1995 RR Classic SWB

1995 Alpine White RR Classic SWB

I am the second owner. It has been in my possession, in Maryland, since late 2006. It spent the vast majority of its former life in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, with a short interlude in NJ and then finally in Atlanta, where I bought the truck from the original owner after a long and careful search. It has been the best and most reliable Rover that I’ve owned. Truck purchased with 121K miles as a third vehicle. It now has 134K and, in the five years that I’ve owned the truck, it has had just about every conceivable service, upgrade, and maintenance item addressed. It remains rust-free and, to be frank, it is rarely driven. All services were performed in advance of any failures.
  • 134k miles
  • all service records from Day 1
  • mechanically excellent, most services during my ownership completed by Paul Warren of British Classic Car Doctors in Upperville, VA
  • Waxoyled frame, frame interior, undercarriage and body panels (2007 & 2009)
  • heated windshield/front and rear side glass good - no cracks. One small chip in windshield from previous owner. Chip has not changed in size or shape. Windshield passed Maryland inspection in 2007.
  • rust-free tailgate lid
  • Initially replaced air suspension with OME coils in late 2006. Truck now has Rovertym HD 2” springs/Bilstein shocks. Additional Rovertym 1/2 inch spacer under rear spring perch
  • Double-carden rear driveshaft, no vibrations
  • ARB non-winch front bumper
  • LT230 conversion to replace Borg-Warner transfer case
  • Hella Black Magic (mounted on ARB bumper), rear worklamp, illuminated switches on shifter console
  • Hella 550 fog lights mounted under ARB
  • Britparts aluminum front skid-plate
  • Odyssey battery and new gear reduction starter
  • OEM low-profile roof rack with Thule-compatible crossbars and rear basket
  • new distributor with remote-mounted ignition amplifier
  • braided stainless steel oil cooler lines
  • all window switches work, also have spares on hand
  • Simple but useful Garmin gps (not hard-wired) on shifter console
  • Seat heaters work
  • Harmon Kardon six speaker + subwoofer system w/ stock 6-disc changer purchased in 2007
  • Tan leather interior (no rips - minor wear on driver’s seat, front seat bottoms were replaced by previous owner)
  • Sunroof works w/ no problems, gasket replaced in 2007, no leaks
  • CB installed inside center console glove box
  • Dunlop Radial Rover 245/75r16's, practically brand new, including full-size spare on matching TWR aluminum rim, seatbelt reel location modified so spare fits in stock location
  • Seat switches work, driver’s sometimes struggles in moving forward (it’s the ecu, not the switch itself) I replaced the ecu once with a used unit, but I also have my original and now fully-rebuilt-in-England ECU ready to install. Current ecu still works but it’s on its original seat memory battery, which will corrode at some point.
  • Truck does not burn or leak oil or coolant. Steering box (amazingly) does not leak.
  • new hood release cable
  • new injectors
  • new headgasket and timing chain
  • Amsoil fluids in front & rear diffs
  • transmission filiter/fluid (Amsoil) replaced in 2008
Services

11/06 (121K): coil spring conversion to OME medium duty springs
Front & Rear Rotors & Pads
Serpentine belt

01/07 (122K): sunroof seal replaced

11/07 (124K): all hoses replaced, thermostat & coolant changed

01/08 (125K): LT230 conversion

08/08 (127K): Install Rovertym 2-inch springs, replace y-pipe & 02 sensors

09/08 (128K): replace tie-rod ends; replace injectors and install double-carden rear driveshaft

09/09 (131K): a/c recharge

12/09 (132K): replace seat ecu with used unit, send original unit for re-build at Avilec Ltd.

07/10 (132K): replace starter with high-torque, gear reduction unit

03/10 (132K): replace hood cable

12/10 (133K): replace fuel pump & sending unit

03/10 (133K): replace head gaskets, timing chain, transmission cooling lines, new distributor and battery





The bad:
  • I think the previous owner said that the cruise control did not work; I’ve never tried using it
  • I rarely use the key fob and alarm. Both work, but not well in my opinion so I just use the key in the driver’s door, which controls all of the locks, including the rear liftglass.
  • some plastic trim pieces are brittle or broken; all are in place, just not 100%.
  • headliner is original, does not droop but is festooned with Discovery headliner plugs
  • only sign of rust is a small, surface-only strip on driver’s floorboard, remnants from water that was trapped under the heavy rubber mat following what must have been a windshield leak from previous owner.
  • y-pipe has a large hose clamp around one cat to quiet a slight heat shield rattle that was apparent from the moment it was installed, matrix is completely solid

Price:
  • $8,200, additional photos upon request

Some additional photos. Any discoloration under truck is mud, not rust. Stickers on back are magnets and not adhered to paint. With regard to headgasket, truck never overheated. Gaskets had seeped oil since 90K, according to p.o.'s service records.

No, not Linden. I live near River Rd & the Beltway, off Burdette. Photos of truck were taken at my parent's place in Middleburg, VA, where I've had the Rover parked while we've been renovating our home.

Rover 4x4: I've had "regrettable" Rovers before, in particular a 92 Classic. I know the drill on that. Bet your Hunter is is nowhere near as bad as my 92. It was so bad that once i decided to make a clean break with it, I couldn't in good conscience sell it as a reliable vehicle to anyone directly. I let it go off to Manheim for a pittance, where I was glad to hear a knowledgeable fellow bought it, knew what he had, and proceeded to cut it up into a trail rig.

Most common question so far: Why am I selling? Because I simply don;t drive it and can;t justify the space in the driveway or monthly check to Chubb. Or, in a slightly different but equally applicable interpretation, my wife has "mentioned" that in the wake of our semi ill-timed renovation and crowded driveway at least one of the rovers needs to go.

My Hunter was damn near perfect, I really like this truck though.
