1991 Land Rover Defender 90, Left Hand Drive, 200TDI engine (2.5L Direct Injected Turbodiesel), LT77 5 Speed Manual Transmission, with stock 1.4 ratio LT230 Transfer Case. Opening asking price of $43k. Located in Portland, OR. Also listed locally for sale.

Originally sold in Spain, imported from the Netherlands in 2017 (Odometer reading at the time 185,054 KM). Current Odometer reading 206,670 KM.

Spending most of its life in the dry Spanish climate there is not a lot of corrosion. That being said plenty of the body work has taken bumps and bruises over the years. So, if you're looking for a cosmetically perfect Defender, you should look elsewhere (or be prepared to spend at a body shop). But if you're looking for a Defender to explore in and not worry about scratches in the paint, this may be for you. With regard to maintenance and upgrades, I have focused on mechanical reliability and dependability. Some of the typical areas that start to have corrosion first in a Defender are showing their age--door bottoms primarily. But the entire frame is in very good condition--including the original rear crossmember.


Have decided to sell, and considered having some of the paint/cosmetic areas addressed prior to sale. However, there are so many different ways to approach painting a Defender that I decided I would see if there is interest in its current state. Some people would be comfortable just masking and spraying, other people would like to see more disassembly with parts sprayed individually. Happy to answer any questions about the vehicle. If you're seriously interested, you should just come see it in person.


Prior to import had the following work completed by Riverhouse Land Rover
- Front seats replaced with new take-off late model "puma" defender version (heated and with adjustable headrest).
