1997 Defender 90: SOLD

The last year of the Land Rover Defender 90 in the U.S. is arguably the best vintage of this vehicle. The aluminum-bodied Defender was introduced in 1994 and after a hiatus for 1996, it was brought back in 1997 for a final hurrah. Fewer than 7,000 were brought over to North America during the final 3 years of production. All ’97 models had the upgraded and cleaner-burning 4.0L V-8.  Also new to the Defender for 1997 was the electronically operated ZF four-speed automatic transmission; no manual was offered that model year.  Ours also comes equipped with the rare option of factory A/C.

We sold this one to a very good client of ours a few years ago and we just got it back.  Inspected and ready to go just like our other Defenders, this one needs nothing with well over $7,000 spent on recent maintenance and service.  That list includes:

·         Safety Inspection

·         Replaced Drivers Seat Frame

·         Repaired various worn interior trim pieces

·         Replaced all 4 shocks

·         Bulbs

·         Roll Bar Light

·         Replaced Wipers

·         Rebuilt front calipers

·         Pack bearings

·         New Front Pads and Rotors

·         O2 Sensor

·         Front and Rear Sway Bar

·         Replaced Alternator

·         Replaced Tailpipe

·         Replaced Hood Prop rod

Many consider the Defender 90 the last of the “real” Land Rovers with their short wheelbase, solid axles, and mountain goat ability. Add to that an automatic transmission AND factory Air Conditioning and you have the basis for a purpose-built trail rig that is chock-full of character.

Call today to add this one to your fleet and to inquire on our other hand-picked and fully sorted line of unique vehicles.
