Ex-AA SERIES III and WIDE-BODY V8 DEFENDER

Authentic ex-Series III restoration, and Land Rover Owner May 2021 issue

by Land Rover Owner |

Splashed over the cover of the May 2021 issue of LRO is one of the most radical and creative modified Defenders we’ve seen in a long time. It’s a V8 90, a work of craftmanship and ingenuity – and it’s bright yellow! Learn how its maker Mike Dowd built it, including how he waterproofed both the V8 and the transmission for off-road driving.

We’ve also got road tests of the latest hybrid Land Rovers, adventures overseas and closer to home, restoration stories, news and product reviews… it's our familiar, time-proven recipe!
