Currently this is my only car and it is extremely well taken care of and used. It is Turnkey. Pretty much everything works and I am not afraid of getting in this truck and driving it anywhere (not joking).It makes me smile every time I drive it and also makes everyone else smile. Drove the truck 3000 miles this past month as well as driving it to work every day. The motor is tuned and makes very good power for a 200tdi and really pulls, I would know since I have owned 3 200tdis. This truck is extremely well taken care of and is extremely well maintained. The truck does 75 on the highway(it is loud but it does it and holds it) it is geared high enough with the overdrive.

Cons
Power steering is leaking at the back of the pump due to failed sealing washer (just top off as needed)
Passenger door latch does not reset automatically due to broken spring (currently I just manually reset the latch) The mech needs to be taken apart and a spring needs to be replaced.
Paint has plenty of patina which I prefer but some may not
Trans as recently been difficult to be put in reverse it works but the linkage need to be looked into, currently trouble shooting the issue.


The truck has had many configurations so some photos are older
I have made many friends in the Land Rover Community and it is a great group of people,
I am looking to get a different land rover due to my needs and life style.
Truck is registered and inspected VT located in Burlington, VT I drive down to Long Island a lot also.
Comes with a bunch of spares.
I would be open to an LR3 as a possible partial trade.

I am asking a very firm 27g due to extensive upgrades.
Feel free to ask any questions, it will be hard to find such a well gone through 90.

Beautiful truck. If it had a galvanized frame, I would be having it hauled to Nantucket. Frame looks great, just a personal demand.

For something that well sorted mechanically, get it use it then when the time is right, replace the chassis

If you make it down anytime before it is sold, give me a heads-up. I'd love to see it. I'm working on a project starting with a similar vehicle and would love to share some thoughts and get your input.

For those that don't know, Brandon spends more time under this truck than he does browsing tinder.


I truly hope you don't get rid of 'ole poo brown 9tee

The cage and rear crossmember on this truck are badass, as are the M3 seats, very comfortable.
