Use: This was my daily driver during summer months on Nantucket. I have put 1,000 trouble free miles (26-28mpg) on her this summer since purchase; my 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon saw less than 150 miles of use this summer. I depend on my car for making 5-10 house calls per day, nd this car was an absolute blast to drive and a hit with the clients. I checked and change all fluids regularly.
Condition: Fully restored, ERO rust on chassis, utriggers, ootwells, nd bulkhead. Mechanically working 100%.-Door bottoms minimal rust at the usual corners. -Rear door with rust and debris along bottom internal channel. These can be had in factory OEM new, olor matched for less than $800 delivered from the UK. It does not need to be done, ut being a perfectionist, priced it.-Headliner is OEM with a sag here or there. Sunroof is leak free.-This is NOT a better than new, 100k trailer queen. It is, owever, he nicest Defender 90 that you will find oneBay below $60k and is far and away much nicer than the usual polished turds in the 40-60krange with the substandard and unreliable 3.5l V8 or 2.5 NA/TD engines.-Front bumper has surface rust (see photos); easily replaced for fresh, ew galvanized unit for $150. Again, ot needed.
Reason for sale: I have a 1993 110 restoration project and a 1994 conversion project in the works, oth of which I would like to complete over the winter for island work next summer. As such, need to clear the plate and get to work.
