Especially built for the Ministry of Defence. it is understood
that only approximately 8. 00 Defender Wolf's were made and a large
number of those would have been hard tops and/or the 110 variety or
lefthand drive. This righthand drive soft top or full tilt example
is particularly rare. Sources suggest the upgrades to the standard
defender put the Wolf price to the MoD at around £40. 00 in 1997/8.
Upgrades included a 2" ride height increase due to heavy duty
suspension design whilst the chassis on this HD (Heavy Duty) is
said to be eight times stronger than standard and fitted with a
heavy duty roll cage. prop-shaft protection between chassis and hub
and heavy duty bumpers. The vehicle also features sealed headlights
with breather pipes to top of windscreen. 113bhp. 300TDi engine
with no electronics except 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 and uprated diffs. 80 litre reinforced fuel tank. very
tough and heavy duty Wolf wheels. convoy light system with a light
illuminating the white painted rear differential. NATO towing
hitch. 24v electrical system plus 24v generator and side mounted
spare wheel to name but a few modifications. A few Wolf Defenders
have been de-commissioned by the forces and are now in civilian
hands but are quite rare. especially ones that have not suffered
damage and in excellent condition. Virtually all appear to
have been very well maintained mechanically by the MoD as would be
expected.

This particular example was sold by the MoD on 25th January 2013
and has had one owner since and is showing approximately 63. 00
miles which the owner strongly believes is genuine. The condition
from the forces was described as 'excellent' and a long established
and highly respectable military Land Rover specialist described it
as "the best one I have seen".

The owner informs us the paintwork was original and excellent;
there was no indication of any damage or corrosion and it was leak
free. The condition was so good it was decided to make it even more
special and unique. In 2013. the Wolf was stripped down inside and
out leaving the body on and the engine and all running gear in
place. The original exterior synthetic paint was professionally
stripped to bare metal by hand. any small dents repaired and the
bodywork resprayed with a modern gloss finish. All repainted parts
(doors. bonnet. bumpers etc) were refitted using new. genuine
parts. rubbers. seals. nuts. bolts. rivets and screws. The interior
is also in its original condition and was left this way to allow
the Wolf's patina to be appreciated but the front seats were
replaced with leather items and a heavy duty. sound deadening floor
cover was made especially to ease long distance driving along with
a professionally installed Blaupunkt 24v Radio/CD/USB/SD with
Bluetooth.

The engine has not been overlooked and boasts a double core
intercooler. a VNT Turbo. blue silicone hoses and improved gear
ratios to assist high speed motorway driving. Keeping the Wolf on
the road are high performance Bilstein shock absorbers and steering
damper. The Wolfs are perhaps one of the most sought after
Defenders with this being a superb and unique example combining the
ruggedness of a military Wolf with civilian creature comforts - a
highly collectible and usable example of the now iconic
Defender.
