I'm confused. What year is this Defender as the article is a hash of duff info as far as I can see. __________________________________ The ex-Difflock Ambassador to Naples, Sir Nightbar DCJC DFS and 2 bars.
It's a 2005 model the importer allegedly put 1975 plates on to try and fool the customs (America would have allowed the import if it were over 25 years old) - don't believe what the DM says - it had nothing to do with air bags - more to do with the American government not wanting Brit cars imported into their country
The use of Brit military personnel is an entirely different matter though
A 1975 model wouldn't be on a B plate, that would be a 1985. __________________________________ 2000 Vitara 4u2, 3+3 lift, 33s, winch, safari rack, steel front axle and 5:83 R&Ps, LWB brakes

Fair call. I looked at the bonnet and the air intakes, then the underside as they rolled it over. Just looked like poor attempt to disguise a Td5 but I wasn't sure about the real age as I a still of 300Tdi age.
Sad thing is the loss of a Defender. __________________________________ The ex-Difflock Ambassador to Naples, Sir Nightbar DCJC DFS and 2 bars.
Too true. I could have made good use of the doors! __________________________________ Bert the Defender 110 XS - because it's Cool (work it out yourself!)
