1985 Range Rover 2-door RHD 200TDI with 5 speed

Hello,

I just acquired a 1985 Range Rover 2-door RHD 200TDI with 5 speed manual in VA.

This project might be a little too much for me - in terms of restoration.

So I'm entertaining offers as well.

The truck appears to be Venetian Red originally, with brown cloth interior. Front seats intact, and rear folding bench included too.

Rust: floor pans and rocker panels need to be replaced.

Mileage: 136,000

Engine: runs well, no smoke

Truck: it brakes, stops, drives, shifts through the gears.

Title: clean VA title

call or text: 571-210-2705

Thanks!

You need to post a price.

I'm assuming it's this one that was listed here last week. http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...post1919446641

I've got it listed up on Ebay now on a No Reserve auction.

Yup, pics are the same.

I'm unable to post a link to the auction - until I have 10 posts!

Per forum rules, I will say $12,000 gets the whole truck right now.

Well it was never worth just $3500 was it?

Much like the Da Vinci which sold last week for $450 million -- and which sold for a mere $10,000 back in 2010 -- the direction of the market is what matters!

I've been looking for a 2-door RRC for quite some time, and been unable to find one until now - and so it's really hard to price (or "value) such a rig since so few of them change hands that I can see.

Someone with a 1980 2-door RRC restored is asking $45k on Ebay.

A Rover specialist in VA just told me that this 1985 could be worth about the same amount once restored.

If I am way off-base, I'm sure the gents here on the forum will set me straight!

Did they also mention first you'll have to spend $50k to restore it ?

So let me get this straight, this truck sat on this forum for weeks at $3500obo and now you are trying to sell it to the same guys here for 12k just after the eBay auction ended?

Not sure what funnier, Eddie Murphy in his prime or this thread.

Nowadays you gotta assume that every 200tdi has a cracked head. We can argue values, but at least the DaVinci was held together by more than paint

IMO the engine and drivetrain is not worth that much until Strapped to a pallet and sitting at Fastenal. Somebody has some work to do or ?Specialist? to hire.

That?s true for every undocumented engine being traded these days. It?s slightly insane how much work there potentially is when things don?t go as planned.

I purchased a "good" engine, always a gamble. Put it in and out about 3 times before it was right. Ended up needing head gasket and rings.

Ditto, I purchased a running 200tdi from a fellow community member but that means zilch. Mine took a ton of time and new parts before it was in a suitable condition to swap in. At the time I was really disappointed but over time I have realized that these lumps are truly only as good as the last part you?ve replaced. They are a mystery for the owner to figure out on almost a daily basis.

I'm not selling the engine and drivetrain, but the entire truck together.

In any case, the truck is not rusted out but in surprisingly good shape.

The rear trunk area is rust-free - it appears that the floor pan was already restored once.

Other than rocker panels and floor pans, it needs a front grille and some carpets. The front and rear seats could be reupholstered - or seat covers could be used.

1985 was the last year for the vertical front grille, the two piece side windows, and a host of other changes. The 1985 has the look of the previous years, going back to the 1970s. That makes all of its parts much more valuable and hard to come by of course in the USA.

You just need to find a buyer that believes all of that, is willing or able to do all that and hasn?t seen the original asking price was $3500.

Does it still have the vertical grill? Or by 'front grill' do you mean the rusted out front end is needed? I mentioned in the original for sale thread that I have a rust free front end for anyone who takes on this restoration.
