The Land Rover Defender had an amazing run. From 1983 to 2016, the Defender became an icon among an iconic marque and helped launch a new era for the company. While production ended in 2016, exports to the North American market ended in 1997. The Defender 90 pictured here is the very last one built to Land Rover's North American Specification, signaling the end of an era and making this one of the most desirable Land Rovers on the market. Showing only 36,000 miles from new, this Defender is painted Willow Green with accessories like a sleeper roof rack, ladder, front brush guard, and winch. Inside are grey twill vinyl seats and rugs, and an automatic transmission and air conditioning have been added. A piece of Land Rover history, this NAS Defender 90, #300 of 300 in 1997, will cross the block at Gooding & Co.'s Scottsdale, Arizona auction.
