WTB:sub $20k D90

Am looking for D90. What is possible in sub$20k range?
Rust free, well maintained if hi mileage.
Am in NorthEast so as rain proof as possible
SW probably more so than ST.

No "repaired salvage" or "damaged but repairable".
email addy is preferable to PM, as it is quicker, but I check both.
karlodonoghue@gmail.com

Am finalising the sale of my p-38a, and this would be replacement.

Thanks,

Karl.

Lord Almighty...if you find one sub 20's I believe I will run...not walk... to the nearest bridge. While "ask" prices can vary enormously, i.e Copley vs Autotrader, my general impression is that-at least the 97 SW-prices, while having softened a bit, are still in a range of 27ish to mid 30's. Somebody help me if I am off base.

but 94 or 95?

Thanks Kevin.
I should have also mentioned that I too would run at a 97.
But 94's and 95's? Possible, even at a skip and a jump if not outright galloping?

Thanks for input.

Yeah, there was a time about a year ago when you could find a 100k mi+ D90's for sub $20k occasionally, but I haven't seen that in a long time. Lately prices are rising again and the cheapest I've been seeing is mid $20's. Under $20k all I've seen lately are Salvage titles that still have not been repaired and would cost thousands to repair if you don't own a body shop.

Hey, anything is possible. But if its a good deal you need to be prepared to act. The good deals dont hang around ...
If you buy a ST and it has the original top it will not be weather tight.
You would be better off with a SW and even they are the best in the northeast winters.
Why not a repaired salvage? If its done right its not a problem, and would help with your goal of under 20k.
Going from a p38 to a defender they are a world apart. Have you driven a defender?

I paid 15k several years ago for my current D-90, and paid 16.5k this month for another one. They are out there, but easier to find through word of mouth and connections than ads. This new one I'm getting from a buddy so I didnt have to worry about locating/inspecting/bartering etc. Just keep your ear to the ground. Maybe talk to some rover places and see if any customers are laying off trucks.

Your best bet might be to target vehicles advertised in the low 20's and then seek to drive the price down if your pre-purchase inspection shows that work is needed (which it will). My first truck was advertised for 19,500 and the dealer indicated it needed 5500 worth of work. I made a 15k offer and the seller accepted it.

My 94 ST with 113k has been for sale for 17-18k for the last six months and JimC was the only one dumb enough [err maybe smart enough] to buy it. :-)

Of course I was the only one stupid enough [err maybe smart enough] to buy JimC's grey market 110 last year.

;-)

Ron

edit: I have bought and missed out on some real winners. I can think of ones that sold for 10k, 12k, 12.5k, 14k and one that is now selling for 48k that originally sold for 8k.

Yes Ron, but you have to admit, I only advertised Janey to you, and your d90 wasnt exactly hanging out all over auto trader, ebay, and cars.com. I think the best thing is to get into the defender community (that sure sounds pretentious...) and just snatch something when it comes up. I think lots of good trucks trade hands between friends and acquaintaces without every really going to market. I might have gotten 500 or a thousand more for Janey on ebay, but I preferred it go to someone I knew for non-inflated price. Many of these transactions arent about making money, those are the best ones to be involved in.

'97 on the board here for 23K. Mileage is a little high for me, but close to your number you are looking for..

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=10849

And a Built '94, maybe within negotiating range?

Thanks guys. I will keep my ears open, and will ask around.
Ron, a friend of mine had one back home, in IRL, so I have driven them. I know that going from p-38a to D90 is different, but the p38a has more things than i need. As an aside, i have a 73 2002tii, that i have instead of a mini cooper, and although they are not comparable, i preferred the older more rough and tumble yet raw experience of the tii, to the admittedly fabulous yet not quite primal MCS.

Thanks Scott, I did see the 2 listings there, not a fan of red, but color doesn;t come into it, at the end of the day.

Karl.

Yes JimC,

Selling and buying within the community is ideal. Not worth the hastle of ebaying mine and having someone take it to a dealer who says it needs thousands in work and have them try to come back on me or dealing with the people who think it is cool but have no clue. If you want cheap, you have to expect to do some work on the trucks. That to me is worth a couple grand more I might have received for my truck as opposed to selling it to JimC at what the wholesaler offered for it.

Ron

I don't know if you looked there or not, but Autotrader has one for 20k. It has been there since last summer (price keeps dropping).
Good luck

I have abuddy that has a 1973 2002Tii that has been sitting in his yard for 2 years. I replaced all but one fuel line for him 2 years ago. He still hasnt touched it. It has NO rust and is clean inside and out what a shame ....
Good luck with your search.

Thanks for tip Randy.

Ron, its a pity your friends's tii is just left there. He might have a look at forums such as bmw faq 2002 where there would be interest in his car, if he has lost interest. I have a buddy who looked long and hard for rust free tii. Not easy to find.

Thanks,

Karl.
