This one is a weird one. It's a right-hand-drive, U.K.-spec 1990 Land Rover Defender 110 County Estate -- and the seller wants $90K.

You can get a nice, modern Defender for less.

Then again, this is a rare bird. It's got a diesel engine, a five-speed manual transmission, and 144,000 kilometers on the clock.

The engine has been rebuilt and much of the other mechanicals have been replaced/kept up to date. So, too, have many convenience features. There is a premium audio system and a CB radio.

The list of replacements/upgrades is long and you can click here to check it out.

    90K is smoking crack, and right hand drive is no fun at all.

      I take that comment personally. You don't even know me!

    $90k for a 33-year-old vehicle, and the seller posts a measly 7 photos, including zero of the underside, or closeups of any kind?


  • Crtfour It's long before the first recall?
  • Oberkanone You get a workout driving an Opel GT compared to driving experience of today. No power steering, manual transmission, and just getting into and out of the car requires extreme physical flexibility. I favor the Saab Sonett III over the Opel GT. If I'm buying a tiny two seat 1972 odd car I'm going all in.
  • Lou_BC Ford's on strike. Using photos of Fords is like crossing a picket line. ;)
  • Lou_BC Not my problem. Buying anything on credit is a risk for buyer and seller.
  • Theflyersfan They could also haul dead, leaking cows. Before Top Gear, I'm sure none of us knew that. And at least one person was murdered in or around his car.
