1995 Land Rover Defender 90 Hard Top Station Wagon #23 of 500!

This is an extremely rare vehicle! #23 of 500 imported to the United States. Hard top station wagon Defender 90 with ram bar, roll bar, Hella fog lights, 4 fold down seats in the rear. Vehicle was restored and may feature aftermarket interior and exterior items (fog lights, air vents, etc...)

The vehicle was completely repainted the original color, and the interior was actually in fairly decent shape so it was cleaned thoroughly. The ram bar and roll bar, side steps, etc... were completely refinished with black powder coat to give them the same look they would have had when it was new. HELLA fog lights were added, as the original ones were badly damaged and rusted and needed to be removed.

Link to listing below.

EDIT* was changed to better reflect the current state of the vehicle. It is fully restored, but as pointed out by another forum member, does feature some pieces that are not original to the vehicle in the state we found it.

Yet the description fails to list this as THE Highly Desirable Configuration of the NAS Defender.

It's extremely desirable. Trust me, this thing is a beast. As far as the description goes, I'm kinda locked in with what it lists, but it's definitely a beautiful rover, and in great shape given how it looked before we got it.

what did it look like before you got it? You must have done a lot of work to it, it looks great!

Faded/worn out paint, the black on the roll bar and brush guard was nearly gray, tires were bald, no fog lights, old ones were broken, dirty interior.

We repainted it, put new powder coating on the brush guard, roll bar, and other black exterior features, new tires, new fog lights, cleaned the interior near spotlessly got new air vents and floor mats, and completely disassembled the engine to clean it. They probably did more than that, just what I've seen here and there. Runs and shifts really good, and the rear seats are awesome!

I've only been here for two months, but they've had this thing here for quite a while restoring it and just got it ready for sale now, so they definitely took their time making sure it was done right!

I've heard that 3.9L is a real power house!

It really is a beautiful engine. To be honest, at least where I live and the company is located (northeast PA), I have yet to see another Defender, hard top, soft top or other wise.

But on a more serious note, do you know what they replaced the AC vents with? The ones on either side of the shifter are not stock, but they do fit. Just curious.

Not sure, I know the seats were pretty grungy before we cleaned em though, look good as new now, and really comfortable, don't have any sort of sag in them or wear, we don't believe they were used prior to us having the car, and if they were, they were used very lightly.

The rover had no A/C vents when we received it. We did business with a British company, Atlantic British Ltd., to get the closest thing possible to the originals, since we didn't have much to go by. They also supplied the floor mats as well.

They look like RRC vents.

Ray - the seat bars in the rear fold inwards not outwards ... looks like a nice truck and is my personal favorite configuration. Good luck with the sale!

Yeah I think you're right - that's what I was thinking once I blew up the photo a bit, since they have some curves to them.

10 posts later... "yes, we refinished it. And... well... the PAF pickups are reproductions but..."

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice truck, but why go to a forum that focuses on this model (that is also filled with incredibly knowledgeable people) and pull the used car salesman bit? Just shoot straight. If it's not all original, don't say that it is. Pointing out the facts (warts and all) might even get the truck sold faster because people won't sit around wondering what else you failed to mention.

IMO, YMMV, etc.

My apologies if the description is misleading, the Land Rover is not 100% original and it was restored from a state of disrepair and neglect. I'll edit my above post to better reflect that.

Haven't heard of them. Do they carry many parts for a Defender? Good experience overall?

They seemed fairly knowledgable, they were able to find a really close fit for a lot of parts for the rover with just the VIN number, even if they weren't the exact item that would be on it, as a lot of them aren't even made anymore.
