- Stock Number:CTP1361
Worldwide Vintage Autos is pleased to present this ultra rare 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 LE (Limited edition). THE RAREST OF ALL LAND ROVER DEFENDERS AND LAND ROVER OFFICIALLY PRODUCED THE LAST DEFENDER IN 2015. Sounds like an investment opportunity?!?!?!!? 1997 Land Defender 90 LE (Limited Edition) Wagon Hardtop. ONLY year Land Rover made an Automatic Defender and this series only saw 300 examples! This one is number 261/300! Clean autocheck with no accidents, odometer issues, etc.
This Willow Green Cruiser is one of the last 300 Limited Edition Defenders brought into the US (#261 of 300). This specific vehicle is fully loaded from the factory and as ultimate rare edition with very expensive factory upgrades, with automatic transmission, and air conditioning, safari roof-rack equipped. We scour the country for vintage cars and trucks like this and we rarely come across one like this! You must see and drive this rare D90!
Production of the model now known as the Defender began in 1983 as the Land Rover 110, a name which reflected the 110-inch (2,800 mm) length of the wheelbase. The Land Rover 90, with 93-inch (2,362 mm) wheelbase, and Land Rover 127, with 127-inch (3,226 mm) wheelbase, soon followed.
Outwardly, there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. A full-length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. Initially the Land Rover was also available with a part-time 4WD system familiar to all derivatives produced since 1949. The part-time system failed to sell and was quickly dropped from the options list by 1984. While the engine and other body panels carried over from the Series III, mechanically the 90 and 110 were modernized, including:
Coil springs, offering a more comfortable ride and improved axle articulation
A permanent four-wheel-drive system derived from the Range Rover, featuring a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential
A modernised interior
A taller one-piece windscreen
A new series of progressively more powerful and modern engines. SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA

Due to our inventory size, we are unable to drive every vehicle for long distances. We also cannot guarantee that every gauge, light, option, function, etc., will work as it should. We do our best to inspect these vehicles in every detail, and note any imperfections in the advertisement. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE ANY AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS, GAUGES, OR ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE VINTAGE VEHICLES WE SELL, THESE COMPONENTS CAN BE WORKING AT ONE MOMENT AND NOT WORKING AT ANOTHER MOMENT. IT IS COMMON THAT THESE COMPONENTS WILL NEED UPKEEP OR ATTENTION. IN ADDITION, MANY TIMES THESE VEHICLES SIT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND ONCE YOU BEGIN TO DRIVE THEM SEALS HARDEN AND GASKETS MAY BEGIN TO LEAK! CLASSIC CARS LEAK. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THIS BEFORE BUYING A VINTAGE AUTOMOBILE.
We provide approximately 75 HD images, and an HD video, in every one of our listings. Very few companies offer this much detail. We spend significant time inspecting and disclosing detailed items on all of our vehicles; however, at the end of the day, we are not you... we highly suggest that you come and inspect the vehicle.
The information contained in this ad is solely for convenience.

Vehicles are sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS with all faults known/unknown and with no implied warranty.
We do not recommend driving a classic car home. Many classic cars are not driven often and tend to sit for long periods of time making them unsuitable for cross-country road trips. We strongly recommend shipping the vehicle.
Unless otherwise noted, we sell our vehicles mileage-exempt, meaning we do not know the actual, original miles. The information listed in the ad is based on the current odometer reading or from rebuild information provided by the builder, and cannot be used as fact.
