The original Land Rover Series began production in Solihull in 1948 and until its decades-long production run ended in 2016, more than two million Defenders were produced, becoming a British automotive icon. Since production ceased, the revered model has been in increased demand from both collectors and those willing to use this tough, utilitarian vehicle in the way it was designed for. It was only in 1989, following the introduction of the all-new Land Rover Discovery, that the Defender received its own name. This was not only a marketing exercise; the new Defender received a raft of upgrades, along with a new turbo diesel engine that brought useful increases in power, torque, and fuel economy when compared with the old, normally aspirated diesel it was based on. Often boasting large ‘Defender’ logos, the Land Rover went through a continuous process of development, gaining disc brakes and power-assisted steering as standard during the 1990s, together with a host of other improvements.
This Land Rover was originally supplied by Guy Salmon in Bristol on 31st March 2014. The specification of this Double Cab includes side steps and a Safari style roof rack, upgraded alloys, front bull-bar with spotlights and a multi-height tow-bar. We are advised this low mileage example drives as good as she looks, it has clearly been a well-cared example. Supplied with a V5 registration document, a current MoT test certificate and a print-out of the service history confirming the mileage. These robust, go anywhere vehicles have become increasingly desirable in recent years, this great utilitarian vehicle is sure to be one that catches the eye.
