At Classic Overland, we believe that if you make the investment to own a vintage Defender then you should be able to drive it on a daily basis. No expense is spared in building these vehicles from the ground up, with the very best parts to handle whatever elements you choose to drive them in. Whether it be Moab National Park or New York City’s concrete jungle, we’ve got you covered.

GM’s latest LT1 engine, a 6.2 liter V8 behemoth producing 455 hp coupled to a best in class 10-speed automatic transmission. What could possibly top that, well we are glad you asked because you can upgrade to the optional 6.2 liter LT4 producing over 650 hp.
