1988 Land Rover Defender 90 Soft Top

Very nice refurbed 1988 Defender 90 soft top build. Left hand drive truck with a 200 Tdi motor and LT77 gear box ready for your summer adventure.
Started with a blue 90 hard top and went to work! Stripped the truck down and repaired or replaced almost everything. Installed new roll bars, new seats, sanded and painted interior in Alpine White. New front exmoor seating as well full carpeting throughout. New center console cubby.
Frame solid all the way from end to end. No patches, rust or other issues. We sanded the frame down and fully coated it for long term protection. Same with the axles. New oil lines, brakes and brake lines and exhaust. We patched a small part of the passenger side foot well that was very minor and will not be a future issue.
We removed the original 19J 2.5 TD motor and replaced it with a Discovery born solid running 200 Tdi motor. Donor truck and motor had about 80k miles on it. Motor received new timing belt as well as general refresh and service. Starts immediately on the first turn and settles into a nice idle. No abnormal sounds, smoke or otherwise. Truck accelerates and pulls better than most and smoothly shifts up and down thru all the gears as it should. Again, no odd sounds, shakes or otherwise. Transfer case works as it should as well.
New puma style doors with new bits and pieces close very easily and tightly. Dash is straight and clean. One minor straight line repair and that is it. We installed a new, quality sound system with Pioneer bluetooth head unit, app, 4 speakers and small subwoofer to fill out the sound. You can be doing highway speeds with the top down and still enjoy your favorite tunes! black soft top fits snugly and shows minimal wear.With four new black steel wheels and new all terrain tires, you can head to the trails or the office with complete confidence.
This one is an exceptional, unique build is ready for your summer cruises and next adventure. I do have a few videos that I can email as well if you would like. We have clear Virginia title and all correct, stamped customs documents. This is our 121 imported truck so we have the process down. :)
Please let me know me if you have any additional questions.Thanks!
