Land Rover of the Week – Defender Fire Rescue Vehicle

Check out our Land Rover of the Week! Tim sent us some images of his Carmichael Fire Rescue conversions.  These are a couple of amazing looking vehicles.


Ibex/Carmicheal Defender based conversion – looks in great condition.

This got me thinking about how these great old Land Rover conversions work – I came across this YouTube video of a guy who takes a Defender conversion for a drive and the owner explains the history of his 6×6 Defender Fire Rescue Defender.  He explains how he restored it to full working order and demonstrates some of its features.  It is pretty cool!

Take a look at one of the Coolest Land Rover Defender conversions…

Check out a recent blog ‘Land Rovers at War’ where we mentioned these great old vehicles.

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us Tim.  Remember to keep the images coming so we can share more stories of Land Rovers that fill the lives of our followers.

      Hi Pete, Yes, maybe I should have been more precise, it’s an Ibex/Carmicheal Defender based conversion. Thanks for pointing this out.
