I have Beach Front Property in the Montana willing to trade for a Rhinolined Edition D90, black preferred

None of you ( defending a 30+ price as a valid ) once in front of that car will pay 30K, a well informed person (on Defenders and with that description ) will not do it, unless was using the lower head when doing the RESEARCH

Jason and I have this friend in NYC who is a realtor and a D90 owner looking for a NAS 110. We would laugh at him when he would say a NAS 110 is only worth $30k because that is all he saw sense in spending, but then it'd sell for $55k. Was it worth $55k? Not to him. Was it worth $55k? That's what it sold for. I'd rebut and tell him that I only wanted to spend $600k for a 2 BR in the West Village - he would tell me that a 2BR is worth significantly more. Why? Because they're selling for more...

Most common sense would say that ANY TRUCK that is 20 years old should not even be worth $20k. Yet, here we are.

Worth is the price that intersects what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept.

And that's why our friend is unlikely to drive a NAS 110 any time soon.

I imagine the motor swap was probably done with some junkyard motor if they went through the trouble of pulling the 4.6 and putting in a 4.0. I wouldn't be surprised if it had a 3.9l in it!

IMHO, with a car wash, that is a 25k (or more) truck any day.
Agreed.

People don't sell nice Defender's, they keep them. Its getting hard to find nice Defenders. My truck is no beauty queen, its starting to rust here and there but its way nicer than most of the Defenders I see.

So can we get the details on this truck now that you didn't buy it? What was/is he asking?
