In years past, the Defender has been a pretty rare beast, but today it seems like everybody and their brother has a business importing them into the United States. It's quite exiting that you can now simply log onto eBay, and readily find a somewhat affordable Defender. For example, check out this rare double-cab 110 in Boca Raton, Florida without doing much more than clicking a few buttons and putting down a credit card it could be yours. It has a completely redone custom interior and a slew of other upgrades. The shop who imported and built the vehicle is careful to note that it's not a full restoration, but a nice, somewhat affordable Defender. We deffinetly see a few things that need to be changed or replaced, but overall it's a rare find.
Here's what the seller had to say:
OUR DRIVING FORCE IN BUILDING THESE LAND ROVERS IS TO KEEP THE PRICE AFFORDABLE. LAND ROVERS OF THIS QUAD CAB CONFIGURATION ARE SELLING FOR $50,000, $70,000, $125,000.....UP TO $170,000 ON EBAY....LOOK FOR YOURSELF. WE ARE NOWHERE NEAR THAT NUMBER. WE DO NOT SPEND $8,000 FOR PAINT JOBS; WE DO NOT SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS REBUILDING THEM GROUND UP MECHANICALLY. BUT WE START WITH A VERY GOOD PERFORMING TRUCK. AS YOU CAN TELL FROM THE VIDEOS AND STILL PICTURES WE GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO TRANSFORM THESE INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS INTO THE VERY ATTRACTIVE AND UNIQUE PRODUCTS YOU SEE HERE. WE ALSO COMPLETELY REFURBISH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS INCLUDING NEW HEADLAMPS, BUCKETS, DIRECTIONAL SIGNALS, BRAKE LIGHTS AND LICENSE PLATE LIGHT. SOME OF THESE HAVE VERY SMALL RUST ISSUES THAT WE SEEK OUT AND REPAIR, KNOWING THAT THE BODIES ARE ALL ALUMINUM AND THE CHASIS ARE STEEL. THIS WOULD BE ONLY NATURAL FOR A 30-40 YEAR OLD ANYTHING
THIS IS A VERY RARE LAND ROVER 110". IT WAS CUSTOMIZED OVER IN GREAT BRITAIN TO THE QUAD CAB STYLE AND THEY HAVE DONE A VERY RESPECTABLE JOB. IT WAS MY INTENTION TO GET ONE OF THESE RARE SUV'S INTO THE COUNTRY AND WORK OUR MAGIC ON IT. I WAS VERY SURPRISED AT HOW WELL THIS TRUCK RODE AND DROVE COMING RIGHT OFF THE SHIP. AS YOU CAN SEE WE SENT THIS LAND ROVER THROUGH OUR SHOP WITH OUR TEAM OF TECHNICIANS WHICH INCLUDE A VERY GIFTED AND TALENTED UPHOLSTERY DESIGNER (WHO ONLY USES THE BEST MARINE GRADE VINYLS AND CARPETING), AN AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS EXPERT AND OUR MECHANICS TO MAKE THIS THE BEST LOOKING AND DRIVING LAND ROVER WE COULD, WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK IN THE PROCESS, SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO REFURBISH MANY MORE LAND ROVERS TO COME. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE OF THE OTHER $100,000 TRUCKS. I'M SURE THEY ARE QUITE NICE. BUT $35,000 AGAINST $100,000......DO I HAVE TO SAY MUCH MORE. RATHER THAN SECOND GUESS THE PERSONAL PREFERENCES OF THE END USER, WE CHOOSE TO LEAVE THE ORIGINAL TIRES, WHEELS AND NO SOUND SYSTEM ON THESE TRUCKS. THIS IS TO ALLOW YOU TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR LAND ROVER TO YOUR LIKING.
I'M SURE MANY OF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE QUESTIONS. PLEASE CALL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR OFFERS. I REMIND YOU, THIS 25 YEAR OLD TECHNOLOGY WILL REQUIRE MAINTENANCE AND TWEEKING. DON'T EXPECT TO HAVE A MAINTENANCE FREE "NEW CAR" EXPERIENCE ...AND WORKING ON THESE OLD CLASICS IS HALF THE FUN. THANKS FOR LOOKING! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WOULD LIKE A MORE IN-DEPTH DESCRIPTION PLEASE CALL ME, EARL
