1988 Land Rover Range Rover1988 Land Rover - Range Rover Classic SWB
Selling my partially-restored, functional, daily driving, well-loved and well-used adventure machine. Selling due to career change that no longer gives me time/resources to work on trucks or take extended adventures like I used to.
I bought this Rangie from my neighbor who had owned since 1990. I have most of the maintenance records dating back to original import to US. I also have the shop service manual. I began converting this RRC to an adventure rig capable of daily driving, off-road and overland trips. Most of the big items have been taken care of but it is still what I would call a functional project that will still benefit from additional work as true with most things Land Rover. This would be a great candidate for someone that wants less than a full-scale restoration project but still wants a project that they can drive around, or someone that has a cosmetically-excellent Range Rover Classic but needs mechanical components and extra goodies.
Clean and clear title in-hand for the new owner.
The engine has roughly 5,000 miles on it. Driven daily so mileage does go up.The transmission has about 141,000 miles on it.The body has about 285,xxx miles on it.

Areas that need still attention:- Front driver side hood corner has a small trail dent.- Steering column plastic needs some repair. Plastic is good but the fasteners cracked or broke.- Front pax and rear pax window switches are INOP. Likely need clean or replacement.- Sunroof open/close switch works but likely needs cleaning as it takes a few presses to fully open or close the sunroof. Motor and seal are good.- Front windscreen has cracks in non-critical areas. Might want to replace if not going to be a trail vehicle.- Front driver seat has a torn seam in the seat cushion (see photo)- Shifter plastic is torn. Shifter console face needs new fasteners. (see photo)- Right rear pax door lock gets stuck and needs to be manual unlocked- Shock bushings and coil isolators could use replacing - the springs squeak- Driver power seat control needs new face plate (see photo)- Both catalytic converters are hollow and need to be replaced if wanting to pass emissions (EFI light on), vehicle is currently exempt where I live.- Rust in front pax side fender and pax footwell. Has been sanded and painted. Would benefit from repair and/or replacement. - Air conditioning is INOP and likely needs replacement if wanted up and running again.- Blinkers are currently manual operation. Relay and/or connector may need replacement. I might get around to this in the near future but manual blinking has been fine.- Does have some light oil leaks as per usual with anything Land Rover.- Tires are Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs that will get you through summer/fall but I'd replace before snow/ice/heavy rain. Good condition overall but worn. Currently running 285/75/16's that rub a bit with full angle turns but fine for ordinary driving. Can be replaced with either 265/75/16 or 235/85/16.- Lost stereo face plate. Deck is a newer Alpine Bluetooth CD/Multimedia stereo.
Feel free to message as needed. I try to check once or twice a day and will respond within a day.Open to reasonable offers.
LEAVING ON BUSINESS TRIP - 7/15 until 8/2 - Email and ebay will be checked regularly to maintain communication, but if vehicle sells during this period then they will need to wait until first weekend if August to view and pick up truck.Prefer cash for remaining balance upon pick up. Certified check is fine but title and vehicle won't be released until funds clear.I can connect buyer with vehicle shipping options for long distance buyers in the United States only.
Might be open to partial trade for 00-06 Chevy/GMC Suburban/Tahoe type SUV or crew-cab pic-up with 3rd row seating depending on mileage and condition.
