The 110 NAS was a special American-market model meant to whet the appetite of Land Rover buyers in the U.S. The 110 North American Specification model was effectively a fully loaded, long-wheelbase, four-door Defender with an external roll cage, roof rack with basket, brush guards, and a 3.9-liter V8 paired with a five-speed manual transmission. It even has air conditioning, which was by no means a common option in the home country. Just 500 of these were sent to the U.S., and all were finished in a white exterior color. The NAS vehicles were also the first examples of the Defender model (after the Series Land Rovers) to be modified to U.S. market specifications from the factory, which until that time had been left to various gray-market importers.
After the initial run of 110s in 1993, Land Rover introduced the Defender 90 in the States, now available in a greater variety of colors. But they were sold for just a few years, with Land Rover pulling them from sale in 1997. This meant that the total number of NAS Defenders in the U.S. (and Canada) was more or less locked for some time, until the earliest European-spec Defenders began hitting the 25-year mark and became eligible for importation. But this fact did not dilute the values and demand for NAS models, especially the white 110s.

The following condition report, while thorough, is not exhaustive as vintage cars have inherent wear and imperfections. We welcome personal inspections.
