'94 D 90 for sale

You all may have seen my truck on ebay. Auction ended yesterday, high bid was $13,090. I had a $16,000 reserve and offered it to the high bidder at that price.

I am the original owner, live Utah where truck was used as short haul road vehicle. Has 112,100 miles. I replaced the side steps and front brush bar 2 years ago, they rusted out. Replaced exhaust 2 years ago, just got old and loud, with a custom straight pipe which allows for a nice rumble. Comes with original soft top, one zipper on the back flap is broken, removable fiberglass hard top, rear bench seat, tow bar. Needs new tires and shocks. Never been in an accident.

The engine and transmission are in great shape, runs smooth. I was asked if I had done a compression test and have not, never had a reason to. Does not blow smoke when started and has good power up the canyon from SLC to Park City.

Interior is in fair condition, as things have broken (like air vents) I have not replaced. I did buy a stainless steel bolt kit and replaced many of the bolts on door hinges and cage, still have bolts left over and they come with.

Exterior is in good condition. I have photos to show underside and what rust there is. The only area of rust that is a problem is the plate that protects the gas tank, it has rusted through in many places. All other rust is cosmetic and easily removed for someone who is looking for that type of project (I'm not).

Bulkhead is excellent, rust free, solid. AC does not work, stopped after 2 years and I was told by dealer it was not covered by warranty and since I live in the mountains I did not want to fix it, did not need AC. Took the belt off.

This truck has never been wheeled, although it was support vehicle for a White Rim bike ride in Moab way back in the day, but then so was my wifes GMC suburban a year later....

I kept this truck hoping that one of my two kids would want this as their car, neither does, that and every time I drive it I decide it is still too cool to sell.

If you're interested, have questions, more or different photos, let me know.

Truck is in Park City, Utah. $16,000. It is listed on KSL.com and Craig's list for $17,000.

Your kids don't want to drive it? Mine can't wait until they are old enough, and they are 9 and 5...

Good luck with the sale.

Thats a real good deal on a good color. They are all good color but I am a bit partial. I will try to talk a friend into it that is looking.

Here is how you sell this thing:

1. Replace the rear fuel tank skid plate (~$200 for a stock one).
2. While you have that and the bumper off, clean the stickers off the rear cross member, treat the rust and repaint it.
3. Repaint the front and rear bumpers.
4. Don't show pictures of the underside (swivels are badly pitted and leaking, rust everywhere etc.)
5. Clean the interior.
6. Replace the drivers side seat base (~$200)

I agree with Ron. A good cleaning will go a long way. From the sound of things you dont want to be bothered fixing anything so just remove the stickers, maybe if you feel generous wax it and relist. I think listing what you would do if you were keeping it doesn't hurt:
If I bought it right now
I would remove the stickers
clean it
wax it
repaint rear crossmember
replace fuel cradle with a galvanized one since they are the same price as a stock one
replace the seat cushion or at the very least switch the driver's side and passenger side.
refill swivel balls, one fix pitting but should slow down the leaks
etc etc

I am sure it would go on but that would be enough to get your asking price with less than 500 invested

Follow-up Post:

Oh and what number is it?

I would be in the market next year for one, by that time I would have paid off my current D90. The wife want's one for her and this is a great color choice. I agree totaly with the guys it would not take much effort to clean this up a bit and make it more desirable.

From my experience in selling homes, most want to buy a home that is in ready to move in condition with little or no work to be done...the same holds true for car buyers.

All the best on the sale.

I dont see how a person can let a truck get to that condition, i guess I am lucky to have been in NC my entire life.

Tim - you ad has already gone astray, so let me know if you want to close this thread and re-list it. I think the initial tips and comments were constructive, but that got off track.

C'mon guys, there's a difference between saying something productive and saying something that is basically just an insult. Lets keep it decent.

Thanks Jim, I don't mind the critical comments and the advice is great.

From the comments it sounds like I am in the ball park with price. Seems like for roughly $500 I could bring the truck up to my asking price of $16,000, or I could sell it for $15,500 and accomplish the same thing.

I guess I am a bit surprised no one saw this as an opportunity to pick up a solid vehicle that needs some cosmetic work and turn it into a real beauty...oh well.

I think I will continue to clean it up and offer locally at $16,000, currently at $17,000 so the new price might entice some one.

I don't think that is what is being said at all. I think they are trying to tell you that a little bit of elbow grease and short money will go a long way to increasing the perceived value of the item you are trying to sell- but not making that investment will cost you more in your bottom line.

I don't see anything that looks like through rust (except for the skid) but it is not a long way off from going that way if nothing is done to clean up what surface rust and bubbling is already there.

Mind you it has not even been on here for a day. And your auction did get bids.

Ren Ching is right, its not so much the value as the sell-ability. Its just easier to sell something with the problems already addressed, partly because people feel that its usually just an indication of more problems they can't see and also partly because less people are looking for a project than the number of people looking for a driver they don't have to tinker with.

I had a "as-is" truck on here for several months, and it took a while to find the right buyer who didn't mind a few projects.

I understand, thanks again. My market is the buy at a price that acknowledges there will be tinkering involved and sees the potential with this truck for just that sort of project.

I do have a couple of interested parties and am negoiating via emails, one from the ebay auction and one from Craig's List. Seems the 15,000 to 16,000 might work. Will let you know if I get a deal done.

I agree that its worth more otherwise I wouldn't be offering. No one wants to pay up for a project. Not getting it up and showing these pictures to a retail customer will scare the hell out of them.case and point, the ebay listing. If i where you i'd spend 2 or 3 grand and get it up.

Just wash it and remove the stickers. Right there the perceived value will go up.
