Paradise Classics
1989 Land Rover Defender
We brought this Land Rover 90 from Germany. Prior to that, it spent time in the Netherlands. The frame was undercoated a long time ago, which kept it in really great shape. The bulkhead is great too. Since it's the County version, it has fancy cloth seats. Van sides were put over the window cutouts in the back. You can leave it as a van, or switch back to windows as you'd prefer. The bottoms of the door frames do have some rust, and the rear door does have some rust, and is from a Series Land Rover.
The engine runs great, and the transmission shifts nice. It has new tires on Wolf style wheels, which really help with the no-nonsense look.
Since it arrived, we did an oil change, replaced the battery, and replaced the rear shocks with new Bilstein units.

This cool little 90 is headed down to Texas.
Sorry, this one already went to a new home, but if you check our current inventory, I bet you'll find something else that you'll like.
