For sale we have as listed a 1988 (not 1980 as listed. Ebay does not recognize European VIN) long wheel base 110 Defender style Land Rover Left hand drive, Speed box, ower brakes and steering.This very nice tough go anywhere vehicle is a turn key ready to go car. It has by it's previous owner been used as an every day car. I have used it and reached highway speeds with ease although being one of these it does take a while but 70 mph can be reached. It is a diesel so economical.

The exterior has been treated to full bodyArmour, lack steel grille for fending off those forest trails, ew spot lamps, ull length rack with work light. Brand new rear lights.All round BF Goodrich AT'sThen engine has been re-built and has associated invoices as well as many others to do with the car.
As Listed a used original un-restored vehicle that is over 25 years old so please remember that when buying. It is USED. The Spanish climate has been kind to the car however there will be age related wear. However it is better than many 10 year old vehicles. It has under the hood some minor surface rust on the Hood frame, he rest is aluminium. Some areas of thinner paint on the Aluminium body. Chassis is clean. the rear cross member has been replaced due to the fact that very unusually for here it had a hole in it. This was caused by an owner sticking chequer plate on it. This whilst looking nice stores up trouble for the future as the dirt and mud has nowhere to go and cannot be cleaned properly and it rots out from the inside. Rather than patch like like many would we purchased a new one with chassisextensions. The best solution. This will last another at least another 30 years if cleaned properly.I also have the option if you don't like the Spanish frontal treatment for a "Defender kit". This includes the wing tops with light panel, ew crystal headlights, ew headlamp bowls, ndicators and side lights again new and the black surrounds for an extra $500 This kit transforms the front into a Defender and is pretty indistinguishablefrom a Defender. You can see this transformation to a previous car on my page.
The car is based in Cambrils North Spain. We ship from Barcelona, arragona or Valencia through SEFCO Shipping. This costs around $2300 port to port plus the 2.5% customs on top of the final agreed sale price. Buying cars from abroad can be scary but as they say this isn't my first Rodeo. We have an agent/sister company in Jacksonville who can guide you through the whole process.The car is 25 years old and original so has no problems getting in. Once in the USA the cars value will be enhanced due to being a Long wheelbase and Left hand drive. All my cars are now in the USA registered and with their new owners with no problems.You are welcome to source your own company.Before the car comes over take advantage of cheap Land Rover parts prices and think of what you would like or may need in the future and I will send it over in the car as other clients have done. Paddocks Spares in the UK is the cheapest and the best. if this car is not for you I can also source Clean rust free G-Wagen, oyota Land Cruiser, okes and Mini's etc. all Left hand drive!
