The Vehicle Story
This particular One Ten came from a friend of ours in the UK. He restores a few cars each year and we adopt them from him. This was a case of a vehicle he found that needed to be kept in as original condition as possible. He sent us some photos and we jumped on a plane go go check it out. She spent most of her life in a dry climate, with at least a good part (if not all) of her years living in Port de Pollença, Mallorca, España (Spain). We were afraid to detail her because the smell of her original interior was so good.

INTRO TO BISHOP+ROOK
Bishop+Rook is a Minneapolis-based importer and restorer of classic Land Rover Defenders. We are passionate about film, photography, travel, adventures, and vintage cars. We finally found a way to combine our life’s passion into helping others find their dream car. We restore the vehicles to an adventure-tested stage – not over-restored and not over-priced. We simply want to share our love an passion for these amazing vehicles with like-minded people.
We price our vehicles fairly. Any profit we make is turned back into our creative projects or seeking out our next restoration. Any work we do is to ensure people can enjoy the vehicles right away – we make sure they are adventure ready on day one.
We typically have about a dozen or so Defenders in stock, but for those looking for something truly unique we offer a service to find and import cars with specific requirements. Drop us a note and let us know what you would like.
We’re sure you have many questions. We try our best to answer anything and everything that comes our way, even if you decide not to do business with us. We simply love these vehicles. If you’re just starting your search, we wrote a little piece that may help you sort through the many models, conditions, and prices you may see on the marketplace. There are a lot of people importing Defenders these days, some really good guys, and a few others that might not have your best interest in mind.
