94 Defender 90 NAS CDN Model

Hey Guys,

This is my first post and hope that I am placing it in the right spot! I have to opportunity to acquire a 1994 Defender 90 here in Toronto, Canada with roughly 100,000km on it. It needs some work on the body - rust at the rear where the hardtop meets the body and a little bit up near the windshield.

The truck is a CDN NAS spec and I had a few questions that I was hoping you guys could answer:

1) Can this be imported into the USA

2) What would the rough value as is be?

I have done some research and it is always hard to tell what one of these is actually worth because what someone has one listed for, usually is no where close to what it sells for.

Thanks for the help

1) Depends, but likely if it's fairly original. It says you're in Toronto so why would you want to import it to the US?

2) Depends. Post pics. How much is it available for?

1) Yes.

2) You need a lot more information. Frame condition and mechanical condition are the most important.

Frame is in good shape but I will take some photos of this weekend. It is also in excellent mechanical order.

I am interested in exporting to the US because of the weak CDN dollar and the demand for them in the US market.

It is also in Original conditions with factory hard top and no modifications.

Also look closely at the bulkhead. They tend to rust in hidden places and it gets covered up.

Factory fiberglass hardtop I assume?

I don't think you will get much money importing it to the US as the market for NAS trucks is strong in Canada too.

Not so sure about that. The problem is the value of the Canadian dollar.

There are more potential buyers in the US, the Canadian market for these is pretty small.

Add the fact that if you want a Defender, you can get a 15 year import for less than a 22 year old NAS truck. It further reduces the marketability of the NAS model in Canada. But there are still a few NAS purists north of the border.

A big this is the 15 year vs. 25 year rule in the US. Also the 30million vs. 300 million in population. But the main thing is the weak CDN dollar. This makes for a huge spread.

Anyways, the truck is a V8 and the bulk head is not rusty.

Let me know if you guys have any idea of value and where other than ebay, craigslist etc. would be good to sell.

Cheers

What's the number on the back plate? That's a start....CDN or just a number?

Next step is pictures... and lots of them.

That is not mine and I am not trying to buy all of the Canadian ones up.

Like my original post I am just trying to figure out if I can ship my truck to the US and what kind of range in price can be expected.

Honest answer... With out seeing any photos of it, you could be looking at anywhere from $10,000 to $40,000. (and don't kid yourself, there is rust on the bulkhead, you just don't know where it is, but most potential buyers will know exactly where to find it, and they will).

"What's it worth" is like asking someone how much dinner costs. it depend's what's on the menu... At MacDonald's it's $5.00 at Ruth's Chris it's $150

No dis-respect intended, but these aren't Honda civics where there is one on every street corner, they aren't a commodity. Most buyers of NAS trucks are very specific, and if you want top dollar for it, you need full disclosure of EVERYTHING, be it good or bad. You probably aren't really going to get much of an answer from this group without everything out in the open.

Yes you can import it to the USA.

No one on this board is going to help you figure out value on a truck you are literally buying to resell. If you are trying to make a profit good for you. Do your own research and figure it out.

Actually there are a few here who sell via the eBay route who I know for a fact don't disclose diddly and that's WHY they get top dollar. Respray at Maaco then take pics from further away, say a truck with a 4.6 has 20k miles on it when it actually has 160k, or sell a baby stroller saying it's never been farted in.

True enough... and usually people buying those are looking for "one of those African Jeep things. You know, like one of those cool safari trucks".

Devil is in the details...

Fair enough. Completely respect where you are coming from.

This is my truck and I am trying to decide whether to put some money in to it to repair the corrosion on the body, or sell it.

I'll take a bunch of photos this weekend and post them up to give you guys a good idea of the condition.

Cheers
