Defender 110 Td5 Chassis 2002 - For Project

#1 Post by seatosky » Sat Jul 04, 2020 11:22 am

I am posting on behalf of a friend. We have just stripped down his 110 chassis and it is ready for a new home. It's a 2002 with about 60,000 miles, an ex Fire truck. Despite having been cleaned and waxoyled religiously (as fire departments do) it will probably require a new rear crossmember (about $1000 from LRdirect, shipped to BC and duty paid.) We believe it was used for launching a dinghy which is why the front 3/4 of the chassis is in very good shape (large sections still have original paint!) but most of it behind the rear wheel humps is in poor shape. The shock mounts and suspension mounts are all in good condition. A new crossmember section and this would make a very good base for a project vehicle. No accidents or other major damage. It will come with the body crossmembers and body mounts, there may also be some extra parts available from the project.


It's currently located in Vancouver near Mt. Pleasant area and is ready to go - has been thoroughly steam cleaned recently. I will get some pictures as soon as I can.

$1750 obo.

Hi, why was it stripped to a bare chassis?

Parts of body were in worse shape than the chassis, lots of galvanic corrosion in the rear so it had to come off to be repaired. I had a container coming anyway so we brought a galvanized chassis over. The existing chassis turned out to be in decent shape except for the crossmember but the opportunity to swap on to a galv chassis was one that had to be taken!
