Details >> LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90 1997 R reg TAXED MOT NO RESERVE | Auction Sale

MOT expires September 26th 2014

Road tax expires 31st march 2014

The V5, the TAX disc and MOT certificate are all with the vehicle.

This is a very dark green and almost matt paint colour all over. It has black chequer plate, The front bumper and rear cross member are painted the same green as the rest of the 90. It has a fully piped up snorkel. Aftermarket crystal type headlights. A sun roof. It is fitted with an alarm and central locking on the front doors and comes with 2 sets of keys and 2 key fobs. It has a de-cat front pipe and the rest of the exhaust is straight through but it does seem to make it more economical and a little quicker too. The chassis is solid with only surface corrosion in places. It has a set of 5 black painted, 16 inch, deep offset 8 spoke Weller wheels with 5 deep tread 265 75 16 Avon Ranger tyres fitted. The spare is on a swinging type carrier on the back door. All of the steering ball joints have been renewed and new front brake pads fitted. It has heavy duty Britpart springs fitted all round. It is very stable on the road and excellent off road. It drives in a straight line, It stops in a straight line and corners really nicely. It is also very, very quick. It doesn't seem to use any oil or water. All the filters were changed prior to the current MOT. All the transmission oils were changed just before I purchased it last year. It has had new front and rear crank oil seals and a new, full timing belt kit fitted. All the gears work as does the diff lock, engaging and disengaging correctly.  The heater works as do all of the lights and horn. There are security mesh panels fitted to the rear windows. The steering wheel is a 14 inch Mountney 3 spoke and its really nice to use compared to the standard, wide bus type steering wheel. The inside is nicely lined in black leatherette with some netting storage pouches on the side panels and the back door. The rear is black carpeted with a large embroidered Land Rover badge between the speakers. The roof lining is black, The sun visors are black, the front doors cards are black and trimmed with some land rover printed cloth as are the rear folding bench seats. The front seats have water proof covers fitted. There is a board that fits on some side rails in the back to make the floor area flat for the full width of the 90. The board is black carpeted and it has a large embroidered Land rover badge also. I used the board as a bed with storage underneath for camping gear and tools. It also seems to make it more handy for loading and carrying so that's the way it still is but the bench seats and seat belts will bolt straight back in if you want it that way.


 Please bear in mind that this is a 1997 vehicle and as such is quite old, it is used and has no warranty with it whatsoever, so I advise viewing before you bid so you can give the 90 a good going over and a test drive.
