96' Discovery SD - 5-speed - Willow

96' 5-speed Discovery SD - willow green

Vehicle was bought to restore or use for the 5-speed parts but I'm not going to get around to it. It is a willow green SD without sunroofs and a tan cloth interior. 117k miles. The 5-speed transmission and transfer case are flawless. I had a 96' with less miles and this one shifts even better. No slop whatsoever in the drivetrain, making this a pretty rare find. It is was not titled because I planned on using it for parts, but I could title it if need be.

The only real issue is some rust, but it is completely driveable. The truck comes from CT (entire life there, 2 owner bought from Farmington Valley LR) so there is the ususal body and frame rust. The chassis is great on one side but the other chassis rail has holes. Body has rust in the usual areas but fixable as well. It is running and driving (battery needs a jump right now). Body panels in great shape, interior in fair condition, but mechanically and electrically, it is very sound- very smooth and tight driver. Steering is tight and smooth. Everything works (alarm, locks, windows, wipers, original stereo, heat/fan, etc.). Key remotes are missing. Engine runs fine. Needs rear exhaust work. Previous owner said it has never been off the road and it appears that way.

This is a perfect parts truck if you've always wanted a 5-speed, or very suitable for restoration. The running gear is excellent. Vehicle is located in western Massachusetts. $1500.

Dave-
Good to see you on the forums & still in the Rover game. Good luck with sale.

For others interested, Dave sold me my current Disco (also a 96 5 speed) and is a stand up guy in all counts. Totally forthcoming with the good and the bad; you can expect to get a vehicle as described without any surprises. The truck he sold me with 82k on it is still doing very well-due in no small part to his meticulous maintenance-at 110k.
r-
Ray

Thanks Ray. It's nice to know it went to a good home. I saw your thread on ExPo- the truck looks excellent. I like what you've done to it.
