83 110 200tdi

So another work horse for sale... I have an 83 Land Rover 110 vanside with a 200tdi and lt77 with the 1.6 tcase, meaning this thing will pull a house but likes to run about 65 or less due to rpm's. As you can see from the pics, the chassis has had some repairs but is very solid and also has a great bulkhead with no rust issues at all. Doors are in great shape and floors are rust free as well. Exterior is straight with the exception of some minor dings but in true farm fashion it has been brush painted. With a small amount of body work and some fresh paint, this would be a sharp and very solid original 110. Interior is clean with 3 front seats in very good condition but has no rear seats currently and no headliner. The tdi is sweet as a nut and starts right up, transmission shifts well and truck will flat go with the low tcase. Steering box is tight but brakes are a little mushy. It stops straight and without issue but usually the pedals on these are a little firmer. May be low on fluid but haven't checked yet. Odometer is showing 72k which was told to be true although I can't verify, but it is very believable. The other apology for this truck is there is some wine from the drivetrain, I am not sure if its due to the low tcase, or a problem with the parking brake (which doesn't hold), or possibly something within the tcase or transmission. The truck shifts and drives great so I don't think its major but I am full disclosure so didn't want to leave it out. Below is a link to tons of pics, if you have any questions or want more pics please feel free to shoot me an email and I will help however I can.

Price: 13,000 obo

Update from original post. The drivetrain noise has been resolved and this truck now drives absolutely amazing. The noise was from the x eng brake

Me either! It has no apologies aside from the brush paint job. It drives better than $30k trucks...

Nice truck! I would have been all over this if my wife hadn't convinced me to stick to a 5 door. Somebody ought to jump on this one.

I thought RHD would be a deal breaker to me also but I bought a RHD and love it - there is no learning curve to driving it but if you like drive thru's might not be the best choice

I'm trying to convince my buddy to get this

I just back through the drive through window... get some funny looks but it works...

I agree with you... RHD used to be a deal breaker and I had every intention of converting mine... but now that I have it I actually like it more... there is more room on the right side... and being a "larger" person that I am... this is a good thing

I agree, RHD is the bomb! gets more looks, questions and everything. Learning curve is just like you said, easy. I spent a month in Oz and a month in NZ and got super used to it, plus I'm a lefty so shifting with that hand is easier for me. And the blind spots, they're just reversed! We need to come up with a patch/sticker for RHDers!!! Jay, I know you've been doing a lot of this kinda stuff but I think this would be a HIT!!! What ever happened with those tumblers? Chuck, sorry we got on this RHD rant and highjacked your thread a little. Hope you get what you want outta that Rover, sure is a sweet one!!

Agree on the RHD. RHD is way better. LHD in a Defender or Series is always a compromise compared to the original RHD design. RHD has a ton more room for your feet and easier maintenance for certain things. Plus on a non-V8 truck you aren't sitting on top of the hot exhaust pipe. I am also surprised it has not sold.

I thought RHD would be an issue but it has been absolutely natural. However, I would be very apprehensive about owning a RHD 3-door 110 due to the poor visibility out te left of the truck. Merging lanes, checking blind spot, etc seems like it would be impossible. With the 5 door it like looking out a massive window... No actual blind spot.

very true... but that is why you chop the top off and make it a 110 Soft Top

Couldn't agree more - I was really pining for a 110 soft top before just going for the 'practicality' of the 5 door.

Outstanding! Drives great, been driving to work every day at 65mph no issues. Working on cosmetic and rust issues now - prepping the rear crossmember for paint as we speak.

Have you driven one? It's no different than driving anything else, you look at the reflections in the little shiny things on the doors.

Anyhow we are talking about LAND ROVER DEFENDERS here, everyone is looking at you 100% of the time, who cares about the blind spot?
