So What’s It Worth?

’95 Defender 90 Soft Top – AA Yellow

About 38K miles
Garaged all its life
A/C
NO RUST (really, not on the door bottoms, door latches, bulkhead, seat boxes, rear cross member, tire carrier, undercarriage, none)
Roll cage padding looks new
Bestop Windows are all clear
Past emissions testing a year ago with flying colors
Everything works that I am aware of
Excellent overall condition (really nearly new)
Synthetic fluids throughout
Rear Bench Seat
New Interstate Workaholic Battery (900 CCA/ 195 min RC)
New clutch master/slave/lines

99% sure I have all stock removed parts (springs, shocks, door sills, rear bumper/hitch, front bumper)
The only damage is some scrapes on the bottom of the sliders, front bumper, rear bumper corners and gas tank skid plate (yes, it was used off road, just carefully, and not in the mud)

Extras:

Hella E-Code Headlamps, ARB Wiring Harness, 80/100 Bulbs
Front running/ turn signal lamps changed to mimic ’94 style (two small)
Convex side mirrors
Upgraded Infinity Speakers
Stainless door top studs & quick nuts
Uniden CB/ Firestick Antenna on custom tire carrier mount
Safari Gard Stage III Suspension w/ Fox Shocks
285/75-16 BFG M/T’s (about 20K miles, spare 0 miles)
1.25” Rover Accessories wheel spacers
Safari Gard Front Bumper w/ skidplate
Warn XD-9000i with upgraded wiring and large industrial recovery hook w/ keeper
Mantec Sliders
Safari Gard rear bumper corners
Safari Gard gas tank skid plate
Safari Gard Diff guards (tack welded on)
Safari Gard steering guard
Mantec 5 ton (four bolt) rear tow jaw
Rear twin beam Hella work lamp on Safari Gard Mount

I’m sure I’m missing some stuff, but this is a nearly perfect example, that is pretty cleanly built for doing what Defenders do best, without being over the top. The only negative I am aware of is that it could stand to have the castor corrected, but I just got use to the feeling and never bothered to do it.

First off, don't sell it.

Second, if you are seriously considering selling it. Strip it and convert it back to stock. Sell off the parts, then sell the truck.

That's pretty good advice. I wouldn't sell it.

Make it stock and 30k is where it probably will sell.

$30k is a little light I'd say. Copley is always looking for under 40k miles trucks with AC and clean title and MD isn't that far to transport. It's hard to tell what the private market is doing right now because of financing, but I'd say ideal situation where parties can easily finance or have cash would be $35ish.

Just keep her. You've barely broken her in...

All dealers, and I mean all dealers would sell that truck for 40k. That said they would offer you 25k for it though. For some reason the high end dealers have now problem letting you know they would pay peanuts for what you want to sell and then charge such a high price for the same product. I would say dealers need to make 25% profit. Just my two cents but as you can tell I am way turned off right now on what LR places are offering and what they are selling for.
