1983 Land Rover 110 Defender
Dark blue with lots of extras, side steps, snorkel, Sound system, sunroof, checker plate, spot lights, bull guards and alloy wheels.
This Defender has had a lot of money spent on it. It was my own which I have had in UK,Germany and Holland for many years. I replaced tons of parts including suspension and brakes.
The 200TDI turbo diesel engine is the best engine they made and was rebuilt by a expert in Holland and gives 30-34 mpg , it is designed to run on any grade diesel should find yourself in Mexico or Africa!
The interiour is in perfect condition and it's comfortable at 75mph.
Price is $37,000
5 speed Manuel transmission gives great power in lower and cruise mode.
Text me for viewing and test drive. Currently the Defender is in San Diego
Solid non complicated car. No electronics in the car so easy to maintain.
Just came across your listing on ebay. It's now advertised for only $19,500.
From 37500 to 19500, why such a big price drop for a car in such a good condition?
Also, I have few doubts about this vehicle. First of all, if I check the chassis nr.: SALLDHAC7BA245926, there is two things that are wrong. According to the chassis nr. it should be a two door Defender, manufactured between 1985 and 1987. See information below.
SAL Manufacturer code: Land Rover
LD Model: Defender (for early models: Ninety, or One Ten)
H Wheel base: 110 inch
A Body type: 2-door: Pickup, hood cab, truck cab, or soft/hard top
C Engine type: 2.5 litre diesel (model 12J)
7 Steering and transmission: Right-hand drive (RHD), 5-speed manual (LT85, LT77, LT77S, R380 or other)
B Model year: 1985 to 1987
A Assembly location: Solihull, UK
245926 Serial number
Have you got any explanation for this?
Also, a good friend of mine who is based in The Netherlands has recognized this Defender. On his inspection he noticed the chassis nr. is not the original one (does not have the start and end signs). Also the body, as well as the engine are from a newer Defender.
Finally, this Defender has been owned by a Dutch guy for a few years. So how come you have owned it in the UK, Holland and Germany for several years?
Please have a look at my remarks. You don't want the new owner to get in trouble with Homeland Security right?
Looking forward for your soonest reply.
