motodrome offer for sale this, one of the very last registered, 1998/S Land Rover Defender 90 300TDi soft top in 6 seater spec, finished in Blue with new Exmoor Trim soft top.
This one has just emerged from a comprehensive refurbishment, inspired by both the factory 2015 Heritage edition, but also the beautifully-crafted ‘retro’ examples that Cool n Vintage ™ are famous for producing. All topped off with a HUE registration number as a finishing touch.
The retro – heritage look includes:
- Colour coded wheelarch eyebrows, Wolf style wheels (shod with a matching set of Goodyear Wrangler MT tyres), headlamp surrounds and mirror faces
- Heritage Grille
- Galvanised front bumper and rear tub trims
- Metal vent grilles and stainless steel bolt kit
Inside, the retro – heritage theme continues with a gorgeous pair of brown with ivory piped front seats, a pair of rear benches in matching colour, and a woodrim steering wheel.
It’s further fitted with uprated headlamps, mudflaps all round, adjustable towpack (excluding ball), electric front windows, and centre cubby box.
No chequerplate rash whatsoever as befits one inspired by the 60’s and 70’s look.
MILEAGE, HISTORY ETC
Odometer reading 146000 miles and comes with history including original service book with 18 stamps in it, and a good selection of bills and previous MOT’s. V5 only shows 4 previous keepers. The previous owner advises us it was fully serviced including oil/filters, new aux belt and tensioner, thermostat and coolant replacement, and the fitting of new Terrafirma heavy duty steering rods etc just before it came to us.
Being a factory 300TDi version, it nips along nicely with good punch from the Turbodiesel motor, and it looks absolutely stunning as well.
It comes with MOT to January 2022 (no advisories) and will come with 6 months warranty on sale.
Amazingly, according to the MOT database it’s never failed an MOT on structural corrosion issues since the system went live in 2006.
I can confirm that the original chassis number and engine number are present and correct and matching the V5, and hence, under current regulations, there’s no reason why it can’t be imported to the US from the end of August 2023
On test on arrival it performed utterly faultlessly, as you’d expect.
At the very bottom of the page, you’ll find our usual two videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, both of this particular example.
