Question 1997 D90 SW's For Sale

How often is it to have four nice looking 1997 D90 SW's for sale on this board at one time? What's going on with the market that these things aren't moving?

Alpine White - 48,000 miles - $35,700

Coniston Green - 82,500 miles - $ 37,000

Portofino Red - 77,000 miles - $32,000

Portofino Red - 57,000 miles - $36,000

I think the honest answer is that they are not worth the listed prices. Even though they are rare the price is finally starting to fall and the market simply will not bear the premium price. It is just too easy to find a nice 97 in the mid 20s (I paid $24,500 for mine last year and the interior is perfect).

There will always be someone out there who is willing to pay more than a vehicle is worth (market price), but as each year passes I think there will be fewer and fewer people who are willing to pay in the mid or high 30's for a used truck.

Just my two cents.....

I would consider trucks w/ 90k to 100k high milage trucks. If the milage is 130k and over should be priced under $20k. the red truck copley has with 160k, I wouldn't pay over $15-16k. just my opinion.

Keith,

If you have around $25,000 I do not think you will have any problem at all finding a nice SW, especially if you are considering a 95 w/the five speed tranny. Perhaps I am lucky because there are quite a few of them in the LA area (perhaps the only good thing about living in LA...). If you happen to find one in the LA area that you are interested in let me know and I would be more than happy to take an initial look at it for you.

Although I know it is often criticized, I still think E-Bay can be an excellent source for locating D-90's. This is especially true considering how often the sales fall through. I have several friends who have bought vehicles on E-Bay using this fact to their advantage by simply e-mailing the seller and letting them know that they would buy the vehicle at "$X" price if the auction winner failed to come up with the money.

Michael

Thanks so much Mike for the offer. I am considering one in Malibu. How close are you to Malibu?

Keith,

LA is LA--it takes time to drive anywhere so don't worry about it. Malibu would not be that far and I do not mind. Is the vehicle advertised on the web? If so send me the link.

Michael,

I have put a deposit on the blue '97sw John Robison posted on this list a couple days ago. Very nice truck and right in my back yard, 15 min. away. John called me after he posted the truck letting me know it was available. I had told him I was looking for one about 4 months ago while he was servicing my Lotus. I should have it by next week.

I have worked with John Robison for years both in buisness and with service and he is a get guy. Very passionate about specialty and exotic cars/trucks. Look forward to hitting the trails with him.
