Notable as the first coil-sprung Land Rover, the ‘One Ten’ was introduced in 1983 (albeit the Solihull firm had been utilising a similar suspension set-up for its flagship Range Rover since 1970). Further differentiated from its Series III predecessor by a taller one-piece windscreen, modernised interior and more sophisticated Range Rover-derived permanent four-wheel drive system, the newcomer gained wind-up windows and a shorter wheelbase sibling, the ‘Ninety’, in 1984. With their superior load capacity, handling and ride comfort, the ‘One Ten’ (110) and ‘Ninety’ (90) proved strong sellers. Available with a choice of petrol or diesel engines, they were bought as much as lifestyle vehicles as workhorses. Deservedly popular, the turbo diesel variant was revamped in 1994 with the arrival of the 300 TDi engine. Codenamed ‘Romulus’, the 2.5 litre four-cylinder unit was notably smoother, quieter and tougher than the outgoing 200 TDi powerplant. Developing an unstressed 111bhp and 195lbft of torque, it endowed the Defender 90 with an 85mph top speed and 30mpg economy.

According to handwritten notes on file, ‘P676 DLS’ was treated a new rear crossmember, cambelt kit, rear step, brake system check, refurbished upholstery and fresh fluids before being acquired by its penultimate keeper in December 2014. Further benefiting from a front drop arm conversion, replacement windscreen and fresh door seals by the time it entered the current (fifth) ownership the following October, the Land Rover was entrusted to Chassis Clean of Cheshire for a Dinitrol wax treatment shortly thereafter. A new alternator, water pump and fan belt tensioner were installed during 2017 and attention paid to the fuel filler / neck and viscous unit in 2018. Repainted at some stage, the Defender 90 started readily upon inspection. Covering some 5,000 miles over the past eight years, ‘P676 DLS’ passed its most recent MOT test on 20th October 2022 with ‘no advisories’. Offered for sale with a spare set of wheels, V5C Registration Document, sundry invoices, numerous old MOT certificates and several issues of The Land Rover Club magazine.
