We are very pleased to be offering for sale this totally unique and phenomenal modified Defender
Literally hundreds of hours and thousands of pounds have gone into creating this super truck.
A full chassis up restoration has been completed to include numerous new and upgraded components.
The engine has been replaced with a more powerful and reliable OM606 3 litre diesel, removed from a Mercedes E Class saloon, this is coupled to a fully rebuilt ashcroft engineering automatic transmission, and the installation looks as if it had been done at the factory.
Now producing circa 200 bhp it propels the vehicle along extremely well and it can sit at 80 mph with ease.
As part of the build the truck has had all new suspension, brakes, 4 pin uprated differentials, shortened prop and driveshafts, steering rack, radiator and oil cooler, the wiring looms have been reworked to operate seamlessly with the new engine and the overall fit and finish is remarkable.
The body was treated to many new part and panels and it was ensured no rust was present prior to being finished to a really high standard in santorini black.
Up to date LED lighting combined with numerous black accent pieces and heavy duty bumper and steering guards give this truck a real presence and sense of purpose.
Inside has been treated to a full custom half leather re-trim with alcantara roof lining, electric windows and central locking, heated seats and a DAB/bluetooth radio with upgraded speakers ensure this truck has all the creature comforts you could wish for.
It took over a year to complete and there are over 100 photographs of the build available, we are certain you could not get close to building the same again at this price level.
With production of this model now finished after nearly 68 years, it will certainly remain a future classic and sound usable investment for years to come.
