THE LAND ROVER 110

Inspired by the US Army's wartime 'Jeep', developed in haste and intended for short-term, small-scale production, the Land Rover would defy its creators' initial skepticism. Rover bosses the Wilks brothers saw the need for a tough, four-wheel-drive, utility vehicle to serve the needs of the agricultural community in the immediate post-war years, but the Land Rover's runaway success took the company by surprise. It was developed progressively through the Series II and IIA models, and by the time the Series III version was announced in September 1971 this iconic off-road utility vehicle had sold more than 750,000 units worldwide. The Range Rover had been introduced during the preceding year, single-handedly creating the market for luxury off-roaders, and some of its refinement inevitably rubbed off on the Land Rover, which would grow increasingly less 'basic' as the years progressed. Indeed, the changes made were so extensive that a new model designation was considered appropriate, hence 'Series III'.

During the 1970s, experiments were begun to develop a 'next-generation' Land Rover using the Range Rover's coil-sprung chassis. A number of prototypes were constructed on a 100" wheelbase before the new model debuted at the 1983 Geneva International Motor Show in 110" wheelbase configuration. The following year the 90 arrived on a shorter (actually 92.9") wheelbase chassis while featuring the innovation (for a Land Rover) of wind-up windows, which were duly introduced on the 110. After the introduction of the Discovery, these cars morphed into the stoically British nomenclature of the Defender models in 1990, by which they have now become retrospectively referred to. They ran in production through to the last few months, when the end of the run was heralded by Bonhams signature sale of the 2,000,000th car built in December 2015.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

A rarer sight west of the Atlantic Ocean than in the UK, Europe and beyond, this 110 inch wheelbase Defender is an archetypal example of the model, dating from the pre-turbo diesel era of powerplant. An original left hand drive vehicle which it is reported was first supplied for military use, today it presents in the particularly popular scheme of Arctic White, appropriately titled for the all terrain vehicle! Its cabin is spartanly equipped with two seats in blue vinyl and the full length of the bodywork is covered with a canvas roof, or 'tilt' to use the colloquial term for these cars.

Still wearing its original UK registration plates the Land Rover was legally imported into the US and includes all appropriate government papers. Well maintained and cared for the Rover runs well and presents nicely.

With a whisker under 200,000 miles on the odometer, yet cleanly presented generally, the 'Landy' is probably only just getting into its stride and absolutely perfect for 'tooling around' whatever the Northeast weather should bring.
