These days, virtually every heritage Land Rover Defender that you see has an interesting story to tell, whether it be a number of nostalgic decades driving on its favorite backroads or a sheltered life where pristine garages and weekly detailing are commonplace. The same can be said for this 1990 Land Rover Defender 110 — a passion project between Commonwealth Classics and Portugal’s Unique Masterpieces.

After spending a gratuitous number of hours pounding out specific details surrounding the build, the pair would eventually come to terms with the 110’s current iteration. Below its hood, a fully-rebuilt 200Tdi four-cylinder turbo diesel and 5-speed LT77 manual transmission have been implemented alongside a new, uprated intercooler and short shift mechanism, providing drivers with a modern powertrain to take on any on- or off-road endeavor. Its beautiful charcoal gray exterior arrives courtesy of painstaking frame-off restoration, accenting the vehicle’s galvanized trim, Puma hood, and custom tonneau cover. Inside, the 110’s heritage-inspired cockpit has been adorned in premium black leather upholstery, classic checkerboard stitching, and an inlaid Marshall Bluetooth speaker, allowing drivers to enjoy their favorite tunes over the rumble of the truck’s diesel engine. Now, the Defender is available for purchase via Commonwealth’s website for $155,000.

Purchase: $155,000
