1989 Land Rover Range Rover Classic$27,500.00 OBO
For Sale


1989 Range Rover Classic with fresh custom built 4.6L V8 with new Top-Hatted liners, fully rebuilt transmission, rebuilt transfer case, Detroit True-Trac differentials front and rear, and a fresh full body respray in the factory Savannah Beige in 2022. Over $20,000 in recent receipts.

The truck is currently registered in California, and has a current (within 90 days for sale) CA smog certificate. Over 190 pictures are available upon request.

This Range Rover Classic was originally sold in central California and has only been registered in Central or Southern California for its whole life, so it has ZERO RUST. I have maintenance records dating back to 1995 from previous owners, and receipts of all the work done during my ownership from 2015. I have done extensive maintenance and upgrades to the truck since purchasing. Almost all electrical components are functional, including the air conditioning, power seats (both seats move all ways) central locking, all lights, and all electric windows.

The truck retains its original look, form, and function as stock (no metal has been bent or cut, no structural changes or modifications), however many driveability and performance upgrades made during my ownership (within 7 years and ~7,000 mi) have made it a vastly better vehicle to drive in the modern world. See details below:


Custom 4.6L Rover V8 built by IE Rovers Lake Elsinore, includes full block cleaning and machining, new top-hat cylinder liners, match-honed cylinders, all new bearings/bushings/journals, rebuilt cylinder heads with new valve springs and guides, new gaskets and seals, new piston rings, new oil pump.
