Got A Question?
Let's see how we can answer it
Curious about Land Rover restorations? We’re the experts. Take a look at how we build your defender while you’re here…
Can I get a brand new Land Rover Defender from overseas?
Unfortunately, no. In order to legally import a Defender into the U.S., it must be at least 25 years old, according to U.S. Law. There are a lot of competitors who try and cheat this system putting their clients at serious risk of losing their investment.
Why are Defenders so expensive?
It’s basic supply and demand. With so few produced for the U.S. Market and the Defender being the coolest truck on the planet, people pay a lot of money for them. Now some companies charge over $200K for them. We try to keep our Defenders accessible to everyone, with options far below competitors pricing.
Are there any concerning issues with Defenders?
Here are some of the concerns we hear from Defender buyers.
1) Defender owners main concern usually has to do with Rust and corrosion. Fortunately, unlike our competitors who buy their vehicles from the rain-soaked UK, Classic Overland vehicles come from southern Africa which is arid with low humidity.
2) Another concern is noise. At Classic Overland we use Dynamat sound proofing throughout the entire cabin of the truck from top to bottom and front to back.
3) Ride Comfort and performance. At Classic Overland we put in a brand-new suspension to offer a modern ride and feel while replacing the drum brakes with slotted disc brakes to allow better braking when needed.
Are parts available?
Yes. With around 2 million Defenders produced and 70 percent still on the road, parts are still readily available. Most local mechanics find these vehicles easy to work on and when you need help with a part just contact us and we will help you get it.

Classic Overland offers a 12 month or 12,000 mile warranty on all LR Powertrain Defenders.
Classic Overland offers a 24 month or 50,000 mile warranty on all GM Powertrain Defenders.
