“I am proud to place up for sale a very rare and unique ex mod land rover defender 90. Only a handful of these were produced with a turret hatch. I believe this is the only one in the states. I could be wrong. But when was the last time you saw a landy 90 with a turret hatch bombing it down the highway? I have been driving it around where I live (bryan, texas) and it drives real nice. Smooth diesel 2.5 and the lt77 gearbox shifts very well. Everything works as it should. For a 25 year old defender this has to be one of the best frames that I have seen in a long time. No splitting of metal and everything looks solid. I also like the fact its fully original and nothing has been coated to hide any imperfections and problems. I think you know what I mean? When sellers spray 500 layers of undercoating to hide any problem areas. Slight scrape to the passenger side door skin. If push comes to shove I can replace the door. All doors do look great inside. No bad rusting. I was thinking of repainting the Rover but I think it looks great as it does. Just released from the middle east. This is pretty much as I received it from the MOD. A very nice, sold and super rare defender. It is RHD from factory. My daily driver here in TX is a RHD 90 and its never really bothered me, however you can convert over to a LHD. Each to their own.
Also if you really hate the turret just remove it and convert to a soft top. Exmoor trim have some great conversion kits.
This Rover comes with a new clean and clear texas vehicle title.”
Every time the guy mentioned turret my mind kept going to the torch things on the side of the vehicle and thoughts of skulls, rat rods or the Munster Koach. As it was, there was a rerun of American Pickers on last night where they visited Barris Kustoms in California. Barris built the car for the Musters show. On quick perusal of his site, I can honestly say I don’t care for 90% of his designs but this one below is pretty cool.
