1984 Land Rover 90
Long time, first time...
Been a reader for a while and am committed to getting more active, as I'm very seriously considering a new toy.
I'm looking at a 1984 90 that was restored 6 yrs. ago in the UK. Good looking truck that needs some detailing and cosmetic work. The truck has it's original diesel engine, which I'm warned has only ~68 HP and is a slow ride. Wouldn't be an every day driver, but wondering if any one has experience / insight into that power plant and whether or not it's practical for semi-regular grocery commuting in the City?
Any other major items / issues I should be cognizant of? The truck is being sold by a specialist that has restored Defenders for many yrs. and seems very knowledgeable, but would love some objective advice.
If anyone knows of any good literature I can look into (aside from this super helpful forum), that too would be appreciated.
thanks for all the help, Mark
