1996 Land Rover Defender 110 SW TDI 'Special Vehicle'. LWB Expedition Ready 4x4. Much loved vehicle - Engine replaced 6 months ago.

Sellers Comments - 


This listing is for our beautiful expedition ready Land Rover Defender. She has been our much loved vehicle for many years and no expense has been spared keeping her serviced, maintained and on the road.

It is with great sadness that we have come to sell our pride and joy, but we simply cannot afford not to. Genuine reason for sale, as they say =(

The vehicle was build in 1996 by Land Rover's "Special Vehicle Operations" department, according to the previous owner it was originally built on a government contract for the military, but we are not sure. There is a SVO plate under the bonnet.

There is 186k miles on the clock, although a reconditioned engine and cooling system was fitted 6 months ago at great expense. The work was carried out by a specialist defender restoration workshop following a head gasket failure. A new clutch was fitted at the same time.

It is fitted with: 

    *Roof-top tent ready Roof Rack (the tent in the photos is not included in the sale)
    *Rear ladder,
    *Rear light guards,
    *Full Chequer plate kit,
    *Rear door pad-lock hasp,
    *Bull Bar,
    *Land Rover alloy wheels,
    *General Grabber 2 All Terrain tyres,
    *Spare wheel,
    *Tow Bar,
    *Upgraded front and rear springs and shock absorbers,
    *Upgraded steering dampener
    *Electronic immobiliser and spare keys

It is fitted with 6 forward facing seats with seat belts (the rear 3 can easily be removed if so desired). Included in the sale are 2 rear bench seats with lap belts, taking the total seating capacity up to 12. 

It is painted with black, MOD anti-infrared military vehicle paint.

11 month's MOT - V5 document and partial service history present.

 *The offside rear door does not open. (Something has dislodged from the lock inside the door panel - I may or may not get round to fixing that before the listing ends).
*The back door doesn’t always lock properly - (I’ve replaced the lock, but it still doesn’t work. They never do - hence the big padlock hasp). 

Apart from that, she is a solid vehicle with a great chassis, a fresh engine, MOT and is ready for many more years of fun driving.
