Thread: Defenders on "Car Sales."

  1. #1071
    I hope my grandkids will like the defender.
    But that's probably not gonna happen.

    I think it's a generation thing. I love defender because I wanted one when I was a kid.I must have seen it in a poster or something. Later when I was doing my education overseas, there was a British army base near by the uni. I walled by their fence almost everyday, staring at those 90s. So I bought one

    Defender didn't change the look for almost 50 years so it probably can attract three or four generations of potential buyers.

    My grandkids will be different. They will probably look at the defender as a stupid truck like how I view Ford model T or some other vintage car...They will probably use the exact same words I use to describe them...."good to look at, terrible to drive"

    I think this will be the go for most older Defenders Defender 90 and 110 for sale. Customized Land Rover Defenders hand built as new in our UK workshop

    There will always be the classic collectors however with the advance of hybrid, electric and emissions issues, new drive trains etc... all are a very viable option for the near future.

    I have a 96 110 Camel Trophy and after being back in Perth for 2 weeks I have decided itís not a daily driver anymore, more so because itís just becoming to valuable and to hard to insure properly for everyday use... so itís now back in secure storage, I just hope the rusting Jags donít spread to it...

    Nope,

    i disagree. Thereís a lot of things where my kids think Iím the biggest dag. Having a Defender is possibly the only thing they reckon I got right. Furthermore, as the bin lids started moving towards being teenagers there was less they wanted to do,.....until we got the Defender.
    they now love driving in it and each wants to inherit it.

    keep the faith!

    All food for thought!

    I have a 2016 built 90 thatís my daily drive (3-4 times per week), kept on the street and loved beyond belief!

    I enjoy keeping an eye on prices (have done for years) although, are we really going to sell?!!

    Someone could offer me 200k tomorrow and I wouldnít accept, itís my third child!

    Our two adult sons and daughter all like our 2009 Defender and one of our daughters in law also enjoys driving it. The wife says it's not a city car, which is true, but we bought it for travel, so that's OK. We don't commute in ours, so it's under a carport most of the time, but gets a good run most weekends. Our oldest son keeps commenting on cool Defenders he sees in Sydney. The youngest grandson, aged three, gets all excited when we arrive in "Poppy's car". I think it will come to represent a past era in motoring.
    2009 Defender 110 2.4. ARB bulbar, Ironman winch, Safari snorkel, Steinbauer chip, AP HD clutch, Lightforce spots, larger tank, Off Road Systems drawer, Traxide 160 controller, Tekonsha brakes, Mulgo seat runners, Uniden UHF, Nuggetstuff seat corners, breathers.

    If I had that sort of spare change lying around (and some do), I'd buy that Kombi for that price - no question.
    It's beautifully immaculate and you can see the work and money gone into it.

    It's a shame they've dropped it though; and at that level of restoration surprising that the bench seat hasn't been tarted up.

    $200k would be mighty tempting. That's air cooled 911 money.
