This 1991 Land Rover Defender is unique in all the best ways. It
has the color theme you want in a classic SUV, but as you dig into
this fully restored 4x4, you'll discover some terrific modern
features. This includes turbodiesel power, an A/C interior, full
back seats, and other pieces that keep this capable while also
being extremely distinctive.
The paint is called Heritage Green, and you know exactly why. When
you close your eyes and picture the original Land Rover Series
vehicles, this is the color you imagine. It really looks like a
terrific classic with the clean iconic lines, color-matched steel
wheel, and the white roof and grille giving you a hint of two-tone.
The reason why this one looks so good is that it was given a full
frame-off in Italy before being imported to the USA in 2019. So
it's quite a fresh and detailed presentation. And it lets you know
it's a more modern machine in subtle but useful ways. This includes
the full LED lighting package, a proper trailer hitch on the rear,
and modern off-road tires.
The restoration also means a well-done interior. You have high-back
bucket seats up front, a cup holder center console in-between, and
even an upgrade to cold-blowing air conditioning. But while this
one is comfortable, it also never loses that rugged Land Rover
feel. The robust rubber floor, meaty steering wheel, and a dash
with cubbies for your tools all remind you that this one is built
for stout use. And that's handy no matter if you're working on the
farm or coming from a day at the beach. One of the most interesting
parts of this Defender is in the rear. Where you often see facing
jump seats, this one has two proper bucket seats with shoulder
belts. It's a true Land Rover feature, and they both fold out of
the way so that you can have the center open for cargo. So you
still get a versatile rear with a wide-swinging door, but now it's
more accommodating for passengers.
The 2.5-liter turbodiesel under the hood is a powerhouse that was
never offered in the USA, but when you want the best in torque, you
know it's the one you want. It only gets better when the motor was
part of the full restoration investment. This powerplant has earned
a tough-as-nails reputation from the Scottish Highlands to
Gibraltar, and because this has been a long-standing British motor,
the parts are also widely available. The five-speed manual
transmission is the ideal pairing to give you full control over the
diesel power. The high ground clearance and two-speed 4x4 transfer
case assure that you can keep going even when the trail ends. But
there's more to this Defender. The power steering, power brakes,
and front discs remind you that go-anywhere also means being easy
to drive down Main Street.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, restoration
photos, and BMIHT certificate. This is where iconic style meets the
best in modern 4x4 prowess. So if you want to do it all, and look
unique while doing it, you need this Defender. Call today!!!
