Default Selling my rover, need help pricing.

Its a 99 with 191k miles on it. The car runs like a tank, engine is excellent . I did recently replace the master cylinder and new spark plugs/wires. I regularly do preventive maintenance checks on the car. The issues it does have are the driver window and back passanger window wont roll down, and cruise control doesn't work. Interior is a 9/10, and has a new JVC radio. Car has bumper guard, wench, and fog lights.

You're going to have to find a die hard Disco I fan unless your market is different than mine (TX). Here, it would be in the 3,000-4,000 dollar range.

Nice truck.

Keep it!!!

I second the 3-4k range, with emphasis on the 4k end. If you've done the proper maintenance to it and it's been well taken care of, you can raise the price a little bit from that, just because a lot of these trucks are abused. For example if it's had a recent head gasket job, I'd take whatever you were going to ask and then tack on $750-1k. If you get someone who knows Discos, they'll recognize the value of peace of mind. Start a bit higher and then come down, make people feel like they're getting a deal. If you sell via the facebook marketplace, it shows price reductions as just that - reductions. Makes it a little more enticing for the potential buyer.

However, I also second the "keep it" comment. Good looking Disco, also rare to see the paint in such good shape, especially on the roof. I'd buy it if I wasn't already sinking every paycheck into my current one...

I do love this car, however, im just ready for something new. What would be the best method to sell this car? I've had a co-worker of mine suggest writing for sale with my number on the back window with one of those markers, and driving it around town a few days.... not sure how well that'd do. But im probably going to go the facebook and craigslist route.

Not that is matters any but has the hood been repainted? Very rare to see a D1 that doesnt have paint issues on the hood or roofline. Unless it was garaged. Good looking truck. Having no sunroofs should help the sell for sure.

no the roof hasnt been repainted. the cars just been well cared for its whole life. i know the previous 2 owners treated this car like a baby, both working on the car personally when needed. if you take care of a land rover it will take care of you.

I'd encourage you to put a 'for sale' ad in the 'classified' section on this forum. Lots of pics (exterior, interior, underside), detailed description of upgrades/modifications, whatever maintenance you've done, condition (rust?) and price.

I am needing to see where this thread went ... did it sell? to a disco person or to a newbie? and for how much???? That was too nice of a truck to go to a beginner - if it did then the issues will send it to a boneyard way too soon...please let us know!
