I’ve made the tough decision to sell my Defender. She performed extremely well on my recent overland adventure to Central Asia, covering 23,000 miles in 5.5 months. I can no longer get vehicle insurance in the UK as a non-resident. I’ve considered moving it to France but, with no further overland travel on the horizon, I’ve decided that it makes more sense to sell her. Details are below.

A history of the work on this vehicle can be found on my blog using this link – and there are plenty of photos of the vehicle on the blog.

Vehicle has recently been serviced and minor issues that arose on the trip have been repaired. The vehicle is still covered by MOT but will be given a fresh MOT soon.

Asking price is 16,000 GB Pounds (which is way less than I’ve put into this vehicle).

Vehicle is located in Somerset, England.
