(ex) Australian Army Land Rover Part 2 – Mine

Don’t want to spam my readers with too much tech info about my vehicle, but here’s the vital statistics –

  • Ex-Australian Army Land Rover 110 Fitted For Radio (FFR) with Winch
  • Civilian Land Rover Defender 110 hardtop fitted
  • Original canvas sides and rear used with hardtop
  • Body painted all over Protec Camouflage Brown (one of the three colours used in the ADF vehicle camouflage paint scheme)
  • Hardtop and canvas painted all over Protec Camouflage Green (one of the three colours used in the ADF vehicle camouflage paint scheme)
  • ATP snorkel
  • Power steering
  • Dual 12v battery system in place of FFR auxiliary 24v system
  • Heavy duty clutch
  • RFSV split rims and original Goodyear Hi-Miler Xtra Grip tyres
  • RFSV Mk I style dual jerrycan carriers fitted

The vehicle has been great. In January/February I took it on a road trip to Western Australia and back, a distance of around 12,000km. In a week or two I’m taking it to Tasmania for a week, and in September a 13,000km road trip around northern Australia.

A quick gallery of the vehicle and some of its travels while I’ve owned it:
