Land Rover Defender 3.5 V8 converted to automatic transmission
The Land Rover Defender is a further development of the original Land Rover. This car was developed during the Second World War and is intended not only as a passenger and delivery vehicle, but also as an agricultural vehicle.
After Series I, II and III, the fourth series was only designated 90 or 110. In 1989, after the Land Rover Discovery was launched, the model was named Defender.
The Land Rover Defender has a ladder chassis and weighs about 1,800 kilos. The body is made of aluminum. The Land Rover Defender can be built in a modular way and therefore comes in many forms. The short transmissions of the gearbox, permanent four-wheel drive with limited slip differential and a fording depth of fifty centimeters make it extremely suitable for off-road use, but a lot less suitable for the motorway. So this is really a car that comes into its own in the outdoor and off-road terrain, of course it can be driven on the highway. But don’t assume that you will be the first to leave the traffic light or that you can sprint against fast cars. This car is not built for that.
This car has been completely restored, you can see that in everything. The car is completely rust-free, the entire car has also been treated well so that it will no longer rust, there is also good protection everywhere, beautiful racks and good lamps. This car is therefore ideal for the countryside. Or if you just think it’s a cool car? like most, this is definitely a good buy. This car is also exempt from road tax in the Netherlands and you can drive it with 9 people. This car also has 2 extra benches at the back, so you certainly have no shortage of space. The tires also have a very good profile and can easily go on unpaved roads. This car is a true all-rounder and a pleasure to drive. Also because he has that delicious 3.

Service history about the restoration of the car. Together with the invoices that are present. The car has been converted into an automatic gearbox purely because the gentleman liked it better to drive. The car mainly served as a car for the holiday home on Terschelling, where the car was in the garage. So it was driven around with it. Now the car has been brought to the mainland to sell, there are also 2 keys available. And the car is equipped with nice accessories such as the rack that sits on top of the car with the extra lighting. This makes the car a bit tougher to see.
The current owner of the car has owned it for a number of years now from 2014 to be precise. From that moment on, a lot has happened to the car. Mister has always thought it was a cool and special car. And the Defender certainly is! all for its characteristic features and cool looks. This all-rounder has spent most of his time here in the Netherlands in Terschelling at the holiday home of the current owner. The car has been there a lot and has been used there for the rides on Terschelling in recent years. This car has really been tackled from top to bottom from top to bottom. For example, pipes have been replaced, the starter motor and many other things have been damaged. These invoices are therefore present with the car and you will receive it as the new owner.
