1986(?) Defender 90

I've been looking for a NAS D90, and found this vehicle during my search. Not much detailed info on the RMR web site & I have requested more info from them. However, the VIN doesn't seem to make sense, and it appears to be newer than 1986 (things like the rear x-member/step bumper and rear disc brakes). So, what can the experts tell about it from the pictures?

Definitely not an 86 as the fuel fill would be between the wheel arch and door, but its a sweet Landy

Yeah, but that's just a minor detail.

It also looks like the top is fastened using a belt rail system like the NAS Defenders. Unlike yours which has the cleats for ropes.

I'd rather spend $50k at Copley, plus they're local to you, and you'd be getting a NAS truck. The cage that comes with the truck you're looking at is just hoops if I recall, and is not intended for a rollover.

I've been keeping an eye on their inventory as well. However, $50k doesn't seem to buy as much here in New England as it does elsewhere. I travel to RMR's neck of the woods occasionally for business, hence my interest.

I guess I just don't really see what all you're getting here for $50k - no galv frame, no NAS cage, no NAS vin, crappy paint, and a TD5 dash (and probably engine). I'd rather have this:

It might have started as a 1986, but most of it is newer, like the Td5 motor (introduced 1999), the late model Td5 dash (2002) the Td5 wings (1999). Not sure when the feds would accept it was built, but its certainly been built more than once in its life.

What I'd like to find is a nice rust-free 95 Alpine White ST with a rear bench and a Badger gutter kit top. That would be a good starting point for me. Not trying to be too specific.

You could always plasti dip the D90 in Camo green to get that color. Protects the paint underneath as well.

Don't forget to put the wading plugs in first.

Actually, plasti-dipping is now legitimate for matte finishes. It's applied using a cheap electric HVLP and quart cans of plasti-dip.

The process is quite interesting.

OK so then this for only $5k more on the asking price. No questions as to "hey it says xx year but it looks like a different year" and it has the ultra low miles you're looking for.
