Just imported from Italy. This 1987 Land Rover Defender 90 is ready for any outdoor adventure you can think of. The truck had a basic exterior restoration completed. Mechanically the truck is perfect and runs and drives excellent. Truck comes with all import papers as well as a Georgia Title. INSPECTION REPORT ABOUT 1987 DEFENDER Outside Body The body appear solid with an average repaint redone 6-8 months ago, maybe one year. It's in the original color. Some orange peeling is present but could be polished well. . Wheels have same sand blasting and cheap paint job, remade later so presents better. Seals and gaskets had not been removed before repainting so if you tilt the seals you can see the old paint. Grille is in good conditions, bumpers and rear chassis had been hand painted. Locks had been painted black but they all work. The doors and rear door shuts very well and solid. No excessive filler all around. Windshield frame seems solid without rust, although the seals has been filled with plastic dip to avoid entering of water, and the windows seals on the door need to be changed. Rear seals are good and all glasses opens and closes. Lights all new or very good. Roof is in very good conditions without signs of damages or corrosion. Inside Body Rear space had been hand painted in a lighter grey and there are two seats present. Front seats retrimmed in very good conditions of foam and fabric. Some minor rusts around seats frame. Floors in good conditions with very limited corrosion, inside and outside. Door panel with some extra screws but door solid on the lower inside rail. Hinges solid except for some outer corrosion. Bonnet solid without rust spots. Gearbox shift is good tight without extra play of the levers. All glass without damage, including windshield. Steel stripe to the closing of the rear door has some rust treated and had been painted black. Engine bay It looks clean without oil stains or leakages. All mechanicals is new but please have a look to the Engine section. Insulation under bonnet is missing. Brake pump without leaking and looks replaced some years ago. Chassis and underside All has been steam cleaned and black refinished, some oil leakage from the rear differential. Rubber bushings seems good and there is a repair in silver paint which you have a detailed photo. Shocks and rubber stops and silent blocks are original and in fair good conditions. No leakage is visible where the car has rested on the parking lot and was not moved since 2 weeks. Engine and test drive They say new engine, while it's not totally true. I investigated with the secretary and i found through the records a receipt for engine change. They put another original 19J engine from a wrecked car and that engine was redone 40-50,000 km ago without documentation. Engine starts on the button after some weeks, there are no leakage and the turbo goes well without noises or missing of power, but this is just worth noting. I attached here receipt found for the engine swap and NOT for his claimed rebuilt engine from HIS shop. There is no smoke at hot temperature from the oil pan stripe, but this oil pipe fixed with plastic stripes need to be investigated with a mechanic. Brakes are hard and straight, although THERE IS EXCESSIVE PLAY of the steering and probably steering box or steering bushes or tie rods needs attentions. This is the only mechanical fault i found. Suspensions all work and so the shocks, no excessive noises or strange clunches. 4X4 and lock diff all work and engage as it should, maybe a rubber mounting a little deteriorated, as from the clutch moving the car has a lunch that we can hear from the underside. It could be a clutch problem also or a universal joint. No excessive smoke from the rear of the exhaust and there is no oil deposit on the exhaust exit, which in the diesels usually is a good sign. History Production of the model now known as the Defender began in 1983 as the Land Rover 110, a name which reflected the 110-inch (2,800 mm) length of the wheelbase. The Land Rover 90, with 93-inch (2,362 mm) wheelbase, and Land Rover 127, with 127-inch (3,226 mm) wheelbase, soon followed. Superficially there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. A full-length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. Initially the conservative engineering department insisted that the Land Rover was also available with a part-time 4WD system familiar to derivatives produced since 1949. However the part-time system failed to sell and was quickly dropped from the options list by 1984. While the engine and other body panels carried over from the Series III, mechanically the 90 and 110 were modernised, including: Coil springs, offering a more compliant ride and improved axle articulation A permanent four-wheel-drive
