1986 Land Rover Defender 110 Built By Method SV

Asking Price




“This exhaustive restoration represents Method SV’s most meticulously built Defender to date with over 1500 hours logged in the process. Our mission was to infuse modern drivability while retaining the nostalgia and off-pavement prowess that established the Defender as an automotive icon. The engine bay packs a potent 403HP 6.2L L92 crate engine mated to a 6-speed automatic. The body sits atop a galvanized and powder-coated chassis replete with powder-coated suspension components and zinc-plated hardware. The interior has been updated to include a modern Puma dash and 7 passenger leather seating.” – Method SV
