I drove this truck when it was for sale back in 09 but I decided to go with a ST, instead. The guy was willing to let it go for $18k.

Was there a slump in 2009 in D90 prices? Because of the preceding fin crisis, I assume?
I thought 2006 was a good year for D90 prices (for buyers). I was living in Austin, TX that year and I saw: two $22k rust free NAS 94's at local dealerships, $18k 95 NAS ST rust free in the local paper and a $8k 94 NAS Beluga Black ST with a destroyed motor and damaged fender.

ZERO. Waiting for my other one to be picked up by the buyer. And I'll probably be buying another MOD too eventually. Who cares? When you trade a car in at the dealership don't you usually drive away in a new one?!

Katie - I would try to reconcile the milage - I was told by the current seller that it has "a little over 140,000 miles" and the 2009 seller on tab 1 of this thread says 144,000 (5 years ago).

I wouldn't give a crap about the mileage ... It's irrelevant now ... Condition of the truck is far more important. Anyone obsessed by mileage isn't worrying about the right things in a 20year old vehicle.

Agree. My concern is that the seller isn't just withholding information but by clocking he's affirmatively being a bad actor.

It's the difference bt doing something illegal vs something criminal. Just my 2cents

There's nothing to be concerned about, especially for you. It's my truck to be concerned or not be concerned about, to enjoy now and I'll post more details when I'm back from traveling. I think you will like the story when I get to it. take care. Many Thanks for everyone's interesting insight!

I am back! Here is the update on my amazing truck... just to satisfy any confusion. I contacted a local Land Rover dealer and they were able to hook me up with the dealership here in Los Angeles who originally sold the truck. It is a very reputable, upscale Land Rover dealership and was sold to someone in a very pricey area of LA (4 million dollar homes, etc). They took the truck "pre-delivery." It was possibly a special order. It was delivered to the new owner so it never even hit the showroom floor. That could explain the badge. The dealer was very cool and gave me all sorts of information. They had records on it all the way up to 38k miles. Mostly just fixing the recall items. For whatever reason they didn't report to carfax. He says that happens all the time. The truck was most likely delivered to the owner of a high end specialty shop. He obviously couldn't tell me the name of the first owner but indicated I had "Nothing to worry about, absolutely nothing." He kind of chuckled and inferred this truck was owned by someone pretty well-off. Then Carfax starts at 60k miles the first time the truck was required to be smogged in CA. Really in CA that is the only time the mileage is reported, smog checks and title changes. So the truck only had from 38k-60k miles not accounted for which is nothing.

The truck has never been rolled. Pictures are deceiving. The roll bar is not wonky. All body panels match perfectly. All original paint. It's very obvious in person. This is one straight and beautiful, unmolested and original D90! Just some normal scratches and maybe it was keyed once. But it's awesome overall and in incredible shape for a 19 year old vehicle. I couldn't be happier! And after driving a 4 cyl diesel this is quite a change. So much fun!

The truck was sold in 2009 with 144k miles. It now has 148k miles. There is nothing off with the mileage. The man I bought it from is a great guy, practically a neighbor of mine, and owns many classic vehicles. He only put 4k miles on it in 5 years. Everything is documented and this is a CLEAN 90. No rust, no offroading, nada.

As for the light brackets on the roll bar... they seem to be an aftermarket welding job. The truck had some fancy aftermarket lights that were removed. The brackets remain. They weren't Hella lights... they were some other brand.

I am getting it some regular maintenance and a good detail and she is good to go. She already drives like a new car so it can only get better from here. Thanks everyone! Your comments really helped me to do some fun research if only to satisfy the curiosity

Congrats! I am still curious about the badge and front cage. According to fourfold it should be #98 SALDX3281SA976165 '95 SW 98/500 Alpine White http://www.fourfold.org/LR_FAQ/Defender/D90SW.db.1.html Which seems to indicate it was not a prototype or anything like that. Did you figure out anything about why the front cage is different and it has the non-numbered badge? Pre-delivery does not make much sense as they were installed at the latest at the port. I mean if you minded they would be easy to replace with factory, but there has to be a story and it could be interesting.

Not sure about the badge but since the badge off of my BMW has been stolen twice already, there's a chance it was stolen and then replaced with the non-numbered badge. Kids like to pry these things off cars, especially high-end cars, and hang them on their walls. It's a pretty common thing to steal in LA.

Yeah. The front cage is slightly different at the very top. The bend is not quite as small and is like twice as high in terms of thickness of the cage. Take a picture of it next to another 95 SW. I'm sure there are tons in Cali! I'm sure it is nice though.

It's beautiful, unique and highly desirable white 95 SW. Which apart from the 97 LE slush box edition are the rarest model of defenders ...if you exclude POE derivatives.

Congratulations on the acquisition and I wish you many happy miles!

Please tell me the oil cooler lines have been replaced?

+1. This is very, very important. If they fail, the whole thing can go up in smoke. Quickly.

Billy Murray can respond better than me to this... I think for a 20 year old truck in almost completely original condition running well and fully checked out by several Rover specialists, the roll cage which I will probably replace eventually, isn't bothersome for me. We are lucky it's not being used as a planter box right now. Maybe it hit the top of a parking garage and got re-installed wrong. Maybe a previous owner was dyslexic. Maybe it was lifted for a surf rack as a previous owner was a surfer.

Here you go....

YES! Thanks guys. It is getting done right now! It's at the shop as we speak. Another very kind board member alerted me of this a few weeks a go and I am getting it done! Along with a full service and new shocks.
