If you’re looking for an old SUV, you’ve undoubtedly considered Land Rover. While many old SUV enthusiasts fear Land Rovers for reliability concerns, those undeterred by stories of problems and issues will want to check Autotrader, as there are a lot of exciting Land Rovers listed for sale. I’ve rounded up five of the best older Land Rover models for you to check out.
The "North American Specification" Land Rover Defender models are the most desirable factory-built Land Rovers in existence, and the 1993 NAS 110 is the most desirable of them all. Sold just for one year and made in very small numbers (535 total for all of North America), the NAS 110 is especially rare. This particular model has traveled just 45,000 miles from new, and now it’s offered by Formula 1 Imports in Charlotte, North Carolina, for $139,995.
The first-generation Range Rover, known as the Classic, is starting to become valuable — especially in nice condition. This 1993 Range Rover is in fantastic shape, with a well-kept interior and exterior that’s rarely seen in this model. This Range Rover is offered by a private seller in Houston, where it’s listed for $20,000 — a figure that would’ve seemed unthinkable for the Range Rover Classic just a few years ago, though it’s now completely reasonable given the recent increase in demand.
This Land Rover Defender started life as a 1994 North American Specification Defender 90, but then it was modified — as many of them are. It ended up as a stretched Defender 130, built by a speciality shop to seat nine people, undoubtedly through a customer’s specification. It’s been retrofitted with an automatic transmission and a larger 4.6-liter V8, among other upgrades, and it’s offered by Miller Motorcars in Greenwich, Connecticut, for $129,990.
Early examples of the Land Rover Discovery are starting to find new interest in the car world, as the Discovery was a no-nonsense off-roader SUV with classic Land Rover styling. This Discovery is a nice 1995 model with some off-roading upgrades, including a roll-out roof canopy, and it’s traveled just 108,000 miles from new — not bad for a 24-year-old SUV. It’s listed for $11,900 by AP Vintage Motors in Statesville, North Carolina.
This Land Rover Defender Pickup is a special vehicle, as it’s a modified version of a 1997 North American Specification Land Rover Defender 90, converted into a pickup truck. Offered by Rolf’s Inc. in Summit, New Jersey, near New York City, this is a 4-door truck with a lot of impressive cosmetic and mechanical upgrades over a standard Defender, and it’s currently listed for $129,995.
