This is a 1997 Land Rover Defender 110 finished in white over a gray vinyl interior. Powering this Defender is a 2.5-liter 300 Tdi turbo diesel inline-4 engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The vehicle is currently registered in the state of Massachusetts under the seller's business name, with approximately 260k-kms (161k-miles) on the odometer. The second owner, who has had the vehicle for four years, imported it to the United States from Brazil about one year ago. To the seller's knowledge, this Defender has never had any accidents. The original paint, showing natural wear and tear, was completely repainted to maintain its originality in colors and finishes. The most recent service included a comprehensive mechanical maintenance review, along with new interior upholstery for the seats, doors, and floor mats. Additionally, original new wheels were fitted.


For Canadian bidders, this Defender 110 is directly importable without modification being greater than 15 years old. For more information on transport/import please visit our Transport/Import page here.


The exterior features round headlights framing a black grille with a satin black bumper beneath. Black accents adorn the sides of the hood, and additional black vents are found atop the fenders.

Folding side steps are present at the bottom of all four doors. The white roof incorporates a small window above the second-row windows. The rear door is side-hinged with a mounted spare tire, and a black ladder is attached along the driver side at the rear. A trailer hitch is installed below the step bumper. This Defender rides on 5-spoke silver-finished Land Rover wheels, and the body is fabricated from aluminum alloy.

This well-maintained 1997 Land Rover Defender 110 presents an excellent opportunity for enthusiasts seeking a classic, rugged vehicle with a rich history and recent comprehensive updates.


Inside the cabin, seating for six has been re-upholstered in gray, including front bucket seats, a rear bench, and inward-facing jump seats. The center armrest, also upholstered in gray, conceals ample storage space. The black dashboard matches the remaining interior trim and features a rugged, squared-off design with an A/C delete. The two-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with Land Rover embossment fronts analog instrumentation with round gauges, including a 150 km/hr speedometer to the right and auxiliary gauges to the left. The shifter and transfer case levers are mounted together on the transmission hump.

The seller has owned this vehicle for four years, during which approximately 2,000 miles have been added. The first owner was a politician from Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, who used the vehicle exclusively within the city. Since its importation to the U.S., the Defender has continued to be used within the city.



This 1997 Land Rover Defender 110 is powered by a 2.5-liter fuel-injected 300 Tdi turbo diesel inline-four paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and dual range transfer case with a locking centre differential. This system is rated at 136 hp at 5,000 rpm and 189 lb-ft of torque at 2,500 rpm. Towing capacity is 8,818 lbs. The chassis is a steel ladder design.
