Description:

1980 Land Rover Defender SOFT TOP

PLEASE NOTE: Above pics are prior to being detailed or having final touch up by painter...
This Defender has undergone quite an extensive restoration from the frame up, and was built to be the epitome of the multifaceted Land Rover Defender. A soft top 5-door wagon with comfortable Exmoor Elite seating combined with the convenience of a V-8 engine and automatic transmission within a galvanized frame and 4- wheel disc brakes facilitates both the weekend adventures/beach days/expeditions with the duties of daily driver life!!
So, the first obvious question- why am I selling? After 27 years of driving Defenders, and building countless examples (a few of which can be seen at theRVRbarn), I myself have been rebuilt with numerous joint replacements and reconstruction. So, the liquidation of my Rovers continues. This particular vehicle was to be the one I planned to keep, but my family has vetoed me and we are keeping the custom Tithonus...
And so without further distraction, please find below an outlined spec sheet of what went into this build. She started as a one owner vehicle from the UK, then legally imported and titled in the US. The restoration/build took place to make her much more compatible with the demands of travel here in the States. And to breathe new life into the old girl- starting with a full cage and soft top!! Details as follows:
CHASSIS:-galvanized Land Rover frame, not an aftermarket copy-4 wheel disc brakes-stainless steel brake lines-HD commercial fuel line w/ new easily accessible fuel pump and filter-new fuel tank-new shocks and springs-new bushings and new HD drag link-converted to LHD with PAS-new 35" Falken A/T tires on Land Rover alloys professionally painted gloss black w/ spacers-new rear wiring harness
DRIVETRAIN:-aprox 60k mile 3.5 Rover V-8 w/ factory ZF automatic transmission-Petronix ignition-new stainless steel muffler w/ new exhaust system
BODY:-factory LHD bulkhead and dash, minor rust was found on passenger floor, which was removed and replaced with correct floor panel- 4 new doors with new latches, catches and door seals- new rear galvanized side hinged tailgate w/ new latch, catch and door seals-new factory T-post (very expensive and critical to a quality build)-new Safety Devices cage and Allmakes soft top (hood) as well as new door surrounds and gutters-new windshield glass and seal-new wheel arches-new KBX grille, headlight surrounds and air intakes/vent covers-new correct Conniston green paint
INTERIOR:- 5/ ea new high back Exmoor Elite leather seats, fronts with heated seats and adjustable lumbar-new floor mats, tunnel cover, and rear loadspace mat-NOTE: There are 2 new matching Exmoor Elite jump seats included, but they have not been installed as everyone may not want them. Also, there is a locker in the rear of the truck on the left wheel well behind the rear tire from the factory.-new steering wheel (smaller diameter allowing more leg room)-new door cards x 4-MUD UK dash upgrade for future stereo/switches/etc-No stereo has been fitted, as this seems to vary widely from person to person. I do not run a stereo in my trucks, but know that many folks do- but impossible to please everyone. As such, I would rather leave it out for the individual to fit, thus not destroying the interior for no reason.
EXTRAS/KIT:-new 5-bar anodized wing protectors-new swing away tire carrier w/ correct 35" spare-new stainless steel door sills to prevent paint scrapes/scratches upon entering at all 4 doors-galvanized front bumper
Please do not hesitate to request additional information or ask questions. The above criteria was selected for it's proven reliability and reputation in the Land Rover community and real world experiences.
Now for the realities of the situation. This is a serious for sale ad/listing/auction, and as such, I do not have the luxury of time for fake bids and time wasters, so please- serious bidders only!! Also, pre-bid inspection is welcome, and in fact- encouraged!! Your bid is an offer to buy, not an invitation to come take a look/see after the auction. And lastly, this is a 28 year old Land Rover, and though restored, is still sold as is/where is with no warranty of any type- expressed or implied!
