The Land Rover Defender 90 is a rugged and capable SUV that was designed for off-road adventures. It was introduced by Land Rover in 1983. The Defender 90 has a boxy and utilitarian design, with a tough chassis and a powerful engine. It was equipped with a four-wheel drive system, making it capable of traversing difficult terrain. The Defender 90 was a popular choice among off-road enthusiasts and was also used by military and law enforcement agencies around the world. Today the Land Rover Defender 90 is a highly sought-after collector's item for those who appreciate its iconic design and legendary off-road capability.

This absolutely stunning example of this iconic British 4x4 model has been the subject of extensive restoration and finished to a very high standard, where all parts were either renewed or refurbished. Its original 300 TDi engine was taken out, stripped and rebuilt. The underneath of this Land Rover is as good as it is on top, showing its new galvanized Richards chassis, new shock absorbers, brakes etc – fabulous! Finished in Heritage Green with a tan/black interior and a new beige canvas hood which looks superb. There are bench seats to the rear offering great capacity for extra persons, should the occasion arise to give anyone a lift! Its 2.5 litre diesel engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and produces great towing power and torque. Stunning!
