    A 96 landy with no issues, it must have spent fifteen years and nine months in a garage.

    I love my Landrovers but to be honest you will not get much of a defender for 1k. Unless this is a very good mate who is selling it to you at a good price I would be suspicious. Although Hiluxs are nearly as good as Defenders (did I really say that) worn seats and a bit smoke when pushed hard almost certainly equals a hard life. Seats can be easily replaced but failing an MOT on smoke emmissions costs money. If the engine is badly worn so will be a lot of other parts.

    watch for rot in the boot floor cills inner wings,

    and any metal between the bumpers.

    Is that a 200 tdi one of the better engines Landrover produced at that age look for rot issues rear floor and sill areas if its a five door check the rear arches where the doors close a little corrosion there is often a sign of more serious rot out of sight also watch for paint bubbling or pealing at the rear quarters again this can be a sign of rot caused by a reaction where the aluminium panel is in contact with steel.

    Its not impossible to replace the rotten areas sills rear floor etc but its quite a big job on a Disco and unless you can do it yourself way beyond what the vehicle is worth.
