You likely already know how desirable the North American-spec Defender 90s are, and that they are now $70,000 to $100,000 in the collector world. This truck gets attention everywhere it goes — so be prepared. SaysFour Wheelermagazine: “Many consider the Defender 90 the last of the ‘real’ Land Rovers, with their short wheelbase, solid axles, and mountain-goat ability. Add to that quirky English ergonomics—er, charm—and you have the basis for a purpose-built trail rig that is chock-full of character.”

A brand-new toy has arrived, so it is time for new adventures for the Defender, with a knowing new owner. Happy bidding.
