Landrover defender 110 TD5 2002

Here we have our 2002 defender 110 with the well renowned TD5 engine fitted from new

We purchased this Landy with the sole intention of fitting sets of rear seats and fitting the panoramic side windows in but I have been offered a super smart110 double cab that I really want and have been chasing it for a while now so this one is now surplus to requirements.

This particular 110 was chosen as it was a great example to start with and a good basis for me to do some little mods to make it a bit nicer to use on the road - certainly very straight for a 2002 landrover 110

The mechanicals are all exactly as expected and work like they should - high/low gearbox operates fine - engine starts on the button first time every time and gets up to temps with no issues - brakes are spot on and suprisingly strong actually - gearbox is the five speed manual

The exterior does look as good as the pics, panels are super straight with very few blemishes other than the usual landrover dinks that you get from the large rear panels flexing. It gets polished and comes up very well indeed. 
Door bottoms internally are not the usual Landy rotten items so is suspect these may have been replaced in the past.
Seats are in great shape with mo rips or tears and only very slight wear to be expected. 
Cd player fitted in centre console with under dash speakers 

Rear load has been carpeted to the sides, roof and floor area to make it a bit better should you have any passengers - one side bench seat already fitted with belts
Overall a lot nicer than an empty back that's for sure  

Everybody knows defenders have chassis problems if not looked after and this one is fine. Has had some repairs in the past and I have the reciepts for all of the work undertaken

At around 100k miles in Jan 2013 the Landy had quite a lot of work done at the previous owners expense - another reason why I bought it ! 

Jan 2013 - new rear crossmember  - various bushes - oils - filters - chassis treatment with a general overall and service - total £1800 !!!

modular wheels fitted with decent tyres with life left in them - some suspension replacement in the past as it's not original but lift/make unknown - rides well

Most recently - last week I have replaced all the filters again with fresh oil and a general service and inspection at the local landrover garage.

So there it is - a well presented defender 110, is a bit too good for off-roading as it's nice and straight but would certainly make a good base for it should you wish.  Will happily take the kids to school or take ya mates green laneing and it's not been modified or played with so there's plenty of scope to personalise yet

The fuel pump is a bit noisy and as I am quite picky this will be getting replaced early next week and it's booked in for Tuesday - if it sells before I will happily deduct this cost from the sale price - either way it's fine with me.

As stated this is a recent purchase to me and I have the green slip from the V5 but awaiting the full logbook from the dvla so bare that in mind. If you have any doubts pleases don't bid as I want a hassle free sale - see my feedback - genuine ebayer.

Only for sale as I am looking to get my mates double cab as I said earlier but this is not a rushed or forced sale so please keep the silly low ball offers to yourself. All genuine interest is very welcome
