Used 1997 Land Rover Defender for sale in Houston, Texas
Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is very proud to be able to offer this remarkable 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 (#577). This is a truly fine example of one of the British off-road vehicles that were first introduced in 1983 as the Land Rover Series III, then became known as the Defender 90. The Defender 90 quickly became the vehicle of choice for British and Australian military and police units across the world due to its ruggedness and maneuverability. It was also used by US forces during the Gulf War, where it was discovered to be a better fit for navigating urban situations than Humvees. Far away from conflict, the 4×4 became a highly coveted vehicle among auto enthusiasts in America, who saw it as a more exclusive alternative to the Jeep & this one is no exception. It was originally imported from Japan into Long Beach, CA. on August 28, 2018 & the U.S. D.O.T. bond was released on September 24, 2019. This information is all verified through CarFax, as well as the mileage at time of import showing a super-low 27,900 miles (unable to document prior to import, but believed to be actual) when it was taken to a local European vehicle specialist in Signal Hill, CA. to have the engine and powertrain computer module replaced in Jan. 2019. They also replaced the valve cover gasket (a fairly common issue with the older Rovers), the fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator & less than 650 miles later. This Defender is finished in a beautiful Alpine white with black diamond-plate accents & rock guards and is completed with a light gray interior that shows very little wear. Powered by a petrol 4.0L engine and teamed up to its 4 speed automatic engine and a locking differential 4 wheel drive system, you are sure to be able to navigate just about any road or trail you wish to conquer! Other options include: AM/FM/CD, A/C, Power steering, Off Road radial tires, sunroof & much, much more.You are going to very hard pressed to find a nicer Defender 90 these days in this price range, and all the market indicators show no sign of the rising prices on these truly collectible off-road machines slowing down anytime soon, so if you have been considering adding a classic Rover to your garage, now might be your time!
