1997 Land Rover Defender V8 for Sale

Hey guys,

I am putting up my 1997 Land Rover Defender V8 for sale. It is in great condition and only has 56,000 km. The truck is located in Toronto, Canada - however, the VIN is SALDV3241VA128682 so it may be importable into the US. Please see below for full description and pics:

Asking price $50,000.

See prior thread: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=52131

The pictures you use were taken by pacific coast auto in Japan. If this vehicle is not yet in North America, registered etc, suggest you wait on the sale until you have title with you name on it. Do not lose any of the importing documents or give them up to the government agency.

Rocky,

Thanks for that - the vehicle is in Toronto already, registered, and is under my insurance. I am traveling for work right now, but will be back this week to pick it up and put new winter tires on it and put the licence plate on it. I wanted to put it out there in original form before I modded it and offended any purists.

For sale already? That was quick. For what's it's worth I think the full discussion on whether or not it can be imported here is in the other thread.

Rijosho,

I would ideally like the truck in gray / silver. However, I paid a premium for the green and kind of over-extended myself. It's a rare color so I don't want to ruin this be repainting it (nor do I think I could afford to haha). I would ideally like to sell this one, and then try to find another truck in white (which tend to cost less) and paint it in the color I want. I live in Canada, so it is more lenient on which Defenders you can bring into the country here.

Guys,

Did the following to the truck:
- Replaced front brake rotors
- Serviced calipers, replaced front brake pads
- Serviced rear brakes
- Restored original dash board
- Put in new CD player / radio
- Replaced steering damper
- Replaced serpentine belt
- Replaced rocker cover gaskets
- Put on new winter tires

And then I realized how sweet it is, and that I can't sell it, so it's off the market haha. What I am going to do next is retrim the seats (front and back) in leather / half leather and install seat heaters on the front seats. Hope it serves me well
