FS: 1995 Land Rover Discovery 1 300 TDI Diesel 5-speed Manual 7 Passenger NC

Been lurking this forum for years, but I'm just a creeper and research w/o posting! Anyways, I had been searching for this vehicle for a while and finally came across it last year. I've spent the last year prepping her and getting things ready for expeditions but life has taken a turn as of late and we must let her go. I'm going to link my for sale thread on expo portal (I think this is okay and not against forum rules!) so you can check out all the photos. On to the nitty gritty…


http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...7-Passenger-NC


1995 Land Rover Discovery 1 300 TDI 5-speed manual (7 passenger). Arles Blue w/ white roof, Gray interior. A/C is fully functional after swap and is cold! This Discovery 1 has a new re-stained dash w/ no airbags, no ABS. The gauges read in KM/H as this has all the correct glow plug lights and no unleaded logo. This Rover has ZERO rust issues. The doors and frame have been coated with Crest Honey Coat. Truck was repainted in 2012. No body damage or dents, and again, no rust. Headliner and interior are in great condition. This truck has no sunroof (bonus as it has no leaks)! It has a cloth interior and 94 style manual seats.

Have all documents on the conversion. Some of photos show truck with white wheels, they are now a semi-matte black to match the hood blackout decal.

Professionally converted in 2011 from V8 to 300 TDI by Cityside garage located in Holliston, MA. http://www.citysidegarage.com/ TDI had 78K when installed and has covered just over 22K since conversion.

New Dayco Timing belt kit, new injectors, glow plugs, glow plug timer, new tensioner bearing, water pump, lift pump, PS pump, power steering box, all belts and hoses were replaced, silicone turbo hoses, new rear main seal and front cam seal, new battery June 2014, rebuilt injector pump, rebuilt alternator, full stainless steel exhaust, new engine and gearbox mounts. New Mantec snorkel!

Drivetrain:
New rear U-joint style driveshaft. Rebuilt double cardan front driveshaft with aluminum adapter. F swivel balls filled with one-shot grease. All new wheel bearings, races, and hub seals, freshly packed. All but rear shaft were done Spring 2014 along with brake overhaul.

Gearbox:
New clutch kit, resurfaced flywheel, throw out bearing and fork lever.

Brakes:
All new remanufactured brake calipers, brake rotors, and Ferodo brake pads on all four corners. +40mm stainless steel brake lines F&R. Fresh fluid. Brake overhaul done Spring 2014.

Suspension:
Brand new OME Heavy Duty springs F&R, new OME Nitrocharger shocks F&R, new F tubular shock towers, new Terrafirma lowered rear upper shock mounts, new F&R spring retainers, all installed Winter 2013.

Rovertym rock sliders with extra side step and Rovertym winch bumper w/ steering guard. UK spec trailer mount (not currently installed). New gaskets on rear windows. Saudi Spec Front Grill! Hood blackout decal. Rear CB antenna mount and RG-58 coax ran to behind passenger dash, ready for radio/antenna install.

Interior:
All 5 doors have new actuators. Front doors have new window lift arms. Both front seats have new Exmoor Trim foam. All door handles have been replaced. New dash was installed and re-stained due to typical dash curl. Full set of matching factory seat covers. New ignition key tumbler, custom rear load space mat, and new rear aluminum door panel. New clutch and brake pedal pads. Entire floorpan has been covered with Monstaliner in matching grey color.

Lots of extra parts included: a set of matching front seats no rips or tears. All 4 door panels, all 4 windows and rails etc. rear wiper motor and arm, door actuators, A/C heater controls, plastic sill trim, door locks and hinges, extra switches and dash parts, etc. Have receipts for pretty much everything!

I'm getting around town about 22ish, give or take 1-2 depending on driving conditions and quality of diesel. On the highway I'm usually around 30mpg. Hwy mileage will really vary depending on your driving style. Trying to run 75-80 will drop the mileage a good bit, but I can run 65-70 and turn good numbers. I've tried hyper-miling it a few times running like 60 on a 80 mile trip to my parents, pretty flat hwy, and I swear the fuel gauge hardly budged!

For those that don't know Hunter, he is a great fella, and a very knowledgable 'car' guy. This was Scott's Disco previously (from Nashville), and as stated above, the motor work was done by Cityside. It is an awesome, very well done Discovery and has tempted me since Scott had it for sale initially.

GLWS!!

Thought I recognized it!!!

The Saudi grill started life on my D1 before I sold it to Scott.

Running good working on getting Nigel ready for winter. Heater works great even without the fan or heat controls in place. It's a Kodiak I bought from Scott!.
