1980 Land Rover Defender County Station Wagon Additional Info:

1988 Land Rover Defender 110 Turbo Diesel station wagen.

This is a great opportunity to get a Defender 110 Turbo Diesel that is already stateside, legal, and registered. These trucks get harder and harder to comeby at reasonable prices each year. This is a good example, is the perfect camping / adventuremobile...or you can drive it as-is reliably as a daily driver. Everyone has their own ideas of what they need in a rig and that's why we are letting this one go unrestored. In short, this great example is entirely up to you to personalize and build as you see fit. (We will gladly lend a hand of course)

100% legally imported and registered in the State of Virginia. She is currently parked up at our shop in the Martinsburg region, where we restore these vehicles. Given we charge folks $40 to work on these trucks i simply have run out of time to work on my own projects and this happens to be one of those. Yes you are more than welcome to come and look. I will also gladly restore the vehicle for you, but be advised the earliest i could take on that work would be mid March.

For a 28 year old vehicle it is in average shape. It suffers from the standard Defender issues that come with a vehicle of this age.

—> She drives exceptionally well, manages to do 65-70, and goes around corners the way she should, albeit a bit of extra sway due to the 2” lift fitted by a former owner.

—>Frame requires two patches and a good undercoating. Yes i inspected it with a boroscope and this is why i bought the vehicle initially for restoration well over a year ago. She is notfresh of the boatand yes i have driven her on and off for the duration of that year, albeit limited miles. So unlike most sellers, i can tell you the in’s and out’s of the truck, the good and the bad so to say. The best thing is that the chassis is bare and not coated quickly to cover up everything and make it seem new. Honestly expect about $600 to $1000 worth of repair work.

—>As with any original or “so called freshly painted" land rover’s, rust areas such as the door bottoms and bulkhead are inevitable. If you are a good welder, then certainly fixing the doors will be an enjoyable experience, if not, it is a nightmare. We do have a set of new doors and will gladly sell them too you and/or install them free of charge at $625 per door.

—>The bulkhead, is in poor shape, and will need extensive welding and various new panels. Yes we can source a rust free/galvanized one.

—> Paint leaves much to be desired, and i recommend you strip it and have it repainted. This way you know the bones with which you are working rather than buying a “freshly painted truck” which in our experience always hides $$$ in the form of tons of rust.

—> This truck actually has only 99K miles. This is verifiable with old paperwork that we received with the vehicle. This really is quite low mileage for one of these, as many you see have over 200k miles and or no documentation.

—> Upgraded Discovery 2 leather heated front seats and rear bench which folds entire forward, giving you more space and significantly more comfort than the miserable very very old and tired defender seats will give you. $1300 upgrade. You will have to finish the seat installation part, as this is quite custom to personal preference due to the added heigh and relation to the steering wheel. clearance that is personally desired. I will of course gladly figure this out with you. The seats are currently not wired, and that will be a project for you, but all the switches and necessaries are there.

> More modern wheelsand the old steel wheels and tires are included as well. I will also throw in a 5th rim that will match the rims currently on the truck so that the rim hanging from the rear door is the same as on the rest of the truck.

The rest:

I have personally driven the vehicle and know how what and where, and will gladly answer any concerns you may have. In my opinion (grew up in the back of a 109 station wagon, rrc and defender restorationist, and owned every ladder chassis landy aside from a forward control) it is, a good truck mechanically, certainly on par to the trucks we usually deal with and repair. As with all trucks this age i do recommend you change all the rubber bushings out, as this is often overlooked by novice sellers.

Fluids have been checked, but they are not serviced. I do recommend you fully service the truck upon taking delivery. Easy truck to work on and i will gladly lend a hand via the phone/skype if you get stuck.

Please remember, this vehicle is now 28 years old and as such has the normal expected wear for it's age due to its originality. Please do not come or bid expecting a showroom 110. If that is what you are looking for you are going to pay 70K+. That being said, it is a great truck that is the perfect starting point for your own adventure lifestyle for years to come.
