FS 300TDi Expedition Tithonus $30,500

Well folks the day has finally come due to personal circumstances that I need to sell my Tithonus 300Tdi which Iíve had for the last four years. Itís been my project car that Iíve put lots of parts and sweat equity into mechanically restoring it primarily for long range expeditions which Iíve undertaken to Utah, Colorado and New Mexico from South Eastern Texas.

It currently has around 122,300Km (74,600 miles) on the rot free chassis and running gear. With no more than 20,000 miles on any of the upgrades (exception transmission <300 miles).

It was originally a hardtop and has probably served in one or possibly both Gulf wars, the last unit to operate it was the Royal Anglian Regiment known in UK as the ďVikingsĒ. As such I have no idea of its previous operating history or repairs, so I am representing the truck as I know it.

Iíve converted it to a soft top using all genuine parts with a number of military issue additions such as New PVC Canopy, WMIK grille, side mounted wheel carrier, heater snow cover, 5 Bar hood checker plate, raised air intake and Donaldson extreme climate filter.

It also has an ARB Salisbury rear locker, on board compressor, power inverter, 2x individual 12v lighter type power outlets, front and rear diff protection, a 2Ē receiver, Hella LHD H4 headlamps with new surround bezels and up rated Rovers North Xenon bulbs fitted.

The engine is a fully reconditioned 300Tdi from UK and has only 20,000 miles on it with all new ancillary units such as Garret turbo, Bosch injection pump, injectors, alternator and starter motor. Up front are a new radiator, electric cooling fan, water pump, Allisport intercooler, reconditioned power steering box, new hoses and damper.

The transmission is a R380 stubby, with recent clutch assembly, release bearing, master and slave cylinders, with a 1.41 transfer box. Both major units are new reconditioned and fitted last month, with an X Eng handbrake. Both axles have all new oil seals and gaskets fitted.

In the cab are the ARB locker switches, VDO water and oil temperature gauges, new style steering wheel, new vent seals and a Tuffy security box with cup holders.
The vehicle is shod with 265x75xR16 Mud terrain tires with Terra Firma HD shocks all round and Land Rover HD coiled springs.

It has just had the oil and filter change, a new Serpentine belt fitted and the paint work tidied up.

There is a little body filler along the front bottom edge of the front left hand wing and a small spot behind the license plate done before I got the truck.

So all in all a very substantial package of parts and hundreds of hours of work that will give a new owner supreme confidence in the integrity of the vehicles mechanics, unlike typical vehicles of this age and type. It starts instantly, puts out a small grey puff of diesel smoke and immediately resumes a constant idle.

I personally would have no hesitation to drive this vehicle the length and breadth of the US. I would also welcome any demonstration or inspection necessary to confirm these attributes to a potential buyer.

Power is immediate and noticeable when driving making joining the freeway as easy as it should be.

My asking price is $30,500 reflecting the real value of this truck to a enthusiast who knows Land Rovers, wants a head turning, reliable daily driver that is a go anywhere vehicle.

I can supply any further photos you wish and would welcome any inquires as to specification or operation.

Hey guys, I wanted to send a shout out and a strong personal recommendation for Fraser. I purchased my 1986 D110 Tithonus from him earlier this year and had a great experience start to finish with the transaction. The vehicle is running very well, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I found it to be well sorted and as advertised. Fraser has remained "attached" to the vehicle in that he has been a great source of knowledge and assistance when needed, which he promised to do at the outset which made the transition to ownership easy and a lot less stressful for me since I didn't have much of a wrenching background. I would say we have become friends in the process, and I would buy another vehicle from him in a heartbeat and am sure any future owner of his 300TDi will have a great experience as well.

It's two part numbers

We - or anyone who can order from LR can supply - last I checked it was around $450 for both the mount and lifting straps with shipping.

And to bump the sale - this looks to be a reasonably well sorted 3-door 110 at a fair price.

I have driven this truck as a friend if Fraser and will second that it's a very sorted truck and in really good condition. It's actually got surprisingly good pick up with the TDI unit in it.

It's a fantastic deal for whoever is lucky enough to get this one!

Having seen this truck in person I can say it is one well sorted truck and would not hesitate to drive it across this great country of ours tomorrow! GLWTS Fraser sorry you have to sell it but someone is going to get a real quality built truck at a great price.
