Fully rebuilt from new parts in 2014/15 on a new Richards galvanised V8 chassis, fitted with a professionally built and tuned Range Rover 4.8 litre engine.
This Defender 90 was specially built in order to match or exceed the likes of Overfinch Defenders in terms of performance, reliability and general useability. Long distance road use was an important consideration in the specification, whilst avoiding too much compromise in terms of off road capabilities.

This Defender was built to look near standard, and apart from the air scoop on the bonnet it could easily be mistaken for an XS Station Wagon.
The running gear was built for strength, performance and reliability - and it sounds like a proper V8. Being 1991 registered, there is no necessity for a power sapping catalytic converter. Regardless of that, when MoT'd (until Feb 2020), it's emissions were at the low end of the specified tolerances.
Perfectly useable as a daily driver, this Land Rover is easy to drive and will do everything a normal Defender should do, but better. It runs on standard unleaded fuel, and has power steering, traction control, an anti-lock braking system .... and air conditioning.
It has covered less than 10,000 miles since build without a problem.
It is correctly registered as a 4.8L and road tax is £245 a year.
It is MOT'd until February 2020.
This Defender is comprehensively insured as a classic vehicle with a reputable insurer, and the price I'm asking is in line with it's agreed insurance valuation.
Vehicle is located in Kingsbridge, Devon.
