    Default Defender 90 2.8 - Value ?

    Hi there

    What is the forum opinion on the value of a 2.8 Defender 90 ?

    Bakkie ?
    SW ?

    I have a scratch and might just have found the right "steel - brush" to help

    Cheers

    Very rare and sought after by the UK importers.

    Probably the best engine ever fitted to a Defender.

    about 2.5 yrs ago there were two for sale on facebook market place, both for around R120k, and both looked ok, they stayed advertised for months and months back then.
    I reckon they could easily fetch R200k now

    it all depends what a buyer is willing to pay, even if it was special.
    I personally wont go over 200k and then it has to be really good with no work to be done.

    once it goes for silly money I'd rather opt for a 300tdi .

    BTW, the 2.8i never came in pick-up form.. the ones that did exist was all due to slight rollover with roof damage.

    90% of the 2.8i ended up at Majestic scrap yard in pta west .
    My uncle was good friends with them and they ended up converting some to P/U.

    Agreed. Actually, I would be very hard pressed to even spend R150k.
    The defender bubble is really odd to me. I absolutely love the defender, but, I just cannot understand the high prices people are paying for them, its just wrong.

    Or is this just jealousy talking cos I cant afford one again. Probably.

    For a 2.8 lately? You would end up paying close to R200k for a good example

    All thanks to the US export driving up the crazy prices here even more.

    You can buy a much newer Puma for the price of a old V8 or 2.8. Scary

    A colleague of mine received 105k for his 2.8 90 sw when he traded it in earlier this year. It was in beautiful condition.
    I reckon he could have got a lot more if he'd sold privately.

    I sold my 2.8i a month ago to a UK buyer for R 280k. 1997 model with 287 000km. Locally I had 2 buyers offering me R 250k. My 90 was in perfect condition though.

    The UK buyer has 2 2.8i 90ís now and wants to get a 110 as well.
