Description for Land Rover Defender 1992

This is a 1992 2.5 NA Diesel Nardo grey soft top


Like many Land Rovers the chassis was starting to show its age so we have carried out a frame off restoration on this Defender.

Even thoughit would have been far easier and cheaper to replace the chassis with a galvanised chassis we decided not to as it is a matching chassis/Vin number/ original enginevehicle.

It is an ex MOD Defender 90 so is fitted with the 2.5 naturally aspirated engine. Please note these are not as powerful as TDI or V8 engines and this particular engine does smoke. We can change the engine at additional cost but if it is being exported to USA it is best to have the original engine for customs...

It has had upgraded Bilstein suspension set up to create a far superior driving experience.

It has had a full inside and out professional colour change to Nardo grey
