This left-hand drive 1997 Land Rover Defender 130 300TDi is said to have been restored under previous ownership, including a repaint in white, new vinyl seats, a suspension leveling kit, 35” BFGoodrich KM2 tires, a Britpart steering stabilizer, Terrafirma heavy-duty steering arms, LED lighting, a brush guard with a winch, and a snorkel. Benefitting from a new rear differential, brakes, and transmission synchros installed in August of 2022, this Defender 130 is now being offered at auction by its seller out of Florida showing just over 22k miles on the odometer.
The exterior is finished in white with a gloss black roof and a 65” cargo bed. Equipment includes a gloss black front brush guard with an LED light bar and integrated winch, gloss black fender flares, a chequer-plated rear tubular rear bumper, upgraded LED headlights, a snorkel, a trailer hitch, and LED tail lights. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The 15” gloss black steel wheels are mounted with BFGoodrich KM2 mud terrain tires from 2013.
The interior features two front seats and a split-folding rear bench reupholstered in grey vinyl. Amenities include rubberized flooring, a center storage compartment, a two-spoke steering wheel, an aftermarket Racetronix coolant temperature gauge, a 12v power outlet, and a grey fabric headliner.
This Defender 130 is powered by a 300TDi 2.5L turbodiesel inline four-cylinder engine which was factory rated at 111 HP and 195 lb.-ft of torque. All four wheels are driven by an R380 5-speed manual transmission and dual-range transfer case. The suspension has been fitted with an aftermarket leveling kit, a Britpart steering stabilizer, and Terrafirma heavy-duty steering arms. The seller also reports an upgraded intercooler was installed during the restoration. Recent work includes the installation of a new rear differential, new front and rear brakes, new transmission synchros, and oil service.
This sale will include a clean title and some service documentation.
