Car description

Rare ex-Australian Army Land Rover Defender 110, project code name "Perentie". I brought this over with me when I moved back and now its time to sell...
Comparable to a Land Rover Defender 110 but with the following extras as ordered standard by the Oz army:- Isuzu 3.9L, 4-cyl diesel (an extremely capable and universal engine; easy to maintain) – the engine has ~220,000kms / ~135,000miles on it (several folks have mentioned the engine will last 1,000,000kms)- LT95A 4-speed transmission (upgraded over the LT85)- Full-time 4WD with a central diff locker- Salisbury / GKN rear axle- Long travel, coil spring suspension on front and rear axles. Fully floating rear axle- Hot galvanized frame- EXTREMELY RARE hardtop (only 35 created out of 3500 Perenties); good for keeping snow out and valuables in- FFR variant, including two dual battery holders in compartments behind the cab- Front bull bar and rear winch points- NATO Pintle hitch- Door locks and a keyed tumbler (many didn’t have keys)- Jerry can holders (includes 1x water can and 1x fuel can) and two rear tool pockets- A partial set of original bonnet "gardening" tools included, but not shown in the pictures (an axe and pick axe but no shovel)- The back is open – it would be great to convert to a camper / overnight vehicle, or suitable for hauling. Hillbilly Cider in Sydney use one- 12V electrical- Blackout kit- Sweet ass camo paint job- Original service log from its time in the service, and all servicing after it was decommissioned- Full light, medium and heavy repair manuals / parts lists from the Army
Upgraded since leaving the service:- LR Power steering (2015)
As was described to me by the LR Australia Defense contact: these trucks were maintained without regard to cost. I havent had any issues with it; the only bothers are the few rattles from age. I've been 4WDing with these trucks and they handle sand and trail better than most trucks with over $30k of mods. Surprisingly fuel efficient (22-24mpg around town). I'm an engineer who uses this truck as my daily driver so its been maintained scrupulously and driven responsibly. I’ve owned it for almost 2yrs so most of the post-auction bugs have been worked out. I have handled 6 of these over the past 3yrs and this is in top nick, mate
PLEASE NOTE:- The truck is currently in the US / Memphis with TN registration and titling- The original odometer died at ~213,000kms and was replaced shortly after- It is right hand drive- VIN: SALLDHAZ1BF573791
