1988 Land Rover Defender 90 V8 5-Speed

This righthand drive 1988 Land Rover Defender 90 was imported from the U.K. in 2017 after being restored with new paint, a new roof panel, windows, a Terrafirma lift kit, Boost wheels, LED lighting, a Frontrunner roof rack, and more. It was factory equipped with a 3.5L V8 paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, a dual-range transfer case, and a locking center differential.

The exterior has been refinished in the current grey color and features a replacement black roof panel with Alpine windows.

The seller reports some corrosion and paint bubbling at the underside of the doors, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This Defender rides on black-finished Boost five-spoke wheels mounted with BFGoodrich mud tires.

The interior is upholstered with grey cloth and features two front bucket seats with a pair of inward-facing jump seats in the rear. Amenities include a Sony stereo head unit, an analog clock, a leather-wrapped three-spoke aftermarket steering wheel, a locking center cubby box trimmed with Land Rover branded fabric, dual cupholders, sliding rear windows, and all-season rubber Land Rover-branded floormats.

This Defender is powered by a 3.5L V8 with Stromberg carburetors rated at 158 HP and 210 lb.-ft of torque. All four wheels are driven through a 5-speed manual transmission, a dual-range transfer case, and a locking center differential.

    Hello,
    Nice looking Defender. I don’t see bottom of door pics in the gallery. Am I missing them? Do you have any pics of the underside of the vehicle?
    Thank you
