Year of Defender – 2015 Land Rover Defender Assembly in Solihull

Land Rover released a large amount of info for the final year of Defender production.  I’ll be posting all the info over the next few days.  But to start, the collection of images from the assembly line at the original factory in Solihull.

Starting with these two pictures showing the two parts that never changed after 60+ years.  On the left you’ll see the 2014 part, not yet painted.  And on the right, the part on my 1971 Land Rover Series IIA.
