Defender 145 CrewCab For Sale

Yes, it's official.

I've listed it on LRX...check it out or pass it along. It'll take a special buyer for this vehicle, so if you know anyone who would like it, or perhaps that person is you...check it out.

I'd post a link to the listing, but you have to search their site.

LRX.com

You can check out the build-up story on my site:

Build up pages.

How about copy and pasting the details here for us along with a price so people dont have to go look for it on LRX.

That is a GREAT idea!

I am selling my hand-built one-of-a-kind Defender 145-inch CrewCab. Price: $65,000 USD

This was built by myself, Timm Cooper and Matthew Jackson over the course of 2 years. It has so much uniqueness and special features that I cannot list them all here.

There is a 2-page story documenting the construction of the vehicle here:

http://www.tawayama.com/gear/crewcab/crewcab.html

This is a rare opportunity for some lucky buyer to own a vehicle that will never be seen anywhere else. It is truly a one-off custom truck, virtually every piece has been hand-built or modified to suit the vehicle. It is has a clean Nevada title, which is where it was registered and licensed.

A brief inventory of the vehicle: Chevy 350ci engine, Advanced Adapters overdrive, SM-465 tranny, on-board air, part-time 4wd LT-230, vented disc brake Salisbury rear w/GBR shafts and ARB, vented disc front w/MD shafts and ARB. RedDot roof-mounted heater/AC, VDO guages, Corbeau front buckets, custom VW van rear bench seat.

Lengthened cab section, rear seats actually have leg-room! Dual-gas tanks, frame lengthened to 145 inch wheelbase, galvanized frame, bulkhead and every single piece of steel on vehicle. ARB bar w/WARN M12000 winch, IPF lights, 5 NATO rims, no tires (you get to choose what you want on 'em).

Safari snorkel w/Donaldson pre-filter, hood-mounted spare and hood black-out paint. Rear cargo box, custom made by ProTech of Vancouver WA, cargo shelving, rear lift hatch, interior lighting, dual batteries, propane tank, ARB fridge (the BIG one), exterior lighting Hella & IPF, the list goes ON AND ON... You cannot describe this vehicle in words. Follow the link for the build-up text and images.

NO TIRE KICKERS! If you want to talk about the truck, please call: 801-254-6648 If you want to talk about how it was titled, don't call. If you want to talk about how you can purchase the vehicle and where I can deliver it to, please DO call. You will not be dissapointed.

I want to find my baby a good home, D-90 source members can appreciate that I think. Finders fee of $500 would be offered. Reasonable discount on price would also be offered to a D-90 Source member.

It sucks to sell it, but it sucks worse to not be using it.

Personally I've always liked your right nut.

Oh, it's one of those decisions that's not easy to arrive at. I'm not doing as many trips as I'd like, the truck really honestly isn't being used for what I built it, and really needs to be used and appreciated.

Now has tires on the Wolf rims (black). Am driving to the Easter Jeep Safari. If anyone's there that wants a closer look, drop me a line. It'll be parked at City Market all day while I'm out on the trails photographing. Getting there Tuesday afternoon, leaving Sat. morning. :D

I just read your write-up documenting the construction of the vehicle. It sounds incredible.

My wife set a moratorium on all vehicle purchases. Then again, I doubt I'd have as much reason to drive it as you do and I'd be selling it w/in a year.

Good luck finding the right buyer.

Hell, Kevin, I'd give both of mine for his truck. It would solve the "you should get clipped" comments AND score me an awesome truck.

BTW, Mike, since we can't call to ask how it was titled, hopefully you're willing to post details here. How is it titled, as a 130" with a valid VIN, as a Series Vehicle or as a "kit" built car?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Javier

Nice truck

Have admired the truck build pages before and would dearly love to brazenly copy your idea of moving the seats back onto a frame to give useful underseat storage. I currently have a 110 crewcab which I have over the past year converted from a 110 van back, in the re-build I installed Discovery II seats both front and rear but this makes the cab feel even more cramped and lacking in storage, hence the thoughts on opening the space bellow the seats for storage. Only one question, where did you move the batteries to?

Thanks,
Mark, UK
