1994 Land Rover Defender 300tdi, 3-Door

This is a great project car for someone who can replace/repair/rebuild a few key parts. It is the perfect base for a weekend off-roader or overlanding vehicle. I have owned this car for over 18 months and enjoyed it to the fullest, but now I need the space on my drive.

We took this Land Rover to Africa for 7 months and it performed superbly. Unfortunately, during the last stages of our trip one issue that we could not sort out had a cascading effect. I am happy to share our experience with potential buyers. You are welcome to view the car. Call/Text: Imran, the details below

Great Points:

Engine & Drivetrain:

- Engine taken from a Discovery 300tdi (doctor owned car with full service history), 15,000 miles ago.

This engine was fully refurbished with the best parts on the market (from Turner Engineering, Bearmach etc.). Photos available. Engine was around 150,000 Miles when removed and Chassis at the time was 192,000 Miles. It starts on the first turn, always! I have serviced the engine every 3,000 miles, its easy I just like to take care of my engine like that.

- All Silicone hoses
- Allisport double core intercooler
- ARB Lockers on rear diff and pegged housing
- Braided brake lines
- Terrafirma dislocation cones and retainers


Body & Chassis:

- Galvanized Chassis
- Goodwinch, Electric Winch with nylon rope (another quality product)
- Safety Devices, Roll Cage (acknowledged as a producer of the best roll cages)
- Terrafirma, Underbody Protection: Steering, Front diff, gearbox/transfer box and fuel tank guards
- Adrenaline 4x4, Front radius and rear trailing arms
- Fully Polybushed
- Widened arches
- Wheel Spacers
- Tyres replaced about 5,000 miles ago. General Grabbed GT, 265/75/16
- Rock Sliders
- Snorkel air intake
- Mantec Rear wheel carrier, with Maxxiss tire spare wheel and HiLift Jack


Interior & Other Extras:

- Exmoor Trim Moulded Matting
- Roof internal 2” foam sound & thermal insulation
- Sides: 100mm Loft insulation in panel space
- 2 x inward facing seats (rear) – No seat belts
- Rear door foldaway table, with gas hose installed
- Leisure Battery x 2 storage area (200+ AH output) with a parallel isolator charge relay system to main vehicle battery (installed Dec 2017):
- 90AH Powerline + 120AH Superbatt Silver 9000 = 210AH
- 1000W 12V DC to 230V invertor (UK 3 pin plug) – running off Aux Batteries
- ARB Air compressor
- CB Radio
- 3 x USB charging points (front, middle and back) with voltage meter
- 40+ LED internal lights. The interior lights up really bright! There are lights in many places, such as map lights, rear lights etc.
- Army trunk with a whole load of spare and service parts. I kept some spares for our journey and will give all of them with the car.


Bad Points:

- 5th Gear makes a noise so I avoid using it
- Front axle case is broken and so is the front diff
- Brake calipers could do with new seals/refurb
- Steering box has a lot of play. I do have a spare but it is worth a refurb
- Rear Shock is broken. During our journey, we only found cheap replacements when our shocks broke, so ideally all four corners of the car could do with new uprated shocks and springs. The bracket broke also previously, but it has been repaired well.
- Bonnet release cable broken
- Some lights broken/not working, like rear brake light, rear working LED lights, front indicators temperamental.
- CD player not working
- Some scuffs on the arches and small rust spots around the car.
- MOT Expired on Sep 5th 2020. It will not pass next MOT as one rear shock is broken
- There is a note on the V5 stating "This vehicle was salvaged because the estimated cost of commercial repair was more than the value of the vehicle".


If someone sees the car in person then I can go over every detail, good and bad. I promise not the leave anything out, I would hate it if someone mis sold a car to me, so I will not do it to others.
Me and my wife adored this Land Rover and used it daily in Africa. It has always stared and had never left us stranded. I just drove it from Southampton a few weeks ago and besides the bouncy ride (no rear shock), and weird steering (play in the box), it was spot on.

It may sound like a lot of jobs to do on the car, but fixing these 300tdi Defenders is not that complicated. If you could rebuild the whole drivetrain (gearbox, transfer box, front axle and both diffs), replace the brakes, suspension and steering box and a few other snags, you would have a great Defender.
