Hi All,

thanks for accepting my reg.

i am looking to purchase this range, being a previous land rover defender owner, i do not know what to look in this model.
engine runs smooth that's fine and the chassis is looking clean,
is there anything that these cars had that should be noticeable or attentive to.

cheers all

jake

As far as body work goes, check the sills under the seats/door pillars for rust, there are are available to change them but it's not my fav job... also check the rear and front wheel arches, they tend to rust too... Sorry can't help much with the engine as i know very little about them... the tdi 300 was available in the defender and is the same engine as far as i know.

There is a good book called "Range Rover - The First Generation" by James Taylor & Nick Dimbleby. It has a good buyers guide and points out all the rust traps and things to look for with engines and transmissions.

The book seems quite exp $99USD on some sites but I remember getting it for about $30NZD here in New Zealand.
