Don't see these too much in the states
1974 they stopped making them , resumed in 1993 but then the regs in 1998 requiring airbags up front, door beams etc, proved too costly for the small numbers being sold here. I will tell you, theres no fewer than 6 defender 110 diesels on my block alone. They're a ten pence a dozen.

The question about people not being surprised is that the Defenders that are coming out of England are complete pieces of crap. They are ones that are cobbled together to drive the RoRo port and sold to Americans because there is a demand for them. There are very few honest importers and even fewer ones who are realistic in pricing.
