so long story short i have old boss of mine moved out of the states and put his house up for sale and had left his 97 defender thats been sitting in the garage since 2007 and just moved around his garage here and there.
so talking to him yesturday he asked if i was intersted in taking it off his hands and gave me a crazy offer to buy it
which im sure its worth it but seeing to do a really nice restoration for it and im here to learn all i can so get this all set up

heres the pictures he sent me
1997 defender 90
auto
v8 4.0
ac
53000 miles
very slight rust of fuel tank and exhaust muffler needed to get replaced
im picking it up today to get it out of his way but is there anything that i should look for like common areas of concern?

thank you

Welcome. Sounds like a great opportunity for you. Congrats. Super low miles (literally half the miles on my 97). Looking forward to pics.

congrats on the new ride.. im about 10 minutes away on Ridge, and currently have my 90 ripped apart right around the corner from you. Good luck with it. As Angus said, we should link up and compare notes.

Welcome! I'm in Hershey with a 110, a Rangie County, and a LR4.
The local club, ROVERSclub, is having a picnic, with off roading, in Blairsville NJ this weekend.
