One of my clients got the very last Defender 90 to be sold in South Africa... I needed lots of tissues! Absolutely beautiful... Check it:

R100K above list price, so the retro look is not exactly free :yikes:

Likely the last Defender built to be sold in South Africa, there is apparently still stock :biggrin:

My cousin has a nice one, see below. Of course many of us drove them in the army too.
