Thumbs up 1984 Land Rover 90 TDI w/ Galvy Chassis

Located in Raleigh/Durham, NC.
Asking $14,900 obo


Almost 50 pictures at the following address: http://s292.photobucket.com/albums/mm29/buyrovers/84%20Defender%20Truck%20Cab/

This 90 was rebuilt around 18 months ago to be reliable and strong, money was not wasted on making it pretty. It has very presentable body work, with one pretty standard crease behind the left rear wheel. Otherwise the body is very straight. The pick-up cab top is dented (cab sides are very straight, top is dented), but it seems like it would straighten out pretty good with no real stretched aluminum.

REBUILD DETAILS:
- New galvanized chassis
- Recon front axle and a rear (Salisbury) axle!
- New springs/shocks/polly bushes etc...
- Wolf rims and 235/85r16 BFG M/T'S (90%)
- Disc brakes all round (new discs/pads/calipers)
- Power steering (recon box/drop arm/pump....)
- LT77 trans was built using a new main shaft etc..
- Recon transfer box was built using a new input gear so its as strong as it can be with no "clonk" on uptake when changing gear
- Custom prop was made to mate to the Salisbury back axle, new prop used for the front
- Daihatsu 2.8 TDI installed using a UK "off the shelf" kit
- New clutch
- New cam belt
- Bulkhead replaced with a solid example
- A pair of nice (but not perfect) push button doors
- A pair of very nice low mileage seats were fitted (OE grey vinyl)
- Nice c/d player
- Also comes with an iFor Williams aluminum bed topper




ON THE ROAD
This 90 runs very strong. Much better acceleration than my 200TDI 90. It is a very smooth running diesel. Steering is responsive and nice and tight. I drove it from Charleston, SC to Raleigh, NC (4.5 hours) just the other day with no problem. Will easily cruise at 75+ with tons more left if you want it to go faster.

I'd love to see a better pic of the bulkhead mods to fit the stock turbo in a RHD truck.

Buyrovers left it at my place for a couple days and I got to check this truck out. As far as the RHD goes, two days of driving one and you will wonder why the steering wheel isnt on that side in every car. For some reason it just seems more logical. Plus, I think there is more room for the driver on a RHD and it makes it damn easy to check the mailbox. She may not look like a stunner but the pickup cab gets the cool points for sure and on the road that diesel is a BEAST.

I dont remember seeing any mods to the bulkhead on this truck. I could be wrong though, as every aspect of the truck is a mod in one sense or another.

The bulkhead needs to have a cut out in order to clear the turbo which is low and rearward on the passenger side of a RHD vehicle. The solution on a LHD truck like mine is a custom exhaust manifold to move it high and foreward.
I have a copy of the complete techical manual for this engine that I will make available to the buyer.
