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 a unique international presence throughout the production run, having been exported, manufactured, and produced under license by a number of other manufacturers in a variety of markets, including 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 ’90s 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

This 1995 Land Rover Defender 110 300TDI Originally started life as a standard 3 door Hardtop 110. Supplied new to Land Rover Espana SLU and registered Jean, Spain. Built at Land Rover Solihull factory on the 4th of November 1994 and originally supplier in Coniston Green with grey trim. This vehicle received an extensive frame of restoration earlier this year. The vehicle now presents an updated Santorini black exterior colour scheme over Black vinyl seating for 8 and features a KBX front grill set along with rock sliders and gloss black Boost alloy wheels on 235/85/R16 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tire. The vehicle was also converted to soft top specification during the restoration and features an All Wheel Trim tan mohair hood that sits on a satin black heavy-duty frame kit. There is a host of subtle convenience upgrades such as the NAS rear step and swing away wheel carrier, which makes the vehicle more convenient for loading rear occupants.

The restoration has been comprehensive with a complete strip-down of body panels, taking a replace where necessary approach. This has resulted in new replacement doors all around, an entirely new front wing assemble along with an extensive re-skimming of the rear tub to include both rear wings and rear number plate panels and cappings. Therefore the Defender benefits from almost all new exterior panels. All panels were then comprehensively prepared prior to painting in Santorini black. The chassis was fully stripped, sandblasted primed, and painted. On reassembly the entire chassis was poly bushed, axles rebuilt and breaks comprehensively overhauled. The engine and gearbox have also received a check over and service.

In summary, this vehicle looks and acts the part and would make a terrific beach truck for summer days.

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.
