I’ll take it!
Nice! I see the occasional Defender here in Toronto, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of the pickups. You definitely can’t mistake the classic lines for anything else on the road, and I would take a Defender (wagon or pickup) over a Range Rover any day. I’ll take a Diesel one, thanks.
Hide the hood with your thumb on the third photo, and it reminds me of a Jeep Forward Control truck. Spare is in the wrong spot, but that’s easily fixed.
There are lots with the spare in that position, farmers in The UK have the spare there all the time.
The High Capacity Pick Up (HCPU) was developed in collaboration with British Aluminium for both Series 3 109”WB & Stage 2 110”WB chassis. Much of the construction used extruded aluminium sections. The spare wheel location on this vehicle is correct position. I worked at Land Rover from 1969 to 2004
That is really nice. I’m on a total L-R loveliest at the moment but I’m surrounded by SWB/LWB stations wagons. That rear tray is super neat, but I’d still go for the open cab dropdown windscreen ex-army thing.
