Classic Overland Tusker Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon

We do very little to hide the fact that we love Land Rovers here at The Coolector and there are a handful of workshops who restore these behemoths that sit at our top table. At the head of the table, perhaps, is Classic Overland and that’s because of extraordinary builds like this Tusker Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon.

The Classic Overland Tusker Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon comes in a muted and stealthy Corris Grey colourway and is the perfect overlanding vehicle for any wilderness adventures afoot. The guys at Classic Overland take classic Land Rovers and transform them into the adventuring vehicles of your dreams. They also customise each one with the spirit of an African animal – just to add that extra dose of wildness to proceedings and their Tusker is one of their most beastly brilliant one to date.

Wilderness Ready Machine

Africa’s “big tusker” elephants, which are so-called because of their huge tusks that each weighs in excess of 50kg and reaches almost to the ground serve as the inspiration. Ever since the Magnificent Seven was first named in the 1970’s, Kruger’s elephants with large tusks have been a source of awe and inspiration around the world. While many of Africa’s elephant populations have seen the genes of their largest tuskers depleted by ivory hunting and poaching, Kruger’s legends live on and is the perfect muse for such an uncompromising machine as this.

The Classic Overland Tusker Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon has a price tag of $165k which, considering how much work has gone into its rejuvenation, represents a great deal in our opinion here at Coolector HQ. It is powered by a GM LS3 engine and this 495HP beast has a six-speed automatic transmission for the ultimate in off-roading machines.

There are an awful lot of impressive features to the Tusker from Classic Overland which help set it apart from the competition. Some of the most striking of these include the Maxxis Bighorn Oversized Tires, African Leather with Diamond Stitching Seating, a Kenwood/Garmin 7” LCD entertainment system w/ Reverse Camera and JBL-6 Way w/ Sub-woofer Speakers. The Tusker is the ultimate in Land Rover restorations and another feather in the cap of Classic Overland.
