'94 D90 ST in NC on RN's Classifieds

http://www.roversnorth.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8274

No affiliation. This D90 has the LT77 but it only has 23k original miles and appears to be rust free (really!). Spoke with the owner (real nice guy) and it was originally prepared by the dealer with the rear roll bar, side bars and rear seat removed as the guy and his wife were just looking for a 2 seater. The owner sent some pics my way and I couldn't believe how rust free this one appears to be- almost museum quality. I'm being pretty particular (probably an idiot) in my search and want an R380- but I thought I'd pass this one along as it looks like a nice one.

Yep- that's what I was thinking. I'm probably a lot nicer than some folks- but I didn't have the heart to low ball them because it was missing the cage/full soft top; I get the sense that they are a nice, no-nonsense couple, possibly retired. I hope some friggin' dealer doesn't swoop in and take advantage of them; someone here who doesn't mind the LT77 and roll bar/top config should buy this one. Check out these pics:

If they are the original owners, I wonder why they had the belt rail kit added if they did not want the rear cage. The only reason to add a belt rail kit to a '94 was to be able to use the improved full soft top. Did they say if the rear section of the cage was available?

They said the rear cage was removed at the dealership. Maybe it's for some sort of toneau (sp?) cover. I've pretty much covered everything I know- check out the add and shoot them an email- they can probably explain it better than me.

Hard to take advantage of someone who is selling a truck for almost what they paid for it back in 1994!

If you look real close at the picture of the truck on the RN Board, you can see the Bow for the fastback softtop attached at the back of the B-pillar (see pic below). It uses the belt rail as well and doesn't require the rear cage.

P.S.- And before anyone asks, here's what a fastback top looks like.

Well low ball the shit out of them- and jack it back up then Ebay it! Just posted this in case someone was interested; don't have any interest in the sale of this Rover, really!

Cool- thanks Will. Hadn't seen this configuration before. Thanks for teaching me something new!

I am not a big fan of the fast back, I just looks incomplete... maybe it would grow on me, but I would be looking for a cage if I brought it home.

I've been wondering how hard it would be to come across one. If a salvage yard had a D90 chances are it has been burnt or rolled- either way I would think the roll bar would be ruined.

Has anyone ever seen a 1994 tickford style fastback? I thought they existed, but now I am not so sure.

Cage Sawp - Difficulty?

Searched for this before posting. I know this exists but couldn't find it. Any major snags known for swapping a 94 Defender full cage onto this partial fastback cage? I'd probably be in for this if I could do that.

Thx,

Ben

It just adds-on, no swapping of any kind. You just need the rear hoop and the cantrails.
