1995 NAS Land Rover Defender 90 219/500 - $56k

*Detailed photos still to come.

Introduction
I never thought this day would come. Like many of you, I had every intention to keep this Defender forever. The need for a rear seat is the main driving factor for this sale. My boys want to come on my adventures and the Defender only has two seats. I love this truck and to say that I am sad to see it go is an understatement.

This truck attracts attention. If you’re not comfortable with it, don't buy it. Occasionally people will wave, give thumbs up out the window while driving on the freeway, walk into telephone poles or blow kisses at you. It’s a real head-turner. Get used to it. The body color is Bronze Green and Limestone. Although this color combination looks great and gets a lot of comments, it is not the original color of the vehicle. The truck was originally Arles Blue.

This is not a creampuff garage queen. It has been places. It has gone off road. It has dings, dents, flaking paint and brush rash. That said, I have spared no expense keeping it in perfect mechanical running condition. All known imperfections have been taken into account when pricing this vehicle. I have a slight case of OCD and am extremely detail oriented. You could call me an obsessive parts-replacer. I have spared no expense to ensure that the vehicle is kept in mechanically perfect condition.

Although I am posting this up for sale now, it is not quite yet ready for delivery. I need time to get it ready. Please expect 4-6 weeks before delivery. I will post up more detailed photos of the interior and exterior of the truck as they become available. I know that I will deeply regret selling this Defender so I am including the stipulation of FRR (First Right of Refusal) in the sale of this vehicle. If the next owner ever decides to sell this truck, I have first right of refusal.

History
Number 219 has a unique history. It was purchased in 1996 at a dealership as a brand new 1995 NAS Defender 90. This vehicle is rare, not just because it had a brand new 300tdi installed in 2004, but because Rovers North performed the installation. I have all the paperwork for it. $24,000 was spent on the engine and transmission swap. This particular 300tdi engine is also unique in that it was one of the last 300tdi engines to come off the assembly line in South America before production ended in 2006. It was brand spanking new when it was installed. As of today the engine and R380 drivetrain only has 70k miles on it. Axles and transfer case has 114k.

I have tracked milage and fuel economy for the entire length of my ownership. The fuel economy of his 300tdi averages around 15.5 mpg in the city and 21.9 on highway. Once on a downhill with headwind, in a hurricane I got 28.7 mpg. When I purchased it in 2008 I had the chassis steam cleaned and Waxoyled. Inside the chassis as well as inside all doors. The chassis is in excellent condition and completely rust free. There's a rust spot inside the rear crossmember on the right hand side, as with most Defenders this age, by poor design unfortunately. To the best of my knowledge all known imperfections are listed below.

In 2012 I replaced the timing belt and in 2013 I installed a ceramic coated Garrett GT-22 VNT Turbo and ceramic coated manifold and down-pipe. The truck got new shoes in 2015. In 2016 I installed an Allisport full width aluminum radiator and intercooler assembly which, besides the weight savings, keeps the engine at perfect running temperature over long drives, regardless of conditions. Last year I also installed two amazing Scheel-Mann seats which are, without question the most comfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. They are worth every penny. These seats are the Land Rover Edition, so the seat base hinges up for seat box access.

70k on engine and drivetrain since new.
114k on axles and transfer case

Always sad to hear when selling at the crossroads but life changes tend to get their way. A lot of work went into this one. Good call on the FRRefusal. GLWTS Carl.

This is an awesome truck, I've seen it in person numerous times-If I needed a 90, this is what I would drop my cash on. Sorry to see it go Carl.

Undercarriage Photos

I know I'm moving at a snails pace but here's the first batch of undercarriage photos. I wiped off some grime so that you would be able to see the Waxoyl still on the frame. The brown stuff is dust sticking to the waxoyl, not rust! I replaced the exhaust a few years ago with a Magnaflow, 2.5" exhaust. As you can see in the images I had the down pipe and exhaust manifold ceramic coated (black). The turbo is ceramic coated as well (silver/black, for cooling/insulating properties). The front diff is green because it is a Green Basin Rovers install with a Truetrack/Detroit Soft Locker. It works really well and you can hear it working when you're in a sticky situation. Suspension is new and an extra set of Medium Duty springs are included. Currently installed is Heavy duty suspension in both front and rear. Lots more photos to come (interior, exterior and under carriage) so please bear with me. I am posting it up here for you first but I will eventually list to on Fleabay and Craigslist also. Lots of new parts everywhere. Let me know if you have a question about anything and if you have any specific photo requests.

Photo Update & new price

Finally some proper photos. I have more photos than I can post here so PM me if you want me to send them to you. The tub has a shelf that I designed and had fabricated. It fits into existing tub mounts, sits flush with the lower edge of the gull-wing windows and it can be removed easily. I also just posted this truck on eBay so I'm hereby lowering the price for forum members to $55,000. I'd much rather see the truck go to a forum community member.

Price Drop! $53,000

I'm gradually starting to get more comfortable with the idea of parting with this amazing truck so I have dropped the price for forum members to $53,000. It is currently listed on eBay for $54,000 and will be on Craigslist for the same amount. I'd much prefer if the truck ended up with a forum member. Lots more pictures available. Due to the price drop, the JW Speaker LED Headlights will NOT be included in the sale.

Dropping the price to $45,500.

The rear shelf has been removed and I have installed interior window trim around the gullwing window. Updated photos to come.
