Original -1989 LR 110 County SW 2.5 Diesel - 74k miles - Perfect USA import

Hello everyone, hope you are all well...

I now have for sale a lovely, very original condition, 1989 Land Rover Defender 110 County SW with only 74,000 original miles on the clock.

She has her original 2.5na (19j) turbo diesel engine, matching V5, VIN Plate, Chassis stamp and engine numbers (all easily visible) and is therefore primed and ready for export and import into the USA.

Only 74,500 miles on the clock, verified by previous MOT certificates.


- Engine 19J,
- Gearbox
- Paint
- Chassis
- Interior


- Very solid chassis, a bit of surface rust as she isn’t currently coated in anything
- I have left it that way for the moments so you all can see the chassis for its true condition, not just hidden behind a load of old waxoyl
- My intention is to coat the chassis in buzzweld CIO before she is shipped
- Has recently had a new fuel tank


- Interior is almost as good as new; seats are in very good condition all round.
- Dash and dials binnacle also very good condition
- All interior trim is present and very good condition.
- Roof lining is good but a bit saggy in places, as you would expect.
- Sunroof works great and doesn’t leak!!!!!!
- Bulkhead under the dash (top of foot wells) is solid on both sides. It has previously been patched on the passenger side under the heater matrix.
-Driver side foot well is great, floor plan very solid.
-Passenger foot well has some rust issues on the floor pan, but I will be rectifying this before she is shipped.


-Original Paint is very good, few aged related marks and some oxidation in places but all in all lovely for 30 year old defender (as you can see from the photos)

-She has a couple dents in the front wings (as you can see in the photos), I have opted to leave them as they are to preserve her originality over her aesthetic. I think a vehicle this original should stay that way for as long as possible and it all adds to her story and character.

- Original steels wheels, in good condition and tyres have plenty of tread

- 4/5 Doors are in good condition for age, bottom rails have seen better days but haven’t they all.

- The passenger rear door has some rust issue as you can see in the photos, I have a replacement door that could be used or it can be left as is / fixed before she is shipped.

- The doors close very nicely, door gaps are minimal and all locks work well


- She drives really nicely for a 30 year old defender; all lights and electronics work as they should, the steering is nice and tight and the gear box selects gears nicely. Low range and dif lock all work as they should.

- Drove her over 200 miles from London to Plymouth a few weeks ago and she didn’t miss a beat, had no problems when sat on the motor way at 60-65mph.

In Summary

- A great opportunity to acquire a Beautifully original 110
- Very well looked after, well maintinaed and low mileage vehicle with a solid chassis and bulk head
-Honest classic 5 door county, not hiding anything, perfect to be used as is or used as a blank canvas for complete transformation.
