This is a 1986 Land Rover 110; otherwise known as a Defender 110. It has an upgraded power train with a 300 Tdi
(Turbo Diesel) engine and power steering. It has four side doors and one rear door and seats nine people. It is
"continental european" meaning it was built as a left hand drive and hasn't been converted. Since completion the
vehicle has been driven approximately 600 miles, but the original odometer has 242,000 kilometers on it. The VIN
(SALLDHMC8BA279904) matches the number on the VIN plate in the engine bay.
It pains me a great deal to part with this vehicle. I have really enjoyed spending the last year restoring this
vehicle after bringing it back with me from Europe. This vehicle has had only one previous owner and spent nearly
all of its 30 years in Croatia. In July 2015, It was legally
imported and has a free and clear Virginia title with no liens. The frame had, and still has, no rust except for
the rear crossmember (which bolts on) and was replaced. The excellent condition of the undercarriage is likely a
result of the temperate climate of the Mediterranean/Adriatic region of Croatia. All of the restoration and
maintenance was personally conducted by me except for the professional paint and sand blasting/powder coating of
the frame.

Own a piece of history! The Land Rover Defender line is now shut down. As of February 2016, Land Rover stopped
making this classic vehicle. The Defender is only going to increase in value. Since the Series vehicles have been
produced after WWII, nearly two-thirds of all Land Rover Series/Defenders are still on the road; a testament to
their design and durability and the love of their owners to keep them going. The frame and bulkhead are steel, but
the body is aluminum, which contributes to its longevity due to its inherent defense against corrosion.

European automakers gear up for Brazilian production

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 08:01:00 EST

Brazil is the place to be, apparently. Toyota has been investing in the South American country, as has BMW, which announced a $261 million investment in October 2012, on the heels of an Audi factory announcement in San José Chiapa. The high-end immigration is only set to continue, as Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar-Land Rover have both announced plans to set up manufacturing operations there.
Mercedes is the big news here, as its new facility will see the German manufacturer invest 170-million euros for production of its next-generation C-Class and upcoming GLA-Class. "Brazil is an important future market. With our local production we accept the challenge and take on the competition," noted Andreas Renschler, Management Board member for Production and Procurement at Mercedes-Benz Cars and Mercedes-Benz Vans. Production is expected to begin by 2016.
Jaguar-Land Rover, meanwhile, isn't so concrete in its plans. The news of its investment in South America comes from a job posting for a plant quality manager in Brazil that was picked up by the UK's AutoCar. "Portuguese language skills will be definite advantage" for interested candidates, according to the job listing. The want ad follows on the heels of remarks by Jaguar Land Rover's Dr. Ralph Speth, who said there are "very intensive discussions" with Brazil's government. Unlike Mercedes, there's no mention of which vehicles will be produced in South America, although AutoCar thinks the Freelander, sold in the US as the LR2, is a leading contender.

Jaguar Land Rover opens first overseas factory in China

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 18:03:00 EST

Anyone who's a car fan knows that Jaguar and Land Rover cars and trucks all come from the UK. And while we don't doubt that will remain true for the most part, it won't be an absolute truth for long, as the British automaker has just opened its first factory overseas.
Its new plant in Changshu, China, is the result of a $1.8-billion joint venture between JLR and local automaker Chery. It covers some 4.3-million square feet and will, once at peak capacity, produce 130,000 units specifically for the Chinese market, where JLR sells over 100,000 vehicles each year to make it the company's single largest market worldwide.
Production at what's officially known as the Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Company will start with the Evoque, of which one in five globally are currently sold in China. Production will eventually encompass three models. We already know that the Discovery Sport will be next, but the third model line has yet to be announced. JLR has confirmed, however, that the Changshu plant will produce unique models and derivatives specifically for the Chinese market, so we wouldn't be surprised to see a long-wheelbase version of the forthcoming XE or next-generation XF assembled there to satisfy local tastes.

Jaguar and Land Rover to consolidate dealerships

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 11:00:00 EST

Jaguar and Land Rover are set to merge their sales facilities, according to Inside Line. Jaguar Land Rover North America President Andy Gross says 45 percent of Jaguar owners also have an SUV in their stable, so it makes sense to give customers as much exposure to the cat's high-riding cousins and possible. The number of overall outlets will remain the same, and the brands will reportedly remain separate on the showroom floor, however.
So far, just one dealer has made the move to combine under the roof of one 68,000 square-foot facility in Paramus, New Jersey (above), though a further 20 are ready to make the shift and become Jaguar Land Rover outlets. Gross believes the shift is necessary so that his company's dealer network will accurately reflect the company's products. We'll see how cozy the brands are when Jaguar starts rolling out its own SUVs in a few years.
