Overland Classifieds :: 1995 LWB Range Rover Classic

This Range Rover Classic hits close to home, as it is a vehicle that I owned for several years and sold back to the same traveler I purchased it from (Andy Biggs).  Andy spent a few years refurbishing the Range Rover to its current condition, which included significant body and frame restoration. Here are the details on the vehicle, which is currently available on Bring A Trailer.

This 1995 Range Rover Classic is a long-wheelbase example that is finished in gray over matching leather and powered by a 4.2-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The truck was acquired in 2017 by the current owner who subsequently commissioned a refurbishment conducted by Dutch Safari of Buda, Texas, and Outland Motors in Bend, Oregon, which included removal of the body from the frame, rust repairs, a repaint in silver, replacement of exterior trim, and installation of new steering, exhaust, and braking components. This Range Rover County shows 91k miles and is offered on dealer consignment in Oregon with a clean Carfax report and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.

The body was removed from the frame and sandblasted prior to being refinished in silver during current ownership. Concurrent work included rust removal and replacement of the floorboards as well as installation of a new front grille and valance, fog lights, windshield wiper arms, mud flaps, and bumper caps. The selling dealer notes that the right rear door latch is stiff and various dings and blemishes are visible around the body.

Factory 16-inch wheels wear 215/85 Cooper Discoverer all-terrain tires that were fitted at the time of the refurbishment. Additional work included a rebuild of the anti-lock braking and traction control systems, replacement of the ABS ECU, and installation of new brake lines and front calipers.

The cabin is trimmed in gray leather with matching carpets, and wood veneer accents the dash, center console, and door panels. The center dashboard panel was replaced with a refurbished unit sourced from Congleton Service of Colchester, Vermont, though is said to fit improperly due to broken mounting brackets. Additional work performed during current ownership consisted of repairing the courtesy lights and dimmer module along with replacing the dome light lenses and headliner trim pieces. Amenities include a sunroof, power-adjustable and heated front seats, cruise control, air conditioning, and a factory cassette player. Per the selling dealer, the stereo makes a popping noise when powered on, and feedback is present at low volume. An interior tour video has been provided.

A leather-wrapped airbag steering wheel frames a 135-mph speedometer and a tachometer. The six-digit odometer shows just over 91k miles. The cruise control and vacuum pump have also been repaired.

The 4.2-liter V8 was factory-rated at 200 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque when new. The hood lift rod and engine bay light were repaired as part of the refurbishment, and other work included replacement of the oxygen sensors, oil cooler lines, battery, and multiple fluids. The selling dealer notes leaks are present from the valve cover gaskets and rear main seal.

Power is sent to all four wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The rear chassis member was reconditioned, and the exhaust system, exhaust gaskets, steering components, and transmission lines were replaced during current ownership.
