Autotrader Find: 1993 Land Rover Defender 130 Pickup Truck

The Land Rover Defender has always been a cool SUV — but this particular Land Rover takes things a step further. This is a 1993 Land Rover Defender that isn’t a regular 2-door Defender 90 or a 4-door Defender 110, but rather it’s a Defender 130. That’s a crew-cab pickup truck.

The 130 is the rarest body style of the Land Rover Defender, and it’s an impressive one — renowned for its capabilities, since it can haul both people and stuff. The problem is that it’s virtually impossible to find one in good shape, since most Defender 130 models were used hard as work trucks for two decades before they were legally allowed to be imported to North America.

This one, however, is pretty nice — with an undercarriage photo included to show that rust is minimal. It’s finished in orange, and it’s a left-hand drive model, which makes it especially rare. It’s also V8-powered, which is good news since a smaller engine would have trouble moving such a large truck. It’s also traveled less than 75,000 miles, which is a rare figure.

This particular Defender 130 is special indeed, and the ad notes that it was legally imported, meaning it’ll come with the proper paperwork to title it in nearly all U.S. states. It’s currently offered by a private seller in Orangevale, California, near Sacramento, for $54,998. Find a Land Rover Defender for sale
