WTB: 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 Softtop

Hello,

I'm a cash buyer looking for a 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 soft top. Please send me a PM with your email and a brief description (and price) of the vehicle.

I'm ready to move now. Also, I only will accept a 1997 so don't send me any other years.

Thank you but in my opinion, the first one is absurdly expensive and the second has a bad carfax, horrendous interior, and I know their business practices to be less than scrupulous. I'm looking for a nice original truck in the high 40's or low 50's.

This one is sold.

Fair enough. Based on that, then I'd love to hear your honest opinion on this one as well.

Dude: you post in the wrong section, ask for help then say the vehicles to expensive yet don't say what you willing to go to.
How about a bit more info on your wants?

That truck has been out there for a long time and the price has changed drastically and has been re photoed to look better.

I haven't spoken with the owner but my gut feeling is that there is a reason why it hasn't sold.

Solid budget for a 97 SW.... but as you've said prices for 97 STs have gotten silly so you may get lucky but more than likely need to stretch another 5-10k for a decent ST.

There were no black hard tops. You want a soft top. Some soft top owners elected to purchase fiberglass hard tops, especially in some colder climates like Ohio. Contact the seller... geez

My mistake, I have already inquired about this one and it is, a hardtop.

The seller repainted the truck in black and is not its original color.

Thank you for the link and help, Josh.

It's frustrating as I was sold out on one about a month ago and the second a week ago the person consigning the truck pulled it from the dealer after I had made a deposit, written a purchase agreement, and even had a PPI done.

I just want a truck that isn't astronomically priced...
