Sheffield UK ?????? Defender 110

Hello,
My wife and I are looking to purchase a 1988 Defender 110 that is located in Sheffield UK. Would like to find someone who could go and check it out to make sure it is what it is.

Thank you,

I have friends from there, a husband and wife, but I don't think they know much about land rovers.

Why buy AA Vehicle Inspections

Get a vehicle safety check and road test before you buy

up to 206 checks per carsame-day feedback, written report within one dayfixed rated, no hidden costsimpartial advice to help you negotiate a priceavailable for cars, vans and motorhomes
From as little as 128 for AA Members (142 for non-members), the cost of an inspection depends on the engine size and the type of inspection.

Just call 0800 056 8040.

For 227.68 US Dollars it sounds like a bargain to me.

IMO, your first point of contact should be Doug C., here on the board as Uncle Douglas.

An aa inspection is not a bad idea but I'd get a land rover specialist to look it over as well.

Thanks Paul. Yes I do have an inspector who has inspected many defenders for me. He will spend 3 hrs going over everything about the truck for you, including driving it 10 miles to check synchro's and drive train lash. Sorry, haven't been on expedition portal in a couple of days.
email me @ doug@dividingcreekimports.com
