Description

- Original truck cab, Cream with Black interior trim, 2.2 petrol

- Galvanised chassis replaced in previous restoration

- Overdrive and free-wheel hubs

That the recently discontinued Defender is immediately recognisable as a direct descendent of the Land Rover launched at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show, is huge testimony to Maurice Wilks' original design. The `Landie' was designed for light agricultural use and to create the cashflow required to kickstart Rover's post-WW2 passenger car production. Inspired by the WW2 Jeep, its specification was influenced by the austere conditions of the time - it featured the extensive use of aluminium rather than steel and rapidly became the workhorse of the world.
This Series 3 Truck Cab Land Rover was manufactured in 1974 and treated to a new galvanised chassis some years ago whilst also benefiting from being equipped with overdrive and free-wheeling hubs. The 2.2 petrol engine is understood to be original to the vehicle. Finished in Cream with Black interior, it is accompanied by a Heritage Certificate, invoices for recent works and photographs. The vendor currently rates the bodywork and electrics as "good", the engine as "excellent" and the paintwork, transmission and interior as "average". A new MoT will have been acquired by the time of sale.
