1988 Land Rover Defender 90. It is a left hand drive vehicle with factory A/C
that I recently imported from Italy. Overall the truck is in very good shape with no rust and less than average
wear and tear. It is equipped with a 2.5 liter turbo diesel engine and 5 speed manual transmission. All of the
mechanicals on the truck work well with no signs of excess wear. The truck has new springs and shocks all around
that lift the truck about 2". The exterior of the vehicle has a recent paint job that was done to a good standard. There are some small marks
from use that would easily buff out if desired. There is some slight aluminum corrosion visible under the paint on
the lower edge of the doors. Unfortunately this is unavoidable on any older defender due to a design flaw by Land
Rover. The only fix for this is a new set of door skins which are relatively easy to install and I can provide if
desired. This is a very nice Defender that is in drive-away condition and is ready to be a daily driver or taken
off road.

Jaguar Land Rover opens first overseas factory in China

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 18:03:00 EST

Anyone who's a car fan knows that Jaguar and Land Rover cars and trucks all come from the UK. And while we don't doubt that will remain true for the most part, it won't be an absolute truth for long, as the British automaker has just opened its first factory overseas.
Its new plant in Changshu, China, is the result of a $1.8-billion joint venture between JLR and local automaker Chery. It covers some 4.3-million square feet and will, once at peak capacity, produce 130,000 units specifically for the Chinese market, where JLR sells over 100,000 vehicles each year to make it the company's single largest market worldwide.
Production at what's officially known as the Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Company will start with the Evoque, of which one in five globally are currently sold in China. Production will eventually encompass three models. We already know that the Discovery Sport will be next, but the third model line has yet to be announced. JLR has confirmed, however, that the Changshu plant will produce unique models and derivatives specifically for the Chinese market, so we wouldn't be surprised to see a long-wheelbase version of the forthcoming XE or next-generation XF assembled there to satisfy local tastes.

Ford's J Mays feels vindicated by Fusion reception

Tue, 25 Sep 2012 16:30:00 EST

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
