Description
Mint condition Land Rover 90 V8 EFI. It is an original factory built V8. This is a non-sunroof model, which is very, very rare. The benefit of this one is that the tops of the doors are removable (Series Land Rover Doors), so during the summer months they can be removed and stored ready for the next winter.
The engine was fully rebuilt in 2012. The rebuild consisted of a complete tear down, and rebuild with the addition of high lift cams, Ashcroft refurbished LT85 manual gearbox (newer generation), new clutch kit, new timing chain, followers, little ends and composite head gaskets. The rebuild also included an EFI conversion which was completed with all new parts (Mark Adams ECU and Air Flow Meter). This conversion make it incredibly fast, reliable and smooth to drive. I would describe this engine as being one of a kind, and the sound is like music to my ears. You can easily cruise at 80+ mph on the interstate which is a vast improvement from others you will see.

The paint and bodywork is pretty much perfect. I regularly wax the car, and all panels are completely blemish free. As I explained above, it has Series doors (early Land Rover generation). This was a decision and preference made again for living in a warmer climate, as the tops are removable. The doors themselves, rear included, are all like new. The only small point which could be criticized potentially is that there is some slight corrosion in each of the foot well plates under the mats, but nothing that needs addressing straight away by any means. This is also a very simple fix.

The Chassis and underneath of this 90 is like new (as per the attached pictures). It has never been welded and nor will it ever need to be if it is kept in the condition that it has been for all these years. I've had the car inspected on several occasions, and people have been amazed at the condition. Another nice point to note is that I've upgraded the springs, so it sits 1.5 inches higher than stock.
