NAS 110 Future Values

Im looking to get feedback from experienced Defender enthusiasts about future values of NAS 110s?. I am looking to purchase one, but nice ones are really beyond my desired budget. Any feedback on what you think the values are going to be in the future on these rare vehicles. Trying to justify the expense and potential investment.
Appreciate the feedback.....

The last one to come up on this forum was in November, which I bought. Buy for the enjoyment of it, thats the true value.

A simple lesson in economics

A vehicle that was purchased 23 yrs ago for $ 39,321 and sells today for 65-75 in normal great condition might sound to a non business oriented person a killer, but if you take the time to compare to other automobiles from said era that have acquired the " I MUST HAVE STATUS " they have exceeded the 100% return.

All the NAS owners praying for the kill price will tell you they are only going up on value, in correlation to other units and purchasing power of those dollars they are not , it is actually a pleasure acquisition and not an investment

Good Luck with the BS you will soon be fed by many NAS Owners :-)

I'll let you into a secret.

White NAS 90 1995 station wagons are where the market is gonna pop. Send me $50k in used bills and I'll get you a 1% share on what is actually a much rarer model.

I'll be in Vegas for a couple of weeks if you need to talk ... But only after you send the money.

in a year or two the NAS spec Defender soft tops will go for $150k minimum. Can't even imagine what the 110's will fetch. Probably be able to trade straight up for a 458.

I was in tongue in cheek mode. They should do very well holding their values given they are cars but I wouldn't count on anything more than that.

The number of nice original ones is dwindling fast.

Restored ones have sold for $100k plus.

Can't find a rust bucket for under $40k these days.

As long as you don't take a nice one and make it rusty you should be ok with resale.

Land rovers as investments?

NAS are great, but I prefer a ROW with no spark plugs all day long.

There's been one on eBay for $47k - buy that if you're looking for cheap.

Buy it because you enjoy it, not because you're looking for a sound investment. That's stupid.

justify it this way - buy it, drive it, enjoy it, don't crash it, service it, sell it and get your money back.
Think of it as parking your money with benefits.

Like most unique/limited autos, they'll keep going up. The market has been a very slow and steady rise for these, but I think they'll continue up, and pick up the pace. Buy one if you like them and enjoy the ride...If you can get one in good shape for a decent price, then you should come out ok down the road too if you maintain it well. They are a fun truck!

I'd rather spend the premium on a LS swap. Yes, a NAS is definitely better than my ROW, but, imo, my ROW with a LS in it would be better than any NAS. And if you put a LS in a NAS, was there ever really any point in paying the premium for a NAS in the first place?

In the real world, if you want to actually use the vehicle as intended, there really is no difference between the NAS and ROW trucks.

Looking at what a cleaned up ROW truck will have vs. an NAS 110, it is hard to believe they have a real value very far over what the ROW trucks have.

If you spend $50k on a nice original NAS. That is it. Done.

But if you were to carefully select and refurbish a 25 year old LHD, $50k would get you something you would have set up to your liking, with the right type of upgrades, and a better drive train than the NAS in stock condition.

Done right, you won't lose money on these vehicles, but you'd be hard pressed to actually make money off them unless you jump into it 100% as if it were a business venture. Tight margins. Lots of work. No guarantees.

Exactly.

What has surprised me is the crazy jump in NAS 90 values. A couple/3/4 years ago, you could find a clean NAS 90 for $20-$30K. Good luck with that now, they've more than doubled in most cases.

The various ROW's I've owned I've driven and enjoyed for 6-12 months before selling them. They've all been nice second vehicles but not capable of matching the reliability of my NAS90. I'd love to daily drive a ROW but the investment (time and caring) to bring them up to spec has never made sense to me. Truth is the ROW provides an experience that the NAS can't touch as well. They're different trucks to me.

I didnt feel right enjoying my NAS 110 as it was intended.. it was too nice to offroad/drive in the winter etc and that killed the experience for me. No doubt its worth much more now than when i sold it a few years ago. For pure enjoyability/reliability I would take my LS powered ROW 110 over the NAS 110 any day. i have no idea what the truck is worth and i dont care because I'm enjoying it too much to think of selling.
