Previous owner had repaired some rust in the footwells. Has been bondoed a little bit and repainted and resealed. No new rust, and not noticeable with the floor mats down.
Single rust spot on the rear tub capping about the size of a quarter.
Some surface rust on the windscreen bar and body mounts (easily fixable – can be done for a modest fee before sale)
Could use a new center cubby box –recommend a Tuffy…
Small rip in passenger seat base – could be recovered with an Exmoor retrim kit (cheap) or replace entirely (little bit more)
Small tear in rear rubberized flooring
Some surface rust on the rear tire carrier. Could use a repaint.
About 3 small honest dings in body work – either parking lot dings, or in the case of one in the front wing, a tree. None larger than a dime.

Serious offers only, please.
If you are in the US, I am a private Canadian individual and do no know how to export this to you - You'll have to come and collect it and deal with the paperwork. I will assist as much as I can to facilitate, but ultimate responsibility is up to you to get it across the border. Funds need to be cleared through direct bank transfer. Vehicle will be released only after funds have cleared.
I forgot something fairly significant..
I have recently replaced the entire exhaust system at a cost of CAD$1600. It is a custom dual SS with dual ceramic magnaflow cats and dual Flowmaster Super 44 offroading mufflers.
This Defender sounds like a hotrod!
I am a member of a local 4x4 club that is 99% jeep guys and this truck scares the cr*p out of them when I show up to the meets. My reply is always the same "That's what a v-8 sounds like, boys."
I also love pulling them out when they get stuck.
