200TDI/300TDI/V8 – 1990 TO 1998

LAND ROVERS don’t have to be ex­pen­sive. If you’re look­ing for a deal, the Disco 1 is very af­ford­able. It is ca­pa­ble off-road and re­fined too, but rust is a mas­sive prob­lem. Of course if you’re handy with a welder, there’s noth­ing that can’t be sorted. Check out the floor, sills and in­ner wings. If reg­u­larly ser­viced, 200Tdis and 300Tdi en­gines are pretty bul­let­proof. Prices of good ones start­ing to rise now as col­lec­tors snap up early ex­am­ples. BUYER’S TIP: Rust is the enemy. In­spect thor­oughly. SPECIFICATIONS
