97 Monza Red SW curiosity

Hello Board-

Have read a few references to this particular Wagon and I am intrigued. Seems to be a bit of a romantic story and I like the thought of the rareness of Monza Red on a 97 wagon. Anyway, anybody have any input or recollection as to this Wagon? Thoughts?

Thanks Board!!

That is a lot of $$ for a truck that has been resprayed at least once and still has rust showing on the bulkhead. Both are not the best signs on a $50k truck.

So you will be picking up a second 97 SW? If so, why not get a ST?

Unfortunately not. I sold both the Arles and Portofino Wagons I had a while back. I'm wrapping up a Grand Wagoneer I took an interest in and really miss having a Defender. Of course, it looks like I left some money on the table given what the asking price for a 97 SW is nowadays. I guess hindsight is 20-20....

Anyway, on the lookout for a 97 Wagon, prefer Alpine or Coniston...just to round out the experience you know...

Thank again for the quick replies..

adventure motor cars always seems to have nice 90's, are they are a good place to buy one from? Has anyone had any problems with them?

Stephen is a great defender specialist. The truck you're looking at was the prototype for the 97 station wagon. I'm guessing 1 of 1. Hence the price.

If anyone knows of a good source other than the usual suspects, AT, Ebay, CL, Cars, and of course, the Defender Source...kindly let me know. I'm pretty set on a 97 SW, prefer Coniston or Alpine but would look at red or blue. Mild mods ok as long as I can get it back to roughly original appearance. Under 75k miles, you know, the proverbial needle in a haystack.

I know, easy to find if I'm willing to plunk down 80 grand right!

Thanks Board!

Personally, I am skeptical of how clean their 90's look. Buffed and shined to the max, that is for sure. I wouldnt buy one without an in person inspection.

That 97 you cited at adventuremotorcars is not really "rare". Its a 97 SW, and there are plenty of them.


The only truly rare NAS D90s that I can think of are the Hella ones. Or Horseys rhinolined edition.

HelloBubba's is a really good deal. You could return it fairly close to stock with almost no mechanical skills needed, sell the parts, and have 15k in reserve compared to the other 97.

If I had the cash I'd buy his modified 90 and slap some mud tires on it! That truck is CAPABLE! You aren't gonna find one like that for a long time if ever. I'm still sick about not buying his 94 ST!

Very true! If I was in the market for a SW, this would be it. If I could buy a Yellow ST all over again, it would be this one...it sets the bar pretty high! http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?p=70939

HelloBubba's is a nice 90, I went back and looked at the pictures again. The small world part of the story is that my Portofino Red was badged #296, I guess right behind his on the line!! Anyway, thanks for the replies. And I did notice the aggressive buffing marks on that Monza. Thanks guys and thanks for your Service.....

We bought our 110 from Stephen...a really good guy to deal with and very fair. I would definitely go back and do business with him again!
