Original unmolested example of the Defender 90 300tdi County station wagon. I acquired the vehicle last year with a view to restoring as a keeper. Alas the plan has changed and i'm loathed to put the 90 up for sale.

It was subject to a comprehensive rebuild under the care of Glencoyne engineering whom after eight months (and £12000!) have done a remarkable job.

The focus of the rebuild was to retain originality and rebuild for practicality. The chassis was replaced with a Marsland galvanised chassis, which has been stamped with the VIN prior to galvanising. This allows the chassis to be considered a replacement part and thus avoids complication with insurance / registration etc.

A Roamerdrive was sought from Canada together with the extended sump and temperature gauge . Richard from Glencoyne has modified the transmission tunnel slightly to allow for this modification. This allows the defender to be enjoyable at modern speeds on dual carriage ways.

the vehicle benefits from a aluminium low profile roof rack and a Masai ladder with integrated light guard. the rear mounted rack was obtained from extreme 4x4 and allows for a 'highlift' jack to be carried externally.

New BF Goodrich Mud Terrains were mounted on to 'wolf rims' to finish the build. the build was completed in September 2023 and ive been using it lightly since. Its been absolutely faultless but the prospect of a change in my commute and house renovation forces sale. Its a good honest example that shows its years externally but is mechanically superb.
