A creation by Osprey Custom Cars of Wilmington NC, this one-of-a-kind 1994 Land Rover Defender 90 underwent a complete body-off restoration including a new interior, upgraded LED lighting, a high-end sound system, heavy-duty running gear, and a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine borrowed from a Chevrolet Corvette. Completed in November of 2022 and issued a new title for an Osprey Custom Defender with less than 500 miles driven since, this Defender 90 is now being offered for auction out of Texas.
The body and frame were separated during the custom restoration and the chassis received a hot-dipped galvanization treatment. New body panels, glass, weatherstripping, and gaskets were installed, and the car was finished in the current Black PPG paint color. Accessories include a removable black soft top, an external roll cage, a front push bar with an integrated winch, a skid plate, Masai side steps, LED headlights and taillamps, LED-illuminated black anodized aluminum exterior door handles, and a black anodized aluminum bonnet with matching door and windscreen hinges. It rides on black-painted 16” Land Rover wheels dressed in Dick Cepek Trail Country EXP offroad tires.
The cabin received a new bulkhead with an upgraded modern-style dashboard along with all-new upholstery and carpeting. Accessories include a high-resolution 11” widescreen LCD instrument cluster, an Atoto and Rockford Fosgate infotainment system, dimmable LED ambient lighting, a modern gear selector, a Viper 2-way security and remote start system, and a custom sound system with a subwoofer.
This Defender 90 has been equipped with a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 crate engine rated at 435 HP and 445 lb.-ft of torque. All four wheels are driven through a 6-speed 6L80E automatic transmission with a heavy-duty LT230 transfer case. Other features include custom headers and dual performance exhaust, a Griffith aluminum radiator, dual PermaCool electric cooling fans, double cardan front and rear driveshafts, heavy-duty axles and CV joints, new transmission cooler lines, and stainless-steel lines for the brakes, oil cooler, and fuel system. The vehicle received a new 2022 title upon completion by Osprey Custom Cars and is accompanied by a 12-month factory warranty.
This sale will include a clean title for a 2022 Osprey Custom Defender.
