Purchased this 90 to get back into a defender.. been driving it every day, need more seats for the fam. Willing to trade for a solid 110.

Closer specification would be a 95 300TDI
Everything replaced in the last several years:
-Was purchased and imported in 2010
-Truck re-built in 2012 with a 300TDI engine and new galvanized Richard chassis with fresh paint.
-All new Wiring (ALL) harnesses from Autosparks UK

Very reliable and well driving defender, daily driver. Has all the right stuff upgraded and make this a dependable Land Rover. Truck has always had all maintenance addressed and tracks very well and low and highway speeds, with the replacement clutch, throw-out bearing, Turner performance head and new exhaust, wiring, etc, it shouldn’t require anything but routine maintenance for a while.
