Thinking about parting with 94 NAS #8

I'm not decided yet and my wife has reminded me how my 72 Rangie has been waiting for a simple repair for three months and I haven't had time for that... so restoring this Defender may never happen at my current rate.
It has 152K miles, mostly in Arizona- only 900 miles since brought up North to Vermont and the chassis looks fantastic. No body damage but the hood is a bit dented from the heavy spare. Has dual tanks fitted by Land Rover with transfer pump and dual indicator gauge. Engine runs very strong, new NRP exhaust, R380. OME suspension looks several years old but works fine. Swivels look good. ARB bumper with M10000 Warn and Hella 3000 lamps.
Large Tuffy side box in back with rear facing seat w/shoulder belts. Dual Optimas with marine grade switch. Alpine CD and 4 Alpine speakers.
Wingtop protectors, sliders, brand new crossmember mounted swing-away spare carrier. Fiberglass hardtop with one crack on driver side. Header rail and usable stock soft top, tonneau cover and bikini top.
Roof rails for hard top and also a full Safety Devices basket rack w/twin ladders in very good shape. Very little corrosion externally, but some visible on the roll bar mounts and hinges- but not terrible.
Problems: Suspect distributor- runs strong, but ignition sometimes drops out when pushed hard. I think the advance doesn't work. Bought a Mallory for it, just needs installation.
Door frames are corroded- already have some replacements from the Dubai desert coming in a few weeks.
Rear pinion seal is leaking as is the power steering. Has CodeAlarm alarm system that needs to be removed because it is junk. Headlamps cracked, but work. Hand brake needs new shoes and cable. Driveline vibration at highway speed- suspect rear drive shaft. I'll know more this weekend- I've only driven it four times since I've owned it and don't have time for it.
What do I want for it? I dunno.
Ideally, I'd like to trade for a XD and cash or some other 'baby hauler' since wife is due in 8 weeks. I won't lose sleep if it doesn't sell or trade away, but would like to open up a dialogue with some potential 'good homes' for it.

It's in Vermont- willing to offer discounts on any parts one might want for it if it finds a new home.

Forgot to mention- also considering for trade for 109SW (IIA or III), XD, Trek or Kalahari Disco

Steve, if you decide to part out I would be interested in the cage. Im in MA and could come up and take it off.

I won't part it out- it's FAR too nice and solid. All it really needs is a little freshening up of some of the wear parts. It has less corrosion than most other D90's. It was also one of the traveling display 90's that Rover used in ads etc- it has history.

Mark- based on CPI, I think it scores a solid "good" and has some extras- there's a set of swampers on steel wheels for it somewhere too and lots of documentation. As for a baby hauler- I want an M3, wife wants a classic restored Beetle. What we'll end up with- I have no idea. Was hoping for an XD or 109 Station Wagon to keep it in the Rover family.

AC or not?

How about a e320 benz wagon from 2000? Does your D90 have AC?

an m3 as a baby hauler? have you ever been in one? i hope your think about the e36 4door at the least!

I bet you might be able to find someone to go for a trade on a bmw forum, the only problem is the e36's are primarily owned by kids now, and are probably pretty beat up!

I've owned an early M3 and have probably a dozen hours of track time in some newer ones. The 4 door and the automatic versions are nearly given away, but my wife needs an auto. Just looked at a few in the last few days for around $20K or so with low miles- the automatics are silly cheap. An e320 would be interesting as well...

you are a lucky man, my wife looks at the back seat of her 330xi and says there is not enough room for kids...

I hardly think 20k is giving a car away!

Would you be willing to sell the hard top?
