LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90 4C 200TDI/ DISCOVERY RETRO COUNTY, VERY VERY SOLID 4X4 YOU BUY MINE WE MAY BUY YOURS DEALER FACILITIES C/CARDS
LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90
SHORT WHEEL BASE COUNTY
DISCOVERY 200TDI CONVERSION
1987, THIS TERRIFIC WORK HORSE OF A DEFENDER RECENTLY ARRIVED WITH US IN PART EXCHANGE. VERY BRIGHT AND TIDY FOR ITS YEARS WITH THE USUAL WEAR AND TEAR ONE WOULD EXPECT FOR A WORKING TRUCK OF THIS AGE. WHAT WE WOULD SAY HOWEVER IS THIS, UNDERSIDE YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A MORE ROCK SOLID EXAMPLE, OUR LAND ROVER MECHANIC WAS SUITABLY IMPRESSED AND WE THINK YOU WILL BE TOO.
WHIST IN HIS CAPABLE HANDS FOR SOME FINE TUNING AND FETTLING HE ALSO NOTICED THAT THIS EXAMPLE (AND AS DISCUSSED WITH THE LAST OWNER) HAS HAD A PROPER FACTORY RECONDITIONED 200TDI DISCOVERY ENGINE FITTED, NOTICEABLE BY ITS GOLD/ YELLOW COLOUR, THIS WOULD EXPLAIN ITS SERIOUS 'GET UP AND GO', IT'S CERTAINLY NO SLOUCH YET COMFORTABLY RETURNS 32+ MPG.
THE CURRENT OWNER ON THE LOGBOOK PURCHASED IT BACK IN 2008 AND HE FITTED THE ENGINE AND CARRIED OUT ALL ITS MAINTENANCE (MECHANICAL ENGINEERING BACKGROUND). NO SERVICE BILLS AND ANY PARTS REPLACEMENT INVOICES WERE SWALLOWED UP IN HIS OWN COMPANY RECORDS. SINCE WITH US WE HAVE FITTED ALL NEW DOOR LOCKS, TIGHTENED UP A ROCKER COVER BOLT (WEEP), AND ATTENDED TO SOME OTHER WEEPS, THE ENGINE RUBBER MOUNTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH SOFTER RUBBER, AT IDLE IT STILL HAS A LITTLE BIT OF VIBRATION BUT ON THE RUN IT'S FINE.
MILEAGE ON THE ODOMETER IS 168,000 MILES, BUT OF COURSE IT HAS HAD THE REPLACEMENT ENGINE FITTED IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. THE CURRENT MOT RUNS UNTIL AUGUST 31ST 2015. IT STARTS FIRST TIME EVERY TIME, NICE GEARBOX AND CLUTCH COMBINATION, HANDLES AND BRAKES AS YOU WOULD HOPE. THIS IS NO SHOW PONY BUT IT IS VERY BRIGHT AND HONEST, AND AS ALREADY STATED SHE IS VERY GOOD UNDERSIDE AND MECHANICALLY STRONG, OUR CUSTOMER NEEDED A RELIABLE VEHICLE TO TAKE HIM TO WORK AND UTILIZE AS A WORK VEHICLE AND THIS HAS DONE THAT JOB WELL FOR HIM THE PAST 7 YEARS, IT WILL NO DOUBT CONTINUE TO DO THE SAME FOR ITS NEW OWNER.

all viewings strictly by appointment only.
If you have less than 10 positive feedback, please make contact before you bid or your bid may be cancelled.
A £250 deposit will be required within 12 hours of the auction end and vehicle to be picked up withIN 5 days unless prior arrangements have been made.
payment can be made by cash, BANK transfer, DEBIT CARDS AND credit card (2.5% charge).
We are situated 5 minutes from Ringwood, Dorset, directly off the main A31 dual carriageway, Collection from Bournemouth/Southampton airports or Bournemouth train/coach station is not a problem.
Viewing and test drive most welcome, I am available days or evenings, but all strictly by appointment only. I would say that probably 70% of my stock sells before the end of E-bay classified/auction, either to quick thinking serious buying E-bayers, or via other forms of advertising and recommendation, therefore I do reserve the right to withdraw the vehicles from sale.
please! if you are going to ring me with an offer and i accept that offer, back it up, i have lost count of the number of people who once having agreed a price with me, then never show up. i am an honorable decent chap and simply expect the same from others.
I do prefer to speak to prospective purchasers direct, I believe you can get a much better idea of who you are dealing with by phone, besides I'm hopeless on the keyboard!. But either is OK. Any other concerns or questions you have please don't hesitate to get in touch.
All the best. Good luck and perhaps we'll speak with you soon.
