For sale through AB 4x4s is this rarely available Land Rover Discovery 2 Td5 that has been rebuilt on a galvanised chassis. This of course is such an advantage over the usual chassis issues associated with these vehicles, and often renders them scrap. It has a mere 3 former owners from new and was purchased from a chap in Scotland who owned it since 2004 and was meticulous about the longevity of his vehicles hence the huge list below-
ENGINE- This appears to run as it should having been serviced every year. This week we have performed a full service. New turbo recently fitted. ecu has been chipped so goes well. We have fitted a new fuel pump last week. Also brand new rocker cover gasket and cam shaft front seal. We have just replaced the injector harness simply for prevention purposes as if left unchanged these can leak into the ecu which is catastrophic. Service history is present in a stamped service portfolio up to October 2005 after which the chap serviced the car himself. Quite a handy man as he undertook all the work on it.
GEARBOX- This is manual and changes gear really smoothly. The gearbox had been refurbished and filled with easy slip fluid along side the oil. We are informed that the previous owner fitted a recent new clutch. This does appear evident but i must point out that from cold in the morning it makes a short small noise for a second or so. This noise then disappears until the next day. It appears only in reverse for some reason. Does not affect its operation whatsoever. This could be due to it not being run for some time and may go after some use. We just like to give an honest description.
BRAKES- Brand new handbrake shoes, rear discs, pads and calipers. Stops perfectly with no issues.
RUNNING GEAR- Axles rebuilt and filled with easy slip fluid along with oil. Polybushed throughout so no need to change bushes. Fitted with expensive Bilstein suspension components. Brand new coil spring conversion and new rear anti roll bar link. Expensive stainless steel exhaust from the manifold should never need to be changed.
INSIDE- WOW! The leather seats are the best i have seen, front and back with very minimal wear. Electric everything. Things appear to work but not everything tested so please feel free to view. Dash in superb condition as can be seen.Recent upgraded Alpine stereo with all the features paired with a top quality Harmon Kardon sound system. The result is a top quality sound. It's a really lovely place to be! Just to note one of the small boot seats does not lock into place as it has a faulty catch. May need WD40. Headlining is the usual droopy one and it appears some trim is missing at the top of the windscreen. I believe the windscreen is recent and when fitted they forgot to fit the trim back on.
OUTSIDE- Well for a Land Rover of this age it really is very presentable as can be seen in the photos. Had work to the arches and still solid. Has the useful tow bar and twin electrics so would make a superb tow vehicle.
TYRES- Very recent with little wear. Fitted to beautiful alloy wheels in fab condition. Really do set the car off.
CHASSIS- This was a in great condition so was shotblasted then hot galvanised dipped. These chassis are renowned for failing so this makes this car a real "no brainer".
So in conclusion this Discovery 2 should prove a life long friend lasting the test of time and costing little to maintain having had a massive amount of previous work done. We have reduced the price as we need the space for our other renovations. We can arrange delivery at £1.10 a mile one way.
