1988 Land Rover Defender 90

Distinct, intimidating, and genuinely rugged, this 1988 Land Rover Defender 90 is the ideal 4x4 to take you on a safari as early as tomorrow. But it is also such a looker, that we know you will enjoy it in-town, too.

The Defender 90 follows the grand tradition of tough-as-nails Land Rovers, and you recognize it from the moment this one comes into view. It looks ready to take on the toughest terrain with the steel plated fenders and hood, tubular side steps, huge mud flaps, and tall 4x4 stance. And the rear hitch means you can tow the toys with you wherever you go. But even with all this tough off-road prowess, Land Rover gives you a reminder of its premium side, too. The white paint has the terrific gloss of a more modern investment, and the 16-inch black alloys rival the paint for shine. So, this one might be able to take you beyond the rail, but it also knows how to turn heads when rolling through downtown.

The Defender 90 might have a timeless appeal, but it has been one of the most recent chapter in Land Rover's globetrotting book. So, you get the traditional robustness with some of the new upgrades. And you can really see that inside. High-back leather bucket seats up front, a comfortable center console w/cup holder, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. But do not think amenities mean this Land Rover has gone soft. The interior has tough rubber matting for durability. Plus, with four individual jump seats, you get to choose between seating more people than a Jeep and having a place for secure cargo.

Another great reason to have a Land Rover built for a foreign country is under the hood. We were never offered diesel power with the Defenders that were sold in the USA, and we all know diesel provides plenty of torque to get you through Mother Nature. So, it is great to see a 2.5-liter fuel-injected inline 4 under the hood, and in fact, it's believed to be original to this Defender. This powerplant has earned a tough-as-nails reputation from the Scottish Highlands to Gibraltar, and because this has been a long-standing British motor, the parts are also widely available. The five-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the diesel power. Plus, the high ground clearance, the two-speed transfer case, and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires assures that you can keep going even when the trail ends. But there is more to this Defender. The power steering reminds you that go-anywhere also means being easy to drive down Main Street. This is the legendary 4x4 that has both style AND substance. So, if you want to go everywhere and look great doing it, call today!
