The North American Specification (NAS) 90 was Land Rover's attempt to enter the Jeep market. Based on the Defender 90, the NAS version was modified to suit the US market and stringent safety legislation.
The NAS 90 was fitted with 3.9 litre V8 engine from Range Rover and had front protection bars, swing-away spare wheel carrier, extra lamps and reclining bucket seats.
The NAS 90 was available for two years, 1994 and 1995, during which nearly 3,000 cars were sold. Each car was identified with a special plate recording the build number. The NAS 90 was offered again in 1997, this time fitted with automatic transmission and air conditioning.
This particular car was kept back in case of warranty disputes and later used for emissions testing.
