Those are two different trucks. The fastback with the tire carrier and bikini top was owned by Jessie Rodick, and used to be a black truck, and was painted Ford Green. Jessie now lives in Australia.

Looks like it's back up for sale again?

One of a kind rust free North American Spec '94 Land Rover Defender D90 with 120K miles, ZF automatic conversion and stock 3.9 V8. I have owned this truck since 07 and invested some $18K plus in the build. The rig was being built for extreme off-road but still has the ability to run down the highway at 70 and fit in most garages with top lights folded down or back. Body is in good condition with some minor scrapes at the back right quarter and a dent or ding here and there but is no way bashed. Nose has been sprayed with Rhino liner as has the interior tub area. Still missing some minor cosmetic things like body plugs, upper windshield trim strip, rear speakers and trims, but mechanically strong and sound. I have 2 small leaks - one from the t-case and one from the oil cooler lines. I will have both of these addressed before truck is purchased as I hate a leak of any kind like the next guy. If you are looking for a pristine stock D90 this is not the rig but for the money, it is a much more unique and capable rig. Truck does not have A/C but heater does work as do lights, radio, and wipers and top fully removes or bimi top can be left on. I equipped the truck with a pull out lockable tuffy storage box in the rear for secure transport of firearms, ammo, tools or spare parts. I also have the factory rear bench, high mount brake light bar and factory grille which are included. There is no rust on the frame though a few brackets attached to the frame show so rust. Pans, tub and bulk head in excellent shape as well.

Mods I haven't finished include spare tire mount, spacers for rear bumper-ettes, and installing a winch. The spare tire could be mounted to the V brace in the back with the addition of a single cross bar and lug plate leaving the tire to rest against the V bar itself or the addition of an overhead basket and additional of limb risers. Tire would be too tall to mount to the hood. Running the 37's in extreme travel situations allows for the rear tires to rub the bumper-ettes. They simply need to be spaced out another 2.5" back off the frame for tires to fully travel. The equipe bumper is great and ready for winch. I went with this bumper because of its extreme clearance and not necessarily for front end protection though the bar is very stout. I read others reviews on the bumper with some suffering body/panel damage. It functions exactly as I would have imagined, plowing saplings away from body and when approaching a crevice or boulder giving maximum approach vs other bumpers out there. Its like anything else when it comes to off-roading - driver ability, knowing your rig, and proper configuration of your equipment. A little extra clearance and travel is everything with a Land Rover.

The grill looks like it was retrofitted from a Wrangler, or is this some off the wall Defender grill I've not seen before?
