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 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

The perfect winter toy. This 1996 Land Rover Defender 90 300 TDI was first delivered to the Italian market. The previous owner has kitted it out with a host of accessories.  Possibly best described as a Spectre Stormtrooper collaboration. The accessories include: Wireless remotes wrench, Spectre style Beadlock rims, Spectre wheel arches, 2 inches Terra firma lift kit, diamond stitch bucket seats, updated headlights, rear LED fog and reverse lights. Carpeted throughout, rubberized puma bulbar. Spectre rope, roof rack with 4 LED spotlights, and a rear ladder, heavy-duty swing away wheel carrier, rear benches. Stereo with rear speaker. Battery isolator, Alcantara headliner.  There's no doubt that this truck offers a surefire way for the next owner to have a ton of fun. 

The truck has recently benefited from a frame-off chassis restoration which has included a full strip-down, sandblasted, primed, and painted. On reassembly, the entire chassis was poly bushed, axles and brakes overhauled. The engine and gearbox have also received a check over and service.
