Specification etc

50ths are fitted as standard with automatic transmission, anti-roll bars, air conditioning, factory Safari  rollcage,  cubbybox, rear bulkhead deletion, NAS rear step, full-length chrome sidesteps, and pewter alloy wheels (shod with BFG all-terrains) all of which this retains.

This one has just emerged from a full refurbishment by an expert in the model, and has, unlike most of them, been returned to as original a specification as possible to when it was new, with no dubious ‘personalisation’ added, and should now be one of the finest on the market.

Mileage, history etc

The restorer tells us that he elected to keep it on the original chassis rather than go for a galvanised replacement, as in his opinion the chassis is in really good condition and originality was the over-riding aim.  

He further tells us that the restoration included:

  • Full chassis inside and out dinitrol treatment by dinitrol fully authorized centre
  • Bulkhead and all voids dinitrol treated
  • New correct-period doors all round
  • New glass all round
  • New rubber seals all round
  • New body cappings (both sides)
  • Full bare metal respray
  • Refurbished alloys
  • New tyres

And mechanically

  • Engine and transmission stripped and reconditioned where necessary
  • New fuel lines
  • New discs and calipers all round 
  • New shocks and springs

And interior

  • New old stock seats and carpet 
  • New headlining

Odometer reading just 85000 miles, supported by history including 10 stamps in the original service book, and with the special 50th book pack. Last serviced at 84765m in October 2019 by a Land Rover specialist.

It comes with MOT to March 2021 and 6 months warranty on sale. .

At the bottom of the page, you’ll find our usual 2 videos – a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions.

We also have the number plate ‘DEF 90L’ on retention and available by separate negotiation, which can be allocated to any Defender.
