1995 Range RoverClassic LWB, via WCXC

I just spotted this 1995 Range Rover Classic LWB for sale on Bring a Trailer. It is said to have been meticulously maintained by a collector-owner and the photos certainly bear that out. You just can’t beat the design of the the Classics. They just look so right, even after twenty years, especially in this color combo of Plymouth Blue paint over tan hides. Power is provided by a 4.2-liter V-8.

Of course, their legendary good looks and off-road prowess are only matched by their legendary need for maintenance. As one commenter on Bring a Trailer put it, “For anyone considering buying this vehicle let me offer you this option. Gather up all of the money you were going to spend (cash only, no checks) and pay me a visit in person. We will split the money 50/50. I will kick you in the crotch as hard as humanly possible and you will go back home both mentally and financially better off.”

Ouch… Still—she’s a beauty, isn’t she? Here are the rest of the details, in case you can’t resist.

The air suspension has been replaced with coil springs and Bilstein shocks. Mileage is 107,000. The truck is available in Woodland Hills, California. Bidding currently stands at $15,200 with no reserve and about 13.5 hours on the ebay auction clock at the time of writing.

Many more photos and the original ad text after the jump.

Update 02/05/2015: Well, that ended quickly. The ebay ad says the item was pulled because it was no longer available. Surely it was picked up by someone with impeccable taste, balls of steel, and a wallet to match.
