Do you have a picture of the donor vehicle?

Was it an LE?

I think it was a soft top. But does it really matter at this point?

Only pics I have of the 94 NAS 110 conversion are at the beginning of that slide show video I made. It was a yellow ST.

There's a pic of the white 97 NAS st I started with at the beginning of the slide show video I made for it.

what of the donor vehicle remains? Is it essentially a legal "VIN swap" truck when the restoration is this thorough?

A vin swap is when a guy in the UK take a 2008 Puma 110 and rivets the vin plate off a 1985 110 onto it, then tries to import it into the US. I took a legitimate legal NAS truck and rebuilt it piece by piece with as many of the original parts as were still usable (considering the conversion I was doing) plus a bunch of new parts that i purchased. Plus I documented it with pictures along the way.
I'm not the first come up with this idea. ECR is very reputable and they've been doing it for years.

Ok, well at this point considering the amount of time and money put into this truck I'm giving it away but I'd like to get it sold so I can use the doe for another Defender project. I think you'd be hard pressed to have a shop build this for that (plus you'd have to wait 12-18 mo).

Just to answer a few questions, this truck retains all its original emissions and evap equipment and passed smog check here in Las Vegas. So, registering shouldn't be an issue wherever you live.

$109,900 or make offer

I decided to go back to the original free style alloys. It's actually peppier with the slightly smaller tire diameter. Here's some pics.

Hey...nice tire cover, I just noticed it in the pics! This is the one you picked up from me earlier this summer I'm assuming ....

Truck looks unbelievable by the way, one of the nicest builds I've seen in awhile. Shocked it's still available...

I personally loved the black wheels, but it still looks good with those freestlyles (and would probably sell IMMEDIATELY with some boost wheels!).

Actual cost of restoration

So I had a buyer who was weighing buying my truck vs an unrestored original NAS 110. So I did a few comparison shots. I realize mine is a NAS 97 converted to 110 with a rebuilt title and the other truck in these pics is an original NAS 93 110. I realize that fact alone affects value but just look what you can get for a few thousand more and still have the benefits of a NAS truck (i.e. pass smog/register/insure). Although the 93 is a very nice example of a very original truck (I'm not dissing it, it's worth every bit of $88k), the cost of bringing it up to the level of what I'm selling is gonna cost you A LOT more than the price difference $88k and $109K. Anyone who has taken one of these apart or had restoration work done knows that once you start tearing an old Defender apart, everything is worse than you first thought. What was gonna be $20K worth of work can quickly turn into $60k worth of work. You could avoid all the hassle and just buy mine
Am i allowed to do a sales pitch in my own for sale thread? LOL

$109K or best offer

Sam, I'd choose your blue 110 any day over that other 110 example; no question.


Is this your day job or just a hobby??

I looked at some of your project videos; nice work!

Awesome comparison. I think most of us would choose your version of the 110. I need to stop coming back to this thread. Just makes me want something there is no way I can have. And dreaming about it is starting to get unhealthy! Lol! Good luck with the sale.

This is a beautiful truck and worth every penny. Very impressive restoration. I'd pick it over a 93 110 any day. I read freestyles aren't rated for a 110 though, only boosts and deep dish. Usually I'm not a fan of black wheels, but they looked good on it.

I learn something new everyday. I didn't know boosts had a higher weight rating than freestyles. I assumed all the rover alloy wheels would have the same rating.
