1989 Land Rover 90 4C

Beautifully restored on a galvanised chassis; original 2.5 petrol engine; LED light upgrade; rear seats; showing just 63,399 miles

Dating from February 1989 this exceptionally clean and tidy Land Rover 90 hails from just prior to the adoption of the ‘Defender’ name and has been lovingly, and painstakingly restored by Astwoods 4x4 at the request of our vendor's late husband.

The 90 is finished in traditional Shire Blue and sits upon its original 16” white painted steel wheels shod with Goodyear Wrangler AT/S tyres and comes in County spec (this may, or may not be original) and features the now rare to find 2.5-litre 17H naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine which carried over the chain-driven cam of the old 2.25 litre petrol but now developed 83bhp driving all-four wheels via five-speed manual transmission.

Underneath this example we find a new galvanised chassis which should give way to any of the usual fears about corrosion for which these trusty steeds are usually known.

Showing just 63,399 miles, this looks to be correct from the MOT history we can see back to 2006 when it had covered 45,205, which also shows the truck to have covered just 10,000 miles in the past 12 years and but a couple of thousand in the last few. 

Inside, we find fold up seats in the rear, new vinyl front seats with cubby box, upgrade LED head lights and LED rear spotlights, leather wrapped Lode Lane steering wheel, centrally mounted Pioneer touch screen LCD screen with reverse camera potential and entertainment options (see images).

The history file includes the V5C recording five former keepers, he first being GCHQ, with the current and former, and other former are father-in-law, husband and wife along with a Heritage Certificate confirming the date of manufacture, that it was sold via a dealer called G.O.H.G Transport of Cheltenham. The file also includes the original owner’s pack with manuals and wiring diagram along with the current MOT valid until November 2022 recording no advisories. 

**Further documentation has since been recieved and includes 7 copy old MOTs and a selection of bills for parts and general maintenance undertaken including new rocker cover gasket, new contacts and ignition condensor in 2017, headlight unit, refurbishment of the rear hubs and new manifold gasket in 2015 much of which looks to have been pre-restoration. **
