Doubt there will be much interest in this on here, but.
1984 Land Rover 90 County Station Wagon (it is a CSW on the log book)
It was originally petrol now fitted with a 200tdi.
It had a Richards galvanised chassis fitted about 4 years ago (receipt for chassis change is about £4k)
I have just had a reconditioned main gearbox fitted as fifth gear had failed (still an LT77 box)
I had power assisted steering fitted (new steering box, 2nd hand pump)
Just had a replacement fuel pump and turbo fitted.
It is having a new MOT (it went in earlier this week and failed on lights, horn, probably dirty fuses or connection, as they were working before and axle oil seals) These are being sorted out.
It has a County interior with cloth seats (6 seater as it has a centre cubby box) seats aren't too bad but the fronts need a good clean, it does have a full headlining. No carpets and unfortunately a chequer plate floor in the rear.
The thing that let's it down is the bulkhead, it's starting to go and is not going to get better on its own, not desperate yet, but will either need repair or replacement in the next few years. The doors have a bit of aluminium corrosion at the bottom, but the frames still look ok.

I will get some up to date photos in the next couple of days, as it's currently at the garage.

The photo below is when I bought it, I removed and sold the winch bumper as I would never use it, now has a standard bumper fitted, I hated the wheels so had them swapped for standard steels. It still has chequer plate on the wing tops and the dreadful side steps, but I have removed it from the sills.

I paid £6k for it, easily spent a couple of thousand on it since, but would like to get somewhere near six for it to limit my losses.

If anyone wants to check the mot history the registration is currently SFE725, but it will be going back to B800VRH when it's sold

In a couple of the spares groups, I did try selling the truck cab one through Facebook, by the end I'd nearly lost the will to live. Loads of daft offers and people who told me what they thought was wrong with it, without seeing it. (It had a new MOT, new tyres and loads of new parts) Eventually sold it for £3k and really wish I hadn't. This one I just can't get on with and I now resent its constant demands for me to spend money on it.

Whereabouts are you? A friend says he wants one - I'm not convinced it's a brilliant idea given he took his Passat to the garage last week to get the wing mirror taped back on (no, really) and ended up with a £600 bill (yes, I know) but I gave up trying to talk sense into people a while ago...

That's lovely.
Sadly busy getting my 110 Hi-cap ready for sale, so no funds (Ooh and my House is upside down)

Good luck with the sale

A minor update, firstly I'm not ready for another Land Rover at the moment, I need the costly pain of this one to subside first.

It has now got a new MOT and I have taken the registration off online so as soon as the new V5 comes back it has to go, well as soon as I've cleaned it out and taken my mascot off.

It's still at the garage and he has got somebody interested in it (at £5k) If it's a straight cash, no WBAC shenanigans then I will probably take it. I just can't face dealing with people, especially those who look at the asking price and then start knocking money off to cover the costs of everything they want to do to it.

And as I dreaded, the cash in hand buyer has disappeared, so after another week I popped into the garage for a chat and it doesn't look like there is any serious interest in it. I need to get it home as it was up in the yard unlocked and I think people are confusing it with the ones being broken and starting to take bits off it. (Only lenses, but...)

It doesn't like too bad, until you start looking at this

I have stuck it on ebay. I did put it on one of the Facebook Land Rover groups, but have removed it after being told I was asking far too much ("can get a tidier td5 for that sort of money") and then printing off the mot history showing that it fails first time most years, to prove* that it's a bad one.

It's now keeping me awake thinking about what to do.

Unfortunately 90s aren’t worth defender money. No idea why as they’re virtually the same. I sold my V8 90 county years ago for 2k. Wish I hadn’t really, despite all the mither it caused me!

Sideways is the only way forwards!
