1989 Land Rover 90

Set-up for Off-road use with snorkel, external roll-cage, Insa Turbo tyres, sump-gaurd, sill bars etc - lots of go-anywhere fun!

Dating from October 1989 this imposing Land Rover 90 hails from the ‘pre-Defender’ nomenclature and looks to have been set-up for off-roading use and enjoyment.

Re-finished in a crackle-effect red matt red paint for added durability, this 90 certainly has road presence with its substantial 285/75 Insa Turbo Special Track mud terrain tyres sat on 16inch modular black wheels, snorkel air intake, external roll cage and checker plating.

Evidently subject to some considerable spend, the underside looks tidy enough for an old 90 with sump guard, side bars, suspension lift and clever spare wheel hangar on the rear door/pillar.

Showing 144,234 miles the truck shows some signs of age, mileage and use like many old Landies, particularly one that has seen off-road use. Inside, we find seating for 3 on vinyl seats showing typical signs of wear and in the van-side rear, seat belts for any rear passengers and rubber flooring.

The history file includes only the V5C showing 14 previous owners and current MOT valid until June 2022 recording just 1 advisory for a OSF shock absorber loose.

Under the bonnet, the engine looks to have been swapped out for a later turbo-charged 200tdi lump as is common. Bar the highlighted cosmetic bits including often found rot to the bottom of the doors the truck looks to offer a lot of fun and go anywhere ability for little outlay. Tidied up, it could represent a bit of a snip at the enticing estimate considering how 90/Defender values have rocketed of late and given its age, could be eligible for the export market too.
