Land Rover Defender, 90 and 110 Range, 30 Years of the Coil-Sprung 4×4 models.
Land Rover Defender, 90 and 110 Range – 30 Years of the Coil-Spring 4×4 Models charts the evolution of the coil-sprung Defender vehicles. When Land Rover switched from leaf springs to coil springs for their utility models in 1983, it was a major step forward. The first coil-sprung model, the One Ten, replaced the Series III 109s. The short-wheelbase Ninety replaced the Series III 88s in 1984. From 1990, the models were all re-branded as Land Rover Defenders – 90, 110 and 140 – as the Land Rover range expanded and the marketing teams wanted a new name.
Topics covered include:Â
– Origins of the coil-sprung Land Rovers
