1995 NAS D90 ST Beluga Black

1995 NAS D90 soft top Beluga Black 106,000 miles $30,000
The story:
Truck spent its entire life in southern California for one owner, until 2010. Absolutely NO RUST. In 2010, the truck was purchased by Adventure Motor Cars in Birmingham, Alabama. The engine was totally rebuilt including: new bearings, new rings, new pistons, new gaskets, new distributor cap, new plugs and plug wires, new oil pump, new oil cooler lines, new starter, new water pump, new hoses, new thermostat, new radiator, new rubber engine mounts, etc. The hood, front wings, cowl, grill were repainted. Stephen deals in nothing but Land Rovers (predominantly Defenders) and the shops he used for engine and paint do a lot of work on Defenders and the work was done properly with the correct parts and techniques. When I bought the truck in April 2011, it was 95% of the way to perfect. In the subsequent months, I took it the rest of the way. The biggest (most expensive) upgrade I did was adding air conditioning. It was the $3,000 Rovers North latest and greatest air conditioning system. It blows very cold and handles the hottest of days with ease. For winter driving, I added a new Badger drop curtain. It seals off the cab totally and will cook you with heat on. The curtain was used for three months and is like brand new. I also added a front brush guard that was powder coated to match the flat black trim pieces exactly. I added an Audiovox CCS-100 cruise control that works perfectly. Other new items added include: new wx stripping everywhere, Garrison Outfitters window channel for both driver and passenger windows (totally eliminated window rattles over bumps), replaced stereo with Kenwood KDC348 receiver/CD player/iPod and USB inputs, Tuffy 017-01 lockable Stereo Console, recovery D-rings front and rear, seat risers, new driver side door card from Rovers North, stainless quick nuts for dood/window, dynamat interior of doors (really reduced door rattle, outside noise and made a big difference in the solid sound when closing the doors), new heavy duty lug wrench (the factory one was sure to break the first time you need it out in the middle of nowhere), new radio antenna and cable, new stepper motor (idle air control valve), new heavy duty alternator from Will Tillery (120 amp??), NAS D90 service/parts DVD and numerous other smaller items.
Known flaws: seats have some wear including tiny hole in one and cracked/split top on one near where your shoulder sits, couple of tiny (I dare you to try and find them) scratches on the door/side, small tear on the soft top at the very front (you can only see it if you are 6’10” or standing on a ladder) and one flap on the back edge of the top has a one inch tear. Looks to me that the southern California owner had the top off most of the time because it is in great shape for its age. A bearing on the new alternator “squeaks” a little bit. Some wouldn’t notice it, but I do. I tried to adjust the belt tension to eliminate the noise, but couldn’t eliminate it. The 2nd gear synchro is a bit balky when stone cold, but after warm-up it is hardly noticed. Double clutching when cold allows fine 1-2 gear changes.
The truck runs absolutely perfectly, save the few minor details mentioned above. I have spent the past 18 months fully sorting through every issue I could think of. I have put 10,000 miles on it. I would not hesitate to take off on an around-the-world trip tomorrow. This truck was bought as a “project” for me and my twin 16 year-old boys. We achieved exactly what I wanted – tons of time together. Now it is time to move on to something else. I would love to sell it to someone on the site, and will have it listed here exclusively for a couple of weeks. If it doesn’t sell here, I’ll have to deal with ROW on Craig’s List, Auto Trader, etc., which I don’t look forward to.
My email is butch@southprintinc.com and cell is 276-252-6200 I will also make it a point to check in here regularly to answer private messages, but I encourage email or cell.
Thanks,
Butch

Looks like a nice truck Butch! Can you provide the VIN # for a carfax?

That's a great looking rig and I imagine it will be difficult to let her go. Beluga? Manual transmission? The perfect D-90 and I woujld hate to be the one to take this one away from twin teenage boys.

The good news is that I have a teenagers that are also looking for a project.

You mentioned that the truck is rust free. Do you have any photos of the frame, rear crossmember, bottoms of doors and the other usual rust suspects?

Thanks.

Hi David,

I am out of town for the holiday, but will take some pictures and post this weekend.

And on the kids, somehow they got more interested in perfume than gas fumes!

Best regards,
Butch

Thanks for the additional pics and the VIN # Butch. You have a very clean 90! If this is still for sale in the coming weeks I may come take a look when I head to NC.

Looked like the truck was sold a few days ago, but that didn't materialize. Still available, still super clean, still great history in non-corosive environment, etc. Still dreading dealing with ebay, Craigslist, etc. Prefer dealing with the fine folks on this board.

Thanks
Butch

Someone from the board who really knows these should go do everyone interested in this truck a favor by going and taking really good pics of the necessary areas everyone is waiting on. I haven't seen anything that would make me run away from this yet, though.

What's that in the dash? The cruise control? Were holes drilled in the dash for that display, or what's the deal?

Also, take a ton more pics from underneath, including more detailed pics of areas prone to rust (or are rusting) like the footwells, etc..

Nice truck GLWTS.

Are you sure your wife doesn't want my 06 LR3SE cold/nav loaded with only 51k, and 8k in cash?

I know you don't want a trade but you could always use another mall crawler right..

Sold. For full price. So price wasn't too high. Maybe too low.

Given you have a similar truck ... The higher the price this makes the more yours is worth ... You need to pump the market up for black ST to the frenzied level of White SWs!!
