Ok, here I have a 110 V8 which is not perfect and need some attention. For sure not a full restoration and with not to much work you can have a nice daily driver.

Really, this car was only driven by a lady for the last 12 years and was always maintained by a Land Rover specialist. It has done 300K miles and the engine was ones overhauled. No papers to back this up but the engine is really nice running, easy starting and plenty of power, so I have reasons to believe this story. Also the gearbox is really quite for a LT95, it wouldn't surprise me that this was replaced also.

It is recently imported from Europe and comes with all the import documents.

The Good:

- all original Land Rover 110
- decent interior except the inward facing seats in the back
- body pretty straight, some minor dents. I wouldn't do anything about it, shows it character
- drives nice, plenty of power no weird noises, vibrations or anything
- brakes and steering good
- frame solid, but repaired
- door frames, in decent shape, I would recommend treatment before they get bad
- LH C pillar repaired, RH in good shape
- Four almost new tires, spare is bad
- bulkhead under windscreen in good condition


The Bad::

- leaking muffler
- Frame solid but repaired. Rear cross member looks strong and solid but is home made.
- Outriggers in front are repaired
- Engine can use a tune up. Runs nice but a little back fire when you release the throttle.
- attaching point of rear seat belts need repair
- One part of the headliner is sagging a little
- both rear quarters have a dent at the bottom corner. Have some chequer plate to hide.
- little dent at RH fender
- driver side foot well repaired
- passenger side foot well needs repair

After this "bad" list, you might think have your doubts about the condition of this car. I would call it average and I am sure that many of the 110's up for sale have the same issues (or more) but are only listed 'different'.

Having said this, please DON"T buy this car if you can not work on it yourself. I think this is the perfect car for someone who has some technical skills and is looking for a cheaper 110. Beside time, it doesn't need a whole lot of money to turn this into a decent car.

I will make more pictures later today.

I do think it's a fair price and you always list trucks as you see them. :thumb:
The big thing against it for me is it's a gas motor.
I have also noticed that red trucks take longer to sell based on what I have seen the past few months.

Bump..


To the buyer of this car, I will offer for only $ 500,= a full, almost new 5 door Defender soft top. Comes with all sticks, rear half door, canvas all nuts and bolds.


You can make a very nice "Beach Runner" especially as the car has the half doors with door tops which you can take off !!


Enjoy it while it is still summer

For my future reference if you all don't mind.

Are these tops actively made? Who makes them?

Thanks

I thought I made a nice deal on this car. No buyers yet though.


Have to make room and no time this fall to do anything with Land Rovers so, make me a realistic offer.


This might be the cheapest 5-door LHD 110 in the country.

ok, few people asked me for best price. Lowest I can go is $ 16,250.
Anything lower and it almost is better to sell them in Europe :)


ps this price does not include the deal with the soft top anymore. Still available but then against normal sale price.

Soft top

Thanks. Seems like you buy and sell quite a bit so if you have another I would be interested depending on price. Idea of what that set up would run?

Make me an offer !!!!

Might be the cheapest 5-door LHD 110 in the country. With this one I had bad luck at customs, it spend there almost three or four weeks. Finally was released without any problem but the bounded warehouse charged me $ 6,000 for the container for two cars. I had hoped the margin of the car would make up for that.... maybe not.

Willing to take (a little) los. I only sell to people with technical knowledge and those who are not afraid for dirty hands.
