Nice complement to 300/300, and on the other end of the condition scale as well.

I wonder how much value is added because it is the "first" or the "last"?

Maybe the middle one would be the best, #150. That way you know they had all the kinks worked out, and they were probably a little excited to be halfway done, but they weren't hurrying because they were near the end.

I would add no money for being 1/300. 300/300 is the last NAS D-90. The first 1993 110 or the first 1994 D90 maybe would add some value.

for 169k it looks like it is in pretty good (rust free looking) shape.

Oh, its not worth a penny more, but the undisciplined human mind adds artficial speciality to firsts, lasts, and other meaningless things.

I thought the badges were randomly put on at port on this side of the pond...1, 2, 3, or 300 really doesn't mean much if you know anything about defenders, right? I mean, I guess it could be cool to own 1 or 300 but really...

I don't think they were randomly put on, the VINs arent consecutive, but they are sequential.

No, of course the number is meaningless, but the last few years have seen the saga of 300/300 floating around for big money (it was almost new anyway, practically no miles) and so at least someone is willing to pay distinctive money for a distinctive number plate.

But naturally the last defender brought in isnt any different than any other, its just kinda neat. I personally won't pay extra for "kinda neat."

Well, I know in the world of art (and I guess you could make an argument that these trucks are automotive art), when an artist does an original that is then, ... made into prints, ... if a person purchases the original, it is common to gift them the first and last of the print series. (when you are talking real fine art).

I think you have to consider the special interest by some of our rover folks that own number 110 of the 93 NAS 110's. Or the story of the person (now deceased) that owned #1 of the 90's and number 90 of the 90's, and the last of the 90's of each year.
There is perceived (as Jim states) added value to those types of numbers.

We have seen this in all venues of rovers: Great Divide Classics, Holland and Holland Rangies, 50th Anniversary Discos, G4's, Camel Trophy trucks, and the list goes on.

The only (and I mean only) reason the NAS 110's have so much value (relative to other 110's or to what the trucks originally sold for), is because there were only 500 of them (of which ... what, maybe 300 remain?)

I think there is value in these trucks, ... even if mental.

Thanks
Dendy

I bought it about 5 or 6 years ago. It is of course a 94 I bought to replace a 97 in Beluga Black.
It was registered to LRNA and according to lore it was driven by Charlie Hughes then President of LRNA.

Follow-up Post:

Here is what it looks like in the summer. I now have a factory hardtop on it for winter.

I just hit 30,000. I've ignored temptation to add modifications and have kept it all original.
I did add Hella's up front and a factory hardtop but nothing that cannot be easily returned to original.

Great looking truck Eric. Check out Charlie Hughes's book "Branding Iron." It has some insight into how he developed the Land Rover brand in America--including where the d90/d110 fit into the picture.
