It has no service history but has been serviced regularly. Costing 94 pounds a year fully comprehensive, 2 sets of keys. Drives as an old land rover should but with the benefit of extra power from the 200tdi, stopping well from the disk conversion, and easy on the arms steering from the hydraulic assisted steering. The engine is a 200 TDI diesel conversion and mated to the original 4 speed manual gearbox with Fairy overdrive.
The vehicle has a new steel side exit exhaust which is not too loud. The chassis was found to be in good condition when I bought the vehicle and has been treated with Waxoyl to prevent corrosion.The vehicle has been fitted with new parabolic springs and shock absorbers. The vehicle has aftermarket Haystee TDZ power steering system (link below) with all new brake lines. The vehicle has been fitted with Zeus Disc Brake conversion (will stop for the pedestrian crossing). Wheels are modular steel with nearly new BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A 235 85 R16. The bodywork has been re sprayed in 2-pack grey. The canvas tilt Hood is new and so is the galvanised frame it sits on.
Drop hitch tow hitch, which is adjustable in height. The interior is pretty much standard, the heater works, there is no stereo.The vehicle has defender seats and seatbelts fitted for safety (not required by Law) and aftermarket steering wheel and is otherwise standard. The land rover does not have a spare wheel but does come with compressor and tire sealer. Must be picked up within 7 days.
