History of the Land Rover

The Land Rover Series range was launched in 1948 and the model, now known as the Defender, was launched in 1983 and the continuous run finished in January 2016, after 67 years. Land Rovers were inspired by the US-built Willys Jeep immediately after the war and by 1992 they claimed that 70% of all the vehicles they had ever built were still in use. The Defender and Series ranges have had unique international presence throughout the production run, having been exported, manufactured and produced under licence by a number of other manufacturers in a variety of markets, to include Australia, Southern and North Africa, Turkey, Brazil, Pakistan and Malaysia, to name just a few.  In 1993 Land Rover decided to take the plunge into the US market after their successful launch of the Range Rover brand in 1987 in order to offer an upmarket alternative to the Jeep Wrangler targeted at adventurous buyers. Land Rover finally had to retract their offering from the North American and Canadian markets in 1997 due to economic viability. The Defenders offered in the US during the 90’s had to be significantly modified in comparison to Land Rover’s other export markets. Subsequent federal safety regulation amendments finally withdrew the Defender from the US market entirely in 1997, with Land Rover throwing their attention towards upmarket Discovery and Range Rover models that were being built from the ground up.

The Car

One for the Land Rover V8 and leather-clad lover. An original Swiss market-delivered Land Rover 110 V8 station wagon. First registered in Switzerland on 06/04/1987, it was then later exported to France in 1999, where it was registered thereby its second keeper. The current keeper purchased the vehicle in May 2020. Reportedly the vehicle was still in its factory specification finished in Alpine White, with its factory original interior still in place. Mechanically, the vehicle has been meticulously cared for during its time in France and has a substantial history file to a company with many invoices from ‘marque specialists such as Espace Land, in Garons, France. The history file shows work carried over the years to include: replacement clutch fork, camshaft sprocket, distribution chain, distribution casing gasket, water pump, and a replacement steering box. Additionally, the engine had a substantial overhaul in 2018 to include a variety of engine gasket rings and rebuilt SU carbs. The latest cosmetic work was carried out by the current keeper and included a total exterior repaint in Corris Grey. Alongside these substantial accessories were added to accompany to include LED exterior lights, sawtooth wheels, side-exit exhaust, sidesteps, gloss black wheel arches, swing away wheel carrier, Heritage style front light grills and centre grill along with a Masai panoramic glass window system, which costs in excess of $6,500 US dollars before fitting. The interior has been fully reupholstered in Italian Napa leather, we are informed it’s the same type as used in Porsche Cayenne’s. The upholstery work is comprehensive and includes the dash, door panels sun visors, centre console, and rear door card, alongside the seating. The work was all performed in Madrid by a hand craftsman. The interior also features a custom wooden bound free spoke metal steering wheel chrome instrument dial surrounds aluminum door handles and an Apple CarPlay centre double dim stack, fitted with a reverse camera. 

All in all, this is an exceptional value for money, factory V8 110 that’s been heavily customized.

It should be noted the vehicle was previously fitted with LPG which is visible in the photo gallery however the system has now been removed in preparation for sale.

AN UPDATE FROM THE TEAM
 

We are here and open for business

These are truly extraordinary times. Although we’re not as raring to go as usual, we still remain open, with shipping line's continuing to run, although at a reduced frequency. 

  Keeping our distance 

 Fortunately we are a small team and geographically spread. The team are largely working from home with the exception of our independent mechanics who are able to continue to work safely. 

 What does this mean for YOU

 We continue to operate and send out vehicles globally on a monthly basis. Our ability to prepare a vehicle to a client's specification is somewhat stifled. Although our mechanics are doing their very best, to meet smaller requests.

  Fast Moving Cars 

 AKA lockdown project. 

We’ve been working hard over recent months to gather a collection of "FAST MOVING CARS". These are rolling projects, although not perfect, they are ideal for first time importers giving a taste of what English classics have to offer.  

  Fighting fit in no time

 We are confident that we will come through this stronger and we wish safety and good health to everyone and their families. 

We are only a call, email or text away so please don’t hesitate.
