Land Rover Defender 90 1992. Rare Soft Top GS Cargo . 12V Diesel #197
This one owner vehicle was manufactured and registered for the Army in 1992, decommissioned in 2012 since when it has had one owner and was used on a private estate for its extensive pheasant shoots.
Rare 12 V electrical system. Extremely rare power steering option. Original military soft-top, completely authentic bodywork, heavy duty hood stick set. Cargo frame within soft-top. Genuine NATO spec tyres on steel rims which are in excellent condition.
This vehicle has completed a genuine 47,200 miles in total (the mileage taken on the MOT history does not take into account the fact that the odometer reading is in kilometres, not miles).
The chassis is excellent throughout, with the exception of the rear cross member which would benefit from being replaced, as can be seen from the photos. (A new cross member costs approximately £160, and can be fitted for approximately £450), our workshops are at your disposition should you wish to have this repair done.
Completely original instrumentation, including convoy lights and assorted military specification switches, the vehicle benefits from all its original chassis and manufacturing plates.
A brief search on the military history archives of: 57 KK 96 should reveal a life of robust and courageous adventure. An easily accessible project for a fan of militaria or four-wheel-drive.
A collector’s item and a sure-fire investment, hours of fun, great for ram raiding, poaching, or simply escaping your nagging future ex-partner.
