Mileage, history etc

This one known previously to us, has an odometer reading of  just 27000 miles, and has just emerged from a major programme of works by a very well known UK Land Rover specialist, who carried out most of the work detailed above, but have also recently carried out major work to the running gear including:

  • All new shocks, springs, turrets and bumpstops
  • All new brake calipers, pipes and hoses
  • New anti-roll bars
  • New steering damper

This has resulted in a 50th that drives superbly, is very surefooted, and performs without apparent fault – it’s a joy to drive. An opportunity to own one of the most iconic of the special edition Defenders, with a few extra creature comforts

History-wise we have the original 50th book pack including original service book with 9 stamps in it, bills going back to 2002, and old MOT’s.

It comes with MOT to April  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.
