Lot Description

This Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon is a handsome example of the rugged and iconic 4x4, with low mileage from new and a few high-quality off-road modifications. Under the bonnet is the 2.2-litre DT224 engine, which produces 120bhp and 265lb-ft of torque, driving all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The odometer shows just 20,447 miles from new, though this will rise slightly during the auction as the Defender is still in use.

First registered on 30 September 2013, this Defender represents the last iteration of the ‘classic’ model, which was produced until January 2016. Its log book shows only one prior keeper – which is understood to have been a utility hire company – and the current owner acquired it approximately six months ago.

While this Defender’s full exterior roll cage and Terrafirma rock sliders suggest this example is geared up for serious off-road work, the bodywork is in very smart condition, with even factory panel gaps. There are only a handful of small marks, including small dents to both offside doors, one on the bonnet’s leading edge, and one on the nearside front quarter by the front bumper.

Offering a distinctive contrast to the more commonly seen hues of black and grey, the Fuji White paintwork has a smooth and glossy appearance, though the seller does note that there are small scratches and scuffs across the body, which is commensurate with the car’s use.

All of the exterior trim presents very well, as do the light lenses, which are clear and bright, with additional illumination being provided by the two front spotlights and the single rear work light, which are mounted to the roll cage. The spot lights and work light are on independent fused circuits with control switches mounted in between the centre cup holders.

An aftermarket external reversing buzzer is also fitted, and the wiring from a previously installed reversing camera setup has been left in place, to aid install of a new camera setup if required. This Defender rides on a set of 16-inch steel wheels, which are in good shape, with only minor surface scratches and corrosion showing through their white-painted surfaces.

Inside, the cabin is configured in the full seven-seat specification, and the seats are upholstered in a mixture of durable grey cloth and vinyl. The front seats look very smart, thanks in part to their re-trimmed bases, and though the side bolsters have flattened slightly with use. The second and third row seats are also in good order, though the offside second row seat’s headrest has previously torn and been repaired by hand, as has the side of the offside third row seat.

As a utilitarian vehicle, the Defender’s interior trim is designed with function in mind. This example shows some minor cosmetic wear, including a scuff towards the top of the front passenger door card and some general discolouration to the steering wheel rim. An Alpine stereo provides a modern touch and features Bluetooth and USB connectivity, plus a steering wheel-mounted microphone for hands-free calls. All of the cabin’s controls, switches and electrical items work as they should, and there are no warning lights displayed on the dashboard.

Well cared-for by a Land Rover and utility hire specialist, this Defender 110 is reported to be in excellent mechanical health. Its last scheduled maintenance was performed in July 2019 at 18,603 miles by SHB Hire Ltd, which included replacement of the engine oil and filter. Prior to this, the car received its four-year and three-year services in August 2017 and September 2016, at 9,397 miles and 8,489 miles respectively.

Most recently, its current owner had independent Land Rover specialist G&G Automotive reseal the transfer box and renew the transfer box oil in July 2020. An uprated Terrafirma steering rod and track rod were also fitted, and the steering box was adjusted, before a four-wheel alignment was carried out.

Its last MOT test was conducted on 25 August 2020 at 20,419 miles, which it passed after a non-functioning offside stop lamp was repaired. Advisories were issued for corrosion on the front brake pipes and slight deterioration of the rear tyres.

The front wheels are fitted with nearly-new Goodyear Wrangler tyres, while the rears are shod with Cooper Discoverer STT items, which have plenty of tread but are showing some age-related wear as noted in the last MOT.

Accompanying this Defender is its document wallet containing a full set of books, as well as the original tool kit. Its comprehensive service history is stored online with Land Rover. It comes with one key and alarm fob.

This Land Rover Defender 110 is an incredibly capable and versatile vehicle, which combines rugged charm with everyday practicality. Revered by enthusiasts of all ages, it is as well-suited to utility use as it is to life as a family car, with its folding third row of seats offering even greater flexibility. Presented in fine fettle and with low mileage from new, this Defender is ready for whatever challenges may come its way.
