Description

***FOR SALE IS A 1985 LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90. 2.5 LTR NA DIESEL. VIN# SALLDVAC7AA228178.***
THIS DEFENDER WAS LEGALLY IMPORTED FROM THE UK AND HAS ALREADY BEEN RE-TITLED HERE IN THE US. HAS CLEAN ARKANSAS TITLE IN MY NAME AND CURRENTLY REGISTERED, TAGS GOOD TILL OCT 2015. 125K MILES. RUNS AND DRIVES EXCELLENT. RIGHT HAND DRIVE (RHD).
****EBAY DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE UK VIN, PLEASE BE ADVISED TRUCK IS A 1985, NOT 1980.
ENGINE:
2.5 LTR NA DIESEL WITH LT77 FIVE SPEED MANUAL GEARBOX. ENGINE RUNS STRONG AND ALL GEARS SHIFT SMOOTHLY. THE ENGINE HAS BEEN WELL TAKEN CARE OF AND IS QUITE CLEAN FOR A 30 YEAR TRUCK. THE TRANSFER CASE SHIFTS IN AND OUT OF HIGH TO LOW AND INTO CENTER DIFF LOCK MODE NICELY.
FRAME AND BULKHEAD:
NO MAJOR RUST AND NO ROT. PREVIOUS OWNER HAD THE UNDERCARRIAGE SPRAYED WITH SOME SORT OF PROTECTIVE COATING. THE BULKHEAD HAS VERY MINOR SURFACE OXIDATION. HOWEVER, NONE OF THIS RUST WILL BE ANY SORT OF AN ISSUE FOR A VERY LONG TIME WITH PROPER CARE AND MAINTENANCE. REAR CROSS MEMBER IS SOLID.
RECENT SERVICE:
REAR WHEEL SEAL HAS BEEN REPLACED. REAR BEARINGS REPACKED. COOLANT FLUSH. TRANSFER BOX AND GEARBOX FLUIDS CHANGED. OIL CHANGED. UNDERSIDE OF HOOD HAS NEW SOUND PROOFING/HEAT MAT AND PAINT.
EXTERIOR:
PAINT IS FAIR. RUNNING BOARDS, SIDE MIRRORS, WHEEL ARCHES AND BASEBOARDS WERE SANDED AND PAINTED THE MIDNIGHT METALLIC BLACK. THE BUMPER HAS BEEN RE-SPRAYED WITH A SEMI GLOSS BLACK AND CLEAR COAT. TRUCK HAS A FRAME BAR WITH WORKING OFF ROAD LIGHTS. FULL SPARE WITH TIRE COVER. TIRES ARE KUMHO AND ARE QUITE NEW. 70-80% TREAD LEFT ON ALL 4 TIRES.
INTERIOR:
TRUCK HAS EXMOOR BUCKET SEATS WITH LAND ROVER LOGO AND ARE VERY SLIGHTLY WORN. A FOLD DOWN JUMP IS IN THE BACK AND IS ALMOST NEW. TRUCK HAS CHECKER PLATED CARGO AREA. HEATER WORKS. NO AIR CONDITIONING. FRESHLY RESTORED DASHBOARD HAS BEEN PAINTED FLAT BLACK AND MIDNIGHT METALLIC BLACK. IT LOOKS MUCH NICER THAN THE ORIGINAL GREY COLOR. THE REAR CARGO AREA HAS TWO CUSTOM LOCKABLE STORAGE BINS. ONE LARGE AND ONE SMALL WITH PULLOUT TRAYS. TRUCK IS WIRED FOR A STEREO BUT CURRENTLY DOESN'T HAVE HEAD UNIT. I MAY ADD A STEREO WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS, IF SO, I WILL UPDATE LISTING. REAR DEFROST WORKS. WINDSHIELD WIPERS WORK AND TRUCK HAS REAR WIPER AS WELL. REAR BULKHEAD HAS ALSO BEEN PAINTED MIDNIGHT METALLIC BLACK.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
MOST DEFENDERS THAT ARE IMPORTED NEED A LOT OF WORK AND RESTORATION AND THEY ARE NORMALLY PROJECT VEHICLES. THIS DEFENDER IS NOT ONE OF THOSE DEFENDERS!!!!! THIS TRUCK IS READY TO GO, DRIVES GREAT AND ALWAYS STARTS. TAKE IT HUNTING OFF ROAD OR CRUISE TO THE BAR, ITS ALWAYS A CONVERSATION PIECE. I LOVE THIS TRUCK BUT I NEED TO SELL IT. WIFE SAYS I HAVE TOO MANY LAND ROVERS. I DRIVE IT ALL AROUND TOWN AND CRUISE THE BACK COUNTRY ROADS AND IT IS SO MUCH FUN TO DRIVE. THE TRUCK HAS POWER STEERING AND IS EASY TO CONTROL. I NORMALLY DON'T TAKE IT OUT ON THE FREEWAY CAUSE THE SPEED TOPS OUT AT ABOUT 60-65MPH. OFF ROAD IT GOES ANYWHERE, SUSPENSION IS FIRM AND GOES THROUGH ANYTHING (ITS A DEFENDER!!!). TRUCK GETS GREAT GAS MILEAGE AND I CAN GO OVER 200 MILES ON A CHEAP TANK OF DIESEL.
PLEASE NOTE: BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AND ALL SHIPPING COSTS. IF YOU DO LIVE IN NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, I WILL DELIVER IT TO YOU FOR FREE. I'VE TRIED TO REPRESENT THIS TRUCK TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR LET ME KNOW IF I FORGOT SOMETHING.****SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY!!!! WINNING BUYER WINS AND NON PAYERS WILL BE REPORTED TO EBAY. TRUCK IS ALSO FOR SALE LOCALLY SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE LISTING EARLY SHOULD THE TRUCK SELL HERE IN TOWN. $1000 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT DUE VIA PAYPAL WITHIN 48 HOURS OF AUCTION CLOSE. BALANCE DUE IN CASH ONLY WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION CLOSE.
