The paint is original so expect to see a few scratches and some minor paint flaking near the rear lights but no dents can be seen. The doors were replaced with new (yet retro) safari doors and sliding windows. The front doors, new lower sill panels, wheel arches and roof were painted in Portofino red to match. The removable door tops are red underneath but wrapped in gloss black to complete the floating roof look. There are new hinges and new matching door catches and locks throughout. Also added were new door steps, front lights and a new grille. The front windscreen has been replaced and DOT approved panoramic side windows were professionally fitted in 2018. The seller notes that seamless windows are perfect for privacy if camping and also help keep the interior cool. The wheels are new Sawtooth 16″ alloy wheels and wear BFGoodrich All Terrain KO2 tires. The rear door has had the rear wiper and defogger removed and a new Mantec wheel carrier holds the spare.

The seller notes there is no rust on the truck and we see no evidence of any in the pictures provided except what appears to be some small surface spotting in the passenger floor pan (pic included in the gallery). The bulkhead and rear crossmember appear solid.

Inside are Exmoor Trim Modular seats finished in brown cloth/vinyl material, along with new door panels and new Tithonus moulded floor and a seat matting system for sound insulation. The rear has new rubber matting and Tithonus military seats to one side complete with new lap belts. Envisaged as a weekend recreational vehicle, the other side has been deliberately left blank for fixing a gun case, fishing case, lockable storage, bed or any other bug-out accouterments of desire. The heater system was removed, dismantled, fully cleaned, resealed and fitted with a new blower motor. A new versatile central dash console has been installed but left blank. A new owner could fit a radio, additional dials or touch screen bluetooth/sat/nav. Newly added is a complete A/C system installed in 2018 (amen to that in the south).

This D110 is powered by a 2.5L 200TDI 4-cyl diesel mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case. The seller reports that a recent top-end rebuild was completed, which included machining the cylinder head, as well as a new water pump, reconditioned fuel injection pump (nice), new valves, springs, seals, gaskets, head bolts, camshaft belt, and belt tensioner. The viscous-clutch fan was replaced with an electric Revotech unit. An Ashcroft transmission, clutch and heavy duty fork is new as of 2016. The transfer box was replaced with one from a Discovery for better highway gearing. It had new bearings, oil seals and the uprated cross drilled input gear fitted. Both propshafts are new as are the rear halfshafts and Terrafirma Heavy Duty rear drive members. The front axle was replaced with a complete military reconditioned one with new discs and swivel hubs. The suspension was rebuilt with new springs, shocks and galvanized shock turrets. A new steering guard protects a new steering damper and tie rod.
