Series II NZ

So I have been talking about Defenders here in NZ and one of the guys that works here in Wanaka says he restored a 1959 series II. He is originally from South Africa and restored it there and shipped it here when he moved to NZ. It's a beautiful truck and although I don't know much about Series trucks it looks great. He tells me based on the vin # it's the 4th series ever produced and was formally a military truck.

Very nice 88, Just remember they go slow, but they will always get you there and back.

Looks like a pleasure to work under the hood-lots of room with no master and booster in the way!

Nice truck!

Good luck with your search for a defender. Sounds like a pretty exciting time in your life!

Must be a popular '59 color, I looked at a '59 109 in that color a while back.
