Yeastie for sale

1994 D 90 aka Yeastie for sale
With the new baby coming and me going to half-time, we just can't afford it.

-1994 Defender 90 (121,xxx) aka Yeastie.
- It was originally a POE but all of the proper cage pieces were added by Ron for a soft top.
-Very good condition soft top (Best top) 9/10
-Fiberglass top. Works but could use TLC. Has some large cracks.
-Auxiliary Fuel tank. Everything is there it just needs hooked up.
-New floorboards both driver and passenger side.
-New interior mats both front and back.
-Spare set of steel wheels (5)
-Good BF all terrain tires.
-Seat risers.

It is not show quality, has some dings and dents but I would trust this truck anywhere. We drove it back to Cincinnati and Pennsylvania for our wedding last year and had no problems whatsoever. I try to drive it on a daily basis but it sits for weeks sometimes. It has never let me down and one of the best running d-90's I have ever had. Transmission and transfer case is fine (R380). The stereo and speakers work but are in need of some love. Jim C. added some stainless bolts and galvanized a few items (tail light bar). Frame is fine but there is some rust. I properly fixed most of the rust issues. It is missing the rear sway arm. I am looking to get 16k out of it but make me an offer. If you are interested e-mail Byron.Straw@gmail.com for additional pictures of the usual areas. Also, needs a rail kit for the soft top.

Some general pictures can be found at http://picasaweb.google.com/byron.straw/DefenderPics# I think.

Just because the POEs are kind of oddball I wanted to ask... this still has the "50 state" 3.9 V8 in it, right?

I can't post them from here, but don't forget that Yeastie was my Moscow truck, so I've got cool pix of her sitting in front of the Kremlin, on the battlefield of Borodino, in front of the US embassy etc.

She lived in Switerland with her first owner. It has had synthetic from him and me (second owner). Not sure what JimC or Bstraw did, but she was very well cared for through my ownership.

Would also consider partial trade for a Series III. More pics at http://picasaweb.google.com/byron.straw/D90Album#
Click on D-90 album. Thanks JimC and Ron for the input. This really hurts, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Proud new caretaker of Yeastie

Hey Guys -

As a few of the previous owners know and others may have guessed from my recent posts here I'm the newest caretaker of "Yeastie". My wife has changed Yeastie's name to "Beastie" for obvious reasons. I know she'll always be Yeastie to Ron, Jim and Byron. Anyhow, just wanted to officially say hello to everyone. I'm new to D-90's but not new to Rovers. You can see my current inventory list in my sig line. Please be patient if I ask a few silly questions or questions that may have been covered 100 times. I know how to search but if I don't find an answer in the first two pages I'll be asking again!

Special thanks to Jim C for making the time to meet up with me while he was here on leave. He's a great guy and I really enjoyed listening to his stories about the trucks' history on his watch and it's time in Russia, etc.

So far I've replaced the leaky waterpump, performed a LOF, tightened down a few loose things and added some getto style duct tape to the crunchy fiberglass roof. Lately the fan for the heat and the speedo only work when they want to.

Thanks again -
