1997 D90 Soft Top 1 Owner

A friend reached out to me today saying a customer of his wants to sell their 1 owner NAS 1997 D90 soft top. I haven't laid my eye on it yet, but plan to in the next week. It is located in Charlotte, NC and has resided there since 1997.

Just wanted to put this out there in case there is anyone looking. The facts I know now are below and I will be helping the seller put up a formal for sale ad once it is cleaned up.

1997 Soft Top British Racing Green
Around 100K miles-Odometer is broken per usual on 97's
One Owner
Stock condition, no mods
Looks to be in great shape-I will know more when I see it
New BFG all terrains

PM me with any initial interest. I will know more soon!

Especially if it resolves a TMU. Would it?

I thought all 97’s were automatic SW’s. Guess not?

I read on a non-Rover forum that North Hollywood Speedo changed ownership a few years ago, and some have had customer service issues. 'sounds like they may have more business than they're staffed for. Anyone have any recent experience?

Good to know. For a '97 speedo? What was your turn-around time (I need mine done)?

Great! And I do need a new bezel; I dinged mine up pretty bad attempting to do the repair in the past.
