Post subject:  Prices for a 101

Hi There,

I have been searching for a 101 on here and ebay etc

The one which is currently advertised the guy is looking for over £5000, another one is just under £4k are these a fair price or an unrealistic price both seem to have some problems and not top market.

But on checking a price classic Land rover guide they range from £1500-£4500

Would be nice if there was a good price guide from this Club for different models and conditions.

Thanks in advance

Charlie
P.S. Im in the market for a GS 101 :D

The price guide is.....as no two 101's are likely to be the same.....as cheap as you can get it :wink:

Seriously though, they are not like any mass produced model, & they are all getting very old. Yes some seem over priced but its a case of valueing each individual one on its merits. If you dont feel its worth it then dont buy it. Mind there is always someone with more money ready to come along & buy it if they feel its worth it. The best advice is to examine it thoroughly & weigh up what needs to be done & the likely cost. No 101 thats used regularly hasnt got a to do list :wink:

Whenever I am asked, I always say that prices range from £1000-£10,000!
The forsale ads that I have seen since starting with the club have supported this.

In general. Expect to pay £2500 and up for something that is MOT'd and on the road.

There is so much variation in what is on offer that the prices vary other than that!. Pay what you feel confortable with!

Have a look through the ebay finished auctions and through the previous threads on this forum to get an idea.

We cannot really do a price guide, but if you find something then feel free to post a thread somewhere on the forum and you will get an honest opinion on pricing!

Are you looking at the same one as me (the guy who's reserve is 5k)? Not top market, looks pretty good to me !!

Not top market? Pretty damn near and a very fair price! I looked at overpriced sheds for a year before I finally found mine. As everyone says on here, one 101 begets another, I'm thinking about the £5k one.

The 3995 one looks fair to me. The corroded chrome swivels would be a point to try and bargain him down a little but don't look bad enough to be a worry. Interesting it doesn't have a winch but does have some expensive winch parts on it - you could sell those off and get some cashback - the double pulley fairlead is a seriously rare and expensive item on its own!

In the end of a day this type of car is worth as much as somebody is ready to pay. I never looked at GS (was looking for an ambi) but from the look of those both cars You mention are on a better end of the 101 scale. Bear in mind that in long term prices of 101s will be only getting higher and it`s going to be more difficult to find a decent one. I belive that with the car of this type it`s always a sellers market (unless somebody is despaerate to sell). I`ve seen sheds going for over 2 grand so this prices are not that bad.

Good luck finding 101 that suits You.

Raf

Thanks for all the feedback. Having never owned a 101 I thought this would be the best place to ask the question on price.

Sorry Bantammatt, I seen your one on ebay just could remember the price £3295, which going by what people are saying is a fair price. Good luck with your sale, maybe you should put an ad on here :D

I spent 2 - 3 years looking for 1 in my price range...
dithered over a few, bid for a couple, nearly bought at least 1 other...
but was happy with the 1 I have now!!!!!!
It had all I wanted as a minimum,
at in the price I wanted to pay....
and the bloke I bought it off was a top man ( that being the main deciding factor)...
travelled half way across the country to get it...
never looked back!!!

my advice:
look at a lot ( or as many as you can),
set your price (what you wish to pay)
find 1 that meets all of your expectations...
that way your not disappointed!!!

Or you could do what I did and spend about two weeks looking and then buy one with no MOT 350 miles away on the strength of one low-res picture and a ten minute phone call with the owner :D

I should say that I paid £2500 which I think is at the lower end of what you can expect to pay and I adjusted my expectations accordingly. Luckily I still wasn't disappointed.

I looked at lots at shows and then bought the first one i found for sale ;) I also paid £2500 for an ambi with no MOT (but it ran and drove). Ive probably spent that much again (if not more) on it since :lol:

Initially I wanted a one with a Radio Body, however the price put me off and still does when they come up. I was lucky when I bought mine, nearly 14 years ago. Came direct from a dealer, I had plenty to choose from. Still I paid £4500 for a 24Volt RHS GS with a winch, some might say that was over the odds then, but I wanted one with a winch which has proved very useful on a number of occassions.

Now things are very different, not many dealers with lots to sell. Like all vehicles, look carefully before you buy. I would decide what is important, such as what do you want to do with it ?, RHD or LHD, 12 or 24 Volts, perhaps the winch is not so important, and the todo list - try not to have a very long one .. :) I said that I was going to have a new tilt when I bought it, now its a must along with a change of boots.

Some I've seen are complete museum pieces whereas mine has that well used look :)

I drove a mates 101 on a Sunday, spotted one for sale 10 miles away in the local free ads that evening and bought it the following day. Don't think it would be so easy these days!
