1987 Land Rover Defender 90 w/200Tdi
NOTE: THIS VEHICLE IS LOCATED IN DENIA, SPAIN, but I ship to the USA. Please check my feedback, and please read the entire listing before bidding.
I am an American, living in Spain, and I sell and export vehicles to the USA regularly. Although shipping costs are not included in the price of the sale, I work every month with an established worldwide shipper and will work directly with the buyer to arrange delivery to the USA. I will drop the vehicle off at the port of Valencia for you at no additional cost, prepare all the proper documentation for shipping to the USA, and handle all the US customs and importation on the USA side.
If you would like me to handle the shipping, customs paperwork, and everything for you, the cost is a flat-rate of $2500, port-to-port, to your choice of Norfolk, VA or Houston, TX. No additional costs. No work on your part. You just pick the car up from the port, fully cleared and released. NOTE: Many other ports are available at additional cost, including ports on the west coast of the United States and all three major ports in Canada. Inquire for details.
Once the vehicle is in your possession, you will also have all the documents you need to register the car in 49 states (California excepted). I can even arrange transportation within the USA, from the port to your driveway. In short, I am here to help with every step of the process of delivering this vehicle to you.
You are of course welcome to fly here and test the car for yourself before you bid, but if that is not feasible, I will be happy to take additional photos, videos, etc. and send them to you. Whatever you need. We can speak on the telephone, or by Skype, so you can see the vehicle in real time before you bid.
If you have any questions, please ask and I will post as many answers here as possible.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?The culmination of our latest efforts, this 1987 Defender 90 is a brawny, bold and fantastically capable truck that looks the way we like Defenders to look and has the muscle to back up its aggressive appearance.
Rust free and straight when we bought it, we completely disassembled and stripped the truck before respraying it in Davos White (a creamy white also called “Chamonix White” and “Ivory” by Land Rover in different years) with a Beluga Black roof and full exoskeleton roll cage. A 2” lift by Ironman and massive 255/85-16 Toyo Open Country MT tires fill out larger fender flares, and a bespoke aluminum grille frames the heavy-duty winch by Dragon. LED lights front and rear have been installed, and a quartet of driving lights sit atop the windscreen.
Inside, the interior has been redone in a perforated black with white quilted stitching and white piping, and hand-cut black carpeting has been fitted throughout the front compartment. A center console incorporates twin cupholders and the cubby box lid has been upholstered to match the seats. In the rear, twin bench jump seats have been recovered to match, and a carpeted mat covers the floor.
Underneath, the chassis is straight and entirely free of structural rust, with longitudinals, crossmembers, bulkheads, floors and doors all clean and damage free.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO DRIVE?In short, it’s a monster.
With low original miles on the chassis and even fewer on the engine, it fires easily, idles smoothly and quietly with no smoke, and makes great power throughout the rev range. With a known service history from new, this is a very correct D90, and the transplanted 200Tdi engine was fitted at an official Land Rover dealership in 1992. A variable geometry turbocharger was added, producing excellent throttle response and a big hit of midrange torque, allowing it to run with modern traffic on tarmac and power through or over anything you might encounter off road.
The gearchange is light and direct, the brakes are powerful and stop the truck from any speed without drama, and the power steering is quiet and positive. The new suspension components, surprisingly composed and comfortable on roadways, also give it astonishing clearance and capability in the rough stuff, allowing this D90 to be used for legitimate exploration and overland use in uniquely harsh environments.
Everything works, the truck has been fully serviced, and it needs nothing for daily use except a new owner who will appreciate it and use it in the manner in which we intended it to be used.
