Info below on left hand drive 90 soft top. Great runner, fun to drive. $36k

Very nice refurbed 1988 Defender 90 soft top build. Left hand drive truck with a 200 Tdi motor and LT77 gear box ready for your summer adventure. VIN is SALLDVAB8EA356480

Started with a blue 90 hard top and went to work! Stripped the truck down and repaired or replaced almost everything. Installed new roll bars, new seats, sanded and painted interior in Alpine White. New front exmoor seating as well full carpeting throughout. New center console cubby.

Frame solid all the way from end to end. No patches, rust or other issues. We sanded the frame down and fully coated it for long term protection. Same with the axles. New oil lines, brakes and brake lines and exhaust. We patched a small part of the passenger side foot well that was very minor and will not be a future issue.

We removed the original 19J 2.5 TD motor and replaced it with a Discovery born solid running 200 Tdi motor. Donor truck and motor had about 80k miles on it. Motor received new timing belt as well as general refresh and service. Starts immediately on the first turn and settles into a nice idle. No abnormal sounds, smoke or otherwise. Truck accelerates and pulls better than most and smoothly shifts up and down thru all the gears as it should. Again, no odd sounds, shakes or otherwise. Transfer case works as it should as well.

New puma style doors with new bits and pieces close very easily and tightly. Dash is straight and clean. One minor straight line repair and that is it. We installed a new, quality sound system with Pioneer bluetooth head unit, app, 4 speakers and small subwoofer to fill out the sound. You can be doing highway speeds with the top down and still enjoy your favorite tunes! black soft top fits snugly and shows minimal wear. New mud terrain tires and black steel wheels complete the look.

Let me know if there are any questions.
