That a $21,500 detail and tune up. Better be the cleanest 110 in the world when it rolls back out of your garage.

For a $21,500 tune-up, I'm assuming the truck will now play with your balls as you drive it.

I am almost willing to pay an extra $21k for that.

Buy low sell high, it's the American way innit? It's all relative. To me 58k is absurd to start with. I'm sure we all would love to flip a vehicle and pocket some cash. More power to him. If you don't like the price, simply don't buy it.

Agreed completely on value and making money. But would you agree that it's probably senseless to come into *THE* den of US Defender enthusiasts and try to pull a $21k detail/tuneup/fluff & fold markup on a known NAS 110?

The American way is knowing your market, and not being a dumbass. If the American way was/is also making terrible business decisions, then this newb has succeeded. Reasons this dude isn't going to make $21k on this truck:

-Naoh had the truck for sale for $65k for over 2 months in one of the wealthiest markets and it didn't sell, because he wasn't negotiable
-Naoh then bumped the price down, but was still having trouble selling it.
-Naoh then put it on eBay with a BIN of $58k, and the truck was bid up into the $40s after a few days, at which point this dude hit the Buy it Now button at $58k.
-Reputable Defender dealers around the country all stayed away from this truck at $58k, even though Naoh was willing to go down to $52k, as they knew there just wasn't enough meat on the bone for them to risk it
-This newb with a 0 feedback eBay account hits the BIN button on eBay and is so clueless about the market and the business that he then goes to an enthusiast site WHERE THE TRUCK WAS JUST LISTED and tries to flip the truck for $21k more. You're clearly a genius
-Anyone who searches the VIN will immediately see that it was posted in the $50s and you're now trying to sell it for $80k
-No one knows you. You have no reputation, aside from a questionable one here. Sure...someone will pay you the same price for a NAS 110 that reputable dealers who have been in business for years are selling for less.
-There are at least 12 other NAS 110s for sale right now - it's been amazing how many have hit the market recently by private sellers. You have no competition at all.
-Good luck, it's a good looking truck.

Yes, it is senseless but quite entertaining! I will stay tuned to see how long it takes and if he makes anything. I doubt it will be fast and nowhere near 21k. But even if it's a modest profit it's a good investment these days. It should help the market at least.

Yep - and the market issue is interesting. As Josh said, there's a 110 sale extravaganza. Spring fever? Need cash for the stock market? Trying to ride a wave of broader Defender interest? This demo has kids that are close to college age? Random occurrence? I have no idea why so many seem to be on the market. Guess that's a broader question out of the scope of this thread.

I could honestly care less if they sell it for 80k, if he can get it, good for him.

DuSouth is a car dealership, this is what they do. Buy and sell. And as for their "reputation", in my experience, they are good guys who close fast. All anyone selling a car cares about.

While not exactly the way I would have handled flipping it, at least they bought the truck instead of wasting my time (or in the case of one well known East Coast "Defender" dealer, try and poison the well and talk trash about me and my trucks after I turned down their ridiculous low ball offer. The world is a small place guys, did you think I wouldn't hear about it??) like some of the other "reputable" dealers.

Having had two NAS 110s at the same time and selling them recently, I think the market is going down simply because guys like me can get 300tdi powered ROW trucks now pretty efficiently.

I'm die hard RHD. How much to swap it back to RHD? If not, I only want a NAS 110 that's survived an engine fire. Too soon? sorry...

Its like Barrett- Jackson. Most of the stuff that rolls across their blocks is selling WAY too high but like they say, there is an ass for every seat.

Who was this EC "Defender" dealer? Inquiring minds, well at least mine, want to know...
