Land Rover NAS Defender 90 ST convertible 4X4




Up for auction is my NAS Defender 90, #1574. I had hoped to keep this car forever, however we have found a house that we'd like to buy and naturally my play toy gets sacrificed (per wife's orders). This Rover had been in an accident back in 2006 and sat in a garage for 6 years when I bought it. The front passenger fender was damaged along with the air conditioning condenser and freon lines. All these items were replaced with new ones. There is no body filler (Bondo) on the car. I then had the entire Rover repainted, only after I removed just about everything off of it (doors, door latches, hinges, full roll cage, all signals and lights, grill, bonnet, tire carrier, tailgate, door rubber seals, etc) so that there would be no overspray (again I hoped to keep it forever and wanted it done right). I re-assembled as much as I could with stainless steel bolts (door hinges, bonnet hinges, front grill, headlight surrounds, body to rear crossmember, etc). Then the Rover was wet sanded, compounded, and polished for a nice smooth finish. I replaced all signals with new ones (originals were somewhat cloudy), replace all four wheel spats (originals had become dull). The Rover looks great, and more importantly it runs and drives great. It doesn't shimmy, or pull to one side, etc. The engine is nice and powerful and doesn't smoke, burn oil, etc. the automatic transmission is nice and smooth and shifts as it should. The soft top is in good shape with only one small 1/2" tear at the top of the rear window (could easily be patched if desired, it didn't let in water so I didn't worry about it). The interior is in good shape with no tears on any of the seats, no cracks in the dashboard, etc. It has a nice set of Goodyear tires with loads of tread left (matching spare tire that has never been on the ground). The heat and air-conditioning both work well. I installed a Kenwood stereo because I wanted bluetooth capability, however I will include the original Land Rover stereo with the sale. There is essentially no rust on the frame, bulkhead and rear crossmember. The drivers door has a very small amount on the bottom door frame, the passenger side door has none. The battery box has no rust as well. The original jack, wheel lug wrench, and tools are still there and have never been used. I am embarrassed to say that this Rover has never been off-roading, but I guess that's a good thing. The Defender only has 50,360 original miles on it. When I bought it, like almost all '97 Defenders, the digital odometer would scramble back and forth between jumble and the correct millage. I sent the entire speedometer off to Hollywood Clock and Speedometer Shop, they verified the millage and repaired the digital screen (I have the paperwork documenting this). Please look at the Carfax report to validate this in the state inspection field. Unfortunately when I bought the Rover the business that sold it to me could not read the odometer and they checked "not actual" millage and the Virginia DMV would not make the correction. Feel free to email or call me with questions, my number is 540-598-8331. I welcome and encourage anyone interested to come see/drive it in person before bidding, if you're long distant, I will happily pick you up at the Roanoke Airport. This truly is an awesome Defender, and I hope I have not scared anyone off, but I just want to be forthright in my representing it. ***IMPORTANT: the Warn winch is not included in the auction**** This is a used car and therefore is sold AS-IS. Buyer is responsible for picking up or shipping, however I am happy to drop it off at any local shipping depot. $1000.00 deposit through Paypal at auction end, the balance at pickup.

Despite the minor rust, that looks mighty clean.

Quite a transformation there - checkered history to say the least but for under $30K a shiny 97 ST I'm sure will sell to someone that's seeing the $50K+ asking prices out there.
