This 1984 Land Rover Defender D130 was fully restored to be an awesome off-roader that also can coddle you in leather-wrapped luxury. So you can look like the ultimate 4x4 outdoors machine from the comfort of your A/C interior.
This Defender came from a company called The Landrovers in the UK. With a name like this, you know they are out to build something special. It starts with the unique look of the D130 model. We got a few Defenders in the USA, but none of them were this distinct pickup truck. And because there's only about 2,700 miles on this since its full restoration, it's not only unique, but also exceptionally sharp. Keswick Green paint is a great name to have on a quintessential British off-roader. But while it has the kind of green that can blend in with nature, the shine also lets it get respect on Main Street, too. And we especially love the well-integrated and well-coordinated way the upgrades are both functional and attractive. For example, the LED headlights and taillights have a modern and clear look while also illuminating the trail better. And it's particularly impressive how the 18-inch wheels, side steps, and full exterior roll cage are all finished in a matching dark sliver. The bed has liner paint, and there's even a little hint of use so no one can accuse this truck of being a trailer queen. Instead, the Warn winch on the front helps pull the lesser machines out of trouble.
The interior takes the ruggedness you love in a Land Rover and then adds a ton of custom luxury. Supple leather in a diamond pattern will make you think this is a Range Rover. And the saddle brown is not only used for the seats, but also the door panels, dash, headliner, and steering wheel. And speaking of the wheel, the right-hand drive reminds you that these were never meant for us, and it only makes a bold Land Rover like this stand out even further. This has more upgraded comfort, including a cup holder center console and an AM/FM/CD touchscreen infotainment system with equalizer and Bluetooth. There's even dual-zone air conditioning, which is handy, because you also have a proper back seat for bringing everyone along for the adventure.
Under the hood is Rover's long-standing robust powerhouse: the 3.5-liter V8. We have a photo file that shows you the frame-up work of this build, including comprehensive time spent with this fuel-injected powerhouse. That's why it starts and runs like a new car. Plus, the robust reputation means you can move this truck with authority. In fact, the four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over it all. Plus, the high ground clearance, the two-speed transfer case, and Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires assures that you can keep going even when the trail ends. And power steering and power brakes with front discs are the kind of useful features that are welcomed on or off-road.
Complete with restoration photos, this is distinction and ability wrapped in a show-worthy package. So if you're looking for something that's all-around awesome, call today!
