Land Rover Defender 90 1992 200tdi Soft Top Rebuilt on Galvanised chassis

Sellers Comments - For sale is my very Land Rover Defender 200tdi soft top that has been rebuilt on a galvanised chassis a few years ago. Having that all important galvanised chassis does away with any future maintenance issues that Land Rover owners are only too aware of. MOT is until 24th August 2021 so a good 8 months. Has had a mere 3 mot's since its rebuild completed mid 2018 so really has done very little. Saying that it has been in use daily but only on road. Some of the recent parts include new tyres all round, wheels, shocks, springs, brakes, inter cooler, radiator plus many more. Being a soft top this is simply great in the summer plus it is still usable in the winter. The heater actually does keep it warm enough in the cab area. The sticks are the heavy duty type that will be a lot more safe than the cheap thin ones. Hood is in excellent condition and was new in 2018. Bodywork is excellent and very unusually straight throughout. Paint is finished in a raptor style super hard wearing finish. Will stay looking good for many years to come. Bulkhead is one of the best i have seen. I would assume this was changed in 2018 at rebuild. To the front is a bull bar with a snorkel fitted and in my opinion looks the part. To the rear is a swing away carrier. All tyres are recent on very presentable boost alloys. Inside is a nice place to be. It has 3 front seats all with belts. Present is the very expensive Exmoor trim moulded matting that covers the seat box plus the footwell area. These are about £450 and was a recent addition. To the rear i have fitted 2 forward facing lock and fold seats with brand new proper inertia seatbelts mounted to the heavy duty frame. Result is you would happily put your kids in the back in safety whilst folding them out of the way to free up load area. Never fitted these before, usually put in bench seats but these really do make it a practical 5 seater vehicle. On the road it drives as well as it should with crisp braking and smooth gear changing throughout. Pulls well and sits straight on the road with no wandering whatsoever. I am selling this as i bought it as a stop gap whilst my td5 is getting resprayed. Will probably regret selling this as we all know how reliable the 200tdi is. I am free for any test drive or inspection but of course within covid regulations.
