1993 Land Rover Defender 3.9 V8 efi
A unique and capable (if dated) truck that can never be replaced
Previous owner messed with a non-compatible performance cam that resulted in having to rebuild the top of the engine ($$$$s). Since rebuild gone like a dream.
Both exhaust manifolds fractured and replaced.
Oil leak from gearbox.
Rust on doors/bulkhead.
This is an amazing vehicle and a true 4x4 in the old fashioned sense. It can go virtually anywhere and has good low end power, but is slow on acceleration. AC isn't that great. On long trips the metal under the seats gets really hot, but it is a pleasure to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
