1999 Land Rover Defender 90

UK registered ex-Italian army truck; LHD; superb condition underneath; chassis looks as good as new; rugged and gutsy 300TDI engine; the last vehicle you would ever need to buy

First UK registered late last year, this very smart ex-Italian military Land Rover presents in remarkable condition. It has had a new speedo head, so we do know the indicated 17 miles is not correct, although a quick look around the vehicle suggests it has seen very little work since it was built in November 1999.

A special order for the Army, it comes with a bullet-proof 300TDi engine mated to the equally indestructable R380 gearbox. Produced at a time when the TD5 unit was supplied in the civvy models, the Army would have opted for this tough Turbocharged engine for reliability and practicality reasons.

The accompanying BMIHT certificate lists it as a Defender 'basic' in Nato Green delivered through Land Rover SPA in Italy. In order for it's UK registration, it was presented for an MOT which it passed with no advisories - current until June 2022.

One of the most remarkable things about this vehcile is the condition of the chassis which retains its factory paint and actually looks factory fresh. If you are looking for a  Land Rover to last a lifetime, this is a car for you....
