We are pleased to present this one-of-a-kind 1994 Land Rover Defender 110 updated to 2014 specifications. Starting life as a limited-production North American Specification (NAS) Defender 90, this 1994 example is said to have been purchased as a donor vehicle before it was completely stripped and restored from the ground-up with no-expense-spared. It features a brand-new galvanized chassis as well as the body, interior, and “Puma” turbo diesel engine from a modern 2014 Defender XS. Said to have traveled approximately 37k kilometers (23k miles) since the restoration, this exceptional Land Rover Defender is now being offered for auction by its seller in Boston, MA.
The donor NAS platform was purchased as a salvage vehicle before it was entirely dismantled and fitted with a new galvanized chassis as well an entire body sourced from a 2014 Defender XS. The restoration was completed in 2018 and the factory Santorini Black metallic finish is said to remain in excellent condition with the only noteworthy flaw reported as a bolt hole in the right front fender from a previously installed intake snorkel. An internal/external roll cage by Safety Devices U.K. was installed and this example rides on factory 5-spoke alloy wheels that come dressed in fresh BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires bearing only several hundred miles of use.
Inside, you will find a modern black interior derived from the same 2014 Defender XS. Driver amenities include heated partial leather seats, a heated windshield, power windows, air conditioning, and an aftermarket Pioneer double-din head unit. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.
Power is derived from a 2014 2.2L "Puma" 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine which is said to produce 170 HP and 330 lb.-ft of torque as tuned. All four wheels are driven through a ZF 4HP automatic gearbox by Ashcroft Transmissions in the U.K. The body and drivetrain are said to have only had delivery miles at time of restoration with approxmiately 37k kilometers driven since. A complete fluid service is said to have been carried out very recently and this Defender is reported to be in excellent mechanical order.
This sale is said to include a set of 2 keys with remotes, the original NAS badge, and a branded salvage title. Perhaps the closest you can get to driving a modern 2014 Defender on the road in the U.S., this custom restoration offers a very unique opportunity.
