This is a 1996 Defender 90 in the fun sized pickup truck configuration. It’s in the timeless and classic color of Land Rover Coniston green with an Ivory white roof and alloy wheels, which can only be described as simply a beautiful combination for an old classic Land Rover. It has the nice addition of ¾ rear Exmoor Trim Khaki canvas hood cab that keeps the rear cargo area nice and covered. Bench seats can also be added to the rear and the cover can be easily removed to allow for an open truck bed. It’s equipped with diesel power, right-hand drive and is a true to from British example. A perfect cruiser with all the character and charm you need for the ultimate driving experience. It’s a perfect little “Tonka” pick-up truck, a baby rhino of a Defender 90. The 300Tdi 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine in this Defender has 148k miles and runs and drives superbly well. For reliability in the harshest conditions, there's simply nothing that can beat the 300Tdi engine, with its turbocharged direct injection (Tdi) technology paired with the robust R380 5-speed manual gearbox, it provides improved economy with even greater power, torque, longevity, and reliability.
Inside the cab, it features two individual seats in Techno cloth wrapped in Tan Exmoor Trim heavy duty canvas seat covers with a center cubby box, retro gear knobs, a sturdy headliner and an elegant Mountney wood rim 3-spoke steering wheel for some elegant style. The rear bed comes covered with an Exmoor Trim canvas canopy which are a great edition to a D90 pickup vehicle that offer additional covered cargo flexibility, they can also be removed with ease. All lights, heater, wipers, and radio work, as they should. The chassis, bulkhead and doorframes show in very good condition. The engine runs strong and very well, with all new brake pads and rotors, gives you the confidence to drive even better on the road or trails. Equipped with power steering and disc brakes all round reminds you that go-anywhere also means being easy to drive and more importantly enjoyable when you're behind the wheel. With its classic paint and mostly original condition, it does show usual marks and blemishes expected of it being a 25+yr old vehicle, which only add to a Defenders true character and add to their charm. However, this Defender 90 has timeless appeal, so you get the traditional robustness with some of the best rugged style. Remarkably this Defender includes stacks of maintenance records, purchase orders and service history from the day it was born back in Solihull, England in 1996. All complete with service documents, invoices, and maintenance stamps in the original service manual from the Land Rover dealership. That’s over 27 years of historical documents, which is truly phenomenal record keeping by all its previous owners. Astonishing Land Rover documented history that is priceless. Overall, this is one rugged, genuine, and quintessential British Defender 90 ready to hit the roads, trails, safaris, beaches or wherever your adventures may take you. This Defender 90 will be hard to disappoint, especially for a buyer looking for a “Life’s too Short to Drive a Boring Car".
