With sadness, I'm selling my 90 that I brought over from the UK two years ago. It's legal, drives great, but isn't getting driven much due to the extortionate cost of parking in New York City. It's currently sitting at my parent's house in Guilford, CT and they take it out once a month, and I also drive it about once a month.
Happy to chat on it at length, but ultimately am accepting offers since I've got my eyes on a vintage BMW motorcycle to replace it, which I can more easily park in NYC. I listed the Land Rover for $39,000 on AutoTrader (seen there as a 1993 Defender since the 1988 didn't exist as an option), but reduced it to $35,000 if you want to search for photos.
1988 Land Rover 90 ("Defender")

I have full documentation on the shipping, and have documented all my maintenance. The truck does have rust, which I have touched up. In 2015, I fitted brand new tires/tyres, carpeted the full interior, and installed a simple iPhone/Android hookup for a stereo, so it is quite new feeling. Looks & drives great, Must see, Non-smoker, Upgraded sound system. The bucket seats in front are like new, and there is a single bench in back.
Please do your research, and email me with any interest!
