  • Supplied new to the MoD being demobbed at the end of 2019
  • Provided a comprehensive restoration in 2020 with extensive new and renovated parts

  • Offered directly from the Guinness Family Collection, in which it has resided since 2020

The 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 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. A modernised interior and a new series of progressively more powerful and modern engines characterised things under the skin. The Defender was fitted with an all-new 2.5-litre, five-cylinder in-line turbo/diesel engine and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The Wolf variant is a specific military model that was introduced in 1994, with the MoD designating the Wolf 90 as Truck Utility Light (TUL) HS, and the Wolf 110 as Truck Utility Medium (TUM) HS; where HS stands for High Specification.

Manufactured new in 1997 and supplied new to the Ministry of Defence (MoD), the Wolf 110 offered was demobbed from service at the end of 2019 and was acquired by Land Rover specialists AJS Land Rovers. They provided the 110 with a comprehensive restoration to bring the Land Rover up to an excellent standard across the next eight months. Some of the renovation work completed included the chassis being shot blasted, powder coated, and painted with chassis paint, with the engine completely overhauled with new shells, oil pump timing cover and casing, cam belt, pulleys, water, vacuum, and lift pumps, new intercooler and radiator. The gearbox and transfer box had previously been overhauled by the MoD and was found to be in very good condition but a new gearbox oil cooler was provided.

Other mechanical attention was provided with the axles refreshed; the brakes refurbished with new discs and pads, and master cylinder; the fuel system renewed with a new tank, sensor, and cradle; new rear arms; new shock absorbers; new clutch, master and slave cylinder; replacement starter motor and alternator. Bodily, the bulkhead was stripped to bare metal and found to be rust-free, and repainted, with the rear Wolf tub a renovated one from a donor vehicle. Further cosmetic restoration comprised new front wings; a new grille, and a refurbished bonnet; as well as the Wolf wheels powder coated and shod with new G90 tyres (including the spare). The interior was completely refreshed with re-trimmed seats, renovated dashboard, and a powder-coated Remus Wolf roll cage.

Purchased into the Guinness Family Collection shortly after the end of the renovation (2020), it has resided there since and now is offered for auction with a recorded mileage of 118,653 kilometers at the time of consignment (equating to c.73,000 miles). Accompanied by a history file that contains a large selection of invoices pertaining to the renovation, a few previous MOT certificates, and a current V5C registration document.
