The Defender nameplate officially appeared on a Land Rover in 1983, but by that time it was just a re-naming of the hugely popular and capable Land Rover Series of off-roaders. In production until 2012, with the new variant entering the market in 2020, the original Defender has a cult following all over the world, and is renowned for its legendary off-road prowess and go-anywhere attitude. Finding a pristine Defender is surprisingly hard since owners know what they have and aren’t likely to easily part with them. If you’re looking for one, this 1993 Land Rover Defender 110 RHD could fit the bill to a tee. It’s a right-hand-drive example with a healthy 146,000 miles done since new, but that’s nothing for a well-maintained Defender as this appears to be.
The original Defender’s design changed very little over its production run. Why mess with something that works well? This 1993 Land Rover Defender 110 RHD showcases that utilitarian and no-nonsense silhouette in a fitting green paintwork, rolling on black wheels wrapped in reportedly new 30-inch Renegade tires. A new Frontrunner slimline roof rack augments the cargo carrying capacity, accessed by a Frontrunner ladder, and a set of 6-inch KC LED lights at the front of the roof rack enhance nighttime driving experiences. There’s under-cover storage on offer as well. Venture aboard, and it’s quickly apparent that a Defender is not meant to be a luxury vehicle that cossets you in leather and fine finishes, but something that can take a rough-and-tumble life, which the gray interior on this car is testament to. Nevertheless, you do get rubber carpets, gray cloth seats, reportedly new air conditioning unit and a touchscreen Kenwood head unit. The interior appears to be in good nick, save for some light surface rust that can easily be addressed.
This 1993 Land Rover Defender 110 RHD is powered by the sturdy 200Tdi 2.5L turbocharged in-line four-cylinder diesel engine. It was rated at 109hp and 188lb-ft when new, and sends drive to all four wheels via a LT77S five-speed manual transmission and two speed high/low transfer case with locking center differential. There’s a new gas tank and radiator reported, and it’s said to have undergone a recent service.
