    Default Looking for a 200tdi Disco 1

    Hi All,

    As scarce as they are, I'm looking for a Discovery 1 200tdi 5 door (pre-'94 face-lift) and hoping that someone might have one for sale or leads on one that might be for sale... I'm not too bothered about condition, would be more than happy just to find one whether in good nick or a bit of a project!

    Any info will be greatly appreciated!

    The emphasis being on the word "few" - they are scarcer than hen's teeth with braces on...

    To the OP: Good luck with your search. They are awesome vehicles!

    Why specifically the 200TDi?

    Wasn't that engine prone to cylinder head gasket issues?

    200Tdi motor was bullet proof, just make sure you change cambelt.

    They more tractor like that 300Tdi but more reliable as well. In the UK most have been chopped up and the 200Tdi transplanted into Series, so they are becoming few and far between now.

    They are much more collectable because of this than the post 94 model Disco 1.

    Yep, I have some insight into Project Gemini.

    As for collectable: try find a decent 300TDi D1 these days.........

    I think a lot of people are hoping the 200Tdi Disco 1 3door/5 door are going to be like the Range Rover classic in 20yrs with regards to value and are trying to get one now at a bargain price of 30k but I have my doubts.

    I personally don't see cars as an investment but each to their own. We will see in 20yrs if we alive

    One of the workers at LMC drives a 200Tdi 5 door, maybe he is willing to part with it. Worth a try.

    Thanks all for your input so far!

    @Jelo I've always loved the Disco 1s. I grew up in my dad's '96 V8i and with many Camel Trophy VHS tapes from the events in the 90s. Mostly keen on the look of the 200tdi models, but do prefer the 200tdi to the 300tdi because it's a little less refined (ironically).

    @Byron, I've been hoping to pick one up to use as an almost-daily and / or overlander. If I find one now, I'm certainly never letting it go! I have found 2 previously, but one had rust so bad in the rear that the back-door literally fell off its hinges and I was too slow on the other one. If you happen to have anymore info about how I might get in touch with the guy at LMC, it would be greatly appreciated!?

    Goblin is stunning! My perfect spec would be Ardenne or Coniston Green on wolfs. Thanks a lot Byron, will keep the thread updated if I come across anything!

    I suppose i COULD be forced to part with my '04 D2 TD5 with 99540k's for a LOT of RRR

    good luck with the 200TDi search .

    You have been threatening to sell the TD5 for so long now, just take the plunge, ask your price, put it In the classifieds and let's see what happens!

    That is what you told me when I was looking for a Disco 2 Td5 about 3 years ago. But we are now digressing from what this thread is actually about.
