Land Rover Defender 110 Ex MOD 300TDI conversion with Penman trailer

Sellers Comments -Land Rover Defender 110 Soft top Ex MOD complete with Penman trailer This Land Rover spent a lot of its earlier life deployed overseas in a drier climate and as such, the bulkhead, chassis and doors are all in excellent condition. There are no rust issues at all that i can see. The body is very straight and tidy with minimal dents for a Land Rover of this age, although it does have the standard MOD paint job (i.e. slapped on thick). The interior is very much as you would expect from an Ex MOD Land Rover, the dash is tidy and retains the rotary light switch but there are no floor coverings or creature comforts. The front seats have been upgraded from the original square squabs to civvy spec Defender seats that have been retrimmed with exmoor trim vinyl. In the rear there are x4 2 man benches, making seating for 10. The hood is in overall good condition, although it is faded. Unfortunately, the rear window is split, it never bothered the previous owner because he always left it rolled up (after all, there's nothing in the back that minds getting wet). A new hood isn't particularly expensive from exmoor trim/all wheel trim. A new hood has now been fitted A year or so ago the vehicle was fitted with a 300 tdi conversion (originally was a 2.5NAD with LT77 gearbox), complete with the R380 gearbox, making this Land Rover much more useable. The engine was taken from a relatively low mileage discovery (approx 130,000) and it runs very well. The gearbox shifts well and there are no nasty noises from any of the drive train. The Penman trailer is in excellent condition, it clearly saw very little use, there are little to no marks from use on the tub, it is complete with the wooden lattice base and the tonneau cover. It has hydraulic disc brakes. A very useful combination and the 2 go very well together, both being Ex MOD. I may consider splitting the Land Rover and trailer but ideally would like to offer the trailer to the buyer of the Land Rover.
