This Custom Land Rover Defender Pickup Is Vintage Truck Perfection


March 23, 2020 Cars By

Virginia-based Commonwealth Classics produces some of the most exquisite resto-modded Land Rover Defenders we’ve seen. Their latest build, the Georgetown, is a drool-worthy Defender 110 single cab pickup, and it’s currently available on their website.

The Georgetown is a 1990 single-cab Defender 110 that was initially a farm truck in Spain. Each Commonwealth Classics Defender undergoes a complete frame-off four-to-six month restoration by Portuguese restorers Unique Masterpiece, with every part of the process done in-house, except for leather wrapping and canvas dying. Unique Masterpieces repainted this beauty charcoal gray, and outfitted it with a black leather interior.

This Defender truck uses a 200Tdi turbodiesel engine, connected to a five-speed manual transmission. Modifications from the original truck include air conditioning, added sound deadening throughout the cab, a quieter AlliSport variable geometry turbo, a short-shifter, a bespoke Marshall inset Bluetooth speaker, a rear tonneau cover and Bilstein shocks and springs.

As one would expect, such fine craftsmanship comes at a premium. The Georgetown is on sale for $155,000. If that’s a touch steep for your blood, or you’d like something a little different, the starting price for a custom Commonwealth Classics Defender 90 is $125,000 and $135,000 for a Defender 110.
