For Sale via our Commonwealth Classics Partnership 

We are always thinking of new ways to bring our classics closer to the people that love them most. By partnering with like-minded businesses we can do just that. As so many petrol heads do these days, we met scrolling each others feeds on Instagram admiring the universal language of cars. 

Bill, owner of Commonwealth Classics, and Sam, founder of Samuel Lloyd & Co, spent a good 12 months bouncing ideas back and forth across the Atlantic pond. Being in Europe we are fortunate to be at the epicentre of British and European classic cars, however the one thing we lack is the platform to show off these awesome cars to US buyers. 

Thats where Commonwealth Classics step in. The partnership sees a selection of Samuel Lloyd & Co’s inventory (The A-List) head stateside to be titled and displayed for sale in Commonwealth Classics Virginia showroom. We share a mutual interest in bringing classic cars to a global stage and this partnership aims to further build on this. 

The price you see for any of our Commonwealth Classics Partnership cars is for a US titled fully legally imported vehicle. 

History of the Land Rover

The Land Rover Series range was launched in 1948 and the model, now known as the Defender, was launched in 1983 and the continuous run finished in January 2016, after 67 years. Land Rovers were inspired by the US-built Willys Jeep immediately after the war and by 1992 they claimed that 70% of all the vehicles they had ever built were still in use. The Defender and Series ranges have had unique international presence throughout the production run, having been exported, manufactured and produced under licence by a number of other manufacturers in a variety of markets, to include Australia, Southern and North Africa, Turkey, Brazil, Pakistan and Malaysia, to name just a few.  In 1993 Land Rover decided to take the plunge into the US market after their successful launch of the Range Rover brand in 1987 in order to offer an upmarket alternative to the Jeep Wrangler targeted at adventurous buyers. Land Rover finally had to retract their offering from the North American and Canadian markets in 1997 due to economic viability. The Defenders offered in the US during the 90’s had to be significantly modified in comparison to Land Rover’s other export markets. Subsequent federal safety regulation amendments finally withdrew the Defender from the US market entirely in 1997, with Land Rover throwing their attention towards upmarket Discovery and Range Rover models that were being built from the ground up.

The Car

This vehicle certainly needs no introduction. Being one of the well-admired models in the Defender range, this 1994 built D90 300 TDI, has amassed a reputation in the Land Rover world as one of the most reliable and dependable engines Land Rover have ever built. So much so that demand from the likes of the MOD, NATO, and non-EU civilian sales, meant that this engine continued production up until 2006.

Having been first registered in France on 22nd August 1994. It went on to spent the majority of his life just inland from Montpelier in the south of France in a town called Saint-Leger-de-Peyre Just off the A75. We repatriated the vehicle back to the United Kingdom earlier in the year and set about carrying out the sympathetic refurbishment of the vehicle to correct overlooked maintenance whilst having respect for the vehicle's unquestionable originality.

AN UPDATE FROM THE TEAM
 

We are here and open for business

These are truly extraordinary times. Although we’re not as raring to go as usual, we still remain open, with shipping line's continuing to run, although at a reduced frequency. 

  Keeping our distance 

 Fortunately we are a small team and geographically spread. The team are largely working from home with the exception of our independent mechanics who are able to continue to work safely. 

 What does this mean for YOU

 We continue to operate and send out vehicles globally on a monthly basis. Our ability to prepare a vehicle to a client's specification is somewhat stifled. Although our mechanics are doing their very best, to meet smaller requests.

  Fast Moving Cars 

 AKA lockdown project. 

We’ve been working hard over recent months to gather a collection of "FAST MOVING CARS". These are rolling projects, although not perfect, they are ideal for first time importers giving a taste of what English classics have to offer.  

  Fighting fit in no time

 We are confident that we will come through this stronger and we wish safety and good health to everyone and their families. 

We are only a call, email or text away so please don’t hesitate.
