Realistic Pricing on D90s

Are D90s in the 70k-85k mileage range really selling for around $30k? I see TONS of them listed for those kind of prices on places like Autotrader.com and I am curious. I'm talking about rust free, decent shape, mechanically maintained trucks. I would think trucks like this would be in the high teens to low 20s.

The last few I have bought have been low 30s for 40K milers.
I don't see 70K mile 90s dipping into the teens any time soon, would guess upper 20s personally.

If a 90 of any substance at all dips into the teens there are a dozen sharks ready to grab it, so the majority of the 90s will stay above that level. IMO.

Mine fits closely enough into that category and my asking price is quite a bit less than $30k.

Alex,

Looks like you already have a 95? How long have you had it? What did you pay?

Depending on what you want, there have been rusty trucks for low teens to perfect trucks for 60K.

An Above Average truck in good condition is 25-35K.

I do have one, I'm on my 2nd one. My first was mint condition, I purchased it with 8k miles on it for $35k in 02. I think I spent close to 6k on upgrades for it over the years and then sold it 06ish for $32k with 40k miles. The one I have now was purchased a year ago with 78k miles for about 22k. I have since put close to 8k in it for parts and repairs to get it how I want it and cleaned up a bit.

I'm really just curious about the market and what is really selling at what price vs what people think these should sell for.

Up grades and repairs don't make a shit of difference. With what i paid for mine and upgrades and repairs i would need to sell mine for about 50,000. Don't think that would happen unless there are some dickheads out there.

So far, this is the most sensible thread on 90 prices , let's hope
it will stay like that.

I would agree on some level- especially when it comes to some of the significant mods done. Repairs are a part of vehicle ownership. I would think that a buyer might be willing to pay a bit more for a truck that is running strong vs one that they know will need repairs. I think it also depends on what you are buying this for. If you want a garage queen that is reliable and super clean then you are going to pay that. I know I've done things that do nothing for the value of my truck but make me smile.

I'm simply curious as to what the market is really supporting. We see the high prices of the dealers that can sit on the cars for extended periods of time (Land Rover Denver South comes to mind here), but I was seeing what the reality ws for everyone else. I'm looking at the ones on the middle- not the ones that are beat to hell or the pristine ones with under 10k miles.

I paid high 30,s for a 97 not to long ago. 36k miles and just perfect. I figure I spent about 8-10k more than I could have but my 90 has everthing I wanted in it and is super clean. The only thing I needed to do when I got it was register and drive. I figure why get a lesser truck that I would have to spend time and money on to get it where I want it. But I will say my first Defener had 100k but drove as good as my new one. After four defenders I learned the best price does not reflect what you will actually spend on it once you start fixing all the little defects.

You stole the <10k mile one. I paid $54k for my '97 LE with 12k miles in '00 and felt like it was a fair deal at the time. My '95 is in perfect mechanical condition - in fact - I'm picking up the heads today after having a complete valve job done to start putting everything back together (this along with the other work I'm doing because I want to- not because it needs it). At an asking price of $27,500 advertised here and on LRX I haven't had a single phone call or email on it. So...apparently...in today's market...that's too much.

The first one the owner needed to move that or a restored Corvette for other projects. I think I stumbled upon him at the right time and I don't think he had it advertised well. Yours is a really nice looking truck, I'm suprised it hasn't had more interest.

Me too. Not even a tire kicker. The valve job was finished and the heads were delivered today so everything will start to go back together by the end of the week. I'm starting to get the feeling I'm not going to get any true interest and I won't be "giving" it away. I'm sure come summertime I won't regret still having it

The only ones I have seen sell at top dollar prices have been extremely clean (no rust, no dings, interior not faded etc.) and even then it is usually the case that they are 1997s.

Must be priced like that since the vehicle is so rare

Here are a couple of recent sells on ebay at the 30k mark. These look nice and relatively low mileage. I am shopping for a low mileage 97 and have made some "reasonable" offers to owners only to have them rejected. Seems despite the slow market owners are reluctant to sell below the 30k level.

That Arles Blue truck is nice and a pretty good deal. The only thing that caught my eye is that idiotic light switch install on the shifter box. Why do people do this shit to their trucks?!?!
