1991 LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER CLASSIC
ACTUAL VIN# SALLHABN8JA613724
NOTE: THIS VEHICLE IS LOCATED IN DENIA, SPAIN, but I ship to the USA. Please check my feedback, and please read the entire listing before bidding.
I am an American, living in Spain, and I sell and export vehicles to the USA regularly. Although shipping costs are not included in the price of the sale, I work every month with an established worldwide shipper and will work directly with the buyer to arrange delivery to the USA. I will drop the vehicle off at the port of Valencia for you at no additional cost, prepare all the proper documentation for shipping to the USA, and handle all the US customs and importation on the USA side.
If you would like me to handle the shipping, customs paperwork, and everything for you, the cost is a flat-rate of $2500, port-to-port, to your choice of New York, Baltimore, MD or Norfolk, VA, Jacksonville, FL or Houston, TX. No additional costs. No work on your part. You just pick the car up from the port, fully cleared and released. NOTE: Other ports are now available at slight additional cost, including ports on the west coast of the United States and all three major ports in Canada. Inquire for details.
Once the vehicle is in your possession, you will also have all the documents you need to register the car in 49 states (California excepted). I can even arrange transportation within the USA, from the port to your driveway. In short, I am here to help with every step of the process of delivering this vehicle to you.
You are of course welcome to fly here and test the car for yourself before you bid, but if that is not feasible, I will be happy to take additional photos, videos, etc. and send them to you. Whatever you need. We can speak on the telephone, or by Skype, so you can see the vehicle in real time before you bid.
If you have any questions, please ask and I will post as many answers here as possible.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?Beautifully refurbished from a straight, rust-free example, it has been finished in a lovely color combination and with a luxurious, hand-stitched interior, and looks stunning from every angle.
The chassis and bodywork are entirely straight and entirely rust free. No rust or damage anywhere. The bodywork, free of filler, has been backdated with body-color C-pillars and bobbed silver bumpers - both nods to the earlier suffix models. Paintwork is Imola Red with silver rostyle wheels, and the result is fantastic. It's hard to put your finger on this color. A deep, single stage blood red, it looks quite different in different light, and in the two weeks we have been driving it since completion I think I have been stopped and given more positive feedback about this color combination than with any other Range Rover we have ever built.
Inside, the seats and door panels have been recovered in hand-stitched tan leather, which has a vintage finish and has been assembled using new foams and vintage-style vertical double top stitches. The result is luxurious and striking, with a perfectly age-appropriate appearance and feel throughout. The dash panel is in excellent shape with no warpage, cracks or holes.
Easily one of the best-looking RRC's we have built to date.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO DRIVE?Decades on, the Range Rover's reputation has (like all SUV's, frankly) evolved into one of a luxury boulevardier. So it's sometimes good to remember that the original Range Rover Classic was one of the most potent off roaders of its time, and one of the most capable off roaders ever built. It was a Range Rover, after all, that was the first motor vehicle to cross the dreaded Darien Gap. It was an RRC that won the first ever Paris-Dakar rally. And then won it again. It was a 2-door RRC that was selected for the 1981 Camel Trophy across Sumatra. These trucks are no joke, and driving one in the rough stuff makes you realize that they are every bit the off road equal of the much more storied Defender models. I proved this to myself, actually, when I entered an essentially stock Range Rover Classic in a 3000km high-speed road rally across Morocco in 2015. When the going gets rough (and few goings get as rough as the off-piste terrain of Morocco) a Range Rover Classic is a pretty darn reassuring place to be sitting.
That said, the RRC was also conceived as an all roader, and one that asked its owner to make relatively few compromises. On-tarmac performance and comfort is magnificent, and fully modern, with precise power steering, a comfortable interior, astonishing visibility, and effective climate control.
This example, with low original miles and after a full service, drives as you would expect. The trusty 2.5L turbodiesel fires immediately and idles smoothly, with no smoke, noise or clatter. The clutch engages firmly and at the correct height, and the gearchange is light, direct and positive, exactly as it should be. Acceleration is brisk and the vehicle will cruise happily at modern highway speeds, with more in reserve for overtaking, and the brakes are strong with no noise, vibration or pulling. The factory air conditioning has been recently serviced and blows ice cold.
With full-time AWD, performance in all condition is effortless. In difficult terrain the 2-speed transfer case engages with no balkiness, and both low and high range work perfectly with no noise. All gauges, lights, switches and locks function as intended and it needs nothing for daily use without concern.
It is as wonderful to drive as it is to look at, so use it as you see fit. Commute in it, take it on long-distance tours, explore the backwoods, go fishing, surfing, or camping on the most remote mountain trails. It will swallow large amounts of gear and get you anywhere you need to go (and then back again) in style and comfort. That's the Range Rover way.
