Made in the UK and exported for the Japanese market, we have sourced this excellent example - serial no 036. There were only 1,071 50th's produced worldwide and this is said to be the best Defender Land Rover made. It is the only time Land Rover produced a Defender with an automatic gearbox and a 4 Litre V8 petrol engine.
Finished in Alpine white and with all the normal 50th Anniversary enhancements like Air Conditioning, grey techno county cloth seating (6 seats), 50th carpeting, badges, logbook. All the Japanese 50th editions had black wheel arches. With 102,000 miles from new, just an average of 5,000 per annum from new and with absolutely no corrosion, this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a very desirable and collectable Limited Edition Defender with huge investment potential.
We have stripped and resprayed the whole body on this Defender due to some UV damage on the bonnet and wings. All the black components are resprayed gloss black. We have refitted the doors with Optimill anodised hinges to future proof any issues. The suspension has been upgraded using Bilstein comfort shocks and Eibach Springs. A new Bilstein steering dampener complements the ride.
There are five new 18" black steel wheels and brand new BF Goodrich KO2 all terrain tyres.
This Defender has been fitted with a Tracker Locate and comes with one-year subscription.
DAB, handsfree and Bluetooth sound system with 4 speakers.
