Serial No. 777 1997 Soft Top

Great Defender, I am the second owner of this great car and I still talk to the original owner. He put approximately 50,000 miles on it. Its life has been primarily used as a beach truck carrying surfboards. It was kept outside quite a bit so this is not a pristine defender, it is, however in great shape and a great daily driver. The tires are good, suspension good, air is good. Everything works. Paint is wearing a bit thin and it has a couple of minor dings. I put two on the passenger side door when I was trying to remove the windows. The original odometer stopped working on October 2001 and was replaced then by Land Rover of Fort Lauderdale. The new odometer has 20,650 miles. Current total mileage as best as I can tell 52,690. Land Rover of Fort Lauderdale did not put a odometer replacement tag on the vehicle but I have the original records from LRFL. This Defender has a panasonic stereo and modified exhaust that were both put in by the original owner. The exhaust has a comfortable low rumble to it. It runs great, and you can drive 65-70 on the highway without any problem. I have not done much to it since I've owned it, since I have another Defender. It comes with the standard Rover Top, I noticed one small tear over the drivers seat about a 1/4 of an inch . You are welcome to inspect the vehicle and pull Carfax on it, it has never been in an accident and it is solid. I am motivated to sell this Defender because I am working on the purchase of a new home, otherwise, this would have been my TDI ECR restoration project. . Please let me know if you have any question

So you have only put 2,690 miles on it since you have owned it? How long have you had the 90?

What are you looking to get out of it? Can you post some pics?
