Each Custom Land Rover Defender build begins with a donor vehicle that serves as the base for the project. We take care of everything for you, including sourcing the base vehicle, ensuring eligibility for import/export, and the entire build process. We help you select the ideal donor to match your Defender needs.
We acquired this Defender from the original owner, who purchased the Defender through Conrico Land Rover in 1997. The Defender was then shipped to Baku, Azerbaijan, where it was used the explore the region during the time while her husband was working in the oil industry. We had a lovely conversation with her owners where they shared many stories about their Landy adventures – including an overland trip back to the UK in 1999 after their service in the region ended.
They were kind enough to share a large collection of historical documents and photos with us when we picked up the Defender and brought it back to our workshop in England. Included in this collection was the original Bill of Sale and export documents.
They also included an album of photos from their trips, which we are in the process of scanning in and doing a little bit of retouching. You’ll notice a trend of the Land Rover Defender 110 helping retrieve lesser offroad vehicles.
