Black Classic SWB

Saw a black SWB RR Classic in Charlottesville today. Figured the LR community up there was small and someone may know about it. It was sitting at a service station I assume for repairs. Needed some TLC but overall straight.
I want this for my next project. Anyone know of this in the area?
Actively looking for SWB in black only. Send any leads my way. Thanks!

there's a guy named Ben who runs the local land rover / Jaguar repair shop in town.

Really nice and, more importantly, honest guy.

I should have looked but I didn't. I did leave a note on the windshield with my number. It did not look like a Rover shop, more like a general garage. Tags were current but inspection was out by long shot.

Although not black, I went and looked at this one today. Solid truck, needs a lot of tlc. Lady selling said it needed an alternator, and it had a "gas leak". Although it says salvage on the ad it's not. She said she was just pressing buttons on the craigslist ad.

Hmmm, worth spending $800 for and dedicating another $3000 on over time. No heat probably means replace heater core. Gas line leak could traced and repaired via the gas tank recall bulletin, if it's still being honored. I say get, fix it and flip it. If cash isn't an issue.

That recall is long over and did not apply to the later trucks with plastic tanks which a 93 would have had. I have had the metal lines rot out on a classic, on mine it was because it sat all year in between MAR's, after not being adequately cleaned.

I'd jump on this one if it were an LWB. I love lwb's for some reason.

Truck in cville is at tarleton oaks service station - it is always in there for repairs. I run by that shop all the time and just had the thought the other day that the owner of that truck must really love it since it never seems to work... Wayne at tarleton should be able to get you connected with the owner.

Not a rover shop btw. Weird that owner doesn't take it to Ben.

Yeah, reason enough is the extra leg room-which you need.
You can move the front seat all the way back on the rails, and there is still a ton of leg room for the backseaters.

With respect...

Applied to 93, 94 and 95 Range Rover Classic and 94, 95, 96, 97 Land Rover Discovery I.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 04V203000

I had a recall notice for my 94RR but I believe I handed it over to galen216 (Galen Lentz) when I sold him my Classic.

NHTSA recalls last until all vehicles on road (insured, registered) affected are repaired.

Even with the seats all the way back you still have more room in the back than the front. I have to say, I love the 4.2, it just seems so smooth compared to the 4.0s and 4.6s I've owned.

Thanks for the info, I'll call first of the week and see if Wayne would give me owners info, or just see if the note I left makes it to the right hands. Since it is at the shop regularly maybe the owner is ready to move on.

I have this stupid feeling of going down and offering the woman with the blue one on craigslist $500 with no idea what could be wrong with it. Anyone local in VA that knows these better care to take a look at this one with me?

As with any Rover, especially a RRC, I would check for rust first.
The running issues really dont concern me that much. They're fixable.
Rust is much more of a headache.
Take an electric screwdriver, unscrew the aluminum front doorsill plates, and pull back the carpet/matting/soundpadding and look at the front floors.
That will tell you if you want to go further.

Then, go to the lower tailgate, unscrew the trim/carpet, and peel it back for a look at the cargo floor and lower hinge area.

Good point, thanks for the advice. Any other things I should look for? I'm not even sure it will crank, I'm going to take a can of gas and some jumper cables. If it's not rusted out, and I can get the price to next to nothing, all I need it to do is run far enough to get it on a trailer.
If not rusty, I figured a $500 gamble could be with it?

Yep, just talked to the woman. If it wasn't rusty it was a good deal. Keep looking...who got it??
