94 Yellow D 90 Price Check

Hi all,

I am new to the forum, but have been interested in D90s forever and am just getting to the point where I think I can justify the purchase.

I have found a 1994 yellow D90 with the R380 manual transmission. The truck is a soft top and has 80k miles on it. New tires, belts, starter and hoses.

What things should I be looking for to make sure the is a good truck to purchase? Any reason to avoid the yellow color? Does it hurt resale or long term value? Should I hold out for a Beluga?

I can currently buy the truck for $26k. It seems that that is a reasonable price, but I have not been tracking the market values as closely as I should be. I know that much better then what you see on Ebay, but those trucks are crazy.


Thanks for any and all comments.

Search forum for "rust"... Rust and poor maintenance are the biggest and most expensive problems. If the truck has been well maintained and has receipts to back it up, and there is little or no rust, the price seems fair. Also check the foam on the cage, the cages are expensive and hard to find.

Yellow ones seem to get the highest price (I will be flamed for saying that but it is true).

Price seems reasonable if it is rust free and in good order and has AC. I always count AC as worth $2500 and a rear seat as worth $1000 in market value. Deduct $2000 if it does not have a full cage.

Basically you are in the ballpark, but it is condition and goodies that make the deal make sense or not. For example, a new badger top will set you back $2500.

If it had stickers all over the rear crossmember and a Badger soft top, yes. There is also a yellow one in Seattle that I have some info on.
