97 ST for $20K Craigslist

Looks like rust has gotten to it, but maybe not that bad for the $$. Maybe a nice trail rig for a couple years then resto project

http://newyork.craigslist.org/wch/cto/4116112916.html

Copy and paste from the ad:

1997 Defender 90 NAS
V8/AT
Borla custom exhaust
Warn m8000 winch
Hella off road lights
Rear work light
Trailer hitch
Safarigard tailgate
Undercoated
Mileage is estimated at 90,000 miles (True miles unknown, odometer not working). The frame has been welded on the passenger side rear and undercoated in 2012. New brake lines and calipers in 2011. It needs new rear bearings and new tires all around. Both doors are rusted and need to be replaced. Side steps are beginning to rust. The tailgate also has some rust starting but could be cleaned and painted. ECU replaced in January 2007. Serpentine belt replaced March 2010. Water pump replaced in March 2007.

Saw this the other day. Too bad on all that rust. It does have a nice badger top and gutter kit, plus some other goodies though. Ron was looking for a cheap and rusty NAS ST, so maybe he'll buy this.

I don't think its a good deal. How much labour and parts will cost to get it to look decent. Spend an extra 15K and get a clean truck.

From a straight dollars and cents standpoint, it might not be a great deal. But for someone looking for a project to do themselves, it's not bad.

Clean trucks turn to rust buckets. If you fix a rust bucket right, it won't rust again.

Totally agree - like Josh said wheel the hell out of it for a few years and then do a rebuild.

It's a 97 NAS ST - they should only go up in value. $20k and then $10k in parts you could have a very nice rig and not loose money if you do the work yourself.

I was just thinking galvy chassis and bulkhead and door frames for under $5k if you do it right and the work yourself.

From another standpoint, starting off at $20k instead of $35-40k for a 1997 ST truck if you intend to just switch the cage, center console, and identity to a 110 and sell for $100k, I'd say not a bad deal.

Yup, $30k and thousands of hours of your life and you'd have a sweet truck! And while you may be divorced at that point, but it wouldn't rust for a while

Charles - you know you have described more than a few of the owners on the board save for the divorced part . Just have to tell the wives it is cheaper/better than a lot of other habits.

I would drive that everyday. Who cares about the doors. Fix the frame with random patches if it needs it. The only thing, if I were in the market for a used NAS 90, that would keep me away would be that driver's side bulkhead top corner.

That's one thing.

The other thing is those horrid wheels...

True. Boosts are garbage. (edit: But as pointed out those are deep dish) I'd throw some freestyles on there or any steel wheel. But my fav of all time is the RRC 3 spoke grey alloys.

I must be in the minority. For LR alloys I think the Deep Dish look the best.

Good thing that deep dish wheels are on there and not boosts then!

Damn. You're right. Equally bad as boosts.

Word.


Now truthfully, this is a shit price for this truck.
Any of us who have been around any Rovers know the rust is worse than it looks.
There was a decent AA yellow truck on here from Ontario for $23K. A little high IMO but the truck looks solid.

This white 97:
True miles unknown??
Doors about to fall off
Bulkhead probably shot as well
Tailgate probably just as bad
Underneath looks terrible
Frame has already been patched and welded before
Brake lines have already rusted and been replaced(probably just the pipe on the rear axle)
Springs and shocks that look that bad, well you know...

Owner says needs new rear bearings?? Not sure why that would be if it is only estimated 90,000 miles unless the rust is so bad it has permeated into the rear hubs--- LOL

Then, there are those wheels...


Having said all that if this truck were to sell in the low to mid teens...I'd be into it.
