Soon to be FS 1987 110 Wagon

A customer of ours is going to be selling his 1987 Defender 110 5 door. It was originally a 3.5 carb, but a few years ago we converted it to 3.9EFI R380 5 speed with low miles take out stuff from a Tdi conversion. Its a very nice truck, Blue, LHD. It needs some stuff, but it isn't junk and it won't be in the NAS 110 price bracket. Just wanted to let folks here know it will be hitting the ECR web site soon if the were looking for a running and driving 110.

Sorry, this should be in vehicles not parts... maybe C can move it??

Does it have the necessary waivers from DOT/EPA/whoever else? Any idea on price?

Don't know... didn't import it, just worked on it. It was brought in in 1984 and has changed hands at least 2 times I know of since then. I don't know what the import rules were in 1984.

Sorry, type-o.
1987... I was day dreaming about the old 1984 110 I had years ago while typing, as those early 110s always remind me of it.

87 may be a legal grey market import. I owned several euro spec BMW 745i turbo's and six series back in the 80's that were brought in this way ( still have an e30 Baur 323 cabriolet with all of Alpina's aftermarket goodies if any body wants one).

It used to be that epa would grant you a 1 time exemption to bring in a car and then you had to bring it up to DOT specs-5mph bumpers, sealed beam headlamps, door beams for side impacts etc. The govt closed this loop hole in late 87 or early 88.

A call to epa and dot with the Vin number will tell you if its cool with da man.

Neat truck if that's it.

The green pickup on the front page in front of your shop is neat as hell, too. Is that a 110 pickup or something else (humor the newb, eh?).

Yup, that is the truck.

The Green truck is a Hi-Cap 110 we built from rusted out NAS 110 #48 (I think).
Sadly it went up a few years ago it went up in flames due to oil line fire. It didn't have our (or anyone else's) upgraded lines. It had factory lines that had about 12K miles on them. Poof... and now its gone. I think Matt B had the task of building something out of the remains.
This is when we built it:

If they've got DOT and EPA releases I wouldnt worry about it. My M635 (imported new in 1984 by a reputable company - Hardy & Beck) has an EPA release paper and a DOT compliance sticker inside the door.

Do you have an asking price yet? Or are you waiting to see its condition?

ECR Defender 110's, question for Mike

I hear your BR110's are going for over $150k. I was just curious why you don't build more of these? If the market's there why not produce more of them..... TLC is supposed to produce something like 24 Icons this year and they start at $100k and there's a waiting list (I know apples to oranges, but my point is the market and people willing to pay these numbers)

Really, wow! 150k for a BR110.

I wonder what percentage of that is ECR known quality premium.

They don't seem that complicated relative to a normal 90 to 110 conversion.

Uniqueness maybe? There is going to be nothing like my CBRunner though - "priceless"

Yes, but it seems like it is not horribly difficult to duplicate. Would be much harder to clone an NAS 110.

Janey will be fun as a CB110 Runner.

How is she doing? Any website updates?

Doing it "right" is probably a lot harder than you think.

She's doing great. Took her wheeling a few weeks back and did great. Banged up the sills and the drag link a little (but kicked butt on the trail), and lost the starter relay, but other than that and what seemed to be the choke sticking a little on the way home, it was a flawless weekend. She's been running so well I no longer carry a full set of tools and a spare battery! I've put over 1K miles on her now - more than my D90 in about 2 years, LOL.

No pictures or website updates yet. Might not happen till it warms up a little

No doubt it is hard to do "right" but 100k premium over a very nice low miles 1997 D90 hard?

Good to hear about Janey, but I would still carry all the tools and battery. She is great offroad. Nice low gears and crawls well, longer wheelbase, seemed easier to drive than an NAS 90.

Suprisingly there are many people out there willing to pay 150K (and more) for a well built, to their spec, Defender. Figure out shop rate for a 1500+ hr restoration + the "donor" + parts.
