Vehicle Description

1964 Land Rover Defender Additional Info: An incredibly interesting, well sorted, and well executed build that is a blend of classic and neo-classic Rover. What you see when you view this Rover is a Defender Series 2A 109 Wagon, what you drive is a Range Rover Classic LWB. A great deal of care and engineering went into building the vehicle. The body is a 1964 Series 2A Station Wagon. The 109 started as a rust free well preserved, left hand drive example and was de framed and completely restored before being mated to the chassis of a later Range Rover Classic. Modern upgrades include a ZF 4spd automatic gearbox, LT 230 transfer case with permanent AWD, and 4-wheel disc brakes among other additions. Power comes from a refurbished and freshened 4.2 liter Rover V8 engine from a donor Range Rover. Interior is all new with replacement seats, headliner, carpets, steering wheel, dash and door cards. Instrumentation is original 109 adding to the character of driving a classic vehicle that is not so classic. All body work from the firewall forward was custom tailored to fit around the longer 4.2 liter powerplant and Range Rover Running Gear. Additional custom sheet metal includes a "safari roof" that is designed for generous airflow into the passenger cabin without allowing the elements inside. The Sorting of any custom Rover after a build as extensive as this is in most cases the part that induces someone to pull one's hair out, but rest assured a great deal of time and energy was taken to get everything sorted and make this Defender capable of daily driver status. All maintenance and servicing was performed by J&G Automotive, a local classic Rover shop that has taken on legendary status inside the local Rover community. This Rover is well documented with extensive records, and wear items are all as new Amazingly restored 1964 Land Rover Defender, this Defender is a matchup of a 1989 Land Rover Classic Long Wheel Base chassis and running gear with A 64 Defender body. Offering a smoother ride better road manners and comfort in a Classic Defender Style. Many man-hours and many dollars spent to create this masterpiece, truly must be seen and driven to fully appreciate the quality of the build.
