Default 1991 Land Rover Range Rover Classic V8 4x4 $1600 drive it home

Alright, picked it up back in december. Long story short I thought I was going to keep it but have too many other projects


1991 Land Rover Range Rover Classic
123,000 miles
Trocadero Red
3.9 liter aluminum V8
fuel injected
full time 4x4 with solid axle front and rear
coil suspension on all corners
4 piston front brake calipers
2 piston rear brake calipers
Land rover brush guard
Halogen brush guard lights (not installed)
New pitman arm in the last year.
ignition system converted to GM HEI (for simplicity, reliability and cost effective trail repair)
Newly rebuilt ECU
New Battery
New Starter
New NGK spark plugs
New Plug wires
New distributor cap & rotor

these trucks are very easy to lift and very capable for off roading, the engine is an oldsmobile V8 so the mechanics of it are very simple.

this truck is sold as-is, comes with all sorts of random items like the brush gaurd, all weather floor mats, full size spare with almost new tire, stock jack, rear cargo 'cage' divider for pets, i call it the kid cage but you can use it for whatever you want, big halogen lights for the brush guard, among other random bits here and there as well as full electrical manuals that ive printed out and had bound.

body is in decent shape since its mostly aluminum, rear hatch has rust and hood has a little rust on it. tires are in almost new condition. all rims are straight and look good, vehicle leaks power steering fluid from the steering box but as any rover owner will tell you "if the steering box isnt leaking, it isnt working"

there's various small problems with the rig, driverside front door latch was broke so it was swapped for the driverside rear, which means the truck has to be locked and unlocked from the passenger side. Radio was missing when i got it, previous owner yanked it out before i picked the truck up and i didnt notice until the following day (then i couldnt reach him again, imagine that) has aftermarket speakers and an aftermarket amp (in center console) which appear to be wired correctly but i take absolutely no responsibility for that. Has various dings around the truck, no major flaws in the body.

GM HEI conversion was done by me, very simple procedure, works great.

You can drive it home, trailer it home, set it on fire, i dont care what you do with it once you've bought it, i've driven it around town and did some snow wheeling with it without any hiccups. No check engine lights or any signs of disaster.

I'll post pictures once I get home from work.

Ok, until i get the requested pictures, here's the ones i have, note that the front lower air dam has been removed as have those useless fog lights, my intentions were to wire the halogen offroad lights i have to the stock fog light wiring. I will take some pics of the lights this weekend as well

(when i bought it)


rear hatch and gate rust can be seen here, as can the hitch.


while working on the GM HEI conversion, yes it has an air filter box, it was off so i could work in that area


after a night of wheeling through some snow.



obviously these are not the most detailed pictures, nor quality material to represent the condition of the truck but i just decided this morning to put it up for sale, so bear with me.

ive gotten a couple of questions about the GM ignition retrofit, i'll be taking pictures of that as well. It's a fairly common upgrade.

I was going to paint it flat black put a roof rack on it, grab some Kate Beckinsale look-a-like and roll around Underworld Style with fully automatic guns. (they used a rover exactly like this in UW2)

mmm kate



but 90's rapper makes total sense too.
