Spotted: Hazel, Defender 110

A very unique and special defender with a story to match. A heavily upgraded 300tdi two door 110 with military origins, now set up for back country adventures in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Equipped with bush bar, winch, lights, custom roll cage, underbody protection, heavy duty axles, raised air intake, series doors, extended range fuel tank, hard and soft tops, storage, rooftop tent, awning, hot water shower, a custom trailer, and a whole lot more cool stuff.

According to Brian: This vehicle was originally a 2002 Defender 110 hardtop constructed as an evaluation unit for the Dutch military. It was decommissioned after 600km of driving around Solihull at which time Land Rover removed the drivetrain and cut the chassis in half. The body shell is of the typical civilian type with civilian lights, seats, and dash. Keith Gott Land Rover Specialists married the body and drivetrain to a 1985 chassis and performed a ground up restoration – as well as fitting numerous after-market accessories. The vehicle was imported to Canada in August 2003 and is currently registered in AB. The vehicle is in excellent condition with original NATO green military paint, and features an extensive list improvements and added gear since then.
