Post 1969 Land Rover Series IIa 88

I have a 1969 Series IIa 88 and its runs great. I was told about D-90 source yesterday by a member.
Clean body with very little rust.
4 clylinder gas engine
manual
In over all good shape.
New role bar
after market disk brakes were installed
Could use new gadges since most of them don't work.
I am located in Redwood City Ca.
I am interested in selling the Rover and not quite sure what the value is. I would apprecaite feedback and if anyone is interested let me know. Thanks.

Series IIA dash and Series III wings and breakfast.
Maaco respray including painting the galvy capping.

Those are going to hurt your price a bit. Post photos of the underside and engine bay, they would be helpful.

The wings and breakfast are correct for a late SIIa.

Did they put those wings on '69's? I thought only the late '70s and '71s had the outer lights. Our '71 2a has them.

Yes. Those wings are correct for a 1969 NADA truck. Slightly earlier would have been a bugeye. ROW trucks still had the lights in the breakfast in 1969.

Some more info there with dates.

Follow-up Post:

Take a lot more pics, and a lot under the truck. Also of the engine. No way to give a remotely accurate idea without more pics.

I am the member that sent him to this site. If it helps but I know very little about the series trucks I can take a look at it if there is interest and take pics if needed. In person it seemed very rust free but the body was a little banged up. Just surface rust is all I saw after a quick look. Mike

Value: 5k. Maybe some more or much less depending on chassis rust.

If you unpaint the stuff that is not supposed to be painted, 6k.

Not a bad start but consider the "known knowns" and nothing else. It has the wrong seats fitted, wrong lights, gauges don't work, no roof, and a rollbar that may or may not be worth keeping. It sits very low indicating the springs are probably shot. Aftermarket disc brakes could mean alot of things. The allover paint job looks awful and shows a hasty approach to doing things which I can only assume continues deeper than the paint job. If there is one thing I know how to do well it is buy and rovers that are poorly, and read between the lines of car adverts. Sight unseen, given the photos and information presented I would not want to risk more than $2k and that is being nice.

With more photos and more information it could fetch a better price.

I agree. You could paint some big white hibiscus flowers on the doors and sell it to a surfer chick but other than that you are going to have a problem with that paint job getting a decent price. Rover enthusiasts (speaking for myself) would prefer an old patina to a new maaco paint job.

Mike- thanks for responding to the post. I appreciate it. I really have enjoyed the Land Rover and it is a fun car. Since Mike has been a member of this site for much longer then myself and he introduced me to the site everything he says is true. The overall condition I would say is fair. There is no top and to my knowledge there are parts that are probably not original. The paint is not my favorite to say the least. When I bought it it was already paint yellow..not my first choice.

Colton the paint color is not the problem so much as the fact that things like the rear crossmember etc are also painted yellow.
