Land Rover 90 Defender V8 50th Anniversary
Classic Rebuild latest project. Since our inception in 2015 with a stock of 3 Defender, LR Motors has rapidly grown to become the country's most prominent used Defender retailer. Having successfully stocked and sold almost every limited edition Defender: from the SVX to the Adventure, Heritage to the Autobiography, one model has alluded us until now. The Defender 50th Anniversary was a celebration of how far the marque had come in the half century since its own creation. We feel S727AAP is our celebration of how far we too have come. The Defender 50th which was essentially a NAS (North American Spec) Defender 90. It was powered by a 190 hp (140 kW) 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine and was the first Land Rover outside North America to be fitted with an automatic transmission. Air conditioning made them very comfortable vehicles. For the UK and Europe they were painted Atlantis Blue, a dark green-blue flip colour, and had a safety devices roll-over protection cage for the front seat occupants. In total 1071 50th anniversary Defenders were built; 385 for the UK home market, the rest for Japan, Europe and the Middle East. S727AAP is Build No:202 of 385 and has received an in-house complete nut and bolt restoration. The chassis has been retained to maintain the heritage but has been protected whilst off the vehicle. The engine and transmission has been completely rebuilt using only the highest quality components. We have built a complete new stainless steel exhaust system to exuberant the sound of this exceptional powertrain. Where the original parts are no longer available, we have commissioned the items to be remade to exacting standard. An example of this is the carpet. A complete new set has been created one off for this vehicle. The vehicle has received a complete disassembly and entire body inside and out has been resprayed in the exceptional Atlantis Blue. The vehicle was then built back up with all new suspension, brakes, brake lines, fuel system and all new bushings. It has its original freestyle 16" wheels and all terrain tyres. This rare vehicle (only 132 on the road in the UK) is supplied with its entire service and MOT history, owners manuals, heritage certification, documentation of our restoration process which has been completed entirely by LR Motors. It will also come with two keys with one years service, MOT and fully comprehensive warranty. Delivery and shipping can be arranged. The vehicle has received no modifications from factory spec. This is the finest example to be brought to the market in recent times and will stand strong for its next owner to use daily or place into a collection. We look forward to sharing this build with you and answering any questions you may have.
