CONDITION AND ANYTHING ELSE YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW:-It is a clean Defender for it's age and has been babied since I have been the owner.-The SU carbs are nicely synced and function well. They sound great when driving.-Both headlights, all gauge lights, break lights, indicator lights, rear fog light, and ceiling courtesy light works.-I keep it on a battery tender when not in use as the clock seems to run the battery down over long periods of sitting.-All windows roll down and slide with no issues.-Once warmed up, it idles fine and stays right around 13V. It also restarts with a turn of the key when warm.-If the engine is cold it has an intermittent start. Sometimes you need to turn the key to the accessory position a few times before starting.-It has a manual choke.-It likes to cruise right around 55mph.-4-wheel high, low, and lock all work.-The body has some dings and dents consistent with age and use. The top of each fender has small dents.-To be picky, the bonnet and roof could use a repaint or keep as is.

LASTLY:In my opinion, it takes a certain type of person to own a Land Rover Defender. If you like the smell of a carborated engine, taking your truck to the car wash, want something that very few people have, and like wrenching on vehicles....this is for you.The Defender's rugged look, feel, and capability is unparalleled. There is nothing that looks like one of these. The stares, compliments, and thumbs up you get when driving is amazing. You are the envy of off roaders, campers, or simply people that like looking good.Prices on Defenders in the US range from around 10k all the way up to 150k. The lower end being ones in rough shape that still need to be imported from overseas. (do you really want to import one?) The upper end being 4-door NAS that have been completely restored. If you take a look at what is currently up for sale, this one is priced just right. It is being sold to the US from the US. I have owned it for 8 years and am located about 25 minutes east of Columbus Ohio.As you can tell from my feedback, I believe in full disclosure. I have listed everything the best I can. It is very important to me that you make an informed decision and are happy with your purchase. Please do not purchase if you do not intend to follow through, if you do not have enough money, are not pre-approved, don't want to deal with shipping, can't find the time to pick it up or work with a shipper, have not approved the purchase with your wife, etc. Please please please...serious buyer only.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ ALL OF THE ABOVE BEFORE BUYING. PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE PURCHASE. I CAN TAKE MORE PHOTOS OF JUST ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT (underside, top, etc)....JUST LET ME KNOW. I would be willing to assist with loading of the vehicle. It is recommended but not required that you see the vehicle first hand before purchase.This is a classic car and doesnt have a warranty.Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. It usually costs buyers approximately $1200 to ship across country...less if within a few states. US buyers only in the lower 48 only please. Payment must clear before truck ships.
