For sale through AB 4x4s and nearing completion is a very nice example of an ex military 24v soft top Land Rover Defender 90.
It’s military Registration number was 56 KJ 79
Released from the military in 2003 it was declared manufactured in1991 with a mere 3 former keepers from new.
It comes with a full MOT for the new owner.
Has a mere 90k miles from new with the 2. 5 NA engine running perfectly returning respectable mpg.
All of the military parts work as they should with the addition of the winter pack. One great feature is the Webasto heater under the bonnet that is plumbed in to 2 military radiators in the tub. This would have been used in cold conditions with no need to run the engine. Another unusual feature is the heated front windscreen which as we know does tend to steam up .
Chassis is absolutely perfect being a heavy duty one. We needle gunned it then applied black Shutz throughout. Result is it looks like new with no rust or patches.
Bulkhead was 90% but now completely sound with picture to prove. We have professionally repaired 2 areas by means of flush welding so as to hide the repair. This is one of our many specialities here at AB4x4s. We do not use fibreglass and filler to repair bad metal!
We have installed a brand new front wing skin and wing front where there was previous damage negating the need to use bucket loads of filler that can crack in time.
We are adding new suspension, brakes, props and uj’s as well as a new exhaust.
We have done a full body resto in Nato green.
To the rear is a useful tow bar and single electrics.
All in All this is a superb opportunity to acquire a piece of military history that has been correctly refurbished. It will prove a sound investment whilst being multi purpose. Great is the mud and snow and even better in the sun with the canvas off.
