'84 D90 LHD Auto Conversion for sale

Finished this truck a few weeks back and is ready for sale. Turned out really, really well I think. More details below. Let me know if there are any questions. $33k.


Here is a 1984 Defender 90 that started with a 2.5 turbo diesel that needed replacement. So, we took a discovery donor truck and installed the 3.9L fuel injected V8 motor and transmission with auto Lokar shifter.

No rust, rot or any other structural problems. Truck is very, very clean. Doors, foot wells, frame, cross member and bulkhead are all as solid as can be. See photos. Looks to be a very minor repair on rear cross member but solid nonetheless.

Interior is in incredible shape and solid for being 32 years old. Pictures say it all. Metal is solid all the way around. Seating is in great shape. No tears or rips and is actually comfortable! Rear cargo area is clean and solid as well. Glass is clean and the rear windows are black glass. Some minor scratches here and there visible in photos but nothing serious.

All gauges work as they should as to all lights, signals, dome light, wipers and even the rear wiper.

Tires and wheels are in great shape as well. Wheels are smooth and shiny with no scuffs or issues. Tires are newer with 80% left. The wheels and tires really complete the look.

This truck runs, shifts and brakes great with no issues. List of motor work done below and was completed by local Master Land Rover Technician.

1) Removed Diesel engine and transmission.

2) Cut out diesel style engine mounts of frame and welded in v8 gas mounts to frame.

3) Remove v8 drive train from discovery

4) Removed fuel injection wiring harness from discovery.

5) Installed v8 drive train in defender.

6) Integrate v8 fuel injection harness to defender

7) Installed new ignition switch

8) Installed new fuel pump

9) Installed v8 style radiator with new hoses.

10) Modified diesel power steering lines to v8 gas system

11) Relocated chassis harness from inside frame rail to outside frame rail to clear v8 exhaust system

12) wired starting circuit to only start in park and neutral.

13) Reseal intake manifold gasket and valve cover gaskets.

14) Modified discovery hand brake to work with defender handle.

15) Installed new belt with a/c compressor delete.

16) installed new spark plugs, cap rotor, and spark plug wires.

17) All fluids changed

18) Installed aftermarket transmission cooler.

19) Installed aftermarket transmission shifter

20) Modified transmission tunnel to clear larger transmission.

21) Repaired speedo cable

22) Change transmission filter

23) New tail pipe / muffled installed

Bottom line, truck looks, feels and drives great. The reliable 3.9L fuel injected discovery motor is leaps and bounds better than the 2.5 diesel motors normally in these trucks. The motor swap was done completely and professionally. The truck is very clean, very sharp and most importantly, very, very solid. This is a beautiful, turnkey truck ready to go!

This looks like one of your better examples.

What's the story on that roof extension?

This was an 87 when Johan listed it. Was he off or has the year changed?

Or completely different truck. If so sorry for the question

Fwiw I saw this truck Wed night. Devin is driving it as his daily until it sells. It is in very good condition. Drew did all the work-nuff said.

Lowered the price a bunch here if anyone is interested. Have another project I am moving on to and would like to let someone enjoy this rig. It is an incredible ride and build, in my biased opinion! Thanks.

How well dos the Lokar work for you. I did the same drivetrain transplant and am so tempted by the mod.
Any pics?

I have done the shifter in two trucks thus far with another in the hopper. So far, it has been great. No issues at all. The final install is very clean looking I think., I will send some pics your way.

I saw Johan's orig thread/ Mike's answer about the roof extension.
So it is just a piece fixed on top to meet the height requirements for tax purposes??
Could it be removed easily... retaining the original roof?

Here s a quick YouTube video of the truck. I'm not a film director clearly but it fixes a good perspective on her. Thanks.
