As you may be aware, NAS Defender 90 models sold in the U.S. market only in 1994, 1995 and 1997 years. All 1994 and 1995 NAS Defender 90 had 3.9L V8 paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Only 1997 model year had 4.0L V8 paired with an automatic transmission and it was the last year of Defender 90 in the U.S. This is the main reason why 1997 NAS Defender 90 models are the most valuable to collectors and Defender enthusiasts. This is your chance to own a collectable NAS Defender 90 with low mileage!
