The natural successor to the original Land Rover series, the Defender was released as the Land Rover Ninety in 1983. While styling was familiar the Defender was given coil springs and a full-time four-wheel drive system, new to the line. The power plants were largely carryovers overs from the original series, offering both a diesel and gas powertrain.
The Car: There is more to this British icon than meet the eye. Under the elegant smooth gloss black paint, lies a truck, a brut even. After disposing of the original frame a galvanized steel Richards Chassis was chosen to serve as the foundation for the new build. The ground up build of this utilitarian beast saw a handful of creature comforts added to make the truck just a little more user-friendly. Fresh from the resto-shop 4x4 stands ready to attack the off-road or the urban jungle. If your life is full of adventure this truck will ensure that your equipment is up to the task.
