do what your heart desires this time..

Here's one thing I've learned over time... exceptional people are exceptional at many things.

Johan has established himself on this board as a straight-up guy that sources above-par Defenders and offers them at prices that enthusiasts can afford. Rather than cover up a short-coming, he points them out. Rather than cut a corner, he seems to take it up a notch (i.e. "take off Puma seats installed").

So... when he says he has something cool planned for the box, I take him at his word. Looking forward to learning what it is - in good time, of course. He holds his cards close.

What I really am looking forward to, though, is the 130 crew cab. My unicorn.

It's hard enough to convince myself that two doors is enough (on my HCPU) without you all posting this pornographic content...

1987 127 Now Crew Cab

I am getting a lot of PM's about this one, so time for an update, although the car is not ready yet.


- body painted in Corris grey , roof, wintops and wheel arches in Santorini black. Both metallic and original Land Rover colors as used on for instance the Autobiography version of the Defender.
- a lot of body panels are painted before assembly, so also the interior, inside of the doors, floor, seatbase, foot wells are all Corris grey.
- New Puma front doors and Puma rear doors (not new but very good condition).
- Puma front seats and rear seats, 40/60. XS version so partly leather
- New Boost wheels with new tires
- New door rubbers all around.
- Paint job is really professional, as it should, I paid more then $ 8 K for it... No overspray, painted with the windscreen taken out, many parts disassembled also the load bed. So between the cab and the load bed it also has the Corris grey, although nobody well ever see this.
- New LED lights
- New Exmoor carpets
- New cuby box
- new head liner with radio and speakers


About the car itself:
- exceptional good frame, no rust, no welding
- low miles
- 300Tdi and R380 installed after import.
- more details in previous listings


Finishing now the last details, like connecting all the electrics, finishing the interior and so. Car will be ready in October, not that it is so much work, just don't have the time to work on it in the next 5 weeks.


Price... I haven't figured out all the cost yet but it is not going to be cheap.
