Having been fully refinished in attractive Keswick Green, this low mileage factory soft-top presents in exceptional condition throughout. The paintwork appears incredibly fresh with a deep shine and no unsightly blemishes to report. During the car’s restoration the half doors and khaki canvas hood were renewed, and the exterior trims were re-galvanised for a consistent finish. A Keswick Green chequer plate panel was riveted to the centre of the bonnet and new lights were fitted all round, including the headlights which are now more powerful LED units. Chequer plate side steps have also recently been fitted (not pictured) but these could easily be removed should the new keeper so desire.



Inside, the three seats have been recovered in tan and black leatherette with cream piping, and the original steering wheel has been changed for a rather nice wood-rimmed item. The upholstery is immaculately presented with only the lightest hint of use on the driver’s side, and in the footwells the floors are protected by a set of heavy duty Defender overmats. Glancing across the dash all the switchgear remains in fine fettle and the centre panel has been painted to match the exterior. Another nice touch is the newly fitted Land Rover Classic infotainment system equipped with USB, Bluetooth, and satellite navigation.


Lifting the bonnet you’ll find the original hardy 2.5-litre Td5 engine, barely run-in with only 46k miles from new. The engine bay appears in fine condition and the car has clearly been well maintained throughout its life. The last service was carried out by our trusted classic car specialists in February 2023 at 44,906 miles.


The Defender sits 16-inch steel wheels; finished in complementing Keswick Green they all present in perfect unmarked condition. All five are shod in matching rugged Goodyear tyres with plenty of tread remaining. The vehicle further benefits from recently renewed suspension components, brake discs, calipers, and hoses.
