From the Series 1 in 1948 to the demise of the Defender in 2016. No more will be made.
This site tracks each UK Defender's rate of usage and seeks to track those that are scrapped, stolen or exported overseas. The aim is to ultimately build a picture of as many Land Rovers as possible; seeing as 25-30% were originally based in the UK, this is a good starting point. This will open up the ability to delve into some interesting questions:
Defenders from eBay appear on this site within a few minutes of them being listed. Advanced pattern matching ensures that all possible vehicles are retrieved from eBay, as well as the removal of false positives, such as 2020 "Defenders".
70% of adverts have the vehicle registration mark (VRM - number plate) visible. This is extracted using ANPR technology and matched against our database of all Defenders. This allows us to bring MOT and mileage history alongside the adverts, as well as a comparative index for each vehicle.
A further 10% of adverts have enough information for us to be able to uniquely identify the vehicle from the database, exposing its history where the VRM is not visible in the advert.
