Arlyse – Land Rover Defender 90 – 1996

This Land Rover Defender 90 is currently under restoration in our Salisbury, UK workshop. Each project that comes through the Bishop+Rook workshops go through an extensive analysis to determine the best preservation and restoration approach.  We inspect every aspect of the donor vehicle and build a build plan.

For all of our certified Defenders, we perform a Tier I mechanical refresh, which ensures the vehicle will be mechanically reliable and structurally sound for years to come.  Very few Defender traders offer the level of service we are capable of.  When you adopt one of our Defenders you’re getting a well documented vehicle that will give you years of adventures and enjoyment.

For those of you who want to take it to the next level, we offer complete restoration services – both on our shop in England and our two workshops in the Midwest.

Current Build Plan

The current plan is to convert this little D90 Pickup truck to a soft-top beach cruiser, but the more we drive it the more we love the personality.  We will completely rebuild the motor, gearbox, and transfer case.  In addition, our standard builds include a complete mechanical refresh.  How far we take the build is the tough question.

Get Your Restoration or Custom Defender Build Started:

On average, a complete restoration takes between 6-9 months for the Bishop+Rook team to make each Defender factory fresh. We go through an extensive restoration and preservation process that ensures that the vehicles are in like-new condition – without taking them too far where you would be afraid to drive them.  If you’re interested in a build or even a light restoration, please feel free to reach out to us and secure your spot in the build queue.
