History Imported from UK in 2013, Don't know much about the history. It came from Mark Daniels at the Defender Center through Derek at Green Mountain Rovers. But take off an interior card and you are sure it spent a lot of years in the mud or on dusty roads. Probably came off a farm.

What year do you think it is? Clues I gathered (assuming close to stock of course...):
- door handles
- roof painted like the body
- flat bonnet
- marker lights
- "Land Rover 110" on the front grill
- possibly folding windshield (consistent with "110" sticker)

I'd think this one got re-sprayed.

Appears to have the front bar to protect steering components (Keep saying I'll make one of those or buy a cheap one).

Loic,

I'll play, ribbed roof, hinged wind shield, but roll up window push button doors. I'd guess completed summer 87 ?

A run of the UK registration gives the date of first registration as 25th January 1988, and the year of manufacture as 1988. Registered as having a 3.5lr V8, with green bodywork and exported from the UK sometime between 1 November 2011 and 1 November 2012.

I don't think I could drive that in the dead of a Fairbanks winter. The coldest I saw in Fairbanks was near -60 F.
