motodrome are pleased to offer what I think is currently the finest 1987 Land Rover 90 V8 County Station Wagon that you’ll find, outside of a museum.
This is an increasingly-rare original V8 County Station Wagon not a conversion from a van, and over the last three years the last owner has had a fastidious restoration carried out, mainly by local specialists. Special attention has been paid to returning it to as original a specification as possible to when it was new, with no dubious ‘personalisation’ added.
Being a County Station Wagon 6 seater, , it has the usual County package including power steering, sunroof, alpine lights, full headlining, cloth seat trim, centre cubbybox, full carpeting (in the correct brown), tinted glass, colour coded wheelarch eyebrows and ‘Rostyle’ wheels – shod with near new Michelin Latitude tyres, and side/rear steps. Also fitted with rear seat belts and mudflaps all round.
The only deviations from standard are uprated headlights, a more modern radio/CD (although we have a rare original one in stock), a battery cut off switch, and a tracker (which will require a subscription should you wish to reactivate it). The chassis is the original (albeit with new outriggers and crossmember etc) the bulkhead was removed, sent to a specialist for localised repairs and then galvanised, and the engine and gearbox are the originals (both rebuilt by local specialists, plus the transfer box as well)) , as evinced by a Heritage Certificate that shows it was originally supplied locally, by Julians of Pangbourne. We even have the original-type side decals, although the last owner and I both prefer it without. Some were supplied with colour coded grille and light surrounds – we also have these if you prefer that look.
Mileage, history etc
Odometer reading 132000 miles, supported by probably the most comprehensive restoration history I’ve ever seen for one of these. I haven’t added the bills up, but I have a feeling the restoration exceeds our asking price. We have a bound album of restoration photos, a bound album of bills, the original book pack, and the last owner traced all the previous owners via DVLA and was rewarded with a series of pictures of the 90 in earlier days. He also sourced a lot of Land Rover promo leaflets and magazine articles on the 90 V8. Quite exceptional really, and an indication of his diligence.
Last serviced at 131561m in Feb 2020 by a Land Rover specialist.
It comes with MOT to February 2021 and 6 months warranty on sale.
It drives utterly superbly, and is, in my opinion, as close an experience you’ll get to having been the first owner in 1987. A good V8 transforms a 90 into a lovely machine. .
