Any RRC value experts?

Not sure where to post this...

I'm buying an 87 RRC from a friend... no sunroof, cloth interior. 1 owner and 25k miles (truck lived at his vacation home since new). I've seen it and it looks new inside, outside and underneath. Recent extensive maintenance.

What is this roughly worth? We can't find any similar trucks for sale or that have sold and are struggling to put a fair price on it. Doesn't have to be perfectly priced, but we are trying to make it fair to each other. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Hard to say RRC prices have taken a bit of a jump recently - for a SWB I would say sub $7K, for a LWB maybe up to $9K...of course it all depends - but being you said only 25K with extensive maint and a perfect appearance...well that would be a ball park.

If it is truly as new with no rust and a confirmed 25k miles on it, eBay would bring well over 10k, possibly up to 20k.

Agreed...the market is crazy for these now. I would love to just see a RRC in near mint! If it's all good, buy it and enjoy it!

I'd go about 4-4500 max. They only pay crazy money in Cali. Even if it's "as new" it still needs to be gone over and have all the fluids and a tune up as well as a good clean. So you'll have to put in several hundreds to get it roadworthy and titled. Buy with your brain not your adrenal glands or other body parts. It is a older stripped-down version after all.

You'll get at least 7k. CRR's classics have been selling well through GMR4x4

It's all about how long you have to wait.

Wide range of opinions... maybe confirms my confusion in the first place. Prices for these seem all over the board. I'd have guessed higher, but only know as much as someone who's been browsing offers on the interwebs for a year or so.

I would argue the 87 is indeed desirable as it is much simpler with less crap to go wrong than the 89 onward trucks. Plus it has the superior Lt230 transfer box.

I would think an uber clean 25k 87 would bring 5 figures in the current market. Cash for clunkers ate up a lot of the classics that were out there and the upsurge in values reflects the limited supply. Damn shame, I think they are one of, if not the best looking Rovers ever built.
Guessing the headliner isn't sagging ?

You know It's what you want in the end...these older trucks require so much maintenance. It's especially bad for us/we...as dysfunctional, obsessive, compulsive tinkerers...we spend more than is needed and fund an entire industry built on supplying parts for fancy tractors...

How about a real-time data-point?

RMR just sold a really nice '94 Mosswood Green LWB for a little over $10k
I haven't seen it in person yet, but my next door neighbor is taking delivery of it this afternoon.
He reportedly paid $11,000 including shipping from MS to MA. THis one had the OME conversion.
It's not on their web site any more, but it looks really nice. More mileage than 26k of course.

I did mention that he could probably find one for $7-$9k, but he wanted all stock/no mods, well-sorted. As someone stated, there's an ass for every seat. I would have scoured and hunted for the perfect one locked away in somebody's heated garage before the RMR markup, but there's a price for "right now" isnt there?

I thought he was asking what to pay his chum and not what retailers are getting. My mistake.
I'd still say only about 4-5 grand then flip it to one of the girls on the forum here for twice that.

I think the truck is worth more. I think in the $9-10k range. Where else are you going to find a sub 30k mile classic that's nice. I would say plan on immediately spending money on maintenance though.

17 year old vehicle, you want it as simple as possible. No sunroof means fewer leaks.
The extensive going through hopefully addressed all the lack of use issues. That start with braking system and goes from there. Hopefully it was kept and lived in a rust free environment.
Is he expecting you to put the first price on it? If so, you don't want to go to your max price and get pulled upwards.
I'm in the 8300-9000 range if it is 100% perfect body and mechanically. If not deduct accordingly.
