With the arrival of the latest generation Defender, so did a massive debate. Some appreciated the new Defender and its technology, but most fans were quick to say that the true essence of what made this vehicle legendary had died. As we all know, the defender, including this early edition 1991 model, is iconic for its ruggedness, but the Defender 90, being the two-door version with a shorter wheelbase, is specially designed to offer excellent off-road capabilities. If you want to own an iconic piece of British automobile history, this 1991 Defender 90 is for you.
The Defender 90's body was made of lightweight aluminum and featured a removable hardtop, making it ideal for outdoor adventures. This specific model comes with a removable soft top similar to the color of its olive-green exterior paint. It also features a pair of Fire and Ice side steps, Channel Defender doors, black intake vents, an LED light kit, a locking fuel cap, and a front bumper hosting a SMITTYBILT XRC performance winch. The vehicle sits on powder-coated white wheels wrapped in off-road tires. The 1991 Land Rover Defender 90's interior was designed with a utilitarian focus, reflecting its rugged nature and off-road capabilities. The Defender 90 had a simple and functional interior layout, but this example got some upgrades. With aluminum dash vents, an LT77 aluminum shift knob set, a VDO instrument cluster inclusive of add-ons, a black lock cubby for the center, and a touch screen Sony infotainment system that connects to alpine speakers, one would say that this 1991 Land Rover Defender 90 is perfectly suited to modern-day requirements.
While the 1991 Land Rover Defender 90 came originally with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, the current owner decided that this example would do better with a little extra power and swapped the original motor with a 4.0L V6 engine with just around 1,800 miles on it.
