‘Huey’ the last ever Land Rover Defender
With a successor not due until 2018, the last Land Rover Defender left the production line of the Solihull plant on 29th January 2016. Created in the image of the first ever Series 1 Land Rover nearly seven decades ago, the last of its kind has been nicknamed Huey, because of its number plate – H166 HUE.
Huey is made in keeping with the original spec of the first Defender, including UK right-hand drive, soft-top, hood cleats, an underbody support strut and Grasmere Green paintwork, making Huey the ultimate heritage Land Rover vehicle.
Inside, the cream coloured leather seats and Grasmere Green dash and trim make Huey feel like a real heritage one-off. With a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine and a 93-inch wheelbase, Huey is the smallest of the Defender models.
If you want to see Huey for yourself, he will be on display as part of the Land Rover Heritage Collection.
