UK Vin Number - 92611545A

Please note. this vehicle is just leaving the UK on its way to America or more precisely Bluffton near Hilton Head. SC. It will be ready to collect approximately 28 days after the auction has finished. The vehicle will be to collect from Hilton Head and will come with all the relevant EPA. DOT. DMV paperwork and ready for the US roads. All we ask for is a $1000 USD deposit by paypal upon winning the auction to secure it. We regularly sell Defenders in the USA and if you look at my completed listings you will see we have just sold a 1985 Landrover 110 CSW V8.

Hi and thanks for looking at our listing for this Landrover Defender 90. Unlike many sellers this Landrover is to be collected by the new buyer in USA and comes with all relevant EPA and DOT clearance all ready for the new owner to title. The Landrover is originally from the United Kingdom and it still has 10 months of the UK MOT remaining. For those unfamiliar with the MOT it is a 12 monthly requirement in the UK for all vehicles where they check things such as brakes. lights. steering. chassis. and all round general safety. I have this certificate to hand and will be given to the new keeper which guaranteed you a safe. roadworthy Landrover.

The Vehicle

The Landrover itself is a rare 88" factory County Station Wagon. This Landrover has been fully restored approximately 12-18 months ago. A lot of money was spent on it. The Frame was taken off and the whole rear third of the frame was renewed for a brand new section. New outriggers were also installed and the whole frame was gone over and sealed to provide years of protection. The whole bulkhead has been renewed around 24 months ago along with new A pillars and floor pans. In addition. new front doors were fitted around the same time. The front seats are brand new and have not been sat in. The motor was removed from the Landrover and has been fully rebuilt with new Pistons. valves. head skimming work and a general complete overhaul. The motor has also been freshened up and colour coded to match the exterior. The gearbox was removed. rebuilt and added was a Fairey overdrive system which gives an extra gear for Freeway driving. The fluids in the front and rear diff were drained and diffs were resealed again for extra longevity. A new set of genuine and expensive Landrover wheels were added. The paintwork has been done around 18 months ago and a new galvanised bumper has been fitted. The cost of this work was well above $10. 00 and probably closer to $15. 00.

The Body

The exterior is finished in a marine blue contrasted with a cream safari roof. These Landrovers as you will know have aluminum panels and as such they generally have a few light impressions as this one does but nothing major. There is also a slight crack to the paint on the rear quarter but nothing major at all. The metal trim around the windows and lights etc has all been painted along with the whole body and engine bay being painted. The exterior looks very good indeed as you would expect but please remember it has been used for the last 12 months as a daily driver so there a few light marks that are just "typical Landrover". The frame is superbly solid. the bulkhead is great and the whole thing is just nice and solid and all the expensive jobs have been taken care of.

The Interior

The inside of the vehicle is clean. tidy and original. The 3 front seats are brand new and have hardly been sat in. Being the Safari station wagon. it has the genuine and factory fitted 4 x fold down rear seats in the back. They are in decent shape but do have so signs of use and a small amount of wear on a couple of them. We have chequer plated the rear out and it has even been painted on the inside to match the outisde. The 2 x front doors were new arounf 18 months ago so no corrosion issues on the ddor frames etc. The rear door is also very good and solid. The rear door card has a few marks but nothing major at all. Again very good indeed. Floor in the front has all been painted as well.

Mechanicals

The 2. 25 Diesel engine has been removed and gone through and basically fully rebuilt. It wanted for nothing and the rebuild was done by a Landrover shop so done properly. The motor is great and runs without fault. The gearbox was removed. stripped and rebuilt with the addition of the Fairey Overdrive system which is a $1000 job on its own. The 4WD system was gone through and new uj's were added and the prop was all greased to factory spec. The brakes have been overhauled. The steering box has been replaced and adjusted accordingly. A new radiator was added also. All fluids were drained and renewed and engine fully serviced. As you can imagine it runs like new and the Landrover shop commented on how quiet it ran for a diesel one of this age. This is ready to be driven and enjoyed on a daily basis!

Customs. title and delivery

The vehicle when collected will have passed all DOT and DMV test/inspections and is 100% USA legal.
