1999 Land Rover Discovery SD

SUPER CLEAN, California rust-free 1999 LandRover Discovery I, an all-original SD model. This DI is the last and the most sought-after year model of the DI, with the desirable Central Differential Lock ( CDL) and solid roof; thus NO leaky sunroofs to contend with, ever.
Solid TWO-OWNER California Land Rover, residing here all of itslife since being purchased new. Try to find that in an East-coast car, where the whole underside is likely corroded away and impossible to repair !
This Discovery I iscompletelyoriginal, exactly as it was originally built. Approximately 123K original miles. EXTREMELY LOW for a DI. Stock 4.0L engine runs EXCELLENT. It starts immediately, idles and drivesflawlessly, quietly and smoothly on both town and on the highway.
There isNO rust nor corrosion on this vehicle anywhere as it would be expected from any California-lived Land Rover ( hard-pressed condition to find in any beyond the Sierra mountains). BEWARE OF RUST BUCKETS COMING FROM THE EAST COAST~! ( it's beyond me why anyone would want to buy an East coast car with potential hidden rust, which is unrepairable ).
This Discovery I comes fully equipped with most standard features available at the time of production such as:
* Roof bars* Last-year Central Differential Lock* Updated interior* NICE TWR alloys ( same as the Defender)* New tires* Factory Towing package* The most crucial service item, a complete top end rebuild at 95K. All seals, head gaskets, plenum and valve cover gaskets
* Detailed service records, to include:- New brakes- New wheel bearings- New water pump- New Brake master- New Fuel pump- New BOSCH Battery- New Radiator- New Expansion tank- New Brake regulator valve - New plug wires - New alternator- New Platinum spark plugs- New muffler- Replaced OEM mud guards

Clean factory 16" TWR alloy wheels,along with a nearly-new set ofradial tires mounted on them ( with approximately 95% tread remaining).

Stock 4.0L engine runs very well. As it is well documented in all Land rover circles, the 4.0L GEMS motor was an improvement over the earlier 3.9 engines as it was more robust and had more torque as a result of engine redesigning to increase displacement to a more efficient, reliable motor.
NO overheating issues to contend with. NONE. Automatic transmission shifts well into all gears. Four-wheel Power disc brakes brake smoothly without pulsation.Power steering,Power windows ( all four work), Power mirrors,Power HEATED seats ( both work), cruise control, factory stereo andcold A/C.Transfer case and differentials engage smoothly and precisely, without noises, crunching or sloppiness.

Finish is still in its original Special-order Rutland Red factory finish ( more of a wine color), with NO oxidation present on the roof or hood clearcoat ( common ailment in all Land Rovers). Still shines quite nicely.The body, chassis, floorboards, door sills, undercarriage and every single angle and seam are super solid and completely RUST-FREE, amazing considering this Discovery is nineteen years young !
Its original Connolly tan leather upholstery is in remarkable condition and has held up very well.There are no cracks or tears on any of the leather bolsters in the seats.No rips, tears or seam splits. Overall, avery clean originalinterior, door panels, perfect dash and factory original carpeting.

The photos show this Discovery I accurately. NON SMOKER vehicle, ever. A very solid, SUPER CLEAN rust-free unrestored classic, with better-than-average miles and an excellent 4.0L engine. It runs very well with a strong, solid powertrain. Drives very nicely on the freeway.Clean chassis, with no tweaks, no alterations, norust and a very nice original interior. It will make an excellenttraveler or overlander, camping vehicle or just a fun Land Rover to drive aroundas it is. This DI is turn-key ( 2 keys).
* My nearly 1300+ all-positive feedback and the vehicle's condition and photographs speak for themselves.

I am a Land Rover enthusiast for sure. I've been around Land Rovers for over 30 years, and have owned various models and vintages.Unlike the vast majority of sellers who simply sell what they do not know ( let alone car dealers!), I proudly own a Land Rover ( actually, I still own three: a 2010 Sport, a 2004 HSEand a Discovery II) and I am fairly familiar with all their quirks.

Feel free to call me with serious, pertinent questions at (650) 430-4660 PST. I have priced this Discovery I SD at fair-market to sell.This is a last-year of the DI, before it stopped being manufactured and the early Discoverys became part of automotive history.You simply cannot find these anywhere this clean, for this price.
Land Rovers are the best investment for the money, specially clean, rust-free examples such as this one.
