Land Rover Defender 90 (1987)
SAS (“Dinky”) Replica
Available for immediate sale at £7,250.
I have been the keeper of this vehicle for 9 years. I bought it in relative youth and initially intended to use it to tow other vehicles - anybody who knows the 2.5 N/A engine knows that the lack of turbo makes them no good for this purpose. So instead I decided to make this a unique project piece and set about making it an SAS Dinky replica after having been impressed by a similar project at a show.
Engine has a remanufacture plate dated 2000 and usually when this happens the Army puts on a new speedometer. Mileage reads approx. 6,500km, so the engine is young!
This vehicle is quite a rarity, but please bear in mind that obviously this vehicle is a replica built on a standard Land Rover 90 platform. There is still scope for cosmetic improvement and adaptations (i.e. gun mounts, side baskets etc) so suitable for someone who wants to tinker, however countless hours of labour have gone into the replication which is 95% complete.
The vehicle has been stored under cover in garage for last 5 years. Previous to this it was run fairly frequently, enjoying outings a couple of times per month and going to shows.
I do know some information about the vehicles’ military history before I took it over – happy to tell the story I know to interested buyers.
Bulkhead professionally repaired
The vehicle has recently had cam belt change including new tensioner & new FIP pulley
New lift pump
New glow plugs (c 1 year ago)
Injectors all recon’d
Under-sealed chassis with wax oil underbody seal
Full recent service
Included in sale (everything in the pictures)
Pipeline surveyers‘ tripod
Replica bar mines
Various pouches including equipment (S-10 respirators x 2, NBC suits x 2, binoculars)
Ammo tins x 4
Genuine British Army 1st Gulf War first aid kit
Copy of workshop manuals, service manuals, parts lists, blown-up schematics & wiring diagrams etc for this type of Land Rover (4 large ring-binders)
The vehicle is road registered and comes with V5 and number-plates.
However, because the vehicle has been in storage for 3 years it is sold without MOT.
[[ At extra cost, I also have a GPMG vehicle mount and ammunition tray which could be sold additionally ]]
The vehicle runs and drives well: I can supply videos via cloud link showing it out and about earlier this week.
It is a little sluggish on hills – some may class it as normal with an N/A engine. Going uphill the vehicle is currently topping out at about 40mph.
On flats power is very good.
Outstanding Works / Improvements
* At this moment in time horn is inoperative, will be looking at this and expect very easy fix
* Fuel pump timed correctly, but may require further work at a diesel specialist to tune FIP, which I believe will improve power by getting maximum performance out of FIP
* Takes a while to start – I suspect this is from fuel returning to tank, and when cranking this brings fuel back up to FIP. Definitely no fuel leaks.
* MOT required
Reason for sale
I am letting this vehicle go in order to free up space and time for my next project, and to pass it onto someone who has more time to run it out and enjoy it. There will also be other vehicles coming up for sale in the next few months for the same reason.
Any inspection is welcome. Viewers will find the vehicle totally solid, including the bulkhead. Vehicle is stored on a farm with access to private roads, so test drive can be arranged despite lack of MOT. Location OL10 2. I can answer any questions and will be totally upfront about all aspects of the vehicle, good and bad. This will be an honest sale of vehicle sold as seen. Cash on collection preferred.
Please note this vehicle is advertised elsewhere, and I reserve the right to withdraw it at any time. If you’re interested or have any questions, please get in touch.
2004 Land Rover Defender TD5
As seemingly everyone with an Instagram account continues to modify Defenders to chase the dream, it’s refreshing to see a Defender upgraded properly and coherently. This 2004 Land Rover Defender 90 TD5 is a perfect mix of show and go, with considered upgrades coming together to create an absolutely awesome yet usable Defender.
Professionally resprayed in original Land Rover colour Aintree Green Metallic, the car has been lifted 2 inches with uprated springs paired with ‘Spectre’-esque 16-inch beadlock rims and 35-inch tyres. Complimented with tinted windows and full de-chrome, the paintwork is in superb condition. The car has also been fully Waxoyl’d underneath and is rust free.
As handsome as the outside is, the interior is perhaps the real showstopper. A full tan leather interior by Lucari Solutions, featuring diamond stitch bucket seats and leather door cards, has been fitted as well as a forward facing rear seat conversion for the benefit of passengers. A Startech quick release steering wheel finishes the interior perfectly.
Having covered 61,816 miles, the car maintains its factory TD5 engine and boasts a full service history. A tastefully modified, properly built Defender finished in green - in our view, it doesn’t get much better.
The private registration number is to be retained by the current owner.
We bought the vehicle on from Harwoods Land Rover on the 31st January 1999 the mileage at that time was 19199 miles. Many service and repair bills including..New Fuel Tank..Rear Crossmember..Fuel Pump..Tyres..Battery..Rear Brake Drums and Brake Shoes..Power Steering Pump..Folder full of Service and repair Bills.. It Drives Perfectly but has some rust in the Bulkhead..A Pillars and Drivers Door..
