Thanks for your further thoughts Jeff. It's not marketing anything, we absolutely are not a manufacturer and we certainly never and nowhere speak of creating new vehicles mate - when you start a business you invest a lot of money, you employ a lot of people, you build a supply chain and then begin to build things...as your business grows...you build more and you build better...the early stuff that you practiced on you either throw away or you sell at discount.....we aint in the business of throwing Defenders away Jeff - cheers Andy

Arkonik - Land Rovers, Range Rovers, 4x4 Vehicles for Sale

This is all you need to know. 31000 dollars for this, complete with big dent on front wing. This thing cost you no more than a third of that to source (including costs to ship to the US).

That's a lot of money for a rusty door.

FYI - The only item left off this truck is the rear tub, everything else has now gone to a good home. $400 + shipping, but very open to offers.
