1997 Land Rover Defender with 4.6L motor with 23k miles This is one of the cleanest and best Defenders around, the previous owner had installed a new 4.6 liter motor from Land Rover and it is much faster than stock 4.0's. I have driven others and it really makes a difference, with the new 4.6 liter motor it really moves, not sluggish like most D90's. The 4.6 ltr is a direct replacement - It was a brand new motor ordered from Land Rover - Cost was about 10k for the new motor. The top half of the motor still has appearance of a 4.0 but the bottom half of motor is brand new - This is a fairly common upgrade. There is no rust at all on this defender its been owned by guys that have lots of money and has been well taken care of- Car was owned by Robert Erwin - He is the guy that created Medal of Honor and Rock Band Video Games. The frame and body is absolutely flawless. This Rover is a blast to drive and really turns a lot of heads. -Auto -Tow Package installed -A/C Works great and blows cold -Heater / Defroster works great and blows hot -White hardtop with Grey interior -2 front seats / 4 back seats - 6 person capacity 130K miles - But it has a new 4.6 liter motor 10K installed at 107K by the Rover Shop in Houston w/ warranty and receipt -120K full service done -Alpine HD Radio w. dual Ipod hookups - 7 speaker system w/ subwoofer (5k custom stereo) -New brake booster installed for better braking -New fuel pump -New wiring harness and ecu -Grill guard and light guards installed w/ diamond plate protectors -Land Rover side steps

Jaguar Land Rover says key models in short supply, some have six-month wait lists

Fri, 08 Aug 2014

Care for a bit more proof that the Jaguar Land Rover portfolio of vehicles is the best it's ever been? Well, the Indian-owned pair of brands saw a record year in 2013, while 2014 has seen a 14-percent increase in sales. The crazy thing is, though, is that figure could be even higher, provided the company had the production capacity.
JLR is running a six-month waiting list on two of its most popular models, the Range Rover Sport (above) and Range Rover. According to Mark White, the company's chief technologist for body engineering, the blame can be placed on the paint shop at the company's Solihull factory, in the UK.
"We will probably max out the paint shop before we max out the body shop. Putting the second body shop in has given us the flexibility to ebb and flow the different models that go through there and meet the capacity demands we've got," White told Automotive News. "However, you always hit a bottleneck somewhere. And the paint shop is probably going to be the next biggest obstacle."

This Or That: 1987 VW Vanagon Syncro vs. 1987 Land Rover Defender [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Nov 2014

As I scoured auction sites and classified ads for the perfect vehicle to take into battle with Autoblog Associate Editor Brandon Turkus, I knew I needed to find something unique. You see, I'm currently 0-2 at winning a round of This or That, in which two of our editors agree on a category, choose a side, and argue it out over a (mostly) friendly chain of emails.
The first time we did this, my chosen Fiat 500 Abarth took about a third of the popular vote in our reader poll. The second time, my lovely 1980 Oldsmobile 442 did just a little bit better against a 1989 BMW 635 CSi. Despite holding the opinion that my automotive choices, though perhaps a little bit more... obscure than my fellow editors, are still better, an outright win would go a long way toward boosting my vehicular self worth a few notches upward.
With all of that out of the way, even if three isn't my lucky number after all, I go into battle against Brandon knowing full well that I've made the perfect choice: A 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro. My rough-and-tumble van/'ute has a formidable opponent in the form of a 1987 Land Rover Defender, which, truth be told, is exactly what I was expecting from Turkus, a self-proclaimed Rover aficionado.
