About this vehicle

1986 Land Rover Defender 110 – 2.5D ex Military LHD.


Originally commissioned as an FFR (fitted for radio) vehicle and later converted into a Support Vehicle, believed to be used by the RAF on air bases in Germany. During its time in service, a reconditioned engine, gearbox and transfer box were fitted.


After decommissioning, the new owner removed the 24v wiring system and installed a12v loom and equipment from a civilian Defender 110.


The basic military front seats were removed and a new purpose built seat box was fitted to accommodate a pair of comfortable car seats. The battery was relocated to the engine compartment, and two strong steel side lockers were fitted in place of the normal Military storage units. The later fitted Land Rover 110 side windows certainly makes it safer to drive.


With such low mileage (approx. 102,000 miles), the truck has hardly seen salted roads, the rust free chassis still having its original rear crossmember.


Before coming to the US, the Defender was serviced by our garage in France. The fuel injection pump and injectors were changed, a new cam belt kit fitted, the brake system was completely overhauled as were the prop-shafts. The five tires were replaced by new Good Year Wranglers. Some of the military fittings have been left - the ariel support, the fender shovel holder, heavy duty front bumper with towing pin, heavy duty rear bumperettes, the discreet interior map reading light and the 'follow me' convoy rear differential light (although that's not wired up). The spare wheel hood mounting's there (but they're a pain in the butt to lift 'cos they're so heavy), so the spare is mounted inside the truck against the rear bulkhead.


This is a basic stripped out (so therefore noisy!) Military 110 which will sing along at 60 – 70mph all day long. If you’re looking for a reliable solid low mileage left hand drive truck then give Noel a call (802 9222876) and come and see this one - you won't be disappointed. If you like it, twist Noel's arm for a deal!! At rising Defender prices, you could have a lot of fun and own an investment at the same time.

Fly into Burlington VT, and Noel will meet you there, or view the truck at Jeffersonville VT if you’re just a drive away.

Sorry to say, but our dog doesn't come with it!!



We managed to import this truck from France (via Southampton Docks UK) just before the France/UK lockdown and quarantine. All necessary fees etc were paid in the US before it was released by US Customs, and allowed to leave Newark Docks for Vermont. Ordinarily, Noel would have presented the Customs, EPA and DOT documents in person to register the truck, but the MV office was only accepting mail in applications at that time, so there was a delay. We posted the eBay ad while we were waiting for the registration papers to come thru. Please note that now the truck is fully Vermont registered and has a Vermont State Inspection certificate.

Thanks for looking.

Seller's NotesExcellent condition. Registered inspected and insured in Vermont. 100% road legal. EBay does not recognize VIN because vehicle is from Europe.Vehicle Details
