1988 Land Rover Defender 2. 5 Turbo Diesel. Selling with NO RESERVE to the highest bidder. Recently imported from Italy so it is left hand drive. Since photographed it has been Ontario safety certified and emissions tested so now has Ontario license plates and registration (Title). Located in Kingston. Ontario. Canada which is 20 minutes over the border from New York State. Eligible for import into the USA as it was manufactured 10/06/88 and is in 100% original unmodified condition. If an American purchases the Land Rover I am happy to assist with the importation which is very straight forward with a vehicle like this and only takes a matter of hours at the border. And I can deliver free of charge to Buffalo NY if you would prefer to not travel to Canada. Also delivery can be arranged to anywhere within the lower 48 States for an extra cost. please contact me with your Zip Code for a quote. This is possibly the best original 1988 Defender available anywhere. The overall condition is exceptional.  I own a business exporting classic American cars to Europe. I am currently looking for a 1972/1973 Buick Riviera and a 1972/1973 Dodge Challenger. So if you have one of these vehicles in exceptional condition we may be able to make a deal within the rules of Ebay. I have imported a few Land Rover Defender's in the past to the USA and Canada. This particular example is by far the best I have ever seen of an un-restored original 25 year old Defender partly due to coming from a dry climate and it has the added attraction of being left hand drive. It certainly is a world away from the rusty right hand drive British examples that are often found advertised for sale.
The bodywork is in excellent condition. There are a few minor imperfections but nothing that detracts from the overall stunning appearance of the vehicle. It shows more like a 2 year old Defender rather than a 25 year old Defender. It has never been used off road in its whole lifetime. The usual corrosion prone area's such as the firewall. out riggers and rear crossmember are totally rust free and original. It has never had or needed any welding repairs and still sits on its original frame. The condition of the vehicle is comparable to a vehicle that has spent its life in southern California. I had the Land Rover fully waxoyl rustproofed before it left Europe so as to protect it from any possibility of corrosion while on the boat. I have photographs of the rear crossmember and out riggers before and after so as you can see that it is not just waxoyl over rust and that the frame is in perfect rust free condition.
Mechanically this Land Rover is faultless. The original 2. 5 Turbo Diesel engine runs perfectly and pulls well. It was fully rebuilt a few years ago. It always starts. obviously you have to use the glow plugs when starting from cold. There is the expected usual diesel smoke when started from cold but this soon clears as it should. Last month it had a new timing belt. diesel lift pump. rebuilt injector pump. valve cover gasket. coolant. oil and filter. fuel filter and air filter. Since then it has completed a 1. 00 mile trip from Halifax NS to Kingston ON and it performed faultlessly using no oil. The clutch and transmission are precise and smooth to operate making for a rewarding driving experience. There are no nasty clonks or driveline noises. Both axles are quiet. The transfer box and differential lock work perfectly. Brakes are all good. the power assisted steering is precise with no play in the steering box. All the suspension components are faultless. All tires are good quality with plenty of tread depth including the spare. It runs and drives as it would of when new. It happily cruises at 65-70 mph and does not have any overheating issues at all. It has only covered 122. 00 kilometers which is 75. 00 miles.  The interior is also in exceptional condition. The headliner is perfect. The dash pad is not cracked. The door panels have no damage. It shows very little wear anywhere. There was a rip on the drivers seat base but I had a new seat base ordered and fitted to rectify this. All gauges operate as they should. The heater is very good. The door seals are good as there is no nasty wind noise as often there is with Defender's and it did not leak when it rained while driving the vehicle from Halifax. Overall a very nice and clean original Defender interior.  I genuinely believe this is the best example of a totally original 25 year old Defender that you will find anywhere. I have seen 2 year old British examples in worse condition. If you want the best original unmodified Defender Turbo Diesel available in North America than this is it. Also included in the sale are many spares including new brakes. wheel bearing. hubs and much else. If you have any questions please message me or you can call me on 613-328-1600. If I cannot answer leave a voicemail or send me a text message and I will get back to you.   ALSO AVAILABLE ON SEPERATE NO RESERVE AUCTION IS A FULLY REBUILT 200 TDI ENGINE COMPLETE WITH ALL ANCILLARIES. INTER COOLER AND EVERYTHING REQUIRED TO FIT IT. SEE MY OTHER ITEMS.  
A NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $1. 00 MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF AUCTION ENDING FOR ME TO HOLD THE LAND ROVER. THIS CAN BE PAID BY BANK TRANSFER/WIRE. THE FULL BALANCE MUST BE PAID BY BANK TRANSFER/WIRE WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION ENDING. ALTERNATIVELY YOU CAN PAY THE BALANCE IN CASH ON COLLECTION IF YOU PREFER. THE VEHICLE MUST BE COLLECTED WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION ENDING.
THE LAND ROVER IS LOCATED IN KINGSTON. ONTARIO CANADA. I AM HAPPY TO COLLECT THE BUYER FROM TORONTO AIRPORT FREE OF CHARGE IF YOU SHOULD REQUIRE. OR I CAN DELIVER TO BUFFALO NY IF AMERICAN BUYERS WOULD PREFER. I DON'T SEE ANY REASON WHY THIS LAND ROVER WOULD NOT DRIVE ANYWHERE IN NORTH AMERICA SO DRIVING IT HOME WOULD BE AN OPTION.
