The Land Rover Defender was launched in 1948 and, incredibly, production only finished in January 2016 after a continuous run of 67 years. Outwardly, there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. A full-length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. Internally, coil springs offered a more comfortable ride and a permanent four-wheel drive system derived from the Range Rover featuring a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential. A modernised interior and a new series of progressively more powerful and modern engine characterised things under the skin.
This Defender 90 XS was originally registered on 7th October 2015 and has remained in the hands of the purchaser ever since. The XS model was a good specification vehicle with standard equipment including power steering, heated seats, anti-lock brakes and air conditioning. However, the vendor has upgraded a significant number of items on this Land Rover including; black chequer plating, side steps, multi-height towbar, Sawtooth alloy wheels, security hinges on all doors, stainless steel hinges on all three doors and bonnet, additional lights to the rear, removable steering wheel with a lockable boss, tool drawer in the rear footwell and upgraded front grille and headlight surround. Clearly this has been a very well cared for Land Rover as the specification and condition suggests. The mileage of 38,336 is confirmed by a full and comprehensive service history. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until 30th August 2024. Land Rover Defenders are becoming increasingly popular, this one owner, low mileage example is sure to attract attention, viewing in person to fully appreciate the condition and specification of this 90 XS diesel is highly recommended.
