Post Beluga Black D90 with Red Dash

Anyone ever seen a Beluga Black D90 with red door handle (the internal plate below the handle) and red paint below the black paint on the top rail of the dash (below the vents)? I found one for sale, but am concerned why this paint appears different. The rest of the truck appear sblack all the way through - bulkhead, under the mats, inner fenders, etc.

Where is it for sale? Is it a 1995 with about 56,000 miles? I think it has a fiberglass hardtop.

It is on Ebay right now... Item number: 220104374602. Someone may have done this as an accent. I am sure you could check the Vin and find out the original color. Maybe Carfax or a LR dealer. If it were repainted, I am sure the they would have painted inside the handle, especially if they painted the bulkhead and etc.

I checked it out at the land rover FAQ web page last week, and black is the original color. It made me wonder as well. I don't get it, but I don't get what I lot of people do to Defenders.

was never owned by copley.
i was going to buy it a month or so ago, but could not figure out the red also.
it was actully posted here from another member.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a gentleman here in town who is looking to sell his 1995 Defender 90 Soft Top. It is Black and has 54,000 original miles. It has the fiberglass hardtop, however he says the soft-top is in pretty bad condition and would need to be replaced. The fellow came in my restaurant because he noticed my 90 parked out front and after a short conversation said he was going to sell it. I offered to put it on here for him, thus you can email me if you are interested and I will provide his contact information.

I have only seen the vehicle once, and it was raining. Truck looked nice. Pretty much stock. Upgraded stereo and speakers. Headlight switch needs to be replaced. Rear seat and A/C. I stand to gain nothing financially from this post. I am just listing this as a favor to a fellow d90 owner.

I will be happy to check the vehicle over for anyone interested. I'm no mechanic, but I have owned 5 of these things and could give an honest 3rd party opinion.

Asking $30,900.

Yep, that is the one I posted for sale a couple of months ago. I know the previous owner if anyone is interested or has any specific questions. I also know what that dealer paid for the vehicle!

Looking to buy Black D90

I am thinking about buying this D90 and if you know the prior owner, please let me know if he had any mechanical or other issues with it and why there were certain parts painted red (if he knows). It seems to drive very well and everything appears to work. The fiberglass top has 3 cracks in it, one of them major. The AC is strong, and it is going to need gasket replacements on the eads, transmission, one of the differentials, etc. What did he sell it for, and did he sell it to this dealer direct or thru another party?
