Has 170K, only 2 owners, always been in VA or NC
LH fender repainted and/or replaced in 2012, carfax says "left impact" but the paint thickness gauge read different on that fender and the "V8" badge is missing

Most recently it had an exhaust rattle and a manifold leak so it got all new gaskets, two new catalytic converters, and a new Flowmaster (which is honestly pretty quiet).
Selling on behalf of a friend- I have done all the work on this one for the past 6 years or so (when the 2nd owner bought it) including oil changes well before needed and repairs to ANYTHING that wasn't right or up to date. I think some of you are familiar with my tendency to do things right and obsess over details.

Everything is solid. Bulkhead, seat box, especially the frame. To keep it that way, in 2016 (like 3000 miles ago) everything underneath (chassis, floors, tub, etc) was cleaned and then treated to either epoxy chassis paint or high quality undercoat. That meant dropping the tank for access so new fuel pump was done preventative, and went ahead and replaced the brake hoses, suspension ball jont/bushings, sway bar stuff, tie rod ends, etc while I was at it. The bottom line is the truck starts/runs/drives/shifts/stops/turns like brand new. Paint is 25 years but only shows a few of those typical little issues, I have included very detailed photos to illustrate.

Posting here on da Source first in case someone has been lurking for a nice NAS that can be driven and enjoyed instead of kept in storage. Looking for $55,000

AND SINCE YOU READ THIS FAR, this link might take you to some pictures. 1995 Land Rover Defender 90 SW NAS

I'll copy paste the history from the past 6 years/12,000mi here now but if you have any other questions, etc please just let me know. I guess you can message me here but email is awesome too [email protected]
