1997 D90 Convertible in CT, fair price, any interest?

Hello all,
Well after a many years with her, I'm thinking about selling, while I do not need to sell, if I can get my number, I should sell to someone that will love the truck. We all know D90's need TLC, and as a full time musician, IT worker and father, I just can't keep up with what this special truck will need over the next few years. So.... I have a 1997 BRG D90, you can see a pic on my profile.

Here is the good and the bad...

1997 Defender 90, it has 3 tops (Hard on it now, a new soft top - never used, and a new surrey)

- I am the second owner, it has 128,000 miles, I bought it with 103,000, previous owner used it on
highways mostly
- Always serviced by Dawson at Classic 4x4 in Fairfield CT, he is THE man and knows the trucks,
he also waxoiled the frame
- Upgraded with Nato steel black rims, snorkel (not hooked to engine only hood up), old man EMU
suspension (there is no spare tire or carrier)
- chassis was wax oiled
- Runs and drives good with the following issues: ( I try to always be 100% honest and am a certified AAG auto appriaser, as well as loving cars and bikes)

1. Check Engine light on- had it scanned, reads misfire, but runs mint, I would have this resolved if we can
work a deal, but I am 95% sure it is plugs and wires, but like I said, I can rebate or discount accordingly
2. Parking brake warning light flickers, bad contact or sensor some where somewhere
3. Minimal oxidation except on side steps, they are toast and I would remove if you are tall enough to get
in, or put a new set on ($400)
4. Gas gauge reads lower than real life - don't all Rovers ?
5. Odometer is an LCD, it flickers, reads crazy, when damp outside, but it is original
6. 2 small dents (size of quarter on the alumium body), a few light scuffs, but shows really really well
7. Custom stereo, 2 amps, Infiniti speakers, Optima battery, but left channel intermittent, probably the
Clarion head unit
8. Seats are GREAT no rips, interior is pretty awesome, one square hole cut by shifter that housed an
alarm, no alarm in truck anymore
9. With 128k miles, you will hear some ticking in valves until oil circulates, (15 seconds), Dawson noted
that while it runs good, he suggested a 4.6 engine swap down the line and this is a great idea if
someone wanted to really finish it off well.
10. I used this as a daily driver to work, 10 miles each way and it runs awesome !!


Again, reluctant to sell, really hope a D90 forum owner or enthusiast goes for this, while I am not a huge eBay fan, I will list this weekend unless someone here wants first crack at it.

Finally, I would like in the area of $24,000 but feel free to call me to chat, look at the truck, and make me an offer I can't refuse.

Thanks !!

Jan

#2: Parking Brake warning light flickers: Sometimes this is just because you are a little low on brake fluid, check the reservoir and top it off. Hopefully that will solve that one.

Or it's the switch (which is on the lever I think).

yes, the new owner realized it would be difficult to commute long distances in it, so check it out, plus the new owner is a cool person as well !!
