1997 DEFENDER 90 WOLF RE-IMAGINED For Sale

Description

First registered in October 1997 by the Ministry of Defence and based on the Defender this Wolf 90 was released from service and registered for civilian use in March 2020. At release from service, it was being operated by 158 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps. Its most recent civilian keeper has a passion for transforming MOD Wolfs into something different and extra special acquired the vehicle in January 2021 to join his collection. In common with most of his existing collection he decided to improve and modify the vehicle to his exacting specifications, the result, an exceptional Defender.

Subject to a full body-off restoration in 2022, with each panel being painted individually in a shade affectionately known as Cappuccino before being reassembled, the attention to detail is superb. The heavy-duty chassis has been cleaned and all the cappings have been galvanised to compliment the Cappuccino colour along with the white powder-coated roll-cage visible when the soft top is removed.

Also fitted are a Dark Brown bespoke mohair soft top from All Wheel Trim, Willis Systems load bay kit, Dark Chocolate Leather interior from Exmoor Trim. An LED upgrade light kit has been added to complete the modernisation. The original heavy duty Wolf wheels have been repainted and fitted with new Michelin XZL tyres.

These unique vehicles can?t be compared to a standard Defender, as they were originally built to withstand the rugged requirements of the Army for the MoD. It features a 113bhp, 300TDi engine with no electronics except for the fuel pump solenoid, rust proofed chassis from new, gearbox cooling system, reinforced front bulkhead, rails and sills, reinforced Salisbury rear axle and standard reinforced front axle with uprated differentials.

The last owner has requested the Wolf?s history from the Ministry of Defence under the Freedom of Information Act, and this should be available shortly.

An Advisory free MoT is in place, and this expires November 2024. If preferred, we can de-clutter the vehicle by removing the pick axe and shovel so please regard them as optional no-cost extras. Just driven 160 miles to our Pulborough base and performed without fault.
