For sale or trade *IN EUROPE*

Hello all,
I've owned this truck for about 18 months and have been driving it for the last year. Bottom line is that I love the truck, but after driving the 110 CSW for a year, I've decided that my needs are better met with an Ex-MOD 110. I use the vehicle as a daily driver and hunting vehicle now, but when I am back in the US, it will strictly be a weekend fun trail, camping, and hunting vehicle. Based on my experience, a three door Ex MOD will be a better fit for me.

The truck is located in Germany. Ideally, I'd like to find a trade or buyer in Europe. Understanding that we are less than 6 months from this truck being 25 years old, I'm willing to work with a buyer on logisitics. I have not worked with or spoken with Uncle Douglas about this truck, but based upon his reputation and relatioinships in this community I would strongly recommend using his services.

Price - I'm a bit uncertain. I have quite a bit into the truck, and I continue, like all Defenders this age, to put money into it. Ideally, I'd like to get $25,000. I'm open to your educated and experienced opinions.

Trade - I'd like a 1990 or earlier Ex MOD, LHD. The cleaner the better. Obviously, in any sort of trade, I'd like a trade plus cash.

I know some of you may think I am crazy for wanting a 2.5N/A over the 200tdi.

Here are the details:
- RHD 1990 110 CSW
- Original 200tdi, just over 115,000 miles
- First registered 5 December 1990 - I have not retrieved the build date. Presumably the truck was built between September 1990 and it's first registration date.
- Original, matching S/Ns.
Condition of the vehicle:
The good -
- Relatively low mileage completely original 200tdi. (speaks for itself)
- New Exmoor moorland trim interior - I selected this pattern as it 1) looks good, and 2) is an original LR fabric.
Before I bought it, it had had a new turbocharger. I had the following work done by Fraser Barsby (Rugged Guide) at about 108,000 miles:
- fully serviced (oils, belts, etc)
- new radiator, new water pump
- full timing belt service (belt, tensioner, gaskets, etc)
- new cappings on both sides
- replaced the c pillars (behind rear doors)
- Replaced rear left quarter panel
- all new lights
- replaced the center crossmember underneath the rear passenger seats
- replaced all five doors with new doors
- all new brakes and rotors
- all new stock LR springs
- 4 new Koni heavy track shock absorbers
- all new shock turrets
- Repaired both foot wells and upper corners of bulkhead
- patched and repaired parts of chassis
- new power steering drop arm
- new rear link bushes
- new track rod ends
- new master light switch
- completely new Exmoor trim Moorland interior seats
- Exmoor trim front matting system
- Interior painted in stone chip and RAL 7003 (Moss Grey)
- Exterior painted in RAL 7003 (Moss grey)
- New black diamond plating on the fenders, sills and rear door quarter panel
- Exmoor trim heated seats
- Heated front windscreen
- New center console
- all new rear seatbelts
- MUD UK dash console
- MUD UK rear door panel
- roof liner recovered in black
- five new 16 inch WOLF rims
- five new Cooper S/T Maxx tires in 235/85-16


At about 111,000 miles it had a new fuel tank from Nakatanenga, it also had new front and rear Nakatanenga prop shafts.

As is befitting the Lucas wiring, I had a short in the headlight wiring. The headlight wiring has been completely redone by Nakatanenga and their auto electrician. When they repaired and replaced the wiring I had them wire up the circuit with auxiliary drive lights that meet EU safety requirements (operated with the high beams). At present, there are no auxiliary lights fitted, just the wiring.

The bad:

1) Its an original chassis RHD British spec vehicle. Judging from the range of vehicles sold on the forum, I'd give the chassis a 5 or 6 out of 10. It's solid, but it is showing its age. It's been patched in places, and I believe the rear cross member was replaced at some point prior to my purchase. Peter Hochsieder (Nakatanenga) believes that well looked after (cleaned and treated before winter again) the chassis reasonably has another 10 years of useable life. It's definitely not the best for its age.

2) The LT230 transfer box has a very slow drip after driving and bringing up to operating temperature. I think its old seals and a clogged breather pipe, but I have not checked it yet. It's a very slow leak.

3) While the C pillars were replaced by Rugged Guide, the sill rails and bulkhead should also have been. Again, they are solid, but not pretty. The Bulkhead was repaired when the vehicle was worked on, but it's showing its age. It's a good candidate for a galvanized bulkhead and frame.

Attached are a few photo's from when it was first picked up (June 2014).

I'll take some more photos of the truck and post up later today.

Located an hour ish or more north of Mildenhall. You can get your LHD N/A here for a good price. You'll regret not taking that 200 TDI back though!

Thanks for the info. I'm tracking Witham's. The 200Tdi is pretty awesome - I just want the utillity of a three door Ex-MoD more. I guess I'm willing to live with the lower HP and torque as a consequence.

Still for sale. Will entertain offers. First registration was December 1990 - manufacture obviously between SEP and first registration.
