Back in 1983 two old friends and travelling buddies met and found a common bond with a love of Land Rover Defenders while travelling through Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. They worked in Zambia in the 80’s at numerous safari camps and wildlife reserves. Accessing some of Africa’s remotest areas it was here that they found out how capable and tough these trucks were. While working in the Middle East, they followed the pursuit of 4×4 backcountry adventures. They even spent some time in the Northern Territory of Australia, exclusively using Defenders to access the Outback. Maintaining some of the most hardest to get to tracks and dirt roads, the conditions were brutal and these trucks brushed off everything that was thrown at them with ease. The 2 friends joined forces to create the Transatlantic Trading Company (TATC) to share their passion and to build the best Land Rover Defenders possible in the US. TATC draws upon their combined experience, coupled with over 70 years of Land Rover heritage. The TATC team lovingly restores some of the very best iconic Defenders available. The mission at TATC is to build these trucks better than they were when they first left the factory, and most importantly to last the next 25 years and to pass on to the next generation.
Our 1993 Land Rover Defender was fully restored, down to the chassis. Our left-hand drive Land Rover Defender 110 underwent a full restoration by UK based TATC, which was completed in late 2020. The exterior is finished in Corris Grey. There are less than 2,500 miles on the fully rebuilt and reconditioned Turner engineering 200 TDI, Ashcroft transmission and transfer box. This Defender received major upgrades, both mechanical and esthetic. Our TATC Defender comes equipped with Front Runner Slimline II Half Rack, a Front Bumper A-Bar, ARB V2 Intensity LED SpotLights, new updated performance clutch, and the desirable Xmore upgraded leather seats! In addition to those upgrades our Defender 110 also has the updated Hybrid Turbo Technics bespoke performance turbocharger.
