1995 NAS Defender 90 Fast Back Soft Top

I am looking for a go to market price for my 1995 NAS D-90 and would welcome actually helpful input. I am the original owner and the car has seen little use over the last 13 years as other cars have been my main mode of transportation. Today the cars has 110K miles, manual gear box, NO AC, rhino lined rear tub and front floor boards, bimini top, I bought a nice used soft top for it this year as the old one was getting worn, BFG's still have plenty of tread, new rear skid plate and bolts, stereo, amp and speakers are up graded; otherwise, it is totally stock. The down side is that the t-case needs to have the seals replaced, rear shocks need to be replaced, clutch master cylinder is leaking, oil leak in the oil pan, one of the swivel ball seals need to be replaced and a few other small things that any 20 year old car needs. There is some rust on the roll cage and some in the drivers door latch pocket; otherwise, pretty good and NEVER wrecked! Thoughts on price?

These pics bring me back to when I saw my first defender with the fastback set up in 1994 at Land Rover West Chester. How beautiful - thanks for taking me back.

How quickly do you want to sell it? High teens for a quick sale.. mid to high 20s if you want to wait and deal with a bunch of tire kickers..

Sorry, but if it's a Utah car for life, it suggests "rust" is really only surface corrosion and can be readily corrected - as opposed to Vermont rust. It's a term of art, but fundamentally different - naturally, pics of the frame, bulkhead, oxidation-prone areas are needed.

I think it's a $30,000.00 car all day if you're patient - and after 20 years, I hope you can hold out for 60 days to get what it's worth. A lot of what you describe is maintenance work and a lot of it is to be expected.

In fact, if I were you, I'd take a look at the original sales paperwork and not let it go for less than $1 more than you paid for it new. Then you can be satisfied that the both of you enjoyed a long life together and you "made money on it." There are few one owner Defenders left.

In PC if it has been driven in the winter, or the valley for that matter rust can certainly be an issue and will need to be considered. Although not on the scale of VT rust that is for sure.

I recently looked at a truck that lived in SLC and PC and rust was an issue not just on the surface.

And a flipper PM's you in 3...2...1

I have no idea on value, but wouldn't sell below 30K, but that's just me with no basis.

Are you kidding? He asked for honest value not what can you steal it from him for.

Fixing the leaks on it would add massive amounts of value in my opinion. Knowing this stuff is addressed gives a buyer peace of mind for paying top dollar.

If it is as rust free as you say, investing a grand or two in maintenance would return more than double when you sell it. Issues like this just give people an excuse to knock you on price.

With issues correctly, a good waxing you can easily get 35k for it on ebay if not more.

Joo no....

This post brings up a point.

I have friend that is terribly interested in a ST Defender, (because he us a putz)) and I can only copy/paste these links.

Any better way to alert a friend, not a dealer?

Thats an honest assessment.. I have no interest in the truck. Im willing to bet you dinner he does not get 35k for it on eBay... 19k he sells it tonight 25k he sells it this week...30k probably a few weeks... 35k it doesnt sell..

Rust is an issue in SLC but Hope that this truck has been lucky and not exposed to the winter salt laden car wash.

There must be vet very few fast backs left. Especially in Portafino Red.

I disagree respectively on not getting 35K on ebay. To Barry's point, this one isn't far off from being sorted if everything noted is accurate.

Hold out Jason, it sounds like you have a good example of a fastback, which you definitely see less often. Best of luck with the sale!

I'm looking for a 90 soft top. Have been looking for a few months. Not a flipper here.

More pics would be appreciated.

Another Douche who has trouble with reading comprehension.... Someone who is well aware of the market.

Hoping for a stupid offer?

Man up and put a price on the listing!

Fishing here for a stupid offer from stupid money is pathetic.

Try to read the sticky regarding the rules of posting trucks for sale outloud, slowly to yourself. First efin post too, probably not even your Defender.
