1988 LAND ROVER DEFENDER 110 Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel


$129,000 USD

We're pleased to present this incredible, bespoke 1988 Land Rover Defender 110 equipped with a venerable CUMMINS R2.8 TURBO DIESEL crate engine and a smooth-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission.

It is finished in stunning Santorini Black with a custom, two-tone interior in supple Bonsmarabrown and black African leather with contrasting white stitching. With a full 9-passenger capacity (2 front, 3 middle, 4 rear seats), this is a one-of-a-kind restoration/custom build that will accommodate you and 8 of your best friends in complete comfort and style – on or off-road.

The complete drive train is NEW, with power disc brakes at all four corners. And, you'll need 'em considering the Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel delivers 161 horsepower and a whopping 310 lb-ft of ground-pounding torque. The Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel and 6L80E transmission installation was professionally carried out by the Team here at Osprey Custom Cars, LLC in Castle Hayne, NC – the world leaders in Cummins-powered Defenders.

The unique Front Runner "Gullwing"-style cargo area windows replace the rear windows of the Defender allowing easy access to the cargo bay via the side of the vehicle. While built for off-road durability and ease of use, the Front Runner aluminum "Gullwing"-style cargo area windows look smart and were designed to blend seamlessly with the original exterior styling of the vehicle.
