Interesting PX considered. As featured in LRO March 2020 edition and cover vehicle in LRO as picture above in 2002, then again with LRM in 2012. Highly documented early 90 County V8 pre production model.
One of the very first production Ninety County V8’s. A genuine short wheelbase station wagon County spec seven seater from 1985 with early ‘lift door handles’. Complete with ‘Alpine Roof Lights’ and headlining, with top of the range cloth trim and brown carpeting. Just 38000 warranted miles from new and totally original with galvanised capping and unpainted rivets, as it left the factory. Five speed gearbox and power steering as standard. To find one of these is extremely rare. There are far fewer 90 V8’s on the DVLA database than the 3 door Range Rover or even Triumph TR5’s.
This famous vehicle was featured as the cover story in 2002 by Landrover Enthusiast and again ten years later.

SALLDVBV7AA-233483 was built in March 1985, and left the factory after customary testing and inspection on March 28th. This date is before the Ninety V8 was actually announced and it remained unregistered until Sept 17th 1986. During these eighteen months, it remained the property of Landrover Ltd and was used as a factory demonstrator. On Sept 17th 1986, it was first registered to George Hassall, who was the Landrover Manager of Direct Sales Operations. On June 16th 1988, it passed into the private ownership of Mrs Bulley in Devon who used D216 CRW for hunting and who took the mileage up to 17000 with a letter of verification to that effect. I then became the new owner having bought it from the dealer in Paignton where Mrs Bulley traded it in. The next 21000 miles (to 38000) have all been done by me over the last nineteen years.
My first job was to oversee the full underbody protection treatment offered by Chris Parkinson of ‘Before N After’ in Newbury. This clear waxoil treatment after forensic cleansing was and still is the ultimate protection which avoids thick black underseal. All the original body colour still visible on the underside.
Over the years, I have had a couple of private plates fitted but it now reverts to the original D216 CRW as registered new. This is a recognised Landrover factory vehicle sequence number plate and indicates Landrover Ltd ownership from the period.
The Ninety was a cover feature on the May 2002 edition of Landrover Enthusiast magazine and a detailed history is delved into by the famed Landrover historian, James Taylor, the then editor. Ten years on, Landrover Monthly revisited with a further write up of some six full colour pages concluding that actually, this 90 V8 was more fun to drive than the current 90 offering from the factory. So the history and provenance of D216 CRW is immortalised in print for all to see in years to come. The mileage of 38000 is warranted and proven.
Chasing Classic Cars frontman and star, Wayne Carini once said, and I quote, ‘ A car is only original once’ and that is what we have here. All factory original body panels, paint, glass decals and County interior with headlining, and seven cloth seats. Even the glass is etched with D216 CRW security marks. The engine has never been out. This is not to say she is a ‘trailer queen’ but for the sake of utter originality, the car is presented in all original, as is, condition.
The vehicle comes with the original 205 60R16 road wheels as well as a set of wider sand/snow wheels and tyres as shown. A four barrel 390 Holley carb and sports manifolds with stainless steel exhaust aids breathing and makes for a wonderful soundtrack. This is the only under bonnet improvement made. Finished in Arizona Tan with beige cloth trim.
My utter pride and joy for 20 years which I have exhibited at the National Defender Day at Pentillie Castle taking pride of place as part of the Landrover Life Exhibition.
I will consider an interesting classic in px with pleasure
