Run away now ! I'm sure you'll be fine.
Fair market for that is probably in the 7-10k range depending on how good it is mechanically. Buy it, it will never depreciate.
Looks nice in the pictures, whats it like underneath?
Dried mud on the frame, slight surface rust still sound solid when banging on the frame. Good cross members and hangers. Some surface rust on bottom from doors. Didn't look at the bulkhead and the steering balls (?) seemed a bit pitted but intact. Would need a repower and a re everything to make it a decent driver
If that was here in the UK, it would be a pile of orange dust in the shape of a Land Rover The enthusiast over her would be queuing up to get their hands on that one in that condition.
There's been a few low ball offers, but the sellers are proper pikeys and are firm at 8k. . . .I hate pikeys!
It's either that hunk of aluminum or a new Husaberg
Tough decision but I know which one I'd go for. Just be careful because these frames are known to rust from the inside out. If it was me I wouldn't pay that kind of money unless I was damn sure the frame is good. Have a mechanic put it on a lift and go to town with a pick hammer. You don't want this to happen.
I brought mine home for the second time this week today. :huh The dealer fitted a new steering box, a new door latch/solenoid and a new crankshaft sensor and loom. Seems ok to me.
I took my 4yo lad with me and he got a bit fed up on the return trip so I let him take some pictures with the camera whilst we were driving. He spotted a few more landrovers and tried to get some pics of them for me
And I found these on the card when I copied it to the computer Looks like he's on a Landrover phase now.
Please someone talk me out of Rover, I'm getting the bug.
In need of a very capable 4x4 for winter storm commutes and camping duties.
Trying to avoid the passé jeep liberty or the pedestrian Tacoma.
Looking at a 02 Disco or that aforementioned hunk of '60s aluminum that will take all me monies. :d
Funny I almost bought an 02 Disco new for 34k, yet today I can pick up the same rig for around 7k
Wow they must be very reliable and economical trucks to run.
Not that I'm much help on talking you out of it... I've got an 04 Disco I found at auction that I'd sell for $5.5k, 120k miles, looks good overall. Don't do an 02 for $7!
I agree with Neduro (who is still my hero!). Ebay is loaded with 2004 Discos with low miles for around $7. Jeep Liberty is the worst vehicle in North America according to JD Powers, fyi. I got one as a rental once and I agree.
I might, MIGHT be able to be persuaded to sell my 95 Classic, if one was seriously interested. Been thinking about early Ford Broncos lately.
I had a Gen 1 Disco and hated, hated, hated it. Piss poor fuel economy and uncomfortable ergonomics. Also pricey to fix when it broke, which was often. I accept 15mpg out of a forty year old truck like a Series IIa, but a daily driver should do better.
Mine is the gen2. TD5 Auto, I'm still on the first tank but it looks like it should be getting around 20mpg and it's all been around town. Not great, but it does go offroad most days to my workshop which is on a farm and Sometimes I pull a small trailer too.
Is that original paint (I can't tell the color...).
The hood and roof were repainted due to the truck being from FL. They were pretty sun faded. The color is original though. Its the 1995 verson of BRG. The picture doesn't show the color very well.
What year model is this please?
Not the best shot in the world, some guy heading past our place late in the afternoon
Unfortunately we aren't able to get the diesels here in the US. There are so many cool Euro diesels its a shame.
You don't want a 2002. They don't have a CDL (center differential lock) among other known issues.
If you're looking at DIIs, 2004 is the only year you should be considering.
