1997 NAS D90 soft top Beluga Black

1997 Defender NAS soft top #0605 208K miles. $32,000, no trades.

Posting this here and ExPo to see if anyone is interested or knows someone serious before I take some glamor shots and post on eBay.

This has been my buddy's daily driver for around ten years. He searched hard for a specific vehicle and found this in Oregon then slowly transformed it in to a trail conquering daily driver. He is now moving on to another project, allowing someone else to own this beauty.

This has no rust and runs great. The owner wouldn't hesitate to jump in it and drive to Moab or the Rubicon. It has been regularly serviced exclusively by myself, West Coast Rovers and Inland Rovers. Trans and Transfer case have been replaced as well as many other components. Land Rover basket rack (not attached), snorkel (not connected to air cleaner), rear bench seat and other bits come with the vehicle. Here's a list of modifications we could come up with....

Safari Gard Gear:

Front Bumper
Rear Bumper
Rock Sliders
Tire Carrier
Front & Rear Shock Mounts
Droop Kit
Rear Bumperettes

Great Basin Rovers Gear:
Thrust Bolted Front & Rear Diffs with 4:10 Gearing & ARB Lockers
Front & Rear Drive Shafts

Rovertym Gear:
Rear Trailing Arms
3" Springs

Inland Rover Gear:
Front Radius Arms
A-Arm Ball Joint converted to adjustable Heim Joint

Others:
Badger Coachworks top with gutter kit (1 year old)
35" BFG KM2
Fox Reservoir adjustable shocks with 12" travel
Warn XD9000 winch

Price is firm. Tuffy Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or additional photos.

By far the best color. Does the owner still have the A/C, or was it removed and sold off? I thought just about all of the 1997s came with it. This shouldn't take long to sell. Good luck!!

If he removed it, the compressor will still be there. Wondering about its condition.

AC was an option in 1997. Those without it still had the compressor. Believe it or not.

Because it is a serp belt set up and you need the compressor to run the belt.

Had AC, long gone. But I'm sure it could be re-fitted.
Talked with an interested party who would like more of a stock unit. Easily removed items including Roof Rack with supports may be available. Contact via e-mail is best.

Love the roof rack. Is that oem/SD? If it is not available, does anyone know if they are sold anywhere?

I live the truck too! What soft top is that? Looks like a badger II but I didn't think you could zip out the rear windows? GLWTS.
