This is a 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 NAS (North American Specification) that was actually first sold new in Japan. It was imported to Canada by a dealership located in Montreal before being acquired by the current seller in 2020. Adorned in a white exterior with gray cloth and vinyl seating, it boasts a robust 4.0-liter V8 engine paired with a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case.

Notable features include 16-inch five-spoke wheels, LED headlights, power front windows, rear jump seats, a pop-up sunroof, air conditioning, an aftermarket steering wheel, a Scan Gauge vehicle monitor, and a locking storage box. Its history is documented with a clean Carfax report and Quebec registration under the seller's name, showing no accidents or damage, with initial records dating back to February 2020.



For US bidders, this defender is is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. It can also be imported duty-free as it was sold new in the USA. For more information on transport in Canda/USA and Import, please visit our Transport/Import page here.

The exterior showcases white aluminum body panels complemented by black wheel arch flares. Additional enhancements consist of a brush guard, front skid plate, roll cage, step bars, alpine windows, tubular rear bumper, and checker-plate trim on various body sections. It bears a unique rear plaque designating it as #375 of a limited series of Japan-specification vehicles produced for the model year.

The NAS rides on five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires, with a matching spare mounted on the swing-out rear tire carrier. Braking is facilitated by power-assisted discs at all corners.


Inside, the front bucket seats feature patterned gray cloth upholstery with vinyl sides and backing, accompanied by amenities such as air conditioning, power windows, Scosche speakers, a locking center console, Airguide compass, mobile-device mount, and LED ambient lighting under the dashboard. The leather-wrapped steering wheel, mounted on a quick-release hub, frames a 200-km/h speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. However, the seller acknowledges some malfunctions with the odometer, fuel level, and coolant temperature gauges, with a digital ScanGauge vehicle monitor affixed to the center dashboard.

The odometer reads 65k kilometers (~40k miles), with approximately 2,500 kilometers added under current ownership, though the true mileage remains unknown. At the rear, the cabin features two inward-facing jump seats, a locking storage box, gray carpeting, and a fire extinguisher mounted to the roll bar, albeit with a tear in the trim on the rear door panel.


Under the hood lies a 4.0-liter V8 engine factory-rated at 182 horsepower and 233 lb-ft of torque, with the seller noting an oil change and fluid service completed in 2022. Power is distributed to all four wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case, as showcased in additional underside photos provided in the gallery.
