Whether it be Moab National Park or New York City’s concrete jungle, our overland vehicles for sale have got you covered.

“American Edition”

For our discerning clients looking for a modern power plant and drive train Classic Overland offers a meticulous restoration with the choice of a GM LS3 petrol engine or a Cummins 2.8 Turbo diesel. Our rebuilds are full off-chassis restorations with new undercarriage infrastructure, soundproofing, and suspension. The exterior body is immaculately redone with modern paint finishes that offer depth and character, while the interior offers a multitude of high-end fabrics and styling with the latest entertainment technologies. Our team at Classic Overland has been building and restoring Land Rover Defenders since their inception. We are keenly aware of where our competitors cut corners in the restoration process. You can be 100% confident that we prefer to go the extra mile to ensure our builds are the very best.
