Vehicle Name The Ghost of Lucky
Year 1994
Make Land Rover
Model RR LWB
Color Alpine White
1994 Land Rover RR LWB
1994 Land Rover RR LWB 1994 Land Rover RR LWB
History Bought from seller in So.Cal. when living in OK at the time. Vehicle had a blown 4.2 engine, yet, body, etc. perfect. Right after RR arrived via truck, the next week we moved to Brasil. Had the RR send up to ECR where it sat for about 6 years. Had a ECR restored 109 at the time and then had to move to Switzerland. The 109 would not make it through Swiss inspection so sold it and had ECR refurb the Rangie which is now in Switzerland with us cruising the Alps.
Exterior
Alpine white

Interior
Saddle leather transfered from the 93LWB which was also at ECR from a crash

Wheel and Tire
Std Cyclones with 265/75-16 GY MTRs

Under the Hood
RPI 4.6

Suspension
2" lift OEM springs - Bilstein shocks

Other
Euro turn signals/light indicators up front.
Rear turn signal lens wired to include rear fog light indicator. Basically as stock as possible to get registered / inspected in Switzerland which was a bitch.

How was that done? I'd like to do this on my Hunter as we occasionally have heavy fog on the mountain nearby.

Very nice RRC, BB.

Many thx folks, yet, as new to this site didn't realize it was going to be a thread.

We have had many Rovers around the world:

1. First Rover was a 95 D90SW in the US
2. Followed that with a 93 RR LWB as its stable mate in the US
3. Moved to Japan and had a 96 LHD D1
4. Back to the US and ECR restored a NADA 1967 109 for us - Blueboy - sold the D90
5. Crashed (not my fault) the 93 RR and shipped it to ECR for parts
6. 109 P/U which we wanted to restore and never got around to it - now sold
7. Then in Brasil with a 2001 110 which was made in Brasil plant - never leaked a drop of water inside
8. Back to the US and had the 109 as the main Rover
9. Moved to Switzerland where the 109 never would have been allowed so sold it and the 109 P/U and focused on the 94 Rangie

The 109 was the coolest Rover, the 110 the one in which saw a lot of Brasil, Argentina, Chile, the D1 in Japan was just nuts, the D90 was the first love, and the Rangies the most all round Rovers.

@Nomar - have no idea how ECR did it. Had to have it though to pass Swiss inspections so it can be done. Think they bought a new Euro rear light as that was done for the frt. as well.

@Bill - will try and take some interior shots this weekend although the weather is suppose to suck so we shall see. Inside not as clean as outside as sat outside for 6 years.

Thx again for the kind words.

@Nomar-the first light aux switch turns on the frt fogs. The second light aux switch then controls the rear fog light. It needs to have its own switch as you only use the rear fog when it's really thick at night. Hope that helps some.

Want to give many kudos to Mr. Smith and the gang at ECR for their efforts in making this Rangie happen. It took 3 RRs to assemble the Ghost as well as the many hours Mike spent sourcing parts literally around the world. Plus assisting with shipping it over to Switzerland and making sure it was packed right in the can so no harm came to it enroute. We get a real kick driving it in the Alps especially in Italy where you can still off-road. The avatar is on Hannibal's trail in Italy.

Thx. That is also an interesting story. However, the digital pics hide some of the horizontal cracks. Not too bad, yet, they are there. It isn't as perfect as it looks. It is pretty good though considering it is original.

Thx Doug. We really are enjoying the beast over here although the thirst of the 4.6 does make one cringe a little when filling up. The RRCs do tick most of the boxes though and having one in Europe is very cool as most have just rusted away. We are also very lucky the LR dealer has taken a likening to it and goes out of their for maintenance. Helps there are many Defenders running around as well

------ Follow up post added July 25th, 2014 07:14 PM ------

And thx folks for the compliments. Yeah, it goes back with us for sure.
