1968 Land Rover Defender

Thanks for your interest in the Land Rover. This car was sourced early last year in Colombia. It is legally imported, titled, and registered (FL). The mileage is unknown since the odometer only reads 5 digits, currently at ~40k KMs. It was restored by its previous owner within the last 3-4 years. The previous restoration included a body off paint job and a chassis coating with an anti-corrosive material. New custom fiberglass hard-top. New wiring harness throughout, new upholstery, and a mechanical overhaul (brakes, carb rebuild, suspension). Since I bought the car, I had the engine rebuilt, installed new battery, and went through the mechanical parts to ensure it was in good condition. All 4 tires are brand new General Tire 7.5x16.
The car is in very good running condition, starts on the first try and rides as it should. All original, matching numbers 4 cylinder 2.25L gasoline engine. The 4x4 drive is fully functional. A few things that need to be revised include the original fuel gauge which stopped working and a repair to the rear fender which was recently hit while parked (pictured). I received an estimate of$1,500to repair from a local shop. Being where the car is located those prices are on the higher end.
Asking price is $18,000 and open to serious offers only.The car is currently stored at Georgica Services, which is a specialized classic car service and restoration shop. 139 Springs Fireplace Rd East Hampton NY 11937. I have no connection to Georgica Services, only for storage and help with sale paperwork. They have not inspected the vehicle before, and would be a non-biased option for a third party inspection.
