1998 TO 2004
THE DISCOVERY 2 retained the stepped-roof looks and basic shape of its predecessor, but got an improved chassis, bodyshell and suspension, along with new engines and axles. It was the best-handling Land Rover in its day and there are plenty to choose from. V8 petrols are expensive to run, Td5 diesels economical. The bodies last well, but the chassis is prone to spectacular levels of rust – putting many examples beyond economic repair. BUYER'S TIP: Carefully check that chassis for corrosion. SPECIFICATIONS
