Many nations’ armed forces have employed the ubiquitous Land Rover for decades since the production of the first ever Land Rover branded vehicle in 1948. In 1983 Land Rover introduced the Land Rover 110/ One Ten and the short base Land Rover 90/ Ninety in 1984, which subsequently Land Rover changed to the Defender 110 and Defender 90, respectively. What made the Defender appealing was its ruggedness and versatility, hence its appeal to date. A truly iconic 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 LHD is up for grabs, which has seen a ground-up restoration excluding the engine and the transmission and comes with 100,000 miles on the odo.
This particular 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 LHD has been subject to a thorough restoration. The seller reports that the Pembroke Gray color was painted in 2021, and the finish shows. The roof is painted white, giving it a soothing two-tone exterior palette. The front and rear fenders are painted in black. A black grille is painted in black with the “DEFENDER” badge on top. The rear is host to a full-size spare wheel. The manual side mirrors are painted in black, as with the mesh hood and fender vents. Black-painted steelies grace the Defender. An excellent job was done to the recovered interior. In front of the dashboard, which incidentally has the speedometer in km/h plus a tachometer, and the no-nonsense classic 4-spoke land Rover steering wheel is present. The left-hand drive is reported to be a factory job. A full service has been recently finished on the Defender. The seats are done in black and feature horizontal stitching. The throttle cable has been replaced, and the brakes serviced recently.
The beating heart of this 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 LHD is the 2.5L 200tdi turbodiesel inline-4 motor. Sending power to all four wheels is the 5-speed manual transmission. Power output is estimated at 107hp and 195 lb. ft of torque. Upgrades include a new suspension from the Land Rover specialized shop Britpart and a new exhaust from the same. While its top speed of 71 mph leaves much to be desired, the Defender 110 is an excellent off-roader that can tackle almost any trail with the right equipment.
