Just missed this one in the BVI. It sold already. http://bvinews.com/bvi/classifieds/show-ad/?id=3425/

Yeah, I was talking about how that's a ROW truck with a tub set up for hoops, but appears to have a NAS B pillar and diagonals - although the B pillar doesn't have the side "horns" that would attach to the front A par portion of the NAS cage. It just looked like an interesting mix of parts - including what appeared to be a chopped up section of the old fiberglass hard top found on some NAS soft tops.

Josh,

I told Matt that it appeared to be one of the "Extrem" (Extreme) , Defenders built for the French Market. It is a factory built LR that has a rear bulkhead and utilizes the NAS B hoop and rear step bumper. Extrems were set-up to be Cabriolets and only meant to carry a driver and 1 passenger. The rear bed area was taken up by the convertible top when folded back. I have an old LR International magazine with an article featuring one of these trucks. Here's a link to one for sale in Belgium with the top on:

http://www.autoscout24.eu/Details.as...000000&asrc=st

Also, the LR fiberglass hardtops were sold to fit these and other trucks besides NAS 90's at the time as well. Tops sold in other markets simply didn't have the cutouts for connecting the A-hoop to B-hoop above and behind the doors.

Not usually, but the dude parks outside of my building 2x a week and it sits there taunting me. The LR3 isn't filling the void in my life...
