1986 Land Rover Defender

Vin: SALLDVAC7AA244206

Drive, 2.5 Liter 4 Cylinder NA Diesel, 98000 miles. This is a diesel, these aren't even considered "broken in" until 150000+

This thing absolutely rocks.

Please make sure to read ALL of the below as I've done so much to the vehicle. I have paperwork in recent repairs.

Engine Runs Great and was serviced in April 2018 (Oil Change, Filters swapped out, timing adjusted, new clutch cable, clutch fluid, hand break cable was twisted, new ejector pump, starter, ignition switch, exhaust system replacement, new radiator,etc i can email you over the shop receipt)

I've replaced all the plastic trim, or rubber seals (official land rover), door seals throughout the vehicle. The head gasket was replaced in 201&

Entire Breaking System and radiator was replaced in 2016. Truck has been lifted an additional 6 inches

Yokohama Geolander A/T-S On/Off-Road Tires 285/75R16 122R Tires are only one year old. Spare is brand new.

Usual rust in usual areas on a 32 year old truck. Being kept Garaged and in California the last few years has helped! No rust in footwells etc.

Paint Job in 2016

$4,500 interior carpeting, sound proofing, custom door panels, dash, custom roof trim and interior metal surface painting (I can email over receipt)

$11,500 in new LED lights, SURCO and THULE roof rack, 6" Apollo Pro KC explorer halogens, Masai skid plates, side steps, air intakes, spare wheel mount.

CB Radio cable is set up underneath the vehicle. Comes with NEW uninstalled Cobra CB radio, mount, antennas and exterior speaker.

Comes with LAMPHUS 100W Siren, Truck Horn (this is by far my favorite thing) and Loud Speaker

12V output mounted on the exterior left rear. Excellent Outlet Access for camping needs, or exterior lighting.

$3500 in Masai Panoramic Tinted Windows with "seamless" rear windows imported from the UK. Unbelievable head turner. All the rage in Europe right now, rare in the USA.

The transfer case / gear box are in good condition.

Original steering wheel, gear stick and diff lock. Original rubber seals in good coniditon.

Brand new seats installed 1 months ago AND

x2 Cameras (with night vision) mounted on the vehicle. 1. Rear 2. Left side blind spot. These connected into the rear view mirror and has two channels for other inputs if desired.

Satellite Radio Antenna mounted to Hood. Looks like a mini snorkel.

British Military Kill Switch Installed under the passenger seat that links to Military Grade Battery. This is great for a bunch of reasons 1. Never get a flat battery again 2. Take the key with you and no one can start the truck, 3. Looks cool.

New Windscreen installed 2016 (new seals too)

Lucky 8 Extra Large Off Road Fender Flares installed and I'll also throw in BRAND NEW LR Standard Fender Flares incase you don't like how wide they are

Tow bar in good condition (I,e minor rust, non structural damage) new face plate installed December 2017

Interior roof light has been switch from basic bulb to LED.

Cool Air Flaps have been taken apart and re-installed fully re-greased and open and close easily without sticking (classic defender issue)

New windshield whiter motors and blades last month.

Comes with a bunch of extras, like, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, individual LED light grills (not installed), additional LED steel guard for right side (not installed), various parts, res cables, trim accessories, new oil filters,

Here's what I would do finish it.


Passenger door lock needs some attention as it does occasionally stick when unlocking. Honestly, I'd just replace the lock cylinder (it'll cost $30 from Rovers North USA)

Rear door needs new lock cylinder (it'll cost $30 from Rovers North USA - the door does lock though!)

Rear Windshield Wiper motor new remounted, I have it but just haven't got around to, plus living in California I've never needed it)
