Frequency of NAS D90's selling under 40K

I've been contemplating selling a couple vehicles in my stash to help support the purchase of a lower priced NAS D90. I should more so preface that by lower priced I am referring to the
40K ish' and under market. In looking into recent sales from various sites and sources it seems like there have been a fair amount of them sold in very nice condition and continue to come available. What I'm curious of is how frequent the truck I'd be interested in comes available. I'd be looking for either a White, Arles, or Black S/T and it needs to be an Auto. Preferably with A/C. Color preference would be White but for the right price I wouldn't be too picky in color.
The vehicles I'd be considering selling would be my 95' LWB with under 90K original miles and plenty of documented updates, etc, etc.... And my 2007 Mini Cooper S Sidewalk Edition Convertible with 77K miles and also well documented and kept.
Pics of both subject vehicles are shown here.

This is not a FS thread nor a WTB thread. I am purely looking for some feedback, advice, and any thoughts regarding what I am considering.

Lastly, I should mention my purpose of the NAS purchase and the usage of the above vehicles to help get the best advice. My Classic I use as a partial DD and is my "main" truck that I drive of all my Rovers (for now). I love it and will always have one but would consider selling this gem to support my cause. I drive the Mini as a change of pace from the Rovers. Its fun as shit to drive considering it's the S model and drives like a go cart. Hard not to like it. But, I mainly drive that as my most reliable and always driving vehicle. I don't drive any of my vehicles including the MINI for gas purposes at all. I drive it most of the time for work purposes. Basically the above two vehicles I mainly drive interchanging.
I'm thinking about buying the NAS to replace them both. That's my contemplation at this point.

Any thoughts, leads on what I'm looking for, advice, etc......is what I am seeking.

Thanks in advance

Honestly i think you will be hard pressed to find decent automatic... so 97 NAS D90s under 40k and if you do you are going to have to move incredibly fast to lock it down. You mention they come up...when and where did you last see a 97 NAS listed under 40k?

Love the LWB by the way.. want to trade for a white 95 SWB?

I've seen NAS 90's sell for 40K and under but never mentioned a 1997 NAS or any particular year. When you mention the year 1997 does that mean that it's the only year of the Auto? I'd take an earlier year. I suppose I need to do a bit more research on the different years of the NAS90 to see the differences.

Thanks for the compliment on the LWB. I won't sell it or trade it unless I'm getting something like I mentioned in the start of the thread. I've had so many 95 LWB's and this has been the best by far.

Ahhhh.......well than. I suppose that changes things a bit. I guess that means that I'd be needing to do an auto conversion on my own with whatever I find in my price range.

I should also edit what I mentioned in my initial post to say that I've seen plenty of NAS 90's sell for 40K and under but never paid attention to what year they were to distinguish if they were 1997's nor if they had auto. My bad.

You sure they were NAS 90s and not just 90s?

Do you prefer manual or automatic transmission? Soft top or station wagon?

Here's one under $40k

1994 Land Rover Defender 90

I am helping my friend sell his Land Rover Defender 90. Its a good southern defender with little to no rust. No rust anywhere under the front floor board or rear load deck. No rush on the cross-member. This truck is mostly stock in exception to an ARB front replacement and aftermarket speakers. Factory AC! Over $10k spent in recent years on service. Most recent, the speedo has been replace after 136k miles. The defender does have some dents and dings about the body! Please email me or text if you have any questions or if you would like to see it in person. The owner is open to offers. Please no low balls and please no soliciting! Thanks for looking

I don't think it's a good idea to go through the hassle of a conversion job. It's been done, yes. But, after all the cost you'd soon realize that it would've been better to pay the extra amount upfront for a '97 NAS. You're going to end up buying a donor disco to pull ALL of the auto trans components and then hiring someone knowledgeable to do it. Labor, parts, time... Further, if you buy an '95 NAS I'd say the value would go down in the eyes of some folks if you did a conversion job.

They are out there. You have to be able to:

-Assume risk, as the low priced ones often lack appropriate, detailed photos. You could hit a gem or a beat truck that needs doors, bulkhead, and chassis to start.
-Have the cash ready to go and send it quickly. I have purchased 3 NAS trucks for under $40 in the past 18months. One was a 97. I agreed to the asking prices within 1-4 hours of listing. Be willing to consider a salvage title if it has been rebuilt from the chassis up with all new parts.

There are diamonds below $40k. Most will either have sat in the sun, faded paint, dusty as heck, and with off road crap that detracts from the value.

I don't think an auto conversion would be too difficult.
