1997 Defender 90 Dakar project with 1,278 miles for sale in France

Looks interesting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Seller states that the Defender is a NAS D90 and is able to be imported because it has US emissions compliance. A photo of the compliance card with emissions can be provided. Seller is actually in the US so he can also assist with delivery.

Seller's Description:
1997 Defender 90 race truck. This D90 was taken off the line at Solihull early 1997 and sent to France for the project "Trophee des Gentlemen" for the Paris-Dakar 1998, the car received an external roll cage, buckets seats, front skid plate, bracing on front and rear axles and double shocks all around. After BMW bought LR the project was scrapped, so the car was sold to a Corsican dealer and my boss bought it 4 years ago, used it a bit, did few shows, had an article in 4WD lmags and that's it. The A/C was removed, it needs rear rubber mat and few bits and pieces, as you can see it still has original decals and BF-G's as well. So it's a 1997 model, 4.0L V8, auto, come with soft top and LR hard-top.

This car has never been registered and has 1278 miles on the clock. I have more photos of the VIN and the manufacturer which says that it comply with US laws and EPA and I would like to offer I would like to price it FOB port in France to make my bosses life easy, but can make any arrangements as needed to incise a buyer.

Saw this, wonder what the price is? Would be sweeter if it still had the badge # plaque.

Also glad Defender90forsale.com is back up!

I doubt it ever had the badge / plaque, as from my understanding they were installed over here.

oops, link added.

Yeah, good to see he's finally doing some work again!

I want it. Maybe I just need some stickers for my truck. Maybe a hood black out with Horsey's face.

Why doesn't the spare have the raised white lettering as well?

Is that the way they came from the factory. 4 mounted with the letters on the outside and 1 on the inside.

I am probably looking at this too closely but it annoys me when owners don't pay attention to the little details..

maybe. But I just dont understand why people who have an exposed spare dont care if it matches the other 4 tires. If you look at one of the pics it shows the inside of the tire and there is not white lettering there either.

I don't understand anyone who would put white lettering on the outside. having a non matching spare makes you cool though.

Maybe he is leaving room for a drop! The new owner will think they got a great deal!

That seems really cheap for a 1200 mile 97 D90, let alone one with the story this one has.
