Nice. Looks very much like some from a UK eBay dealer. Need the resident LR savant to confirm.

But how does a new chassis double/almost triple price? I know they aren't cheap but....

yeah I'd say conservatively it would raise it maybe 10-15k tops?

Reply to: jn9bv-3154609608@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

1985 Land Rover Defender 110 with 200 TDI, LT77 Transmission. 130 K on the Transmission but only a 106K on the engine. New Paint job, skid plate with Warn 9000 winch, Roof rack and rear ladder, sunroof, new rear interior door paneling, new floor matting, new center cubby, new door hinges but fasteners need painting, new BfGoodrich All-terrain Tires, rebuilt radiator and starter. Fitted with a safari snorkel and fog lights front and rear. Here is what she needs, Small rust bubbles under wind shield otherwise the bulkhead is solid . The engine is solid but is original so will need updating as things where out. The chassis is original so its rusty, its got some years left in it but if you you swap it for a galvanized one and you got a $50,000 to $70,000 truck. Other than that it is a solid vehicle and fun to drive.

It looks so nice in the pics - 14.9GBP sounds too good to be true

Did you just reverse convert it from USD to a foreign currency?

That was on eBay early this year IIRC. Those are the same pictures... with the Mass tags!

I'm forced to acknowledge Horsey's "savantness" here.

This truck was imported by a guy near me (Plymouth, MA). He saw me driving my 110 after he flipped this (for zero profit BTW) and introduced himself. He said he knew very little about Defenders and always wanted one. He figured he could import it, drive it and flip it for a profit and buy a better one. Good plan, right?
Then (as it often does) reality sets in.

Anyway, he sold it via eBay back in like November 2011 (roughly). The pictures in the current CL ad are from the original ad (I can see the Plymouth waterfront in the back round area, so at a minimum, the seller needs to be a little more current with photos.

I never saw the truck in person, but if it was anything decent, the guy I met would have kept it for sure.

Another impulse decision gone wrong without a PPI I guess?


***Also, why is the air filter in that spot for a 200Tdi? My 200Tdi in my other truck (RHD) had it over the other side. Is this a disco Tdi? not that it matters really, just curous.


PPS - ECR can put a SD NAS-type safari cage on there and make it look like a NAS for a cool $15k if you wanted and even then ....and with a new chassis it's not a $70,000 truck! As it sits, this thing is all of $16-$18k if the mechanicals are good.

Looks good on the outside but the engine worries me. Air cleaner is not factory position and actually looks like a 300 filter turned sideways? Engine bay looks tady and not nearly as clean as the rest of the truck. A galvy frame is less than 3K here in the States plus install of course.

Yes, that's a disco 200Tdi, and air filter. The fan cowl is also missing.
