For Sale: 1988 Land Rover Defender in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Vehicle Description

Amazing 1988 RHD Land Rover Defender 90, V8 with automatic transmission. The color is Aintree Green metallic. The truck shows 17,800 since a complete restoration. As with many of these trucks, actual mileage is unknown.

The truck has gone through a mini restoration recently, the major renovation was done last year, I have receipts for approximately $20,000 that I have spent on this Land Rover since April of 2019 year.

Firstly, I want to state that the vehicle is over the benchmark 25 years or older that enables them to be imported into the US. I have all of the documentation regarding the proper import of the vehicle both US Customs and Border Protection, the EPA and also a State of Florida Certificate of Title in my name with no brands or any lien of any type.

A major concern when purchasing one of these Defenders is the condition of the frame and bulkhead, they can be extremely rusty if they have not been maintained properly. The frame and bulkhead on my Defender have been cleaned and sealed against rust and are in amazing condition, having been properly maintained after being restored.

Now to the interesting stuff. The truck has the following features and or upgrades:

  • Leather power and heated seats on both driver and passenger side
  • BRAND NEW OEM factory air conditioning unit installed 3 months ago at a cost of $6,500.00 (July 2019)
