Try to imagine a vehicle: sophisticated in style yet mechanically simple. A vehicle preferred by royalty and farmers alike. A vehicle that has carried explorers to the far corners of the world. Surely the only vehicle that comes to mind is the Land Rover.
Owning a vintage Land Rover is in and of itself an adventure, it will engage you as a driver in ways modern cars cannot. It will make you rediscover driving just for the joy of driving, both on and off road. Only a Land Rover can slog down muddy trails and then be driven to the most prestigious social function and not be the least bit out of place in either setting. However, most Land Rovers have already led long and interesting lives and are well past their prime. The good news is that we can take these tired Land Rovers and rebuild them into vehicles that are safe and reliable without sacrificing a single bit of their charm and character.
NAO Series IIA:
It’s more than a vehicle, it’s an experience.
North America Overland offers a restoration package that combines an accurate, true-to-form restoration with improvements to safety, reliability, comfort and longevity. Our goal is to enhance the driving experience and ownership experience while maintaining the Land Rover's original exterior and interior appearance. We call the resulting vehicle the NAO Series IIA.
Automotive technology has come a long way since the 60s and we can take advantage of these improvements without changing the overall character of the vehicle. The NAO Series IIA provides a unique and exciting driving experience both around town and in the country, all while looking neat and composed in any situation. Nobody wants to drive a vehicle with marginal brakes that won't run properly on modern gasoline. We address a long list of inherent issues in a tasteful way, you can rest assured that the NAO Series IIA will blend originality with all the right improvements.
The Best of Both Worlds
The Land Rover Defender has the timeless good looks of the Series but with a more modern drivetrain, suspension and interior. It has always been synonymous with adventure in far off places and is one of the most iconic and sought after 4x4s in the world. We can restore your Defender and upgrade it with modern amenities to enhance your ownership experience. What sets our restorations apart is our uncompromising attention to detail and craftsmanship. Your restored Land Rover will look and drive like it just rolled off the assembly line.
NAO Expedition Package:
Equipped for the demands of back country use.
North America Overland offers a package of off-road equipment specifically tailored to the NAO Series IIA. We call this the NAO Expedition Package. This package has been determined, over years of testing, to allow for improved performance and usability off-road, while maintaining good drivability on-road and keeping weight and complexity to a minimum. The Series Land Rover is well suited for off-road use in factory form, however this package addresses known shortcomings in addition to improving traction, self recovery, cargo management, drivetrain durability as well as body and underbody protection. NAO Expedition Package Land Rovers are painted in NAO Matte Tan, a paint that is scratch resistant so your Land Rover will continue to look great in any setting off-road or on.
