1983, Right Hand Drive model, recently imported from the UK, This is a truly beautiful truck, one of the first 110's and is ready for summer!

VIN: SALLDHAG7AA198631(Ebay doesn’t accept older UK VINS)

This has the turbocharged (19J) 2.5D engine, which was upgraded from the original 2.25D engine originally fitted on these very early models, the engine runs smoothly, it shows some light smoke on start up but clears quickly and pulls well. Showing 186k on the clock but its had a new engine. It happily cruises at highway speeds, The gearbox is smooth and shifts well. The brakes have been overhauled with new components and new brake lines are fitted.

The body is rust completely free, as is the bulkhead and footwells, it has been fully resprayed earlier this year, the door bottoms have been repaired and are solid. This model is one of the first 110 produced and therefore has some unique features, such as the original 2 piece doors and galvanised capping on the rear tub. The roof and side panels can be removed to make an amazing beach truck, we can supply you with a canvas back if required (at extra cost)

The chassis is clean and sound, it’s been fitted with new outrigger up front, the other three were perfect so are original, the top of the bulkhead has been replaced, and a new screen has been fitted, it's completely solid throughout, All new lights have been fitted all round
