The Land Rover Defender was launched in 1948 and, incredibly, production only finished in January 2016 after a continuous run of 67 years. Outwardly, there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. A full-length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. Internally, coil springs offered a more comfortable ride and a permanent four-wheel drive system derived from the Range Rover featuring a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential. A modernised interior and a new series of progressively more powerful and modern engine characterised things under the skin. The County 4x4s were sold as multi-purpose family vehicles featuring improved interior trim and more comfortable seats. The Tdi engine finally allowed the Defender to cruise comfortably at high speeds, as well as tow heavy loads speedily on hills while still being economical. In 1998, the Defender was fitted with an all-new 2.5-litre, five-cylinder in-line turbo/diesel engine, badged the Td5.

Originally registered on 28th April 2000 this Land Rover has only covered 50,798 miles from new. This iconic car benefits from alloy wheels, multi height towbar, side steps, mudflaps and chequer plate wing protection. The seats are arranged with two forward facing and four inward facing in the rear. The rear seats fold away to allow for increased load space, this seat configuration is becoming rarer to find and offers fantastic practicality. The Galway Green paintwork is complemented by the grey interior, additional spot-lights have been fitted as well as a nudge-bar and light protector grilles. This Defender has been in the same family from new, showing one change of owner on the V5. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 6th September 2024, this Land Rover is as practical as it is fun. Consigned by Stewart Banks.
