1995 Land Rover Discovery 1 200TDI w/R380

It's time to part ways with my 1995 Land Rover Discovery 1 w/ 200tdi and R380 5-speed manual. Located in the Clear Lake Area of Houston, TX



I've had the Disco for about a year and a half, and drive it 2-3 times a week to work, and on weekend camping/wheelin' trips in the hill country. Currently in the Clear Lake Area of Houston, TX.

I planned to keep this beast forever. My wife and her tendency to produce offspring has other plans. We are now building a house and i don't need a 3rd (cough) 4th vehicle.

Spent almost all its life in Texas. I bought it from a buy in Mass. Though, he only had it a few years. The PO before him did the conversion. The engine is a re-sealed ex-MoD engine, and runs like a top. Starts INSTANTLY, and has never left me stranded, or not started, etc. If you don't mind cruising at 65 mph, i would drive it across country. I've taken numerous 600-700 mile trips, and never had a single issue. I get about 22-26 mpg, depending on my foot.

The owner that did the conversation took his time to find a rust-free, Discovery 1 with manual cloth seats and no Sunroof to keep things as simple as possible. Vehicle does not leak from any window seals, etc. I've had to park it outside since i owned it, and never a single drop gets inside. All electric windows, mirrors, etc. work perfect. Keyless entry, alarm, homelink garage opener etc.

Contact me for additional HiRes photos. I can also take additional photos upon request, just tell me what and where. I want to be completely transparent with the transaction, and look for a quick and easy cash sell.

Minor Issues:
- AC needs a recharge. The main components are not leaking, but the two large compression fittings that screw into the compressor work loose over time(diesel vibrations i'm sure). I did an evac/recharge and changed receiver/dryer last summer, blew ice cold. Just noticed it was low again a few weeks ago after it got warm here on the coast.
- The truck will steer to the left under hard braking. Probably needs a new or rebuilt caliper. I just learned to live with it and doesn't affect daily driving.
- Steering box leaks slightly. I added Lucas power steering leak-stop (one of the only snake-oils i actually believe in) and it slowed enough to not even worry about it. I've had to re-add maybe 1/3 of a bottle since i first did it over a year ago. Steers fine.
- The clutch seems to slip under certain conditions. It's only in higher gear, under hard acceleration, and only when engine has been fully warmed for a while. It could possibly be the crank shaft seal that is spraying a fine oil-mist into bell housing/clutch?? It's always kind of done it, and i just live with it. It is NEVER an issue when in low-range, or crawling around in low gears. Worst case it needs a clutch. It hasn't gotten any worse since i owned it, so i'm just used to it when it happens.
- Drips/seeps a little oil, as all diesels and/or British Vehicles do. Doesn't seem to burn any. I add MAYBE a half of a quart of oil between changes (4-5k mikes). Which is really exceptional.
- lastly, some of the doors won't auto-lock or unlock with the key-less entry. It comes and goes. they all work manually if needed. Most importantly, the drivers door ALWAYS locks/unlocks with remote.

 200tDi Ex-MoD re-sealed Engine from the U.K. (fires INSTANTLY)
 R380 5-speed manual that shifts perfectly; Diff lock and Low-range shift easily
 NO rust. Has been in the Lone Star State most of its life
 Manual cloth seats; No Sunroofs; No rain-related leaks of any kind
 ARB front bumper with 9.5k TigerShark Winch (pulled out many Jeeps)
 Very desirable "Saudi Grill"
 HD front springs for added weight
 All fluids recently changed; Lucas Synthetic Oil in Diffs, Transfer Case and Swivel Hubs; Reline in Trans
 Brand new Head-liner (perfect); won't ever sag again. . .
 Newer cross-drilled brake rotors
 Custom low-profile sliders bolted to frame; heavy duty
 All new component speakers (OEM grills), low-pro 10" sub and Kenwood head-unit (green lights)
 Custom Magnaflow exhaust; low-profile and out of the way; sounds great
 4 aux VDO™ gauges installed; EGT, Turbo Boost, Water Temp and Voltage
 OEM Land Rover Full Coverage rubber matts ($$)
 Wilderness basket roof rack (can accommodate tent); w/ OEM ladder; HiLift Jack mounted/included
 Hella Fog Light on front Bar (use factory fog-light switch on center console)
 Uniden Radio between seats with Firestick antennae mounted to spare bracket
 All electric windows work as they should, and are tinted (looks great on white Disco)
 Spectre in-line air filter install and piped up to fender to prep snorkel install
 Keyless entry works, and one remote and 3 spare keys included; HomeLink Garage Door opener
 New Belts (all three); New AC Receiver/Dryer; New Clutch Slave Cylinder; new viscous Fan clutch; more
 Sylvania SilverStar Headlight bulbs installed
 Garmin (older) hard-wired to upper console
 Misc. Quick-fists with Shovel and Axe (included)
 ABS works great, and can be disabled with a pull of the fuse if desired (unlike D2)
 No warning lights, runs perfect, never a single issue, has always started instantly
 BFG tires have 50+% left, but getting a little old. Plenty of life in them.
 Factory Jack, wheels chocks, and tool kit
 Many spares included; all belts (Gates), Roto-flex coupling, Water pump, Gaskets, Misc. Coolant hoses, Filters; binders of Info, schematics and engine/trans install procedure; and of course, Title in Hand.

Over-all this is an awesome vehicle in amazing shape. It's largely still original. It is a beast as-is, but can really be a great, solid, rust-free starting point to make the Off-roader of your dreams, the way YOU want it.

Asking $11,900.00 but open to reasonable cash offers. Looking for transparent, quick and easy transaction.

Please email for further information and my contact information.

Regards,
Jonny B.

Well of course, I'll take a bunch of photos of the truck, print them on 4x6" paper and frame them, then throw all the frames in the back of the truck. $35k, no questions asked.
