Seller's Comments

This 1990 Land Rover Ninety was imported by the selling dealer two years ago from France. As acquired, the inline-four diesel was in need of a new turbocharger, and the seller elected to replace the 19J motor and transmission entirely. The seller sourced a 200Tdi inline-four, 5-speed manual transmission, and transfer case from a Land Rover Discovery and had the units rebuilt prior to installation. Other modifications include Terrafirma fender flares, Bilstein shocks, BFG all-terrain tires, a Terrafirma tubular front bumper with a Warn winch and kevlar rope. This Land Rover is the selling dealer's personal car, and is sold with a clean Oregon title.The seller had the body stripped, with the glass removed, and repainted in its original colors. Per the seller, no rust is present in the bulkhead or other rust-prone areas. The five spoke Defender alloy wheels have been powder coated in dark grey. Alloy hub-centric wheel spacers are fitted, and help the BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A tires to fill out the Terrafirma fender flares. Diamond-plate panels are fitted on the front wings and rocker panels.Body modifications include an NAS rear tow bumper and a tubular Terrafirma front bumper with Warn winch and Kevlar rope. PIAA LED driving lights are fitted to the front bumper, and LED corner lights are fitted front and rear.The front seats have been reupholstered and feature all new foam with grey vinyl upholstery. A custom stereo system is installed and incorporates a JBL marine-specification Bluetooth receiver mounted in the center of the dash. An aftermarket steering wheel is fitted. All interior features are said to work correctly. 249k kilometers (~154k miles) are shown, and the seller has added about 5k kilometers during his ownership. The true total is unknown.No jump seats are fitted in the rear cargo area, and a set of custom speaker enclosures are fitted above the rear wheelwell cutouts. The headliner and rear door have been replaced. The entire cabin floor has been treated with sound-deadening material and spray-in bedliner for protection.The seller replaced the original 19J turbodiesel with a rebuilt 200Tdi engine from a Zombie Motors. Thanks to an updated injection system and aluminum cylinder head the 200TDi produced an additional 17 horsepower and ~40 lb-ft of torque over the 19J. The seller fitted a new turbocharger during installation, and used the exhaust manifold and turbocharger from a 300TDi for simplified installation in the Ninety. The transmission is a Discovery-specification 5-speed manual which was sourced from Ashcroft in the United Kingdom. The seller also rebuilt the higher-geared Discovery transfer case and fitted a new clutch. Per the seller, the taller gearing and increased power makes the truck more comfortable at highway speeds than a stock Defender.The seller replaced the brake master cylinder, lines, pads, rotors, brake shoes, power steering box, pump and high pressure hydraulic lines. Other new components include the high-capacity alloy intercooler, 200 amp high capacity alternator, radiator and exhaust system. Sound deadening is added under the hood.
