Footnotes

  • This Land Rover has been rebuilt by the vendor, a marque specialist, for his own use. An admirer of the original Land Rover, he wanted one that would have the traditional look while benefiting from modern technology. Accordingly, he refurbished the chassis and modified it to take a Defender LT77 five-speed gearbox, while the suspension was rebuilt with parabolic springs and new shock absorbers. A 3.44:1 ratio final drive was fitted in both the front and rear axles, the front being a V8 Stage 1 type, which has CV joints to enable permanent four-wheel drive. The engine is a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder Defender petrol unit converted to run on LPG (not certified).

    The bodywork was refurbished as necessary and fitted with new doors, door tops and tailgate. A new hood and sticks were sourced. All good body panels were reused and re-sprayed, and the cappings, etc re-galvanised. A new Defender bulkhead was fitted, converted to Series 2 specification (dash panel, etc). Other new parts include the fuel tank, radiator, electric fan, exhaust system, wiring loom and 'elephant hide' seats. The brakes are servo-assisted, the fronts being Stage 1 V8 drums and the rears Defender discs. 'ALC 401A' has been used sparingly since completion in 2010 and is being sold to make room for other projects. The vehicle is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to June 2014 and Swansea V5C.
