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…
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.
