Andrew’s Shop Truck – Defender 110

This is a project truck currently located at our Salisbury, UK workshop. It belongs to Andrew. He loves it, but knows he can’t keep it. This will be a great base for a restoration.

This is the personal truck of our UK shop manager. He uses it for his daily commute to the workshop (about a mile). We all realized he was going to spend too much time fixing it up to match the Bishop+Rook builds that he decided to put it up for adoption so someone else can take on that task.

We tend to be overly critical about the “project trucks” we put on the market because we never want anyone to feel like they got in over their heads.  This Defender is mechanically well sorted, but does show some signs of adventure around the body.

Here’s what Andrew says about it:

Pricing notes:

The above price would include shipping to the east coast of the United States and clearance through customs.  We can help you arrange shipping from there, but it would be at your own expense.  You will also need to register the vehicle in your home state as a UK import – which we can guide you on that process.  We could bring the truck to the Minnesota shop and handle this paperwork for you, but there will be incremental costs associated with it.
