Am I off base on my asking price?

--NOTE-- I put this in the flea market to respect the For Sale section because I am in fact looking for feedback

I recently posted my 94 D90 on CL in NJ/NYC area at $33K OBO. Below is the truck history and work I've put in over the last 3 years. I happen to live in an area where there are folks with deep pockets of disposable income (Were that the case, I would keep my 90 and also enjoy my soon to be owned 84 110 double cab from Phil.) and its possible i'll get a local sale.

I would appreciate honest opinions on the truck and pricing and I will absolutely consider all offers should anyone be interested. Don(another member) has seen the truck and the work done over the last few years as well in case anyone wants a outside opinion.

I don't think you are high on the asking price. Key word being asking... Real market value is probably in the upper 20's. You might catch someone sleeping at 33k but you should be prepared to sell it around 28 in my opinion.

I can't open the photos either this is strictly based off your description of a well maintained, usable, but not 100% original 94 NAS 90.

I am also not sure your description is doing you any favors. A lot of those things can be disclosed after the initial inquiries. Too much information up front keeps people away. You want them to contact you with questions, so that you have the opportunity to "sell" it to them.

Contact me directly I can help you put something together.

Matt - your 90 is very nice and we do live in a Defender friendly area. Your truck sounded amazing that night you dropped off the windows. And I know you have put a ton of solid work into it so I don't think $33k asking is bad at all.

A few things:

- like Adam/transient said the description might be too much info. You have done a lot but I think buyers in our area might want to see a dollar / hour figure rather than a list. I would spreadsheet all the work out and anyone interested you tell them you could provide documentation.
- IMO soft tops will be the sellers in our area vs a glass top and rack. The guy that bought mine has kept it in the garage and I don't think he has put the top back on yet. Another friend does the same. I might look into selling the rack and maybe getting a Rovers North top or something used off of the board. Although going into winter it might not be bad to have the glass top.
- add lights to that front ARB - I don't remember if you had them or not - I know when I threw my Hellas on the white truck and said I would include them my buyer was pretty excited about it.
- have you posted it on Autotrader? Or Cars.com?
- I am posting from my phone and can't see the pics - not sure what you used for a backdrop but that can go pretty far. Take pics of it with the beach or the Navesink in the background. I think a lifestyle shot would go a long ways.
- have you thought of consignment? I think Lomedico motors might do something. They had a red 90 on their lot earlier this year that I don't think was his. Your yellow 90 would stand right out and his shop gets a lot of traffic.

Hope this helps and I will spread the word around as much as I can.

I was originally planning to embed it in HTML and then adjust the width and height know I got the embedded slide show to function.

------ Follow up post added November 7th, 2013 07:47 AM ------

I'm also contemplating installing the newer belt rail for a ST and having an exterior respray and the from roll cage parts powder coated as well. If I did part out the safari rack, what do you think that would go for?

You'll get the biggest bang for your buck by having the truck FULLY detailed, and removing your front headlamp surrounds and grill, and refinishing them so that they're not gray...and retaking your photos.

This is one of the worst times of the year to sell a soft top, so it's not going to fly off of the shelf. Even hard tops are selling slower. If it was an Audi with Quattro, this would be the ideal time to sell. Your price isn't too far off, so as long as you're willing to negotiate you shouldn't have any issues (aside from it being the wrong time of year).

Matt, the price you set IMO is as much dependent on your timeline as it is supply and demand. If you can wait then don't budge on price. If you get tired of waiting then you'll have to sweeten the deal somehow to get it moving. Looks like a nice truck at a fair price, given you have time from the the supply/demand lines to cross.

I can surely wait. The danger is when I have the 90 and the 110 double cab, I just may decide to not sell the 90 which will prolly not go well with SWMBO. I'm going to pull the grille and trim and resort those.

Have a great weekend.

Looks like he had it repainted because the paint was shot, beyond shot. Everything else looks like it was when I sold it to him. I did repaint the light trim and the grille before he bought it. The owner of the dealership was a standup guy and he paid a premium to buy it in my opinion.

It's a good truck and it will make someone with a garage a happy customer.

In the last two photos, it appears that the hood release procedure is similar to mine--yank on the remnants of the broken release cable with a pair of pliers, hoping that this isn't the time the whole thing breaks off; and resolve to soon install the new cable that's been sitting in the back of the truck for several years...

No- it's one better, a section of parachute cord tied to the latch mechanism and then tied to the grille. Stay Classy San - DIAGO
