1969 Land Rover 88 Series IIa

Going to look at it this afternoon. It may be close to sold. Car is not mine, but I know the dealer and they represent clean cars. I think they are asking somewhere in the 30's for it. I'm interested in it, but likely not one this clean and I admittedly do not know the market on Series Rovers.

I tried to check to make sure this wasn't already posted so forgive me if it is.....

Nice Bugeye. 30k is a lot of coin for a series rig. There are many in good to very good condition for .25-.50% of that.

Buying that car in the 30's would be a great investment for that dealer, but not for you.

For top dollar like that, I would expect it to be in a far higher state of restoration. The galvanized parts should be regalvanized, not painted. Especially the frame. Painted-over frames raise my spider sense. It should have a full, correct elephant hide deluxe interior with door cards. It should have all the correct lamps. Engine should be rebuilt/painted/look like brand new. Wiring should not be loose, should be wrapped in correct covering and be new.
Plus, there's other wrongness that needs sorting out; the door seals have been poorly installed, the door check rods are bolted to a station wagon middle door check bracket instead of the welded tab as they should be (door replacement alert), the rubber grommets on the bulkhead have been painted over when it would take all of twenty seconds to remove them, rusty steering wheel center cap. I'm sure there's more.
It's a $6-7K truck, in my opinion. That's being fairly generous as I am only seeing what's in the pics.
Who knows the state of the clutch, the drivetrain, brakes, etc.

oooh I dunno Bill. I would think $10-15K would be a better representation of what it's worth is. Maybe not what you or either I would pay....but what one could "get" for it reasonably quickly.

But Ben will prob not be able to get it for close to that if the dealer wants $30K!!!!

Even at $15k the dealer would probably still be making quite a good ROI

Im at the 15k mark with this one. For 30k it should be a total rebuild. Everything should be clean clean. It looks great in the pics. But what about the engine compartment? They left it shabby. Painted galv? That's a shortcut that will look bad in a few years. The interior should look cohesive and complete.. doesn't.

Now these are small points that wouldn't matter on 90% of rovers, but if they're trying to get mid 30's (top of the heap price for an 88) they've got to do better. Or chop 15 grand off the price at least


Bill, was elephant hide still coming from the factory in 1969? Mine's got the black "deluxe" vinyl and the truck is pretty much umolested. This one is only 43 serial#'s later than mine!! A close relative, born in the same month. Week maybe.

That year should not have the EH vinyl. They came from the factory with the black deluxe seats and door cards. I haven't looked at all the pictures but it isn't worth the asking price. I think someone believes a Series truck should bring Defender prices.
