Flew to Phoenix with a buddy of mine, bought from somewhat unscrupulous buyer, but it had a CA title still and ZERO rust. Trans seals leak a bit, transfer case leaks a bit, but she drives fine and we drove it back here from Prescott. Motor strong and cools really great which surprised me.

 

When I was in school I looked for this exact spec car, never could find a running model. Now that I have one coming from the D3, it is cool that you can get to everything without using a GAP tool. It's home now, use it to drive to work and back. True what they say about the R380, it drives like a little tractor. 

 

Still on the fence about keeping it, found another one identical to it that spent its whole life in WC... if anyone is interested just drop on by. May end up being full CT homage... side note if anyone has a defender voltmeter from the 80s-90s I need one...

Cool. That looks like my manual transmission D1 did in 2004 when I got it. Nice find. If you're gonna wheel it hard look into the Ashcroft under drive if you can find one.

Brings memories of my first LR 300Tdi manual 3 doors, I loved that thing... here in 1994 just 4-5 months old, the only LR I bought new:

I wish I could have seen them when new! I wish I had that motor.... but so far no complaints with the V8.

The underdrive is pretty amazing...if you can actually find one.

Nothing sad! I just don't want her sitting around when someone else could be tinkering! On the hunt for defenders if I move...

Talk about relationship crazy. Do it in another language. At least no matter where I go there will be rovers to love... ;)

General update:

 

Trimmed the front OEM plastic bumper, clipped the corners. Adjusted the headlamp beams. Changed the trans fluid to Redline MTL. She seems very happy. Still hunting down a few electrical gremlins but I need to find a place that will steam clean both the engine bay and drive train. Hoping after winter if she stays she'll be clean and leak free! And if she leaves someone will get a nice happy rover with less mysteries than when I got her. 

 

Love these chunky doors! I don't miss all the weird voltage issues!

Update:

 

alternator quit on the way back from SJ. She was in SJ to get steam cleaned! motor, drivetrain are pretty spiffy now!

 

Need to put that CT volt meter in where the radio used to be... might have saved me. Oh well. Hopefully she gets smogged next week and I'll have a new title/tags issued. 

 

Really thinking about Switzerland...
