Bull Bar Part # or manufacturer

Can anyone identify the bull bar in the photo? I would love to have one and already posted a wanted ad. I tried googling for a good while but couldn't find who makes it or what the part number is. Any help?

Its a Land Rover genuine Parts Bull Bar dating from late 1980's, I fitted one to my 110 County V8. They are unusual because the top rail is part of the main bar - unlike conventional bull bars. From memory they also did a flat version without the wrap around feature.

Thats genuine, I had one fitted to my 1987 110 CSW when it was only 3 years old. I remember it was about the time they were getting bad press and insurers started kicking off about them. Mine went into a skip.........(the bull bar that is) Whistle 2010 XS USW

What he said Thumbs Up

I had the flat version on my 300Tdi 90. Unfortunately I doubt very much there will be any decent ones around now as they had a habit of rusting under the outer coating - mine did & eventually I removed it.

I have got this. Got it used. It required quite a lot of work to make it usable again. In RAVE there is manual, how to mount in on car, but for newer version. Does it exists also for this old? I need some paper for our MOT equivalent. "Drobek" = The Small One - Discovery 2, "BlufĂ­nek" = The Blue Thing - Defender 130, and for me at least Ford Mondeo Smile

Had one on my 90. Had a minor bump and instead of just a bent left wing, the bull-bar folded and bent the other wing, bonnet, rad panel and bumper too! Horrible thing.

Here it is when the Landy was new...

2 on ebay but all collection only, you could email the sellers if they are willing to post to the USA, but i recon the cost would be high though. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back
