For consideration is a superb 1995 Land Rover Defender 90 in Coniston Green (chassis 2129). I am the second private
owner of this vehicle - I purchased it in 2003 from the first private owner after returning from Iraq. It was sold
to me from a couple from Denver, CO and my understanding is the wife received the vehicle as a gift from her
father. They were very nice folks who treated me well and sold me a great vehicle. I would very much like to do the
I have meticulously maintained this vehicle for the past 13 years using it mostly while home on leave. When I was
away it was in climate-controlled storage and looked after by my (very) meticulous father. Since purchasing the
vehicle I have made a significant number of upgrades and added some of the most desirable accessories. In 2012 she
underwent a significant "service life extension" for use during my wedding. The work was done by a professional
body shop specializing in unique and antique vehicles. Some of the major work included: cleaning/restoring the
paint to original condition, repainting all of the "black work" on the vehicle (roll bar, brush bar, tire carrier,
etc.), complete rhino-lining of the interior and a complete Ziebart undercoating for rust-proofing & noise
reduction. The vehicle has been very mechanically sound but I have replaced the: water pump, fuel pump, ignition
switch and master clutch cylinder. Only original Land Rover parts have been used (I gave Rovers North a lot of
business over the years). She also received a new Interstate battery in 2015. When I purchased the vehicle in
2003 she came with: original grey fiberglass top with alpine windows, a BestTop soft top (in excellent condition),
5 Tornado alloy rims and a wrap-around brush bar.
This vehicle includes all of that plus the following extensive list of upgrades and accessories:
- NRP Stainless Steel Performance Exhaust System (center muffler silencer, tailpipe, all stainless steel hanger &
hardware). This was added in 2012.
- 6 new BF Goodrich All Terrain Tires...4 on the vehicle plus 1 on the rear tire carrier and 1 on the hood. There
are 5 Tornado rims plus one "NATO" military rim (mounted on the hood).
- Metal grill from Rovers North to replace the original plastic grill. I purchased a radiator muff at the same
- Hood (aka 'bonnet') spare tire mount. This tire has a flat black NATO-style military rim.
- Black diamond plate on hood under the spare tire mount.
- NAS V8 raised air intake (Rovers North)
- "Arctic Wolf" air intake courtesy of the UK armed forces.
- I also have the original "flat" air intakes plus 1 additional winter (hooded) air intake.
- Spare tire covers for both the front and rear spare tires (these are brand new).
- High Lift Jack 48" - XT485 with off road base and neoprene cover (all brand new)
- Rear tire carrier mount for 1 "jerry can" and the jack. Fuel can is new - never used. The mount is included but
not yet pictured (or mounted).
- Original driver and passenger door hinges were replaced with stainless steel hinge set from Rovers
North...instead of painting them a matching color I decided to have them (professionally) painted black by the shop
that did my 2012 upgrade. The black matches the other "black work" on the vehicle and gives a nice contrast on the
- Alpine Stereo (the original quit and needed to be replaced).
- Mantec rock sliders (made in the UK and purchased from Rovers North).
- Stainless steel sill guards (purchased through Atlantic British).
- Stainless steel gas tank shield - needed to replace the rusting metal straps and went with the best Rovers North
- Numerous misc. parts included: fuses & relays, convex mirror, nylon seat covers, bulbs, etc.
Floor mats are not pictured as I have just ordered a new set from Rovers North. The replacement mats I purchased 12
years ago are now in need...of replacement.
The vehicle is not rigged with a wire harness for towing; something I always meant to do but never got around to
doing. Bottomline is this vehicle has never, ever towed anything.
Off-road use...I must confess she has seen almost no off-road use while in my possession. She has spent the
majority of her time on rural roads in Illinois with trips to Michigan (the last being my wedding in 2012). She has
not seen any heavy duty off-road play.
While she has Montana plates and is titled in Montana she has never been...I borrowed a friend's address to title
in Montana instead of Illinois for (a) expense and (b) Montana plates look better. Plates were just renewed and are
good until October 2017.
This list is as inclusive as I can make it at the moment - I will make updates as needed. I understand the milage
is higher than some vehicles listed here but this vehicle is truly well maintained and in outstanding condition. I
will answer any questions you have and will also entertain reasonable offers. Thanks for looking and if you have
any questions please feel free to contact me. I understand this is a big purchase and I want this gal to find a
good home. She has been very good to me over the years and I want her to find the right home.
I also encourage reasonable offers using the "make an offer" feature. Thanks for looking!

Jaguar has moved its Range Rover Evoque-bodied tests of the production C-X17 Concept from icy streets to the legendary Nürburgring, as work continues on the brand's first SUV.
Really, there's not a great deal of new stuff here. Based on the number plates, this is a different vehicle from the one we saw back in March, which we originally identified as the upcoming replacement for the Land Rover Freelander/LR2. The details, though, appear largely the same. The biggest distinction we can see between the March tests and this are the US-spec headlights, which add amber reflectors at their sides. Based on these shots, it does seem as if the C-X17 should be a fairly poised road vehicle, as the engineers hustle it around the 'Ring.
Of course, as soon our spies can capture images of a production-bodied C-X17, we'll be sure to pass those on to you. Until then, take a look up top for images of the Range Rover-bodied Jaguar as it tests at Germany's Nürburgring. You can also scroll down for our March images for the C-X17 mules testing on public roads.
Jaguar-Land Rover is not what you'd call a volume automaker by any stretch of the imagination. But in the dozen years since it started manufacturing at its Halewood plant near Liverpool, England, the automaker has already built its millionth vehicle.
The landmark vehicle is a Range Rover Evoque, done up in white with red roof and mirrors, black wheels and a red and black interior. The crossover is set to be donated to Cancer Research UK, which will auction it off next year to help fund its projects in the north-west of the country.
Halewood started manufacturing the Jaguar X-Type in 2001, then went on to assemble the Land Rover LR2 / Freelander 2 before taking on production of the Evoque a year and a half ago. The facility reached the 300,000-unit milestone just last year as production moved to a 24-hour cycle for the first time in either marque's history.
The Middle East is one of the fastest-growing markets for Land Rover, so it makes sense that the automaker is looking to set up shop in the region. According to Automotive News, Jaguar Land Rover is in talks with the people of Saudi Arabia to build a factory in the country at an expected initial cost of $1.2 billion. Still in the early stage of talks, the proposed facility could start up by 2017 using locally sourced materials such as steel and aluminum.
Such an arrangement could be beneficial for both entities as Saudi Arabia looks to diversify its oil-reliant economy and Land Rover could get local production capacity of around 50,000 units. The report also says that the agreement talks about the possibility for Jaguar models to be built at the same plant further down the road.
This won't be the first vehicle produced in Saudi Arabia - that honor goes to the KSU Gazal-1 - but it will be the first from a major global automaker.
