Land Rover Defender 110 2.5 Diesel Light Utility Truck 1986 “The Gardener” #240
Manufactured to order for the MoD by Land Rover special vehicles in 1985, this completely original softop 110 Light utility Truck has retained all its original features, including front heavy duty bumper with towing pintle, flag sockets, bonnet-mounted spare, radio mast support, screw off indicator lenses, quick release catches, size jerry can holders, anti-burst doors, locking quick release fuel cap, heavy duty seatbelt bar, galvanised hood sticks, extremely unusual double inward facing rear seats designed to carry 10 infantrymen, fold down tailgate, Sankey tow hitch, removable rear reflectors its NATO hitch, convoy rear bumpers and a host of other military specification details.
The dashboard features the 5-way light switch, full shutdown interior light, the preferred R380 gearbox with differential locks and high and low ratio and the correct 4 spoke steering wheel. The drivetrain is completely correct and original, having been maintained regularly by the MoD and it was decommissioned and released to its one and only 1 civilian owner in 2002.
The total mileage is genuine and is 100,091 from new.
Its single owner maintained the vehicle for light use and was dedicated mainly to the purpose of transporting gardening materials around his own property (hence the name), and has never been taken off-roading.
The owner decided to sell the vehicle because of lack of use. The chassis is stated to be in excellent condition, and the floor pans and outriggers will be revised to a high standard using genuine specification components provided by our specialist fabricators.
The all-terrain tyres have covered less than 500 miles since new. The canvas tilt is the original military specification and not been replaced since the vehicle was decommissioned. The vehicle will undergo an inspection in our workshops prior to being released back into the wild for enjoyment by its new owner.
