I don't, but if you look through the Defender sightings thread there was a pic of a sweet 4 door ST posted a few weeks back. It was posted with about 10+ pics of other Defenders.

Check with d90boy. I recall his FIL having one but may have sold it by now.

I have imported a bunch (30-40) of them & there seem to always be a few @ the port when I'm up @ Baltimore.
Last one I handled came from a surplus dealer in Antwerp. He repainted the truck white and put a new tan canvas on it.
Looked pretty sharp.

Yeah are we talking soft top or cabrio? Because there's about an $80-100k difference.

This one is hot aside from the wheels. Sounds like a fair price too. I almost got one of these instead of the D90... almost.

That's a great question. I'm not very familiar with them and saw a picture of one I liked. Let me see if I can find it again.

Hang tight and thanks for the feedback boys!

The 460 and 461 chassis trucks rust so bad they make Defenders look like there made of stainless steel the na diesels are even slower than the LR na's the m110 6 cylinder trucks( 280GE) are ok for power but still suffer from terrible rust look very carefully before you pull the trigger.Been working on these for 35 years.

How does one find out what's legal and what's not??? Why wouldn't these all be legal? Emissions?

they "could be legal" if they were built before [i think] march of 2006. after that the cert ran out i believe. so anything post that is:
* bootleg
* revin
* dissembled and rebuilt
