Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

 2millionth Land Rover Defender will be auctioned on 16th December, I propose we crowdfund the winning bid & donate it to a working museum.

Hi Everyone, so I'm on my way home from the auction at Bonham's. It was a very nice event, with the stars of land rover out in force. I stood next to Roger Crathorne himself during the auction and chatted to Gerry McGovern and others before it started. I have to report that even if we'd have reached the stretch target of £300k we would have fallen short, as it went to telephone bidders (very) abroad for a whopping £400k! Great news for the charities, but not for British heritage. This crowdfund will now close unfunded and no money will be taken from anyone's accounts. So thank you for your support and I might see you on another land rover adventure soon!

Hi All, Brian here, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have backed the cause! It's really appreciated. The media are getting involved now but I'm concerned it's too late... I've tried to get some celebrities to tweet the cause tonight, but we need the £100k total by 5pm on Wednesday 16th December or we'll miss the auction! If we do miss this auction I will roll out plan B which is to try and convince land rover to sell the very last defender off the production line in return for our money going to the 2 charities! We'll keep trying! Thanks again! Brian

I made my part as enthusiastic land rover that I am but with only 4 days left.... I think that's a little bit impossible but as a last hope, I've played in euromillions for tonight so a miracle can happen :)

Without doubt as British icons go, it's up there with the Royal Family. Here's hoping it remains where it ought to be, in a British heritage museum. God forbid it ends up in a foreign collection.

Good luck on securing what is and always will be an Icon of off road travel, and not just for farmers.. but throughout the world, bringing vaccines, doctors, teachers, engineers and emergency aid... the defender is more than its military history... but an icon of peace too
