Registration No: SJ65 KMR
Chassis No: SALLDWBP7FA470244
MOT: September 2024
The now iconic Land Rover was launched in 1948 and, incredibly, production of the traditional Defender only finished in January 2016 after a continuous run of 67 years. Outwardly, there is little to distinguish the post-1983 Defender vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. Internally, coil springs offered a more comfortable ride and a permanent four-wheel-drive system derived from the Range Rover featuring a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential gave even better off-roading capabilities. A modernised interior and a new series of progressively more powerful and modern engines characterised things under the skin.
First registered as ‘G8 MDL’ on 30th September 2015, chassis SALLDWBP7FA470244 is believed to have been built to special order some six months earlier. As one of the Landmark Edition models, its luxurious specification already included a 150W audio system with subwoofer, leather-rimmed steering wheel, air-conditioning, Premium leather upholstery, heated front seats, electric windows and carpets not to mention the stylish ‘Black Pack’ of exterior adornments. To this has been added a factory sunroof, Silver ‘Defender’ bonnet script, Silver interior door handles, rubber over mats, Black side runners and a Gloss Black finish for the alloy wheels. The Santorini Black Metallic exterior paintwork is contrasted by a Montalcino Red Metallic roof and two-tone Ebony / Pimento hide to the interior. Mechanically standard, the four-seater is powered by a 2.2 litre turbodiesel engine allied to six-speed manual transmission; a combination which permits conversation at motorway speeds (a struggle in earlier Landies). Warranted to have covered 44,000 miles from new, the Station Wagon has been serviced at 5,028, 15,714, 25,223, 30,801, 36,374 and 41,988 miles (the garages concerned being either main dealer or marque specialist). Starting readily and running well during our recent photography session, ‘SJ65 KMR’ remains highly presentable. Proudly wearing a commemorative ‘1948-2015’ badge to its radiator grille, this notably late, low mileage and well equipped Defender is worthy of close inspection. Offered for sale with the V5C Registration Document, book pack and two keys.
