motodrome offer for sale this 1999/T reg Land Rover Defender 90 TD5, in six seater spec, finished in Green with white roof.
When this came into stock last year, it was fairly obvious that, whilst previous owners had spent quite a lot of money on the interior and mechanically, the front of the chassis was an absolute patchwork quilt in terms of plates having been welded on. We think it had been used for getting boats into and out of the sea.
We therefore took the decision to tear it apart and rebuild it on a brand-new Richards galvanised chassis, and this work has just been completed.
Obviously we didn’t just replace the chassis – it’s had all-new suspension and axle bushes, galvanised front bumper and front turrets, shock absorbers, steering components, UJ’s, brake pipes and lines, fully rebuilt rear brakes, etc etc, plus we took the opportunity to fit a new passenger footwell.
The bill to do this was pretty eye-watering but worth it – it’s now a Defender that should last a new owner a long time.
It already had a decent spec, including a refurbished interior with new Exmoor Trim front seats, cubby box, touch screen double DIN Android head unit with satnav capability, new steering wheel, new full headlining and carpeted rear load area, and twin rear benches.
Also fitted with alloys with a matching set of General Grabber tyres, sliding rear windows, Trucklite LED headlamps, replacement screen blocks, galvanised door hinges, factory folding sidesteps, chequerplate to wingtops and modesty covers, rear worklight, rear step, rear mudflaps, and adjustable towpack.
MOT, mileage etc
Odometer reading 116000m, and it’s just been fully serviced in our workshops with all fluids changed as well. It’s done less than 100 miles since rebuild.
It comes with MOT to the end of October 2020 (no advisories) and 6 months warranty on sale.
It drives absolutely superbly with a very willing TD5 motor.
