JOHN BROOKS OF CULT 4x4
“There are still loads of 300Tdi Defenders about. If you are in the market for one then you have to look at the basics such as rust to the bulkhead and chassis. Don’t worry about the other bits such as the doors or the interior as they can all be replaced.
“Rather make sure that it is mechanically sound rather than just a sound body. The sign of a good 300Tdi is one puff of black smoke on a start up and then clear thereafter.”
