here is mine.
I' see 2 in my neighbourhood (Brooklyn). One is green Defender on 93 St and an orange Defender 90 around Fort Hamilton High School.

There are a ton of them sold as just blanks with no cutouts. 1239 was a total loss in 2003, which would explain the random body panels.

The autocheck shows no accidents, but the total loss that required new panels? flood?

love the accuracy of these reports.

Yes more than likely a flood. Because when these panels get wet the need replacing.

Figured out who owned that Arles, guy I know well that owns a body shop around here and has previously owned a NAS 110 and also has a Series truck and Disco. He rebuilt it after it was a salvage many years ago.

Agreed. More than likely at least 1 inch of rain falling on the top of the vehicle.
