Importing a Defender 90 into USA
Hello, I'm new to this forum and have a few questions I hope someone can answer. I owned a 90 about 15 years ago but sold it because it wasn't really a good city car for my purposes (stupid move). I now live in a rural area (north Oregon coast) and am thinking about importing a pre-88/89 90 diesel into the country. I have a friend in the UK who has owned Defenders and is looking for just the right one at the right price. Questions: Parts availability? Problems with cars of that vintage, besides the obvious rust issues? Is the engine difficult to work on for a very competent mechanic/garage? Any other questions I should be asking?
Thanks. This is a great forum and I look forward to hearing and participating.
