motodrome offer for sale this 2008/58 Land Rover Defender 90 TDCi Heritage Evocation, finished in Grasmere Green with white roof.
Comes with the ‘HUE’ numberplate as shown in the photos, which is a nice touch and a nod to the first Land Rover HUE 166
When Land Rover announced Defender production was ending, they released 3 special editions, including the Heritage. This model proved to be so popular (and today commands high prices) that the demand was there for owners to have their Defenders turned into Heritage replicas, and this evocation is among the most accurate I’ve seen…
It’s in the correct colour scheme both inside and out, has the correct galvanised front bumper and grille, and the correct Wolf heavy-duty steel wheels (shod with a matching set of recent new tyres), full-length sidesteps, silver door hinges etc.
It’s also fitted with rear step, towpack, and rear mudflaps.
Inside it has the correct green centre dash panel and gearlever trims, and the seats have been recovered/replaced with the correct Land Rover HUE166 items.
It also has a nice woodrim steering wheel, a better stereo system than standard, and an immobilser
No chequerplate rash on this one, as is correct.
MILEAGE, HISTORY ETC
Odometer reading 105000 miles, and comes with history including original service book with 6 stamps in it, and a good selection of supporting bills.
Recent highlights include rear crank oil seal and gearbox spigot shaft replacement.
Last serviced at 96545m in Sept 2022.
This example was refurbished to Heritage specification in 2020 by NWD 4×4, who are well known for their Heritage conversions..
Although we don’t have a bill for it, we’re told it’s also had a stage one chip upgrade – as it doesn’t kangaroo at low speeds (as a normal one does) I’m inclined to accept this as true. We’re further told it had a new clutch 3 years ago although again we don’t have any documentation for it
We have the full book pack and 2 sets of keys and remotes
Comes with MOT to January 2024 and will come with 6m warranty too
Overall, a particularly nice example in my opinion, that drives just as a well cared-for one should. On our own website, you’ll find our usual two videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, which form part of the description.
