Emily was one of the very first defenders off of the production line. She has series three (military type) doors and sliding side windows.

She has 7months MOT and is not far off being exempt!

She underwent an engine change in 2000 to a 200tdi, and had a replacement chassis 8months ago. During the chassis replacement the following was carried out:

Brake master cylinder
Brake lines front and back
Suspension turrets
Suspension springs
Suspension shocks
Outriggers and fixings
Foot wells
Upper bulkhead repair patches
Electric fan with new thermostat
Front aluminium bumper

Chassis (fully anti-corrosion painted)
Engine was overhauled - new seals, new ancillary belts, air filter, fuel filter etc..)
Paintwork - painted green with 2-pax (spare paint supplied for patching
Original light surrounds and wire protective mesh.

Also, last month I sent her to a local Landrover specialist who carried out the following work:

New front Prop UJ
Prop Nuts
Front Diff Oil Seal
Transfer Box Oil Seal
Back Axle Oil - EP90
Front Axle Oil - EP90
Transfer Box Oil - EP90
Main Gearbox Oil - ATF
Speedo Cable
N/S Drag Linkage - OEM
Pair Track Rod Bushes
Pair Track Rod Bolts+
Drum Brake Shoes
O/S/R Wheel Cylinder
N/S/R Wheel Cylinder
Break Fluid Replaced
O/S/R & N/S/R Hub Cap
Body Stays (wings)
O/S/R Brake Pipe - Copper
Door Lock Barrel Set

I also recently replaced the rear quarter window seals in the cab (as they were perished), fitted a new battery, and had a new alternator fitted by the Landrover specialists (turns out is wasnt the battery).

She is not a perfect truck - but is perfectly presentable and in great condition for being 37 years old. Ive owned her for 6 years and my best friend for 4 years before that. She is mechanically sound and very reliable. I have never had any issues and have always maintained her fully, and kept her on the road. I normally driver her to work on Fridays (60 mile round trip) and she gets the monthly tip run trip! Never any issues other than the recent alternator problem which has been replaced.

She is being sold with her battered canvas hood and hoops, and a roll bar that I have unbolted, to retain her original looks.

Running on steel modular wheels with half worn OffRoad BFGoodrich tyres (in the pics)...

There are a few very minor things on the snag list:
- Fuel sensor has been replaced but is intermittently working (I think its a simple cabling issue)
- Fuel tank has a slow weep on the seem of the tank (only 2 drips per day when more than ¾ full)
- Side light instrument panel light not working, possibly needs a new bulb

Thanks for reading on...

She will be sold as seen without warranty or guarantee, and will not shipped abroad.

The price reflects a recent appraisal by my insurance company after her restoration for which a certificate can be supplied at the point of sale, and a small amount to cover recent expenditure.

I have spared no penny keeping Emily in tip-top condition, she is a real beauty.

I am only selling due to having to cover a lot of miles for work, not having a real use for a truck this capable, and a recent Discovery purchase. She will need to go to a loving home!

***Just dropped the price by over £1000 - first to see will buy - very rare to see an old classic with so much recent mechanical and chassis work!
