1986 Land Rover Defender 130 Description:

Vehicle Original VIN : SALLDHAC7BA252281
Osprey Custom 4x4, world-renowned builders of custom vehicles, proudly present their latest triumph — this handsomely rugged 1986 Land Rover Defender 130 Hi-Capacity Pickup – a classic British four-door truck that’s tough enough to handle any off-road excursions or towing you plan to do and has an extended bed!
This well-crafted build is powered by a vigorous 6.2L Corvette LS3 V8 mated to a precise-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission with a PCS® push-button gear selector with LED display. The heavy-duty LT230 transfer case, equipped with a center differential lock, ensures that all four wheels receive maximum power from its 430+ horsepower and 425+ pound-feet of torque. Praised by AutoBlog as "unquestionably good", this powertrain effortlessly conquers any terrain. Additionally, the vehicle boasts updated front and rear disc brakes, ensuring quiet, safe, swift, and efficient stops.
The upgraded, heavy-duty front and rear axles are located by slightly elevated Fox Racing® 2.0 shocks and springs, Terrafirma® caster-corrected front and cranked rear radius arms, track rod, drag link, and Terrafirma® steering damper, all protected by a heavy-duty aluminum front skid plate. It rides on bold, gloss black 18-inch “Sawtooth” alloy wheels wrapped with 275/70R18 Goodyear® Wrangler Territory® MT (Maximum Traction) tires — a hybrid on- and off-road tire with an open tread design that helps clear mud from the tire and provides superb traction even when the pavement ends.
The body, expertly finished in deep Santorini Black Metallic with color-matched wheel arches and trim, was meticulously reassembled with the chassis after being treated at our in-house body and paint facility. Black powder-coated Terrafirma® rock sliders with integrated tree bars help protect the lower body, while Optimill® black anodized aluminum exterior door handles complement the Optimill® black billet aluminum door, bonnet, and windscreen hinges, enhancing the vehicle's stealthy appearance.
The front end received special attention with a color-matched premium grille, light surrounds, side intake, and forced-air wing top vents. For modern and precise illumination, LED headlamps with smoked marker, turn, reverse, and tail lamps have been thoughtfully installed. The impressive front is completed with a satin black powder-coated slim-line bumper featuring two integrated LED daytime running lamps.
Assisting with ingress and egress to the well-appointed passenger cabin are Optimill® black aluminum exterior mirrors with LED puddle lamps and AMP Research® power-operated side steps. Inside, the cabin features a modern-style, PUMA-spec, black leather-wrapped dash that provides excellent heating and air conditioning, ensuring comfort throughout the year. The heated front sport seats are upholstered in Autobiography®-spec Black micro-perforated leather, as are the three flat-folding, high-back second-row seats.
The twin-panel moonroof, equipped with separate sunshades, floods the cockpit with natural light, accentuating the beautiful piano-black finish center dash binnacle that encloses the infotainment system. The system features an Alpine® double-DIN touch-screen head unit with navigation, Bluetooth®, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay®, and a backup camera. The audio experience is complemented by a crisp-sounding Rockford Fosgate® silk-dome speaker array, including a subwoofer. Adding a touch of elegance, the interior features a black leather-wrapped Moto-Lita® sport steering wheel with polished aluminum spokes, billet aluminum-trimmed gauges and HVAC vents, as well as Optimill® billet aluminum HVAC control knobs, door handles, door pulls, and door lock escutcheons.
A leather-wrapped custom center console provides a convenient storage cubby, a wireless charger for your mobile devices, and two oversized aluminum cup holders, and there's an additional compartment on the top of the dash for smaller items. The front windscreen is heated for those extra-brisk mornings, while the headliner is swathed in Charcoal Alcantara, adding a final layer of luxury. Even with its sophisticated features, this truck is still up for some hard work, as heavy-duty rubber floor mats protect the fully carpeted front and rear footwells. For added security and convenience, the vehicle includes power front and rear windows, as well as a Viper® keyless entry system with remote starting.
