We manufacture all model year of Discovery 2’s’.
Richards Chassis had been asked on numerous occasions to build a Discovery 2 chassis, and for a long time we resisted. It would seam that the Discovery 1 chassis does not rot but the body work does, Whereas the Discovery 2 had a relatively good body but the chassis seem to rot for fun around the rear fuel tank and rear axle mounts. We eventually bowed to the pressure and produced the only replacement Discovery 2 chassis available. There is only 1 part used in common with our standard Defender and Series production, a spring seat, so there was hundreds of hours of drawing and prototyping before we had anything available to sell. There seems to be some love out there for the Discovery 2. They were made with the V8 petrol and TD5 diesel engines and were available in both manual and automatic transmissions. There was a major Facelift in 2003 at chassis number 3A and this did include a chassis change which customers need to be aware of when ordering.
When we first approached them back in 2005 they were keen to listen and explore all options. This lead to three very individual Defender based race cars that dominated podiums across Europe in Trophy raid and winch challenge events from 2006 to 2015. These cars also attended events in the USA and Africa where again they showed their pedigree taking podium positions.
We are proud to work with Richards and still use their superb chassis’ to this day on tow cars, show cars and on some of our race cars. They are simply the best Landrover chassis money can buy.
