Ex Army Land Rover Defender 90 300tdi Keswick Green MOD Military

Sellers Comments -

This Land Rover Defender has been progressively up-graded over the past few years.

It was originally a military vehicle (1987) so really was a Defender of the realm! Military registration number 52-KG-30 served with 14 Signals, 237 Squadron who were an electronic counter measures unit supporting 20th Armoured Brigade. I’ve recently added a 20th Armoured decal as a nod to it’s history.

The odometer currently reads 144905 miles but most parts have been changed including the engine so this is pretty irrelevant.

It was MOT’d on 11/8/2021 (144,820 miles) Passed with no advice.

The normally aspirated 2.5 diesel engine was replaced with a, pretty much bomb proof, 300tdi before my ownership.
