THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

When Land Rover brought the "NAS" Defender to the U.S. for the 1993 model-year, they did it through their existing Range Rover dealerships. Land-Rover and the newly formed Land Rover North America (LRNA) had new models coming to the USA, and to draw attention to the brand, they produced a limited run of 500 Defender 110s. They were imported to be an "image car," and the launching point for the new Defender 90 and Discovery line in North America that followed from 1994 onwards.

Strikingly presented in the vivid 'AA' livery, this color choice by the marque harks back to their earliest days when a number of Land Rovers were used by the two main road assistance company/services in the UK, the Automobile Association (A.A.) and the Royal Automobile Club (R.A.C.). The former elected to paint their vehicles a rich yellow tone, while the latter were sky blue.

This example has been appreciated so much by its current owner that he and his family have owned it not once, but twice, being purchased first from the original owner in 1998/9, and then having sold it in 2010, some seller's remorse led to its reacquisition in 2017! In keeping with his mantra for owning all eras of motor cars and maintaining them in ready to use order, a figure in excess of $20,000 has been invested in the 4 years since this automobile's reacquisition. This has included fitting of 4 new, correct, BFG All Terrain TA K02 tires; new heater core; replacement of all major belts and hoses; new windshield and seals; new fuel pump, thermostat, and, water-pump; new distributor cap, rotor, plugs, and, wires; new steering damper; as well as a new OEM exhaust. Work carried out during the former period of the same owner's custody included details such as the new top; rock sliders; custom billet door hinges with stainless hardware to prevent rust stains; new catalytic converters; and fitment of the 4 Hella "Black Magic" lights mounted to roll cage.

As someone who has known it well for much of its existence, the seller has described the Land Rover as a 'super clean, well sorted, and corrosion free example - ready for reliable use on or off road.' It benefits from being built in ideal spec: AA yellow, first year of production, improved R380 manual transmission, and soft top.
