1988 Land Rover Defender 90 V8 5 Speed Manual LHD
Location: United Kingdom
The ultimate Defender. This 90 was delivered new on 01/07/1988 to Switzerland equipped with a 3.5 Petrol V8 and rare 5 speed manual transmission and finished in Orange. The car maintained single ownership in Switzerland for most of its life (2 Swiss owners in total) before being imported and registered in the UK in 2015.
Since then, the most recent owner has set about restoring and improving the car with no expense spared. This 90 has been fully repainted inside and out in Gulf Blue with Grey and Orange accents as a nod to its original colour. The interior has been replaced with a new black interior throughout including rear bench seats.
Mechanically, this Defender has recently had an extensive service (including carburettors rebuilt) by Vulcan Classics who also attended to the underside of the car, replacing all suspension components as necessary before protecting the underside of the vehicle with underseal. Accompanying the car is a vast folder documenting not only the car's Swiss life but all of the restoration work by way of invoices and photographs too.
This Defender presents fantastically throughout, this isn't just another shed done, DIY "restored" Land Rover. The care and attention to detail that has been given to this 90 is abundantly apparent in its finish and also the way it runs and drives.
Being a 1988 delivered car, this is now eligible for US import and having already been registered in Switzerland, re-importing it into the European Union will not be a struggle. We are happy to assist with shipping to your location.
