The Land Rover Defender is an off-road vehicle produced under this name by the British manufacturer, Land Rover, since 1991. However, the vehicle is the direct heir of the first Land Rover that made its debut in 1948. The first prototype was built by the British automaker in 1947 and it was designed for the army. This iconic car was improved over the years and it has been known for generations as a national treasure.
Land Rover Series 2 109 Double Cab - 200TDi & 5 Speed Gearbox - Selectable 4WD
Sellers Comments - I am selling my much loved Land Rover Series 2.
The reason its being sold is purely I am looking to downsize the amount of vehicles I have before moving.
Let me describe the vehicle, it is an ex military ambulance that met an unfortunate demise in the rear body department, now fitted with a stage 1 back body with a double cab roof which was professionally tig welded together to fit. The rear part of the cab is off a defender (off an ex James Bond Film Defender) and the front is standard Series. Rear doors are the rare split door version (but unfortunately someone before me fitted speakers in the door cards. Has Defender seats all round.
Chassis is the heavy duty combat chassis with parabolic springs fitted all round. Engine is a 200Tdi with recent cambelt with a full Steve Parker exhaust system fitted. Gearbox & transfer box is a Defender unit with selectable 4WD. Painted in RAF Blue Grey.
Chassis is good and benefits from a replacement crossmember, Chassis is not bent or cracked but has had some repairs in the past. Overall a good useable chassis.
Bulkhead is in good condition,needing no work or repairs as this was all done previously.
This vehicle has plenty of modern features such as hazards, speakers (but no stereo) soundproofing, rear fog light,reverse light etc but still retaining the character and charm of a series vehicle. This has been into Europe several times and has never let me down. I would jump in this and go with this Land Rover.

Some people wanted to check the vehicle history online but were unable to do so. I have looked into this and the reason is that the vehicle is registered as an Rover not Land Rover.
It is registered as a Rover Ambulance with its military designation.
So if you want to check MOT or Tax etc please enter WFO 805 and make as Rover then all the information will come up.
This is a used vehicle so there are signs of wear and tear on the vehicle.
