1997 AA Yellow ST for Sale NYC

It is a sad day deciding to sell my truck. This is just a teaser for anyone looking for a very clean 97 AA Yellow Defender. Some details are below and I WILL TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES THIS WEEKEND AND POST SUNDAY NIGHT. I'm selling it because it's just not practical to have one car in Manhattan and for it to be a defender. I will be buying/leasing a Range Rover and someday when I am in the suburbs, I will acquire another defender.

The Good:

1997 AA Yellow
Basically stock except for headlights and exhuast
75,000 miles
NRP exhaust
Upgraded Headlights
Purchased the car with 63,000 miles right after the 62,500 service
All service records available
Exterior is near mint with 1 or 2 very small dings
Absoultely no visible rust. Undercarriage is spotless, was probably coated in recent history.
Rovers North Soft top
Surrey Top
Car drives perfectly, have not had any issues in past 18 months owning it.
Car has been garaged in NYC since I have owned it.
No accidents clean title.

The Bad or not so good or things that need some love:

Odometer works 80% of the time, some flickering when car gets wet. typical with these trucks
Brakes are about ready for pads, 12-13k miles on them
Rear bench seat has pulled apart in the middle. Not ripped just needs to be glued or re sewn
Rear window on soft top could be replaced or re sewn, the zipper part has come apart slightly.

Most of the stuff is just minor cosmetic things that don't bother me, but for a few hundred bucks could be fixed easily.

I will take pictures of every detail of the truck and have attached a few pics of the car when i purchased it. I will also include the VIN number this weekend.

Price is 35k

Sad to see you selling it. I've seen this rig and it is very clean.

Good luck with the sale.

This will sound lazy but hopefully someone that lives in NYC can back me up on this. Living in NYC its very difficult to get some little issues on a car done. It's damn near impossible to get the car inspected. The only way to do these things is to take off work and get it done during the day. It is very hard to explain what im talking about...if I lived on long island (which i used to) i would drive the car to a mechanic or work on it in my driveway. I don't have those luxuries in the city.

Cliff is right, it is almost impossible to get any work done on the truck. That being said he has been overly meticulous in caring for this truck. It is one of the best looking trucks I have seen in a long time.

That being said, the "Bads" to most of us are still "Goods". Rear seat has a minor pulls, and the pads are slightly worn. To most of us we would let the pads would still be good. They are minor "Bads" to make this truck almost flawless. Underside is amazing too.

Take some shots of the underside and post them up. Order a full set of pads and lets put them in this weekend.

Sorry I'm not trying to bash it. I think my point is still valid. At that price why settle for "almost perfect"? Drop it off somewhere and have the items addressed and then you can sell it with no apologies. If it means taking a day off or showing up late for work one day, I still think it would be worth it.

no bashing taken at all

Charles is right, its a simple fix and the truck would be 99% flawless. Cliff get some pads from AB and we can take care of it this weekend. Call Eric and have him send the pads out today and you should get the package tomorrow.
