UNDERSTANDING OUR PRICE GUIDE
Pricing a used Land Rover is tricky. Once it’s more than about eight years old, condition matters more than age. Rarity or desirability pushes classic values up.
Prices here are for standard-spec Land Rovers – or as standard as possible. Each model has four prices to help guide you.
Dealers will charge more, but they have to factor in costs such as warranties that private sellers don’t.
CLASSIC Project A complete vehicle for rebuild or recommissioning. May even have some MOT left.
CLASSIC Price 1 May be Mot’d, but will need work to pass the next test. Factor in the cost of remedial work before considering.
CLASSIC Price 2 Good runners that look okay. No major work (eg, chassis or bulkhead repairs) in the next few years. May be faults, but nothing major.
CLASSIC Price 3 Mint condition if restored/rebuilt, or fantastically original and correct specification.
USED Trade Typical trade-in offer. Refers to earliest models of date range – newer should achieve more.
USED Price 1 Mot’d, but will need work to pass another. Expect newer Land Rovers to be shabby.
USED Price 2 Not perfect, but shouldn’t need major repairs. Body should be straight and well cared-for.
USED Price 3 On newer vehicles this is for top-spec, mint examples, with low mileage and full service history. For older ones, they should be the best around and worth paying a bit more for.
