The Land Rover Defender was developed in the 1980s from the original Land Rover series that was launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show in April 1948. This four-wheel drive vehicle was the British equivalent of the American Willys Jeep. Built using a steel ladder chassis and aluminium bodywork the Defender gained a worldwide reputation for ruggedness and versatility. The L316 Defender 90 model was manufactured between 2002 until 2007. The Td5 was fitted with a turbocharged, inline five-cylinder, diesel engine producing 120bhp at 4,200 rpm with the power transmitted to the road by a ‘all-wheel drive’ system with a five-speed gearbox. The chassis details responsible for road holding and handling include a rigid axle, coil springs, anti-roll bar front suspension and De Dion axle. Coil springs, anti-roll bar rear suspension. The Td5 braking system includes vented discs at the front and solid brake discs to the rear.
This excellent, two owners from new example, is one of the last Land Rover Defender 90 Td5 supplied new in 2006. Purchased by the current owner in 2010 it has been fully maintained and serviced, very year, by a Land Rover main dealer until 2020 when it had a major service by a Land Rover specialists less than 2500 miles ago. In 2018 the tyres were replaced and still appear like new. When he purchased the Td5 a slight crack was discovered in the engine block, a new unstamped, engine was supplied and fitted by Land Rover under warranty, since the new engine was fitted it has done 26,000 miles. This 90 Td5 hardtop is finished in green with a white roof and has recently been retrimmed in county tweed. It is fitted with a Thatcham Alarm system and is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in August 2023, the complete handbook pack which contains the service book and continuation service book and a large file with old MoT’s, invoices and other documents. This Land Rover is in new, showroom condition and it would be difficult to find one so well maintained and serviced.
