Land Rovers are known as the first car that reached most of the developing parts of the world. It's a well-earned reputation where these go-anywhere vehicles have rarely met an obstacle they couldn't overcome. And this 1994 Defender 90 showcases this fearless attitude the best. More than just look tough, this V8 4x4 has been outfitted with all the right equipment to climb every mountain and blaze new trails.
The Defender 90 follows the grand tradition of tough-as-nails Land Rovers, and you recognize it from the moment this one comes into view. It looks ready to take on the toughest terrain with the full roll cage, steel plated fenders, and folding side steps. Even in the deepest wilderness, lighting will never be a problem thanks to the dual Hella lights mounted on the thick steel bull bar. There's even a 10,000 lbs Husky winch on the bumper to pull you up a mountain or get much larger friends out of trouble. And that snorkel mounted high on the windshield means your pants will get wet crossing a river before this one breathes in the water. But even with all of this tough 4x4 prowess, Land Rover gives you a reminder of its premium side, too. The full set of 16-inch alloys (including the spare on the rear) are the same you could get on the Range Rover of the time.
Being in the driver's seat will always feel like a safari, even if you're in downtown traffic. The bimini top provides coverage from the rain and the sun, and in the more intense conditions, the full tonneau can make whatever you need weathertight. But this cool 4x4 was meant to be one with nature. Waterproof seating, locking tool boxes, and thick rubber matting will make sure that when anything gets inside, it stays secure and cleans up in a snap. Plus, this is far from a bare bones operation. You have an AM/FM/CD stereo tucked away in locking center console; there's full heat/defrost controls; and you even have a place to secure your air tank (more on that in a moment.) And if you do decide that you want to keep the outside at bay, there is a metal frame and side windows that come with the sale, too.
The 3.9-liter fuel-injected V8 is a strong runner that was born in the USA and honed for generations at Land Rover. And because it has been around for decades, parts accessibility is as globally available as this 4x4. This motor looks like it has been well maintained, so it's ready for its next adventure. Plus, the high ground clearance, the two-speed transfer case, and BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain tires makes sure that you can keep going even when the trail ends. And that air tank is part of a full ARB locking hub kit (front and rear) that keeps you moving forward when others had to drop out long ago. But there's more to this than just all-out off-road dominance. The control of the five-speed manual transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes make this a lively vehicle for a night on the town.
Complete with maintenance records, this Land Rover is the last of a fearless breed. So when you can find one that's so well prepared and so well cared for, then you know you need to act fast. Call today!!!
