1989 Land Rover Defender

In short, this is a great running smooth riding Land Rover 90 with a number of recent upgrades/repairs... and in a condition that shows it has been enjoyed for many years. It was legally imported 2-3 years ago from either Scotland/England, I am the second US owner (with North Carolina title in hand).

ImperfectionsWhat's not perfect? The frame had been previously repaired with a few patch welds. A new speedometer cable is needed, and possible a wiper switch. The original color was an army green, it had been repainted a number of years ago with a different shade... definitely not a $10k paint job but gets the job done (the top part of the roof is black). Little rust here and there, but overall in nice shape as the pictures show. The odometer is stuck at 206,469...it is not clear if this is even the original gauge cluster so I do not know the real mileage.
It's basically an honest 31 year old vehicle that hasn't gone through a restoration but has been updated periodically as needed. It starts right up no problem. The typical cloud of diesel exhaust fumes has been fixed. I'mlikely missing a number of other repairs, but not much is left mechanically other to enjoy the hell out of it.
