For Sale: 1990 Land Rover Defender in Santa Barbara, California

Vehicle Description

This 1990 Land Rover Defender 130 is a right-hand drive four-door example that left the factory as a high-capacity pickup and is said to have been used on expeditions in Europe and Siberia under previous ownership before being purchased by the seller in 2016. A subsequent overhaul carried out by Eastern Off Road of Cambridgeshire, England included refinishing the frame as well as body modifications from a later Puma Defender. A 2.5-liter 200Tdi turbodiesel inline-four was installed after the truck was imported into the US in 2018, and is paired with a five-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case as well as Salisbury front and rear axles. Additional features include a Safety Devices front roll cage, LED lighting, leather Exmoor seats, power-operated front windows, a Puma dash, air conditioning, and 18? wheels with BFGoodrich tires. The body and chassis were separated as shown in the gallery below and the stock doors, hood, and roof were replaced with later Puma parts before repainting by Eastern Off Road. Additional modifications include a Safety Devices front roll bar, rocker protection, LED projector headlights, a front bumper with integrated daytime running lights, diamond-plate fender trim, and more. The truck features a four-door configuration on a 130? wheelbase. Black 18? wheels wear BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires, and a matching spare is mounted in the bed. A steering box guard and Terra Firma stabilizer have been fitted along with four-wheel disc brakes and stainless steel hoses. The cabin features room for five passengers on Exmoor quilted leather seats as well as a Puma headliner, an Exmoor center console with a storage box and cup holder, Exmoor leather door trim, black carpeting with floor mats, and power-operated front windows. The Puma dash houses vents, an analog clock, and a radio blanking plate. A leather-wrapped Puma steering wheel frames instrumentation including a six-digit odometer that reads approximately 212k chassis miles, 500 of which are said to have been added following the refurbishment. The seller fitted an air conditioning system integrated with the Puma dash after the truck arrived in the US. A replacement 2.5-liter 200Tdi turbodiesel inline-four was reportedly installed under current ownership, at which time it was fitted with a new timing belt and water pump. Additional modifications include a tuned fuel pump and a 115mm intercooler. A custom big-bore exhaust system exits via a single pipe that exits under the left side of the cab. Power is supplied to all four wheels through a five-speed manual transmission, a two-speed transfer case, and Salisbury axles at both ends. The ladder frame is said to have been boxed at the rear under previous ownership, and was reportedly media blasted before being refinished. The suspension has been modified with extended control arms and heavy-duty coil springs at the rear.
