Current prices on 200tdi 110?

Hello everyone - not a frequent visitor to these pages, but have come now and again for a little advice over the years, and was hoping someone might have a little more today.
I have been, for the last two years, the proud owner of an imported 1983 Defender 110 CSW 200tdi. Obviously, with a 200tdi in it, it's either not really 1983, or had an engine swap - I suspect the former, but I chose/choose to turn a blind eye. Anyway, I still love this car, but I have a wife and 10 month old kid now, so I have an increasingly tough time justifying keeping it, as we only really want to have one "all purpose" vehicle. Anyway, I'm shopping for a pickup truck with better tow capacity, and have been tentatively taking offers on the sale of my 110. Trouble is, I haven't really looked around in the US for these trucks, and I don't know what they're going for these days. Googling it I see prices ranging from $15,000 to $100,000 for imports, so there doesn't appear to be an easy basis for comparison. It's a little worse because I'm living in Hawaii right now (brought it over from CA) and there aren't a ton of rover fans here on Big Island, so I'm likely going to be selling it as your average used SUV.
Basics on the truck are these: It's not in mint shape, but pretty good, 130,000K miles on it (99,000 when I got it). Some slight corrosion to front footwells, starting to see some rust to the passenger side bulkhead and b-pillars on both sides, but the frame is in good shape. The original owner swapped the rear axle out for discs, but as far as I can tell, that, and a repair to the rear cross member are the only major changes/repairs. I put a new headliner in it, new suspension all around, new belts (including timing at 120K), thermostat, starter, clutch, front brake calipers (ones on it were rusted pretty bad when I got it), new doors and hood (later model year doors - again, old ones were corroded when I got it), and installed a stereo. It does not have AC. It runs beautifully, and gets around 25mpg. Going cross island, it cruises comfortably at 70, and I've taken it faster. Anyway, any advice on what the minimum I should take for it is? I'm choking on some of the offers I've gotten, and have considered shipping it back to the mainland to try and sell it there... But then I starting thinking maybe it just plain isn't worth that much since early 80's imports have become easier to find. Anyway, thanks for reading, and happy rovering.

Good way to start is what did you pay for it?

couldn't hurt to list it and ask for buyer-paid shipping to the mainland.

sounds like a nice truck, pics?

Thanks - it is a nice truck, and I'm sorry to see it go - it's been a blast. To be honest, I'm not sure how much I've got into it thus far... I'm kind of scared to add it all up, though I'm sure anyone who's imported, and then restored one can commiserate. The original purchase price was only around $10k - I bought it off ebay from a UK dealer who got no other bids on Christmas day. I'll try and post a picture - when I put up my original post it wouldn't let me... let's see if I have any better luck this time....

I am looking at buying one what are you asking? I have been looking at one and currently fixing to commit to it but in about 10 days I will have locked it in. How much rust and where and how much might it cost to ship to California import? I live in Az so its not to far to travel.

Looks like a nice truck. Has a td5 rear door which is a huge plus. I think with some detailed shots it should be worth decent moeny. The only issue is some wont want to pay for right hand drive. Otherwise it looks like a good well maintained truck

Eric, that was the truck i shipped for you when that US RI screwed you over? as i recall it had new doors. amd was a good allrounder, I'd suggest its worth $20,000 to $25,000, but dont take less than 20k.
