1988 Land Rover 90


  • Highly regarded 300 Tdi engine installed
  • Equipped with a brand new, unused Landtrekker 2-3 berth roof tent 
  • Full replacement modified galvanised chassis 
  • Equipped with an exterior roll cage
  • The interior now includes lockable storage and a table
  • Numerous new parts including suspension, brake pipes, side-exit exhaust and lights

The Appeal

If we were to venture off the beaten track in a classic Land Rover, this 90 would be a strong contender. Weather-proofed with a new galvanised chassis especially modified for this vehicle and equipped with a number of upgrades including the revered 300 Tdi engine and a brand new Landtrekker roof tent, this Land Rover is ready to get its wheels muddy.
It’s often cited that half the world’s population’s first encounter with a car has been with a Land Rover - exemplifying that these are the vehicle of choice for accessing hard-to-reach places. It’s also said that over 70 percent are still on the road and this one has been given a new lease of life. With numerous new parts fitted including suspension, brake pipes, side-exit exhaust and lights, it still has plenty of years of service left to give and would be the perfect choice for overland expeditions.

The History and Paperwork

  • MOT valid until 1st of October 2024
  • Large file of invoices for parts and serving in recent years
  • 109,283 miles indicated - which would appear to be correct from the MOT records
  • An invoice from 4 Muddy Feet for the 2013 work amounts to £14,086.36 and a further invoice from later that year totals at £6,595.91
  • Several over invoices detail services over the past decade
  • Five previous keepers
  • V5C present

The Interior

  • OEM Land Rover cloth seats with grey vinyl bolsters
  • Some slight fading, wear and discolouration to the fabric - but certainly nothing excessive
  • Currently configured as a two-seater
  • A useful cubby box sits between driver and passenger
  • Lockable glovebox added, courtesy of The Gear Shop
  • Three-spoke sports steering wheel fitted
  • An inclinometer has been added atop the dashboard
  • All rubber matting presents well with light wear
  • In the rear, we find a lockable storage box with drawer - likely designed for storing shotguns
  • A useful shelf is included, as is a folding table which affixed to the inside of the rear door
  • The roll cage fits through the roof and also forms a partition between front and rear

The Exterior 

  • Attractive green paintwork, which really suits this vehicle
  • The roll cage continues on the outside
  • A roof rack supports the roof tent
  • Brand new, unused Landtrekker 2-3 berth roof tent reportedly in excellent condition
  • Uprated steel wheels with wide off-road tyres
  • The bodywork is reasonably straight overall, with the usual small dents you’d expect to see with a Land Rover of this vintage
  • Some electrolytic corrosion around the lower alloy bodywork which looks to have been treated to prevent its progress
  • The bodywork is bobbed behind the rear mudguards and meets with the additional heavy duty bumpers - taking the place of the conventional rear crossmember
  • Heavy duty, modified galvanised chassis which still looks in excellent condition
  • Treadplate affixed to the wing tops
  • Beer bottle opener fitted at the rear - strictly for passengers of course…

The Mechanics 

  • Now fitted with the eminently desirable 300 Tdi engine
  • Five-speed manual gearbox
  • Overdrive
  • Equipped with a snorkel
  • Side-exit exhaust fitted
  • The vendor reports that it runs and drives very well, with no apparent faults


With a raft of upgrades fitted, this well sorted Land Rover 90 is ready to enjoy. So what are you waiting for? Let’s off-road!
