WTB 94 0r 95 Soft Top

Yesterday, I found the perfect Defender (in my opinion) on this forum. I started shifting things around in order to contact the owner in order to buy it. Well, I waited too late and someone else was wise enough to jump on it without hesitation. I have been sick over this all day. As a result, I am now in search of a Soft Top Defender.

I am looking for a 94 or 95 Soft Top. I prefer AA Yellow or Arles Blue. I don't want a beat up trail rig because I will be using it as a daily driver.

The closest one to me is in Flowood, Ms and I intend to try to see it soon, but it is not the color I am looking for.

There are a lot of knowledgeable and connected Defender experts on this forum. I would appreciate any and all help in my search. Thanks in advance!!!!!

My only advice is to be ready to pounce as soon as the add pops up. There are hundreds of lurkers on here that aren't even registered and will snipe a D90 that pops up with a phone number to call. I literally watched the classifieds hourly when I was ready to pull the trigger, sounds crazy but you have to move fast. Good luck, one will show up!

I've found myself with too many cars and am considering selling mine. It's a 1994, originally Arles Blue but was resprayed white by the first (and as far as I know, original) owner in Colorado. I was planning to keep it long term and paint it back to Arles, as the interior and inside of the engine bay are still Arles, but I'm working too much and don't have the time. It's lacking A/C but everything else about it is top-notch. Only 26K miles, as rust-free as I've ever seen, new soft top, custom leather seats, charcoal grey Boost wheels with new tires, and has been recently serviced by our local Rover expert (Allan at North Texas British who can tell you more about it). I'm about to hand it over to a local contact to handle a consignment sale for me at $45K. This is my first post about considering a sale, and will likely surprise some of the local guys, but I just don't drive the truck enough to justify locking up the cash at this point. Anyone can message me for more info, and I know I need to take a bunch of photos and gather more details since this is very preliminary. I'll try to get all of that together this weekend.

I know it says pending, but they seem to have volume over there (dealer seller, but still worth watching).

They bought a truck out from under me a few years ago. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Thanks though. Still waiting to hear back from the guy in Cali.
