If you would like a 100% original Land Rover Defender 90... this is your opportunity.

Imported to the US, this 1997 Defender was the last year this make/model was available. Very rare automobile with only 2500 made for the US market. Everything is 100% original: frame, body, interior, engine, paint, etc.

Comes with original hard top and soft top! Very clean and cared for single-owner vehicle, has been parked in garage nearly every night.  Has resided in the Pacific NW since purchase in Portland OR.  Includes receipts and original paperwork, including the original dealer bag with goodies (even the new car window sticker). Runs/drives as well as it looks!

Please phone Kevin at 360-281-4567 and if I’m not available, leave a voicemail message – I will be returning most calls in the evening during the week.  I will not be responding to any text messages until we talk first.  Thank you.
