Sorry, another D90 "value" thread.

Looking for help what an approximation of what this is “worth” currently. I am not in a position where I have to sell it, but several facts including moving in the nearish future point to more neglect in the 90s future so its time for a new home. That being said I have no desire to be checking listings and answering emails for weeks to come so you could consider me “motivated”.

1997 NAS Defender 90 Alpine White SW #366 73,000 miles approx (LCD on odometer chooses when it wants to display the mileage so Im going off the last reading I saw and then way over estimating how far I’ve driven since). This has not affected the carfax in any way and can be replaced while keeping the original odometer as Im sure most of your know.

There is rust in the typical spots, I’ll let you experts judge the severity yourselves.

A valet attendant that was not supposed to move it decided to try driving in a parking garage with a safari rack on and needless to say damaged the rack which in turn punctured the roof. The roof has what I called at the time a “temporary patch job” that became permanent it seems. The headliner needs to be replaced due to the time between the accident and the patch and the whole debacle does show on carfax. (also where the rack bolts on on the rear has some damage)

The a/c works but not as it could, i don’t know whether this is because of how hot south Florida is or if it needs to be serviced but my guess would be a little of both.

There are 4 jump seats in the back but the straps that hold them up when not in use are no longer functional.

One rear turn signal is out.

That about covers it, and anything I didn’t mention is average. Definitely not a show car but a great driver and has room to grow by way of a few nicely defined projects that could be done all together & right away or one at a time(i.e. new roof, crossmember, headliner). I can say that it runs great and drives exactly as it should and to non board members it looks great for being 18 years old. The shocks and alternator (& battery) are about 2 years old. Besides that all I’ve done is normal maintenance. I just need a little help on the price range I should be listing it in. ANY & ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED. Any other pictures needed let me know.

A few months ago would have been the perfect time to have dealt with that issue. It's one of those things that's so simple and just takes a little time to wait while it's being mailed out to CA to be fixed, and wouldn't need to be a line item in your listing.

That said, since it's a 1997 it'll be able to fetch a bit more than other years.

Sounds like you've run the Carfax, so upload that as well.

Yes I have but I had to reformat the drive I had it on unfortunately. Should I pay for it again or will anyone interested want their own copy from carfax? The only issue was the accident mentioned it the original post. Thanks for the input!

You're going to take a hit because of the rust.
Rusty door-bottoms and rusty rear x-member.

Was this a Northeast truck at some point in its past?
edit: nevermind-just saw the Copley plate surround!

$25K max. Lots of signs of being ignored over the years. When the exterior looks ignored I assume the fluids and filters have been as well.

BTW, the rear seat stays are not being used correctly.

A good way to think about it is "what would someone deduct for all the apologies." If your truck was mint, then 45-50 wouldn't be unreasonable, but with so many visible defects, a savvy buyer is going to start making decrementing the price based on the cost to fix and subtracting a little more for good measure.

So if it was me (I'll pretend to be a savvy buyer) I'd start at 40 and then:
- 2500 because I need new front doors
- 1000 for new back door
- 1500ish for rear tub issues
- 1000 to paint all that
- 500 for a crossmember
- 1000 to install it
- 500 to fix the rust on the step bumper
- 2500 because I don't want to do the work myself
- 5000 because I'm going to find more problems, maybe with the bulkhead etc

I've already convinced myself that I don't want to offer more than 25 and I haven't even examined the power train aspect of the whole thing.

You could wait for a less savvy buyer, and there are sayings about them being born every minute, but if I wanted to sell, I'd probably just absorb the price hit instead of trying to fix things in search of a higher price.

How was this resolved by your insurance company? Any luck from the valet service with all their b/s disclaimers on the back of your receipt?
