For sale through AB4x4s Cleveland and on behalf of a customer is this high spec, newly rebuilt nut and bolt Land Rover Defender 90 hardtop.
Has a current MOT until 16/ 04/ 2024 and passed with no advisories. Since MOT it has covered a mere 135 miles since last MOT and rebuild.
So story goes this like this- The former keeper bought it over 22 years ago and drove it for around 4 years. He then parked it up in his garden where it stayed until only last year when he decided to do a full rebuild, adding a Disco 1 300 tdi low mileage engine £90K) and the matching automatic gearbox. This would have probably been a 2. 5 diesel NA or a 2. 5 petrol. Anyone who knows the 300tdi knows its the one to have giving plenty of power, great mpg’s and seriously reliable with no ecu to go wrong. He changed the all important timing belt leaving no future worries for the new owner.
The auto box makes this perfect for people that hate gearchanges (me for one). Also for people with a bad left leg or foot.
As he wanted this to be a keeper he bought a brand new Richards galvanised chassis and a galvanised bulkhead at a cost of around £4k. Galvanised door thresholds were also added as these are prone to rust.
- So during the rebuild he added a full polybush kit making this seriously low maintenance for the future.
- He added expensive Terrafirma shocks and springs all round to make handling more predictable.
- The complete exhaust is brand new as is the fuel tank and sender.
- The brakes are all new to include flexis, callipers, pads and brake pipes.
Steering is all new to include swivels.
- He added 4 x brand new Comforser 285/ 75r/ 16lt GF3000 at a huge cost of £600 with new Wolf wheels for over £300.
Under the bonnet really indicates that this is a new build with new alternator, radiator and many other parts that is important to add for future reliability.
On the inside are 2 x XS trim defender seats with 2 x forward facing rear seats that fold into the sides. We will add seatbelts to these for the new owner. There is a new genuine Land Rover rear tub mat fitted making it easy to keep clean.
There are 2 charge points on the middle dash for your devices and a nice Kenwood stereo to listen to your favourite songs.
A roof light is fitted with a switch making it easier on these dark mornings.
On the outside there is a rear tow bar and NAS step. The cappings on these early 90’s were galvanised so no rust issues to worry about.
Both front doors are in great shape as is bodywork in general. It’s no show winner but very presentable and usable. To the front there is a new snorkel, never used and a chequer plate kit fitted. The headlights are the expensive led ones for better nigh time vision.
So as can be understood now, this is a super opportunity to buy a really well sorted Defender that will require so little maintenance. It will go anywhere you point it in and will cost so little to run. These are increasing daily and better news still, it is tax and mot exempt in around 2 years! It will not rust or corrode as standard ones do and should prove super reliable.
