I have been a lurker forum for about a year, using the forum mostly as a resource for general information on the Defender series of vehicles to feed my curiosity. I currently have a 2004 DII as my daily driver, and I have recently come back from the UK where I had the opportunity to drive many different Defender and Series trucks. I am writing this post because I would like to let the forum know about a new venture for me "Cleveland Classic Rovers"
I have always been jealous of UK folks easy access to older series trucks and the Defender vehicles, especially the great diesel engines offered overseas. I am at the end of a three month long project to bring in several land Rover 90s in from the UK. I recently returned from a trip to personally find and inspect each vehicle so I could ensure each was the best of the type that I could find.
My goal with Cleveland Classic Rovers is to support the US based Rover community and get more of the Older Series, Land Rover 90 & 110, and Defender vehicles to the states where they can be enjoyed by fellow Rover enthusiasts. I am able to take specific requests for vehicles to import, or even work with a buyer to have a completely custom Rover built to specification. I also will have several Land Rovers available in the states at any given time.
I just would like to say hello to the forum and offer my assistence to anyone interested in importing a classic Land Rover from the UK. I currently have three great Land Rovers enroute to the states. They are:
1983 Series III - 4cyl petrol, new paint and interior, great runner, well maintained with records, new tires with matching spare on the bonnet, needs nothing, asking price $16,000
1984 Land Rover 90 - Frame up rebuild on Disco running gear, polybush throughout, new shocks and springs, great interior, 200TDi engine, new paint with very straight bodywork, truck cab with chequer plate bed lining and custom toolbox. Asking price: $20,000
1988 Defender 90 convertible - Frame up rebuild on new galvanized chassis, 3" lifted heavy duty suspension with new mud terrain tires, matching spare on the rear door. Like new canvas top. V8 engine with automatic transmission. Fresh paint job and straight bodywork, rock sliders, Range Rover Classic rims, great off road rig asking price:$20,000
All three Rovers can be seen on my website at:
The trucks are still in transit and I do not intend to sell anything before they hit the states, at this point I am just trying to get the word out that I exist. All of the trucks are turn-key and I will post many more detailed pictures once I have them stateside. I will leave the lifted truck as is for a while, if I end up with negative feedback regarding the lift I will take it back to stock. Personally, I would prefer a stock height truck so we'll see. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to make an offer on one of the trucks.
