For Sale: 1987 Land Rover Defender in Atlanta, Georgia

$28,900  

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this remarkably original and unmolested 1987 Land Rover Defender 110 County. This is an unusually well-documented example with complete ownership and service history to new. Purchased by a physician in Nottingham, this 110 remained with its original owner until 2015 and has just under 94,000 original miles. It was imported to the U.S. last year and is sold on a clean and clear Georgia title. Fitted with the 3.5 liter gasoline-powered Rover V8, it's a nice change of pace from the Diesel-powered trucks we typically find.

Finished in Bronze Green, this Land Rover was ordered in the upmarket "County" trim which featured custom graphics and an upgraded interior. Carpets, tweed seat upholstery and headliner remain in excellent original condition. The body is consistent with what you expect from a life lived in the damp English countryside - plenty of patina and light skin corrosion but major rot or structural issues have been kept largely at bay (the rearmost frame section has been replaced with galvanized steel). You always know a car or truck has been well-cared-for if it's running Michelins... This one has great-looking skinny Michelin truck tires on steel wheels in good condition.

Most of the imported Defenders we see don't have much in the way of service records (not to mention ownership or mileage documentation) so it can be difficult to ascertain the true mileage or mechanical state. This one includes the original sales invoice, stamped service book, plus decades' worth of MOT certificates and shop tickets. It runs and drives well but the twin SU carburetors could stand some additional tuning (it runs great with the choke pulled halfway out but doesn't like to idle with the choke all the way in, even when warm).

You won't find one with better history or a better original interior, and we find the patina charming - and offered at an approachable price point. For more information about this 1987 Land Rover Defender 110 for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
