Car description

I've moved house and the Land Rover has to go. I brought this Land Rover over from the UK last year with the intention of renovating it however circumstances have now changed and I no longer have the space to keep it. It isn't currently titled in the US however it does have the UK Title (V5) and the signed and stamped importation papers (CBP 3461, CBP 7501, EPA 3520, DOT HS-7). Its a simple process to go to the DMV and hand these over for a US Title.


The vehicle is in Hewlett, NY. It is insured and can be driven. Test drives are possible and encouraged. I can also bring it into Manhattan by prior arrangement if required for viewing.


The Land Rover belonged to a friend of mine in the UK. He spent a good deal of time and money renovating and upgrading it. It is fitted with Boost Alloy wheels with Goodrich Mud-Terrain Tires, terrafirma suspension, the headlights have been replaced with Halogen units, additional Wipac driving lamps have been fitted. The side lights, rear lamps and indicators have been upgraded to LED units. Lamp guards are fitted to the rear and an a-frame nudge bar mounted to the front bumper. It has checker plate on the front hood and the rear door. The main roof panel was also replaced to one without a sunroof. This is a good move as the sunroofs always used to leak. It is the correct roof panel with the Alpine Windows, correct for the County Station Wagon.


The interior is standard and in good condition with no rips or tears. It is fitted with a cubby box between the front seats and has the inward facing rear seats. As it is the CSW model it has the head liner and trim finishing panels. Unfortunately the headliner above the front seats is missing, the original had the hole for the sunroof, a replacement is required for a non-sunroof version as currently configured. the headliner over the rear seats is in good condition.


The engine and transmission are in good condition. It has covered 97,500 miles which is low for its age. It starts, runs and drives well. It was used recently as a daily driver and could continue to do so with no issues.


The chassis is solid with no corrosion. The bulkhead is also in good condition with no corrosion. The bottom of the door frames have been replaced at some point in the last few years, this is a common repair on Land Rovers of this age and these have been done to a high standard, however the repaired panels do show signs of more corrosion. When the door bottoms were replaced the doors appear to have been repainted. The color matches the rest of the bodywork, however the quality of the paint on the doors is not as good as the rest of the vehicle. As expected on a vehicle of this age there are a number of scratches and dents. the worst being a small dent/puncture in the front RH fender.
The 1988 Defender 90 CSW V8 is fitted with the3.5L engine with Stromberg Carburettors . It has a 5-speed manual transmission which can be used in either high range or low range when driving off road. It has a mechanically locking center differential that can be locked when using low range gearing.
