Overland Classifieds :: 2008 Land Rover Defender 90 SVX

Defender fans, rejoice! Your chance to own a rare bit of Land Rover history has arrived, as this 60th-anniversary edition convertible Defender 90 SVX is up for sale. With a mere 39,000 kilometers on the odometer, a heated front windshield, upgraded stereo, video systems, and a custom suspension system, this SVX has been well cared for by both its previous and current owners.

From the Seller:

The first owner [of this Defender] is the owner of the genuine Land Rover dealership from which the car was originally sold. There were less than 100 of these cars made, and the value is increasing rapidly. The most commonly asked question is, ‘Why am I selling?’ The answer is that I need to make room in my house for a boat. I have six special and unique cars, and I am reluctant to sell this car, but it has to go.”

Ashley Giordano completed a 48,800-kilometer overland journey from Canada to Argentina with her husband, Richard, in their well-loved but antiquated Toyota pickup. On the zig-zag route south, she hiked craggy peaks in the Andes, discovered diverse cultures in 15 different countries, and filled her tummy with spicy ceviche, Baja fish tacos, and Argentinian Malbec. You can usually find Ashley buried in a pile of travel books, poring over maps, or researching wild medicinal plants. Ashley is a co-founder of Women Overlanding the World and crew member of Expedition Overland. You’ll find this Canadian-born couple exploring a different continent in 2021, and sharing their trip every step of the way at Desk to Glory.
