It’s basic supply and demand. With so few produced for the U.S. Market and the Defender being the coolest car on the planet, people pay a lot of money for them. Now some companies charge over $100K for them. We try to keep our Defenders accessible to everyone, with options far below competitors pricing.
The typical complaints from Defender owners usually have to do with Rust and Erosion. Fortunately, unlike our our competitors who buy their vehicles from the rain soaked UK, Classic Overland vehicles come from southern Africa which is arid with low humidity. Furthermore, as a company policy we do not buy vehicles with a lot of rust, but if there are minor signs of corrosion we repair it with new metal.

No, Classic Overland does not offer any warranty of any kind on the vehicles we sell. However, we work very hard at restoring these timeless classics and getting them in excellent working order both aesthetically and mechanically.
