Highest Mile RRC?

This maybe the most miles I've seen on an RRC... Anyone know of others that have gone over 300k?

I met a guy in England back in 1978 that had over 325,000 miles on a 1970 Range Rover - and unbelievably the heads had never been off! He said that regular oil and coolant changes was the key to long life of his 3.5 V-8.

I have 187k on a 91 RRC which I guess in comparison is just broken in according to these guys. I'm hoping for the best though, keeping my maintanace a top priority

One of my '89's had 236k when the odometer stopped working which was before I bought it. I probably only put about 5k miles on it before I parted it out.

A good friend of mine has over 260K on his '95 SWB.
STill a dd, but he's had a built up 4.6 ready to drop in for 2 years now so he's going to pull the 3.9 and replace the whole drivetrain/convert to LT230.
The truck is in great condition.

No way to tell on either of my '88s. Could be 50k or 250k. Odometers have either stopped or changed.

236 or so on LWB, the engine was completely worn out. Rebuilt and hopefully will last another 200k

I saw an 1988 Classic with just over 500K and the original motor. It was very nice.

My rust-less 92 with over 210k, a still strong 3.9, now with a 230 to replace the BW broken at the first VOT, and much of the Rovertym stuff from my D1 ( which was at 185k).

I've been watching it on eBay. Had a bin of $560 and was very tempted, but then someone bid $500. What an a$$hat! $60? Really?
