1990 Land Rover 90

Pre-'Defender' 90 truck-cab with 2.5 Diesel Turbo; restored on galvanised chassis in 2013; new steering wheel; canvas back - very cool and very chic

Dating from August 1990 this Land Rover is an earlier (but late) ‘pre-Defender’ 90 truck-cab canvas top (the 90 was introduced in 1984, later becoming the Defender in 1991) and still features its 2.5 Diesel Turbo which produces 85bhp and useful 203NM of torque which improved the towing capability considerably over the naturally aspirated 68bhp diesel unit.

The history file suggests the 90 was restored by RJP Land Rovers in 2013 which included fitment of a galvanised chassis, underbody waxoil, refurbished bulkhead, re-skinned doors, re-trimmed seats, black chequer plates.  There are a selection of images in the file and the vehicle is reputedly on SJP’s website. 

Since this time, the truck has been treated to a disc handbrake conversion, an engine re-build in 2016 by Barry 4x4 Centre, LED Angel eye headlight conversion, polybushes, recent exhaust, Dyno-mat flooring steering rebuild, spare wheel carrier performance air filter, silicone hoses and a ‘slick shift’ for more precise shifting.  Some of these parts are documented, but the engine rebuild is not, but is referenced in an advert for when the vehicle was advertised for sale.

The history file also includes the V5C revealing nine former keepers to the current of two years, six old MOTs, a selection of bills for parts and works undertaken dating back to 2014 and the current MOT valid until May 2023 with five minor advisories recorded (enter the reg at check-mot.service.gov.uk).

Ready to be enjoyed, this evidently well sorted example started promptly and moved around with ease for these images and video looking very much the part and very much in vogue.
