Hagerty Garage and Social NY is proud to offer this impeccably maintained North American Spec (NAS) Land Rover Defender 90 Hardtop for sale at our New York facility.
The Land Rover Defender has enjoyed one of the longest production runs in automotive history, and is internationally beloved for its clean, square styling, excellent off road maneuverability and robust old school mechanicals. The North American Spec (NAS) Defender was only sold for the 1994, 1995 and 1997 model years. All 1994 and 1995 models were factory equipped with 5 speed manual transmissions while all 1997 models had automatics. All NAS Defenders are equipped with LT230 full-time 4×4 transfer cases with locking center differentials.
The NAS Defender is an uncommon vehicle in the United States with production for all three model years totaling about 6,500 units. NAS Defender values have remained high, and are expected to rise steadily in the coming years as more collectors shift their attention toward SUVs.

In the Shop:
This particular Defender has just 43k miles and has been with its current owner since 2006. Last month, it received a thorough service at Griffin Motor Sports in Milford, CT that included rebuilding the cooling system and eliminating oil leaks with a new oil pan gasket, front timing cover gasket and front main seal. The oil sump and the oil pump shaft and drive gear were replaced preventatively while they were accessible. Additionally, new sway bar bushings and a rear frame ball joint were installed and the transfer case was serviced. The sole modifications are a custom fabricated 22 gallon metal fuel tank and an aftermarket radio, and the original plastic fuel tank will be included in the sale.
If you’ve been looking for a clean, daily drivable NAS Defender with every issue addressed, you know where to find us.
