The exhaust is available from a number of UK suppliers. I had a (Britpart) one shipped and it wasn't that expensive.

Bro-dozer! I love it!
Briggs, I tried to get the muffler shop to run some stacks through the roof, but they refused.

It could have to do with the specific length of the LWB(108") and 3" pipe.
A little longer, shorter, different diameter can all affect the resonance.

Ditch the 3" for something more reasonable! 2.25 is fine. Then if you must, get a tip for it.

Its always amazing to see the build quality of these old LWB's.
LWBs were taken off the regular assembly line and put together almost by hand in a separate part of the shop.
Taking out my headliner tonight to have it recovered, I discovered some shims placed during assembly.
Touches like this make you appreciate the British craftsmanship...

Fun fact: Up until the early 2000's the Defender assembly line had a dirt floor.
