For Sale: 1985 Land Rover Defender in BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut

Vehicle Description

The year 1984 saw a new short-wheelbase version, the Land Rover 90 (Ninety), to replace the old 88. The wheelbase was actually 93 inches, but all of the improvements of the 110 were added to the new model, including a stronger frame, bigger windows and larger payload. Axles were located by radius arms and a Panhard rod up front and trailing links at the rear. Approach and departure angles also improved. Available engines were the 2.3-liter gasoline and 2.5-liter diesel, with five-speed gearbox and top speed of 70 mph. With incredible styling, off-road capabilities and the heritage to back it up, the Land Rover Defender can do it all!

This 1985 Land Rover Defender 90 is really something special. It originally served as an Italian Military vehicle and was only recently imported to the United States in 2018. It is a one owner vehicle with all of the restoration done in Italy. Nothing was overlooked during the restoration process, including a new wiring harness, tires, rims and headliner. This truck has the original 2.5-liter diesel motor with new glow plug vents, cables, gaskets, seals, bearings, starter and a remote battery charger port was installed. Custom Italian leather and stitching lines the interior seating along with an upgraded light package with a beautiful custom switch board on the dash. This Defender was beautifully repainted in a matte green finish and we have photo documents of the paint process. You will be hard pressed to find a better example of this incredible off-road vehicle.
