motodrome are pleased to offer GB103, an unrestored and very original 1998 Land Rover Defender 50th Anniversary 4.0 V8, as usual finished in Atlantis Metallic.
50ths are fitted as standard with automatic transmission, anti-roll bars, air conditioning (cold on this one) , factory Safari rollcage, cubbybox, deleted rear bulkhead, NAS rear step, full-length chrome sidesteps, and pewter alloy wheels (shod with BFG all-terrains) all of which this retains.
It’s further fitted with electric front windows, sports exhaust, mudflaps all round, and the original, and hard to find, stereo, plus the original steering wheel.. Shortly after taking delivery in 1998, the first private owner sent it to Overfinch, for fitting of their ‘engine performance upgrade’ kit and ‘performance gearing conversion’, and 22 years on it still feels much more lively than a standard example.
Mileage, history etc
This one comes with superb provenance and history – odometer reading now 110000 miles in the hands of just 3 previous keepers, supported by superb history including the original sales invoice, a large service printout, and a large folder of bills and old MOT’s etc. We even have the original Land Rover 50th anniversary promotional catalogue etc, plus correspondence between the first owner and Land Rover about the forthcoming new model in 1998, which I’ve only ever seen once before with a 50th.
Last serviced (by specialist) in November 2019 at 109106m, and the same specialist professionally removed the LPG system previously fitted, in 2019
It comes with MOT to February 2021 and 6 months warranty on sale. .
