1985 RHD 110 3 Door V8

Hello All,

Many of you are familiar with where this truck came from, how I came to own it, and all the work that was put into it by quite a few of the people in this community. This truck is the product of the generosity of you all, and I will forever be thankful. I really do not want to get rid of it, but sometimes life has other plans. I will always be grateful for, and indebted to, the members of this community for your efforts. Thank you.

Details:

1985 ROW 110, right hand drive 3 door. All import docs on hand. Iíve had it since summer of 2014, and its acquisition/build is well documented on this forum in the following threads:

The backstory:
https://www.defendersource.com/forum/f14/operation-get-kent-aka-85red110-his-truck-back-53092.html

The build:
https://www.defendersource.com/forum/f14/operation-85red110s-truck-phase-2-the-build-55415.html

The truck runs well, and I drive it around town often, but it isnt perfect. Yet. This is reflected in the price.

The current configuration of the truck is as a soft top, with a custom designed and built interior roll cage by Brian Kandefer (Brewie1212) of LRC Customs.

The engine is a Rover 3.9 V8 mated to an R380 and 1.2 LT230. The V8 is equipped with a FiTech Go EFI 600 Fuel Injection system. Donít know much about the V8, as it was a donor with unknown mileage. It runs well, but could probably use a valve adjustment. When installed, I replaced the water pump, distributor cap, thermostat, spark plugs, leads, ignition coil, aluminum V8 radiator, and installed dual electric fans. R380 shifts good, except for a grind going into 5th if you arent careful.

Exhaust is a custom built system by AA Speed in Woodbridge VA, which is a single 2.5Ē pipe from the Y at the stock manifolds with no cats and a Magnaflow muffler. It sounds as good as any LS swapped truck.

Along with the V8 engine swap and fuel injection installation, I removed every wire in the vehicle and replaced it with an American Autowire Highway 22 system. Every wire from the TruckLite LED headlights to the LED taillights is part of the new system. The only Lucas/Rover electronic parts left on the truck aside from the alternator and distributor are the windshield wiper motor, turn signal lever and wiper lever (and both of those are new). The American Autowire fuse panel is mounted to the bulkhead, and is larger than a stock LR fuse panel. This required a custom fabricated lower dash in order for it to fit, which I built from sheetmetal and wood, then sprayed with black Raptorliner. Along with the custom lower dash, I fabricated a new defrost/heat system and ductwork. The new heater is a JEGS Hot Rod Heater.

To complete the new wiring and fuel injection systems, I installed all new Speedhut gauges. The speedometer functions by GPS, and works very well. I also installed Speedhut tachometer and 4 function combination gauge which shows volts, oil pressure, water temperature, and fuel level.

I have a new V8 power steering pump, and a used RHD power steering box if the new owner wants to install power steering.

The truck is 99.9% rust free. The frame, rear crossmember, and bulkhead are in near perfect shape.

The white paint is not good, but the body panels are dent-free, so if you wanted to get the truck painted, it would look very nice.

There are two side lockers installed right behind each door. They are big enough to hold two 5 gallon Jerry cans each. The drivers side locker is where the battery is located, after I moved it from the seat box due to the Corbeau Moab seats not having removable bases. The seats are spice (tan) colored Neoprene material. They come with charcoal colored weatherproof covers.

When we initially built the truck in the summer of 2014, the axles/hubs/brakes were all rebuilt, but the original brake booster now has a vacuum leak, so braking requires a strong leg. The suspension was all new, including all new orange poly bushings everywhere. The suspension is TerraFirma +2Ē medium duty. Black modular steel wheels and Toyo Open Country MT 255/85-16 tires with about 2500 miles on them. Matching spare is mounted to a Britpart swing-away spare carrier on the rear. I fabricated Hi-Lift Jack mounts to the spare carrier, and the Hi-Lift Jack is included with the truck.

The load space has been completely covered with Dynamat and rolled with gray rubber texture bedliner. The seatbox, floor panels, door interiors, and footwells have also been completely Dynamated, and sprayed with bedliner for noise insulation and rust prevention. Each part was sprayed individually, then re-installed in the truck, so dis-assembly is still easy. Interior has the Exmoor/Wright matting system on the floors.

The truck has a Rockware bumper installed with a Warn VR10000 winch (never used). This will be included with the truck, but it can be removed if the buyer wants to save $1000, or just doesn't want it. I can remove it and sell it separately after the truck is sold.

I encourage anyone interested to PM me with questions, and I definitely encourage anyone who is local to set up a time to meet with me so you can see the truck for yourself. I am located in Springfield VA. Come to a NOVA Happy Hour and see the truck in person while hanging out with all of us yahoos. Ill buy you a beer.

I will offer this truck to forum members for the price of $18,000 ($17k without Rockware and winch). I will eventually list it for sale locally and possibly on Ebay, if there is no interest here.

Certain members of this forum who made particularly significant donations and contributions to the initial acquisition/building/development of this truck will get an even further discount, if they wish to buy the truck. There are a few members whose contributions were in the several thousands of dollars range, or whose efforts can be valued in the thousands of dollars, so I think that is fair.

Thank you,
Kent

Saddened, but wishing you the best of luck with the sale. Many delightful hours spent in Charles' garage and yours bringing this to life.

Here are some I took today. Removed the soft top and rear section of hoop set, and put on a bikini top I had made from spare green canvas.

Great looking truck. If I had the spare funds right now I'd take it for sure.

If you still have it in Spet I'll be up for it.
