Further information on the Tithonus below:
You are looking at a Land Rover Defender 110 Tithonus. It is completely different from the usual ex Ministry of Defence (MOD) vehicles available in the US. This Defender was put into service with the British Army from new.
During approximately 2009/10 the vehicle went through the MOD’s Project Tithonus (you can find info on project Tithonus on Wikipedia). Work included a comprehensive overhaul of only the best Defenders already owned by the MOD. All the others that didn’t make the grade were sold off.
This particular one is simply amazing - since the rebuild this has been in dry storage, it is the opinion of our engineers and the British MOT station that this has done no more than 20,000 miles since being rebuilt.
Project Tithonus was a cost-saving measure by the MOD. It had a requirement to only use vehicles that were up to current health and safety standards. Therefore instead of purchasing a new fleet of vehicles it chose to refurbish the best of the existing stock. This refurbishment, known as Project Tithonus was to make the vehicles fit for service and meet current health and safety standards for at least another 10 years.
The refurbishment this Defender went through included:
• complete bare metal respray of body and chassis
• fitting of new Wolf style composite hard top
• fitting full Wolf roll-cage
• new seatbelts front and rear
• new updated front Exmoor Trim seats
• new folding Exmoor Trim rear seats with seatbelts
• new rubber sound proofing matting front and rear
• New upgraded brakes...(Front disc brakes)
• engine refurbishment 2.5Ltr Diesel and 5 speed LT77 gearbox and transfer case

It drives superbly with no unusual clunks and bangs, no wines on the gearbox or axels and gearbox is smooth, engine fires up straight away.
This is an excellent example of a TATC rebuild.
