motodrome are pleased to offer this 1988* registered Land Rover 90 hardtop 2.5 petrol, finished in Marine Blue with a white roof.
Land Rover 90’s with the original-fit 2.5 litre petrol engine are quite thin on the ground these days, and they make a pleasant alternative to the asthmatic diesel engine offered at the time, with better performance and less noise.
This one is fitted with: Power steering, electronic ignition, 8 spoke rims with mud terrain tyres, black chequerplate wingtops and bonnet, front A-bar with auxiliary lights, mudflaps, and towpack.
Inside it has 3 seats across the front and twin rear benches, making it a 7 seater at a pinch.
MILEAGE, MOT ETC
Odometer reading 137000 miles, and the V5 shows just 3 previous owners since 1988, and it appears to have had just one owner 1989 to 2022.
The previous owner, a retired gentleman who revives old land rovers as a hobby, found it in a barn in 2022, and it appears to have been there since at least 2005. He tells us he recommissioned it including, ( but not limited to)
- New radiator and fuel tank
- New front brake calipers and pads
- New rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders
- Engine removed and overhauled including new big ends, main bearings, piston rings and all gaskets and seals
- New gearbox seals
- New clutch inc hydraulics
- New shock absorbers all round
- New suspension turrets
- New silencer
- New headlamps
- New rear suspension bushes
- New battery
As it had been dry stored, the chassis was found to be in very good shape and didn’t require any welding.
Comes with MOT to the end of February 2024, and 6 months warranty on sale.
A unpretentious Land Rover, ready for work or play, on test on arrival it performed without apparent fault

*1988 registered but on a C plate hence DVLA recognise it as 1985-1986 – possibly previously an import?. But from the VIN and the early lift-handle doors, it was built 1983-84.
