Valuing a Land Rover Defender/109????

Not sure which section of the Source my questions belongs in; please forgive me if this is the wrong section. I donít know a price so I canít place it in the classified section at this current time. I want to sell my project, but I have no idea what it may be worth and Iím hoping the Defender Source members might be able to help me out.

Iíve come to the realization that Iím not able to build my ďDefender crew cabĒ. I use the defender crew cab description loosely, in reality the truck is an ugly Frankenstein. Before everyone asks why I would do such a thing, Iíll give you a brief history I have with it.

Back in 2009 I had my first kid. Also, I decided to go back to college and finish my undergrad, so I put my 1994 D90 up for sale. About a year past, I didnít get any takers so there was guy in Boise ID selling a ďmostlyĒ complete ďdefender crew cabĒ. The truck was based off of a 1972 109 that ďjust needed to be assembledĒ. He offered to trade the 109 plus cash. I was in need of money to pay for my undergrad so I took him up on the offer.

When I got the truck, I started to inventory all the parts. I quickly realized I was going to need a lot more parts in order to make a complete truck. Over the years Iíve been buying parts here and there. Fast forward to today, I graduated grad school in December. To reward myself on this accomplishment I bought and am in the process of importing a 1990 Defender 110 (much to my wifeís dismay).

This is where I need some help and advice; now that I have the 1990 110 in route, I must cut my losses and decide what Iím going to do with the Frankenstein (I need the garage space now). Iíve thought about trying to sell it as-is (including all the parts Iíve collected) or completely tear it down and part it out.

Some highlights of what I have for it is:
Galvanized chassis
Full Exmoor extreme high back leather interior w/heated seats
Rebuilt 3.9 V8
Rebuilt ZF transmission
1993 110 LHD dash
1993 110 LHD steering column and link steering shaft
Full LR A/C system
Defender axles
110 wiring harness w/ECU
LT230T transfer case
New doors - front and middle
The list goes on and onÖ. I do have a list of most all the parts I have.

Do you feel like there is even a market for this? What would be a good asking price for it as is? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Cool truck man. I'd be interested in hearing what the market for it would be along with what it still needs besides assembly

I would think if it was a running project you could value it much higher than if it wasn't. Get it running. Not running scares off 2/3rds of your market.

Thanks guys, it is a cool truck, but I just don’t that time to mess with it and the wife wants it gone. Now that I’m done with school, I feel that it’s wise to invest my time to my kids and wife.
John, I didn’t keep track of the purchases throughout the years so I really don’t know what I have invested in it.
Chris, just some of the things it needs are brake and fuel lines, drive shafts, tailgate and hardware, rear bulkhead. I’m sure there is hardware that is missing which will be needed along the way.

Do you have a title?

Either way you will make more money if you part it out. There are things you may want to hold onto for the new truck, IE the seats and dash. Depending upon the motor you have in the new truck you might want to keep that set up too? Just depends upon how nice the truck you have on the way is and what it will need if anything.

From the pictures looks to have leaf springs, so this validates the 1972 109 genesis.
There is a market for it, especially with a galvanized frame.
The market is not as broad as if it were a coil sprung 110, but someone will want it.
The expensive parts like new seats could be held back and sold separately or installed in your 1990 110 if needed.

Is it titled? What would you want for it - with everything?

It does have a South Carolina title that is dated 2002. I never titled in Utah because there never a need to until it was built.
