1994 D 90 #491 - Conniston Green (No longer for sale)

NOTE: Per post #17 Tony has decided NOT to sell

I don't think I want to do this but it's the right decision. It's a tough one too as she's defined who I am for the last 10 years.

It's come time for us to part ways. I've got too many toys and not enough time. This poor truck spends more time sitting in the garage than on the trails. It's only been driven 3K miles in the last 4 years. She is almost totally rust free. Any rust is just surface rust. She's spent her entire life in Texas. When I saw my first Northeast truck a few years ago I was horrified at what you guys deal with up there.

The vitals:
  • 1994 Defender 90 - Conniston Green - Plate #491
  • 132K miles give or take.
  • ARB front bumper
  • Warn 9,000lb winch
  • Mantec sliders
  • 2 tops - full original snap tickford(needs some TLC) and full-length surrey top.
  • Locking Tuffy center console
  • Rear bench seat and seat belts
  • Raingler cargo netting
  • 3" OME lift and shocks
  • 275/85R16 all around
  • New clutch about 8K miles ago
  • Head gaskets and radiator about 12K miles ago.
  • Checker plating on wings and rear corners.
  • New clutch master and slave about 4K miles ago.
  • New catalytic converters(Magnaflow) and muffler(Flowmaster) about 6K miles ago.


The not so good(remember the old girl is 18 years old now):
  1. It does have a few 'love dings' from being offroaded. Nothing major but she's no show queen.
  2. It's been sitting a while so has the normal leaks. Nothing major.
  3. Needs a tune-up after sitting too. She's a bit down on power right now.
  4. Heater blower has never worked in the 10 years I've owned it.
  5. She's got a shimmy at 50+mph. I'm sure that's due to swivel pin pre-load needing adjusting. I'm doing that this weekend.
  6. Gas gauge doesn't work. Refill when odometer hits 180miles and you're fine.
  7. Odometer is making a clicking noise like a gear in the dash needs replacing. Works but reads about 10MPH fast.

I plan on taking it into the shop and have a bunch of little stuff done to it(brakes, hoses, tune up, etc) in the next week or two. Once done, the price will jump.

Asking: $16.5K

I will post more detailed pics in the next couple days. It's been raining here and she's a bit dirty.

P.S. I will probably ask for right of first refusal should any buyer decide to sell in the future.

Tony - don't just give it away!! Sad to see you're selling her - hopefully she'll go to someone you know so you can get her back!

I'm not giving it away. I feel it's a fair price. Almost exactly what I paid for it 10 years ago. She could use a bit of mechanical work due to sitting for the last few years. She's been a daily driver for me the last few months so is in decent nick but a little work can have her running like a top again. My wife thinks 4 Rovers at the house is excessive but has never badgered me to get rid of any. I just can't keep up with repairs and upkeep on that many.

Selling the 90 gives me the money to restore the '66 SIIA and pimp out the RRC for a hopeful run of the Pan-Am highway in the next few years.

Tony, I'm sad to see this happen, I must say one of the main inspirations for buying my 90 was going through your photo albums documenting your truck rebuild. I have 'watched from afar' if you will. Sad to see it go, but someone will get a great truck.

It's dark here so hard to get decent pics. I haven't even cleaned it as I haven't had time. Y'all know what a clean truck looks like. If I took time to detail it I'd have to ask $2K more. The 3rd pic shows the worst of the worst body damage. Could probably be pulled out pretty easily.

That oil spot under it looks pretty bad. Never mind it. It's actually from the BMW when it blew a seal a few weeks ago. I'm not going to claim the 90 doesn't drip a bit though.

Aside from the rear quarter panel the truck really presents pretty well. It probably is a fair price, but there have been a few trucks sold lately here then relisted for way more - just don't want it to happen to you. If Roving Beetle contacts you, you know you've priced it too cheap! Just kidding Doug, I'll see you in a few days.

Good luck again, Tony.

I don't _have_ to sell. The price is the price. If someone agrees it's a good deal then we'll both be happy. There's a reason there's no 'OBO' after the price. I've already had some, frankly, insulting offers. I always reserve the right to just not sell it and keep it. My 15 1/2y.o. son has his eye on it.

Give it to your son, if it fits his personality he'll thank you forever - the social dividends pay off well into life. Further than the truck's bills. Met my girlfriend a few years ago in my hometown (Charlotte). On introduction she knew who I was because she admired (from afar) my 95 d-90 wagon when we were in different high schools back in 1996. Hadn't even had that defender since 2002. I'm holding on to my PoE till I have a 16 year old so he or she can wreck it and walk to school for the 5 cold months it takes to fix like I did. Good luck with the sale, nothing wrong with pricing accessibly for a new owner.

I think that drives it down. I'm still not sure the stink is all out.

CvC can vouch. If you can find him. I haven't seen him since my birthday in December. His employer is working him into the ground.

Can you maybe snap a picture or five of typical spots and email them to me? Doug at desertboat dot com

If you don't mind I'd rather chat off-site to keep the riff-raff out of your thread.



Thanks,
Doug

Please tell me where I can find these Defender loving girls around Charlotte. I have a 90ST in need of a passenger seat companion.


Back on topic, please sell this ASAP so I don't do something stupid to try and buy it.

Sorry, guys.

My wife convinced me I don't want to sell. I never did but it seemed like a good decision money-wise. The truck will be taking up room in the garage for the forseeable future. I guess I'll be wheeling it at SCARR in a few weeks.

I can't edit the original post so I hope folks read this far down.
