1997 NAS Land Rover Defender 90
Number 950
Complete Nut and Bolt Restoration
Offered for sale is a completely restored, extremely solid 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 NAS Convertible
finished in rare British Racing Green Metallic. This was the final import year for this vehicle and is one of only
438 NAS Defender 90s imported in British Racing Green Metallic in 1997. There were only 1499 convertibles imported
that year and this beauty is stamped #950. I purchased this D90 16 years ago and have loved it ever since.
This D90 just passed Rhode Island Vehicle Inspection with no issues or warnings (July 2017).
The Land Rover Defender 90 came with full-time four wheel drive and high-low range selection, a full roll cage and
factory air conditioning. Mechanically fantastic, this Defender is a pleasure to drive offering a rugged feel that
only the best 4X4 in the world can provide. The rebuilt 4.0L V8 starts effortlessly, idling and pulling strongly
and smoothly through each of the ZF automatic transmission’s gears. Compression is excellent across all cylinders
and the truck’s road manners are exactly what you’d expect from a meticulously restored , well-maintained
Defender.
With DOT regulations bringing the Defender 90’s three-year (`94, `95 and `97) North American run to an end, the
`97 model is the last and arguably best vintage of the iconic truck. Adding to the attraction is `97 is the only
year this model came with an automatic transmission. Consequently, the market on NAS Defender 90s has remained
exceptionally strong, making them one of the few modern-era production vehicles to actually be considered
investment grade.

Jaguar SUV mule doing Ring testing in Evoque clothes

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 14:15:00 EST

Jaguar has moved its Range Rover Evoque-bodied tests of the production C-X17 Concept from icy streets to the legendary Nürburgring, as work continues on the brand's first SUV.
Really, there's not a great deal of new stuff here. Based on the number plates, this is a different vehicle from the one we saw back in March, which we originally identified as the upcoming replacement for the Land Rover Freelander/LR2. The details, though, appear largely the same. The biggest distinction we can see between the March tests and this are the US-spec headlights, which add amber reflectors at their sides. Based on these shots, it does seem as if the C-X17 should be a fairly poised road vehicle, as the engineers hustle it around the 'Ring.
Of course, as soon our spies can capture images of a production-bodied C-X17, we'll be sure to pass those on to you. Until then, take a look up top for images of the Range Rover-bodied Jaguar as it tests at Germany's Nürburgring. You can also scroll down for our March images for the C-X17 mules testing on public roads.

Jaguar appoints Joe Eberhardt as North American President

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 18:02:00 EST

Jaguar Land Rover North America has appointed a new president, Joachim Eberhardt. The German exec, 50, had previously done stints at Chrysler Group, DaimlerChrysler UK, Mercedes-Benz USA and Daimler-Benz.
Eberhardt joins JLR NA in a good, but challenging time for the company. It's fresh off the launch of the Range Rover Sport and Jaguar F-Type, which have been subject to rave reviews, and its overall sales are up 21 percent over 2012. Still, as Automotive News points out, the two manufacturers face a fight to become the equal of A-list competitors like BMW and Mercedes in the eyes of consumers.
"Joe brings a proven industry track record and valuable global leadership experience in luxury sales, service and marketing. We look forward to Joe leading our North American team in working with our retail networks to further grow the business and better serve our customers," JLR's group sales operations director, Andy Goss, said.

Jaguar and Land Rover to consolidate dealerships

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 11:00:00 EST

Jaguar and Land Rover are set to merge their sales facilities, according to Inside Line. Jaguar Land Rover North America President Andy Gross says 45 percent of Jaguar owners also have an SUV in their stable, so it makes sense to give customers as much exposure to the cat's high-riding cousins and possible. The number of overall outlets will remain the same, and the brands will reportedly remain separate on the showroom floor, however.
So far, just one dealer has made the move to combine under the roof of one 68,000 square-foot facility in Paramus, New Jersey (above), though a further 20 are ready to make the shift and become Jaguar Land Rover outlets. Gross believes the shift is necessary so that his company's dealer network will accurately reflect the company's products. We'll see how cozy the brands are when Jaguar starts rolling out its own SUVs in a few years.
