Enthusiasts '86 LHD Tithonus for sale 57k miles

Why am I selling, well I worked in the oil industry and was made redundant a while ago so as an enthusiast I bought a couple of LHD Tithonus vehicles to work on as a hobby to pass the time constructively then sell on.

On this one I've gone end to end, sorting out a lot of minor issues and in doing so I've put lots of new items on it, which are either Genuine parts or OEM, such as new battery, oil cooler, wiper motor and wheel boxes, heater motor switch, instrument panel, clutch slave cylinder, alternator, oil cooler, WMIK grill, black head lamp bezels, TDi steering wheel, water pump and viscous coupling, VDO gauges/sensors and Wolf bumperettes. I've also replaced the vent seals and windscreen seal.

It starts after a short turn over period and doesn't produce smoke when at idle or when driven.

I've changed the engine oil and filter, as well as the air filter. I've also changed the timing belt and tensioner so it's good for another 6 years or 60,000 miles.

There are no known faults on the truck and it drives strong sitting on the freeway at 65mph no problem although it has the usual minor oil weeps from the transmission.

It was legally imported by me and is taxed and titled here in Texas.

It would be ideal as an entry level vehicle, to build out into whatever you want to as it's a solid vehicle to start with and that is very important going forward.

As I have put a lot time and parts into it I would need around $23,000 ONO, but for that it's a lot of truck and one which will be reliable and as such should not need any attention for a good while.

If you need more photos just ask and for those who know me yes my Tithonus 300TDi will also be on sale shortly as a very reluctant sale.


Thanks for looking

Cheers

Having seen Fraser's RHD 300Tdi in person I can tell you his trucks are locked on and well sorted out and the Tithonus is a clean truck to begin with so this should make someone a great truck, GLWTS!

Couldn't agree more.

Stateside and a known runner goes a long way.
