THE GOOD

Nice solid, tight truck, reliable daily driver
Made upgrades without radically departing from stock appearance
Have 2 brand new SP Landrover galvanized steel front doors and all new internal pieces, latches and door handles. Requires assembly and paint.
Have 1 SP Land Rover rear-most door (conventional aluminum over steel frame) that needs to be painted and installed with the rear wiper motor parts and latch swapped over.
Have new Mud center console for dash, did not install it so you can decide how to configure switches and radios. For example ARB locking diff wire harness is through firewall but switches have not been installed.
Lots of other spare new and used parts, including used switches, radiator, water pump that were working but just old and due for a swap.
Engine runs well, had pre-purchase check - compression all 140-145 and no oil/coolant contamination.
Entire spare 3.5 engine with 90,000 miles included with purchase. Engine running strong when removed from MOD 110 for an engine upgrade. Can connect you with previous owner (Ed at Steadfast)

THE BAD

Y-pipe in exhaust system should be replaced at some point - bad repair job
I am selling this nice rig
Rear main seal in V-8 leaks oil (just like my disco II and RRC do)
Middle doors are completely functional but will need new bottom channels eventually - they were repaired with body putty before I bought it and I have not done a thing to them except add the newest version of weather seals.
I never got around to installing the rear seat belts (middle seats) but I have the belt kits.
Rear mud flaps are both genuine but they donít match
Corrosion - They ALL have some. Whether steel or aluminum I have abated the corrosion I came across and Iíve crawled all over this vehicle and looked behind just about everything at this point. On aluminum parts I treated it the way aircraft aluminum is treated, used acid to clean and etch, then alodined, then repainted. The chassis had surface rust which was removed with sandblast, then painted with cold zinc galvanize and then black paint. The body was not removed from the chassis for sandblasting so its not perfect. I patch-welded the forward left outrigger. No other frame repairs necessary. Bulkhead around air inlet and foot wells had the rusted steel removed and replaced with new steel including YRM zinc treated steel where possible then primed and painted. Front floors are new as well. There is some corrosion inside the bulkhead in the upper corners. Accessible parts have been removed/replaced - other areas have been treated with rust converter and repainted.

MORE INFORMATION

Life-situation makes selling my 110/Defender the right decision as hard as that is to do. If you are seriously considering a 110/Defender and are interested in one where 90% of the typical things that you have to do to any 1980ís Defender are already done, than we should talk and see if this one is right for you. My approach was to work my way through the vehicle taking things out and apart, cleaning and repainting and putting it back together mostly stock and as good or better than new. I was slow and methodical and assumed Iíd be keeping the truck for a long time. So for example the rear seats came out, were completely dismantled, sanded and epoxy primed and repainted with 2K paint and reassembled using stainless steel wherever I could unless it interfered with function (stayed with grade 8 steel for structural components). I would say the truck is ready for the last major update and thatís deciding whether to upgrade the V-8 or go to diesel. The LT-85 tranny and transfer case work fine. There is a little whine in 5th gear which Ashcroft and others tells me is normal for that box with 137,000 miles - but I would be thinking of a fresher tranny long-term when you do an engine upgrade. The heater works well, in fact virtually everything works as it should.

The Defender is in Alaska but can be moved to the L48 for less than importing one (one youíve never seen and its impractical to go see) from England, and you can have fun getting this truck down to the L48 too, whether you drive or put it on the Alaska ferry with you and take a 3-day sail to Seattle and offload there. It has a clear Alaska title.

Iíve uploaded quite a few photos on Google Drive and you can use this link to view them here:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?...FE&usp=sharing.

If you are serious after looking at the photos and considering the price (below) I am willing to take as much time and be completely transparent about this vehicle and the work Iíve done to insure it gets a good home with someone who will take care of it, take it the last leg, and be satisfied with the truck after buying it.
If you are looking for a Jeep or a Toyota, this is neither.

THE PRICE

I am looking for $32,000 OBO. I have about $41k invested which includes more than $11,000 in parts, $575 paint and $4,200 in professional labor invested - much of the labor went into the axle rebuilds/upgrades and the disc brake conversion. I have receipts for all of the parts, paint and work. This does not include hundreds of hours of my time in the shop doing the bulk of the work, which of course I donít expect to be paid for. Itís why I own Land Rovers. Iíve loved just about every hour of it.( a few not so much-electrical). Even so there is still some work to do - getting the new front/rear doors ready to install, and deciding whether to put in a fresh (larger) V-8 and tranny or go the 200 or 300Tdi route, or go with the 1.2 ratio transfer case mod (from 1.4). Install the Mud console and get that all set up with radios and switches the way you want it. Or start getting it ready for long weekend camping trips. There is of course no reason why you couldnít just drive it for the next few years and do very little to it either.

Awesome RIG!

Ed Angel and crew build strong Rigs. in my opinion this Rig is a tremendous value. why buy an overpriced NAS 90 when you could get a custom 110 that has been sorted out and is ready to go! al the hard work has been done.........

GLWTS, if this were for sale last year, I would have bought it, somebody is going to get a great deal.

I know seems counter intuitive

Yup, seems strange no one is offering and the price goes up. Listing this in a few other places with more directed exposure and knowledgeable sellers are telling me its under-priced. Time will tell. Just wanted the listing price to be consistent everywhere.

Thanks for looking though
