I think I paid 14k for it when I bought it on ebay in 2004 or so from Fruitpunch.

I talked with these guys about the Arles 90 listed for $33k but was unable to work a deal, they simply wanted too much. They offered this truck to me for $26.

I test Yeastie back in December. At that time it had a blown head gasket and I barely made it around the block. The Arles one had the loudest transmission and stalled at every stop light. There was a red one at the Lynnwood showroom that I couldn't keep going in a straight line. Those were the first 3 Defenders I ever drove, but I still kept looking.
I hope Yeastie finds a good home at a fair price.

She blew a head gasket?

Bastards have neglected her.

This is the same truck that Jim C had in Russia, wasn't it?

Yes, and someone else owned it in Europe for several years.

Breaks my heart, poor girl just wants some love. I really loved this truck. Some of my fav. pics of her. I guess you have the D-BUG when it actually hurts when you look at pics of the truck you sold. Rob, Ron, and Jim, I am sure you would agree. And yes Jeff, she IS a she, and and a damn good one at that!!! Hell I just realized I never even changed my "vehicle" status since I sold her!!!!

Original owner was "fruitpunch" from the RN board. He bought it in the US in 1995 (POEs were late production and sat on the lot forever) and shipped it to switzerland as it was cheaper to buy a defender in the US than Europe back then. He added the side tank as he and had planned to run dakar, but never did. I bought it off ebay from him around 2004 or so. She still had the POE top and had 255 85 R16 swampers and the temp sensor and fuel injector wire switched, but otherwise was very well cared for. I had her for a while fixing that issue and converting to a soft top, put on some BFG ATs then I sold to JimC (which is where she acquired the name--the center cubby had mold in it from me leaving the top off all the time and water getting in it) and JimC took her to Russia. I did not want to sell, but I was broke. JimC had her in Russia and did tires and a bunch of JimC OCD stuff making it nicer. He also put on the fiberglass top. JimC brought her back and sold to Bstraw (I almost bought her back, but Bstraw seemed like he wanted her and would give her a good home). Not sure who Bstraw sold her to.

The POE top went to Dan, right?

He does have a real name (which I think is a secret) and I believe still has his series truck.

Does anyone know the dealer or individual selling this truck right now?

Anyone know what the auction site is describing as damaged?
