During ownership the Land Rover has had a lot of work including a galvanised chassis and bulkhead. A 4.2 V8 swap and auto box from an early classic Range Rover LSE. Other mechanical changes include full disc conversion with 110 vented front setup and wide offset challenger rims wrapped in the ever more popular Cooper Discoverer mud tyre.
As old Defenders go this one is actually quite pleasant to be inside apart from the odd drip of water that's made its way into the cabin from the various panel gaps a factory LR comes with. The TD5 dash and door cards modernise things a little and are complimented by leather heated seats.
Considering the agreed value on this LR is now £40,000 you'd need a country house with a barn to store it in for safe keeping. With room in the back for four adults on fold down seats this really is the perfect summer Cotswold all-terrain cruiser. Roof off down the by-ways or out shooting with the lads, just don't go hunting as you will scare off all the wild life before you even get a chance to load a gun!
