In 1994 Land Rover North America imported approximately 1,943 Defender 90’s into the U.S (another 87 went to our Canadian friends). The majority were soft top versions, in either a full soft top or a “fastback” half soft top configuration. These stateside trucks were quite different from their European cousins (collectively called ROW trucks for “rest of world”).
In addition to all being left-hand drive, the U.S. version Defender 90 had added safety equipment and a different powertrain option, a 3.9L fuel injected V8 for 1994 and 1995 and a 4.0 EFI V8 for 1997 rather than a diesel engine. Those 7000 or so U.S. legal Defenders became known as the North American Specification (NAS) trucks, each badged and numbered on the right rear panels. They were outfitted with additional safety features to meet U.S. restrictions such as an internal roll cage and 4-wheel disc brakes. It is for these reasons, mainly the limited entry, that NAS trucks bring a market premium above a comparable ROW truck. They may look identical even to the well-trained eye, but the NAS trucks will always hold a special place in Land Rover history.
