Hi no it's a 1987. It wouldn't be original if it had one of those. It also wouldn't be able to come into the states if that had been done. Although the 200tdi is a straight swap for this engine once there. The 200tdi is after all based upon the old 2.5.

Vegimite then? Do you have that? Maybe it should have been Peanut butter and Jelly then?
I have never been able to imagine the taste of that on a sandwich.
If you think vegimite quotes will work here then you've got bigger problems than shifting your truck! ;-)

PB&J is just peanut butter and jam ... Jelly in the UK is jello here ... 2 countries divided by a common language!

I'm sure, but one word of advice. When asking for opinions in such a format maybe tone down the argumentative know it all posture. I bet you'd have received less suggestions at your trolliness (new word I'm taking credit). You asked for opinions from a group with a lot of experience. You don't have to agree but what do you think you're going to get from arguing here???
Just an old guys opinion.

Hence my previous post, the keyboard cannot truly convey the intention at the time.

...KBX grill looks like a piano, middle bench seat dates the interior, steering wheel sticks out like a sore thumb, Rostyle rims are enthusiast rims not for most regular buyers (I like them, but I wouldn't put them on a car I was trying to sell) and the stickers, man, the stickers...

You've got a large "90" covering the rear quarter panel. You don't need that.

You've got "HUE 166" followed by a heritage Land Rover oval, followed by a giant "Turbo" sticker.

You're truck is starting to look like a single girl's Pinterest board. Too much. Edit it.

Eh OK.
Apart from the HUE Sticker on the back those are original Italian Spec stickers hence I didn't take them off. Tastes are different I guess. Opinion taken on board. Certainly a lot of purists on here.

The ultimate purist is the CBP officer deciding if the truck should be let into the U.S., sent back or destroyed. That is where pretty much everybody is coming from.
