2006 (55) Defender TD5 110 Station wagon

Sellers Comments -
This has only covered 37,000 miles from new and as you would expect is in fantastic condition for its age
It has a long MOT until 22nd July 2020

Originally was a military "white fleet" vehicle, hence the low mileage, it has been thoroughly modernised and gets looks wherever it goes

This is a factory station wagon model and is finished in Fuji White which is the white used on the very last of the Defender models from 2014-2016

There is a huge spec, too much too list but the main features are:

5x Black sawtooth alloys with a matching set of brand new A/T tyres
Electric front windows
Remote central locking 
Gloss black push button door handles all around
VGS panoramic rear window kit
NAS rear step
DRL front bumper
In built GPS sat nav infotainment system
Alloy gearknobs
Chrome interior handles
Every single light on the vehicle is LED
Gloss black KBX front grill and light surrounds
Gloss black kbx wing top vents
Full exmoor trim carpet set throughout
Stainless steel door threshers
Puma bonnet

Being a late model it has the Puma style doors all round which mean all the doors are made from zinc plated steel so do not rust like the earlier models

To help stop future corrosion, the rear body tub cappings where replaced with galvanised units so will never rust like a lot of these which can really let down the exterior of the Land Rover

The chassis is rock solid and has never had any welding and certainly doesn't need any.

A huge improvement over any standard TD5 110 is that is has been fitted with the later Puma front and second row seats. The front seats are slightly larger and more supportive but the real improvement is the second row seats as they are far more comfier and also look a lot more modern than the older 60/40 split seats found in all pre 2007 110 models. However to do this is not just a simple job and required the whole body tub being replaced with a Puma body tub to get this improvement in seating, so is a really good upgrade to have already done.

Being so low mileage this drives great and is nice and tight on the road and has no nasty clunks or bangs. It starts fist time every time and has recently just had a full service including every possible oil being changed in both axles, gearbox, transfer box and engine.

Chequer plate has purposely been kept to an absolute minimum with only a set of genuine Land Rover 3mm chequer fitted to the wing tops. A lot of the time chequer is used to cover up damaged areas of the body or to cover nasty repairs whereas there has been none of this on this vehicle. Even all of the original spot welds on all of the panels are still visible showing this is not a normal Land Rover of this age with numerous areas of filler!

It really doesn't want for anything and is ready to be used.
