Offroader – Land Rover Defender 90 – 1990

Adventure Ready

Full details coming soon.


NOTE: This Defender has recently been adopted and is being prepared to send to her new family.  We usually have similar vehicles in stock in our US and UK facilities.  Feel free to reach out and inquire.

UPDATED NOTE: This Defender was sold several years ago and was very much a project vehicle.  While it was a fair price at the time, anything 2022 and beyond is unlikely to see Defender pricing in this range again – unless it is a very large project.

Recently (mildly) refreshed and ready for your next adventure.  This vintage Land Rover Defender was imported from the UK and shipped to our shop in Minnesota where we underwent a refresh process to ensure she was road worthy and ready for a new life in America.  This is fun example of a Land Rover Defender with original motor and chassis. It passed both EPA and DOT inspection, with Homeland Security approving of her import to the United States.


This could be a daily driver, but will need a little bit of polish to get it there.  It’s not perfect.  Keep this in mind as you look for a Defender.  This would be great for someone with mild mechanical skills (or ability to learn).  We will happily walk you through the details via Facetime or via a phone call.  We do have other inventory available as well should you need something different.

Orange G4 Tribute – Defender 90

We’ve had this project sitting in the back of the shop for over a year. When we moved her to our current location she wouldn’t start after a blown turbo hose (it collapsed internally) and we couldn’t figure it out – because it wasn’t visible to the eye.  As a result she was pushed in the back and forgotten about.  When we finally sorted the issue, we had moved on to several other projects and this one kept being pushed back.  She deserves a fun home.  We’ve loved driving her around and wish we had more time.  Photos were taken in April 2020 during the  lock down.

What’s Next

Before she goes to her new home, we plan on doing some general maintenance to help the new owners out.  A few of the door hinges need adjusting, a few bolts have been poorly put in place, the seat belt brackets will be re-attached. Essentially, it came to us as a project someone else barely put back together.  We’ve put quite a bit of effort into making her tidy so far, but will need a little love to bring her to her full potential. It would make a great off-road truck as it is, but could serve as a base for someone who wanted to get an affordable Defender project they could drive while they slowly refreshed it.  As an older 2.5L Turbo Diesel, she does have the typical light smoke upon start-up, but does clear and pulls really strong.
