Less electrical systems? Come on, Lucas is known for unbelievable reliability.

I've always been jealous of the models offered across the pond. A stripped down Land Rover with virtually no electronics and no bells & whistles would be sweet.

Would 5k be too much to pay for a 95 RRC LWB? Low miles, only one rust spot, lots of maintenance, etc...

You'd love my Defender than, the only electrical parts needed to run are the alternator and the fuel pump. The distributor even has points no module

That's not a bad price if it's in good shape and you like it.

IMO 1994 was mechanically the best year for the Range Rover Classic. All the LWB units had the excellent 200BHP 4.2L V8. However the older two door models will always look the best.
I'm with you on the dash. For me the original RRC dash is part of its pedigree. The 4.2 is a great motor and I agree on the 2 door aesthetics as well.

I know the LWB's have a lot of fans, but they are bastardized RR's to me. The extended rear doors and wheelbase destroy the proportions of the original design in my opinion. In practical terms they are fine, I suppose.

I very much agree with this statement. But I will also say the SWB is very tight in the back seat it you have average size adults up front.

Thank you,

Love the color on that one. The body looks pretty straight, hows the interior?

Love the color also! Havent seen many, if at all, in this color being posted up for sale. The interior looks very clean. From speaking to the seller he said it was in good condition. Here's a few pics off the listing:




His asking was $5.5k. He's down to $5k but I want to try and go around 4.5k.

If all goes well I might have her in my driveway tomorrow. We'll see.

Got it!! 1995 RRC LWB. Paid a bit more than i wanted but there was enough work done to her to justify the higher price. New thread will be started once i clean her up a bit.

Thanks everyone.
