Mileage: 84,059 miles (and counting)

Location: Atlanta, GA

I’ve owned Buster for 4 years and unfortunately he’s no longer practical for me. So he’s up for sale. He is an original 1985 vehicle, so almost 30 years old and showing his age. He runs fine, but there’s always something that needs fettling, so he’s not for the faint of heart! He has a clear Georgia title (and was titled in Washington State before that). I have an extensive set of documentation for him.

Original petrol 3.5L V8 engine backed by the LT-95 four-speed manual gear box / transfer case. Right hand drive. Solid exhaust system and brakes. Power assisted steering. Tow bar with removable and adjustable hitch.

He does have a tendency to run hot (at least according to the Rover gauges), but has never actually overheated, even when commuting through Atlanta’s rush-hour traffic in August. Needle just goes up to about the ¾ mark and sits there.

Work I’ve completed since purchasing 4 years ago (beside regular oil changes):

2013

· DieHard Platinum battery (the rebadged Odyssey)

2012

· Headlight relay harness (so those nice new switches mentioned below shouldn’t burn out any time soon)
· Indicator Switch cluster (PRC3875)
· Headlight Switch cluster (PRC3430)
· Ignition coil (8510047G)
· Distributor rotor arm (RTC3618) and Lucas cap (STC8368G)
· V8 Alternator (RTC5086E)
· Kingsborne 8mm ignition wire set (IGN 785)
· NGK 7333 spark plugs
· Heavy-duty RovingTracks Steering Tie Rod and Drag Link
· Replaced several cracked side and stop lamps
· LED bulbs in dash instruments and side / tail lights

2011

· Front wing top chequer plate
· Terrafirma Rock Sliders (TF 810) (with tree bar). Bar painted with bed liner. Replaced all the shoddy hardware that came with them with stainless.
· New ball joints in steering linkages
· Disco2 front spring isolators
· Terrafirma Tubular front shock turrets (TF504)
· Renewed any shock absorber guide washers that needed it
· Terrafirma Rear heavy duty spring retainers (TF507)
· Terrafirma Rear shock mounts (TF512)
· Terrafirma 2” Suspension kit (springs and shocks) (TF206)
· Rear step (BA172)
· Bed liner in rear cargo area and also some front panels (as and when I had to remove them)

2010

· Rebuilt the pitman arm ball joint (kit RBG000010 / STC3295)
· Orange Polybush kit for all suspension arm bushings
· Rear brake shoes (STC 2797)
· Alternator drive belt
· Power steering pump drive belt
· Top and lower radiator hoses
· Heater hoses
· Crankshaft oil seal replaced
· Oil pan dropped and resealed
· Drained and refilled Diffs (Valvoline 80W 90)

The good:

· Roof rack and ladder included – has full-length tread-plate decking on the rack
· Rear doors looks like it was a new replacement
· K&N intakes rather than the old oil bath
· Electric fan
· Battery isolator switch
· Salisbury rear axle
· Steering guard

The bad:

· Seats are tatty and tired, but serviceable
· Doors (except for the rear) are rotted out at the base, but perfectly serviceable
· Frame looks largely solid but at least one of the outriggers has holes that would need welding up if you were intending to seriously offroad the vehicle. Holes have been treated with Rust Bullet to stop any further corrosion
· Bulkhead is starting to show some rust holes around the hinges
· Spare tire on the roof rack is dry-rotted and needs replacing
· 12 foot paint job (looks great from 12 feet away)
· Axle dust covers are cracking and will need replacement at some stage
· LT-95 is seeping a little oil, but not enough to cause stains where parked
· CD player is so old it doesn’t even have a Mic socket!
· Definitely has a few dents and dings to prove his 29 years of age. Adds character!
· Door locks probably work. But I’ve not used them since I originally purchased Buster. What’s the point of locking him?
· The after-market spotlights on the front grill guard are not wired up and I have no idea if they work or not
· No A/C (other than the standard Rover “two flaps under the windscreen" setup. Which is surprisingly effective, but don’t expect to sit in icy cold comfort)

I’ll include some of the take-off parts as spares, such as the original steering tie rod and drag link, rod ends, some new and old side/marker lights, as well as other items like oils, greases, etc., I have lying around.

Throw a couple of Labradors and a brace of pheasant in the back and you’re ready to conquer the Highlands (Virginia Highlands, that is).

If you’d like more details / pictures please drop me an email. ian.anderson @ hexagongeospatial.com

Thanks 1of40. I've always considered Land Rovers to be males. Their eagerness to mark their territory seems to support this.

Cheers

New Price, New Pics

New Price: $14,250

I was asked for some additional pictures so thought I might as well go ahead and post them.

Turns out the door bottoms weren't as bad as I had previously thought. When I came to photograph them only the front passenger door is rotted out at the bottom. The others aren't too bad. See pics below.

$14,250

Bump and reminder that price was reduced to $14,250 (not being able to edit the original post is a pain). Any reasonable offer will be considered.

Cheers
