Up for sale is my BABY. I bought this car from the second owner. who owned it for less than a year before he started a family and went the mini-van route. This car has largely been a single owner farm car on a small farm in northern Italy. With the aid of an excellent Land Rover shop in Italy (where I was stationed with the U. S. Navy). I have restored this 1988 Defender 90 to an OUTSTANDING condition and imported it into the US. It is legally registered. plated. and titled with a clear title in Virginia.  All numbers match. and the motor. transfer case. axles. gearbox. and chassis are in their original unmodified configuration. A heritage certificate purchased from the British Motoring Museum will be provided. It has been in a climate controlled garage every day since I purchased it. The vehicle will also come with 4 nearly-new (95% tread) Allroad 33" Mud Tires (which fit on the same rims currently on the car). The vehicle is rust-free with the exception of a few spots on the rear cross member (shown in pics). Not a significant concern. Please contact me with any questions. or if you want more pics/video.
Actual VIN is SALLDVBB8EA322432. For some reason. eBay doesn't recognize it because the vehicle was produced outside the US. Please do not refer to the VIN above.
