An early 1994 genuine besttop surray top with the cut outs for the fake alpine windows. Very rare, not particularly desirable.

What makes it not desirable? I'm guessing the cut outs catch the wind when you drive?

97 Beluga Black. White has been growing on me. I think it shows the lines well. My other LR are Black.

I agree. 94s suck. 95s are way cooler.

Nothing against 94 or 95's. My wife can't drive a manual . She has given me the ok as long as she is able to drive periodically. I thought the 94 Arelis blue was the most rare

It is not undesirable, just nothing special. I had to hedge because "rare" and land rover defender doubles the price/value.

Good point, they may raise the price to 90K based on the rare top

That top was made by CHS (Coventry, Hood and side Screen) in the UK with the original material being made Haartz. It was the same material as the tops for the 1994. The surrey top made by Bestop came all the way out to the tie bars.

Shelby is awesome! Pushing 540hp so you would smoke me based on weight of the pig. I have a CAI and FRRP suspension with Supersnake wheels. I ordered it in early 06' and it was one of the first Shelby's. Hopefully can keep forever. Now I have to find me a D-90!!

No, man can not live by Rover alone. IMO. I have culled my fleet down to under 10 at this point... all types of rides (2 and 4 wheels).
