THE LAND ROVER DEFENDER

In the long history of the motorcar, very few designs have been as significant, as successful or as long-lived as the Land Rover. It is rightly considered to be one of the landmark cars in automotive history. The Land Rover's engineering was radical and brilliant when it was launched in 1948 but its real significance goes beyond its intrinsic qualities. It lies in what the Land Rover has done for its country: as an export earner, as a linchpin of the post-war British car industry, as a workhorse for Britain's farmers, transport for soldiers and anyone with a sense of adventure. The Land Rover has carried people to the most remote corners of the globe, and brought them back safely again.

Production of the model now known as the Defender began in 1983 as the Land Rover 110, a name which reflected the 110-inch wheelbase. The Land Rover 90, with 93-inch wheelbase, and Land Rover 127, with, yes, a 127-inch wheelbase, soon followed. This period saw Land Rover market the utility Land Rover as a private recreational vehicle, while the basic pick-up, 4x4 and van versions were still working vehicles. Later, the switch from leaf to coil spring suspension was a key part of the new model's success. It offered improved off-road ability, load capacity, handling, and ride comfort for city use. In 2015, Bonhams sold the 2,000,000th Land Rover Defender produced, a Defender 90, for charity - the car sold for a record GBP 400,000.00 (USD 600,480.00), marking the impact the Defender has had on post WWII car culture.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is a highly original and well-preserved example of the classic Defender 90. The new Land Rover was completed at the UK based Land Rover factory in February of 1995, and specified for the US market with the 3.9-liter V8 engine. The car was finished in Portofino Red, just as it appears today. The new Defender 90 is believed to have been delivered to a first owner in the Boston, MA area, and would according to the CARFAX remain on the East Coast until 2015. Just two previous owners are recorded, and with 15,783 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing, the Land Rover remains in excellent and well cared-for condition.
