1985 90 d *** LHD**AC** $ 18,500

Just came in from Europe.


All original 1985 90 Diesel, Left Hand Drive


This car has a factory AC system, I have never seen that before on a 90 from the eighties. I have to say though, it is only blowing cold air because of the cold winter here. As far as I can see it is not missing any parts and maybe only needs a charge.

The body is straight and no dents except one in the sill under the door. Paint is all original, nice patina, some scratches, a tittle bit faded but it totally fits the character of this car.



Car has done 300 K km ( appr 190 K miles). I am pretty sure the engine had a overhaul. It is really nice running, easy starting even in this cold winter. Gearbox is shifting fine and it wouldn't surprise me if this has been replaced too somewhere in its live. This car is driving better then you expect from a car with this mileage.


The good:
- all original
- nice interior, headliner, seats
- frame all solid, rear cross member replaced
- newer alloys
- power steering
- everything is working fine
- no excessive smoke
- transmission and clutch working like they should work
- water pump, timing belt, injection pump replaced 1500 miles ago
- tires 50%, spare is new


The bad:
- both foot wells have some rust, it will be repaired in the next days.
- door frames have been repaired in the past, solid but you can see they are repaired
- there are some minor oil leaks, nothing major.



Nice: I found the original factory work sheet in the car.


At this moment it is a two seater. For an additional $ 500 I can add matching seats in the back.



Car comes will all the import documents, and price includes clear MI title.

If only I could go back in time two years and save my money for one of the vehicles you sell. I'm happy with what I've got, but every time you post something like this I get buyer's remorse!

Good luck with your sale!

I just bought from the man himself and I feel the same way! But johan gave me a good deal so I'm content.

This is a nice car and a deal. Congrats to whichever one gets it!

Johan, has Tim England from VA connected with you on this yet? I can PM you his contacts if you needed. He's been looking for a nice 90.

Bump.


Am I asking too much ?


I will consider offers but no low balls, I am not desperate and don't have to sell


Just want to make room for a few 110's coming in.

Looks like the market for the D90's has dropped off. Seems everybody wants a 110.

I think there seem to be a lot of 80s Defenders in the US market tight now. I see more 80s Defenders than I've ever seen. However few seem to be LHD which is an advantage for Johan and anyone selling those. Another big factor would be the trustworthiness of the seller.

Johan, you may want to market your craft a bit more if you can so that people know they have the added value of a stand up guy when dealing with you. You probably don't have to list all the trucks you've imported and sold, but perhaps mentioning the experience you have, number of years working with rovers, offering references. Anyway... just thinking out loud here.

Maybe all you need is a fresh listing for this truck and some new pictures.

Not by much, but a couple of thoughts-

The main reason folks go the 110 route is carrying/seating capacity. I'd add the 4 rera jump seats & then you can advertise it as a 6 seater. Yolu might throw a cheap roof rack on too?

Other problem I see is that it doesn't have a very good engine. I doubt the numbers would work out to put a 200Tdi in it, but if it did have a 200Tdi (and working A/C) I would think you'd be into the $20k's, especially with the jump seats.

GLWS!

Johan. Sent you a message on this truck. Were you able to get the floorboards cleaned up? Interested in learning more about her.

Thx
