Many classic car buyers cherish originality but when it comes to the seemingly everlasting Land Rover Defender and many of the earlier Series models adaptability and longevity take priority.

With that in mind, Land Rover enthusiasts will not question the work done to this one-owner, full service history (down to every last litre or fuel and oil put into the vehicle), and fastidiously-maintained Defender 110 hardtop that is now ready to perhaps take on the wider world after spending its first 27 years in Dorset.

Underpinning the Defender is a galvanised chassis fitted in 2016 and repairs have also been made to the usual areas – the rebuilt bulkhead and front door bottoms – reassuring prospective owners that this is a vehicle that has been cherished.

The military took to the Defender in the heavily revised Wolf specification and this vehicle boasts Wolf rims with BFG All Terrain tyres, although the original rims are supplied with the vehicle. Wolf-style lockers have been inserted in each side panel behind the cab doors, perfect for carrying jerry cans for those with a sense of adventure.

Indeed with its detachable Superwinch S9000, full length and checker-plate lined Brownchurch roof rack, checker-plate protected bonnet and front wings, insulated interior side panels, front and rear light guards, bonnet-mounted spare wheel plus a further swing-away rear wheel carrier to augment the rear door carrier that supplied with the vehicle, steering and sump guards, wading muff, and locking front and rear diffs, this Land Rover appears equipped to go just about anywhere. All-round disc brakes will bring reassurance, as will the reconditioned five speed gearbox taking power through the permanent 4x4 system from the 200 TDi diesel engine which breathes out through a stainless steel exhaust system.

Defender owners are keen to hang onto their vehicles – lack of use is the only reason this Defender is offered for sale – so the Foxguard alarm and pedal security box will be appreciated.

This is one of those rare Land Rover Defenders that wants for nothing and is ready to confidently unleash your sense of adventure. And when camping out under the stars, there’s plenty of reading material supplied. The full main dealer service history is backed up by all previous MoTs and tax discs together with all invoices for work done and accessories bought. A current V5c certificate is also with the vehicle.
