“Land Rover 6×6 trucks are some of the meanest looking automobiles ever envisioned.” –ClassicOverland.com, October 2019
The authoritative website, ClassicOverland, continued: “The 6×6 originates from the late 1980s. Firstly, it was developed as a specialist vehicle to meet the requirements of the Australian Army. Furthermore, the 6×6 was designed to carry high payloads over long distances of unforgiving terrain and weather conditions. The vehicle was a massive hit. Not long after, the heavy-duty truck was made available to civilians and other militaries around the world. Land Rover designed them to laugh in the face of the roughest terrain and dominate the trickiest overlanding trails. Besides the second take of stares everyone gives when seeing this monster truck in action, there are a few advantages for driving on 6 wheels: First, 6 wheels provide better grip over all-terrain. Secondly, they also increase the vehicle's load capacity. Thirdly, they offer better weight distribution for a safer trip.”
Offered here is one of these rare Land Rover Defender 110 6x6 vehicles, built specifically by Land Rover for Reynolds-Boughton of Amersham, England, which was a farm supplier. The right-hand-drive truck's odometer shows 85,000 miles and it has only recently been imported from England. The proven-rugged 2.5-liter, inline-four, turbo-diesel engine delivers power to all six wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. Specifically, the vehicle has a permanent 4-wheel drive on the first 2 axles. The third axle is driven via the pass-through in the second axle, engaged via a clutch when the central differential is locked. The rest of the drive-line is stock.
The exterior of this Defender is painted in a metallic gunmetal gray, while the two-row, four-door cab's roof is gloss black as is the front grille. Atop the Defender's characteristic flat front fenders, adjacent to the engine bay, a non-slip textured surface ensures safe footing should servicing be necessary during inclement weather. The same textured material trims the bottom portion of the body and the rear of the truck. All fenders feature gloss-black flared extensions. A “snorkel” air intake allows for deep-water fording. A specially engineered, extremely strong roll cage has been added to the cargo box to protect four jump-seat passenger positions located there. That rear seating area is accessed by way of a swing-out rear tailgate. Mirrors, door handles, and all six wheels are rendered in black; there is no chrome. Front-axle wheels are mounted with General Grabber TR tires; the rear two axles feature Continental all-terrain tires (235-85-16) while the cargo-box-positioned spare is a BFGoodrich T/A all-terrain tire.
Inside, the Defender sports the model's standard dashboard and gauge cluster oriented for right-hand drive. Upholstery for the two front bucket seats and the second-row bench is a medium-gray-and-black, textured fabric in excellent condition. The cabin has a full fabric headliner. Factory rubber floor coverings are in place throughout the cabin.
Under the hood, the diesel engine and all related components (including the Garrett turbocharger) are in place in a clean and tidy compartment. The data plates for the truck are present and properly located. Viewed from beneath, the truck's chassis is undamaged, with metal surfaces treated with rust-preventative. The Defender comes with a shop manual.
While the more than 170 high-definition photographs of this highly capable truck, taken from every angle, including from underneath, faithfully represent its excellent, well-maintained condition, a vehicle this special deserves to be inspected up-close. For that reason, we encourage in-person visits to our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. We ask only that an advance appointment be arranged by phone or email. Our showroom is not open to the public, so your appointment helps ensure you have our full attention during your visit.
ClassicOverland summed up this Defender's undeniable appeal: “There isn't a surface that this beast can't conquer. Whether you're based around Louisiana's swamps, Arizona's deserts, Alaska's arctic tundra, or outside Pebble Beach – this legendary machine will be right at home wherever you park it.”
