On the other hand, maybe not ;-)

and a half-shagged one at that.

decent defenders, especially 110 CSW, hold their value like few other
vehicles.

Unless you specially want one, then discos are the best bet for
bang-for-buck in the medium-age secondhand market at the moment. V8 RRCs
are cheap if old, but you need to be converting 'em and you need the
mechanical know-how to keep 'em on the road, really.

D90s are more likely to be cheap, especially truck cabs or vans, and
non-TDI.

There's a good deal of merit though in looking for a decent tax-exempt
series IIA or III... very easy motors to work on and if you're not doing
huge mileage you can live with the 15-20 mpg thirst for petrol. series
diesels are a slow as a slow thing, unless they've had a heart transplant
for a more modern lump such as the 2.5 non-turbo or maybe the perkins prima
turbo.

2.1/4 petrol SWB makes a nice runabout though and is fast enough not to be
embarrassing in modern traffic.

I'd hazard a guess that the OP meant this kind of thing and fell in to the
"It's got to be called a defender" which is slightly less of a sin than
asking for a j**p in the same posting.

I paid 1200 for my 90 (looks like a Defender) van a couple of years ago
with 47,000 genuine miles on the clock and it needed/still needs a bit of
work so you would be looking at something old.

Ah! I know, how about a S111 van? :-)
