Nice car, very good frame, new paint job.


On its way to Michigan, ETA March 2020

Car was not used as a work truck but previous owner had a pick-up camper in the back. Maybe this is the reason why is in better condition then many which were used as work trucks.
Original color white, still visible in engine room.

Car has a recent, very professional repaint in Epson Green. Not a full nut an bolt restoration and car was not disassembled for the repaint.

originally comes from Germany.

The Good:
  • solid frame, newer rear cross member and side extensions
  • drives nice, easy starter, good driver, shifts good, brakes working fine
  • really nice paint
  • new Sawtooth wheels with new tires, same spare.
  • new Puma seats, front. Original rear seats ( fabric not matching)
  • timing belt replaced
  • full service done, oil filters, etc
  • big sun roof (not factory)
  • 265 K kms, most of the service history is known.

Good to know
  • headliner sagging a little
  • door frames repaired
  • some scratches on door panels
  • service history shows major body damage and repair 15 years ago. Nothing of that can be seen anymore but I want to have it listed.
price ex my place in Michigan

optional AC kit for $ 2750, not installed.

I think this car looks really great and drives even better. I had it checked and repaired by a Land Rover specialist before shipping. Major service, including timing belt, has been done. Also brake calipers have been replaced together with many, many more items. The total invoice was close to $ 6,000 and is available for people interested.

I planned to finish the car after it arrived in MI, mainly cosmetical details but am swamped with work. Willing to make a good price for somebody who wants to do that themselves. Mainly involves sagging headliner, carpet all around, installing nicer door panels (panels included) and a lot of minor things.

Ones again, this is one of the best driving 130 which passed my hands lately, smooth, fast, and relatively quiet.

Installed a brand new 2nd row Puma seat today and fixed the sagging headliner. Great work to spend Easter.

i listed before about scratches on door panels. I want to make sure, I meant the indoor panels; door cards. Not the body part.

Yes it is. Have to say though my job of fixing the headliner only lasted two weeks. So still have to finish details
