Land Rover Defender 90 – 200Tdi / 5-Speed Manual – 1994

This amazing Land Rover Defender 90 has been adopted by the crew at Bishop+Rook.  We would consider trading for human organs, first-born children (or a second born if it turned out better), mysterious hard drives with bitcoin, or other priceless valuables.

We took the van panels off and turned this Defender into a soft-top where we just run a bikini top.  We keep her around the shop for running up to the hardware store and for lunch runs.  Sopris is pretty much part of the family now.

Finally had a chance to take some real photos of Sopris. She is part of the Bishop+Rook family. She started as our development Defender, where we tested new things out on – marine stereo, soft-top kits, wheel packages, etc. But as we continued to have little adventures with her (summer and winter), we realized our little bikini-top clad D90 wasn’t going anywhere soon.

This Defender has 66,000 original miles and drives like a dream.

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.
