Testing the waters - 1996 Disco 1, R380, TDi

I can provide more pictures later (currently covered in snow) but this post is to declare "The Duchess" for sale.

1996 NAS Disco 1 SE7
Power everything, which all works except the passenger seat forward/backward adjustment - I never bothered sourcing a new switch for it.
7 seater with rear jumpseats and rear A/C (rear A/C needs new lines, they are currently capped off - front A/C blows very cold)
300TDi - PA Title states diesel (THIS IS HUGE)
Block heater
Detroit Rear (with hardened shafts)
Trutrac front
411 diffs, with a front Diffguard.
R380 transmission

Recent engine work (done by Trevor at British 4x4 and some by me) includes:
Trevor's once-over last year
New Lift pump
New Vaccum pump
New P-gasket
New Overflow tank/hoses/cap
New Battery

Manual switch for the A/C fans (can now switch on for additional cooling without having the A/C on)

Neoprene front seat covers
Dual sunroofs
ARB bumper
Warn Winch
SD roof rack
Rear ladder
Hella lights on the rack
Hella amber fog lights on the bumper (thanks Susquehanna Motor sports for finding these)
235/85R16 Federal couragia mud tires with full sized matching spare
2nd set of 235/85R16 rims/tires can be included (4 steels rims + dunlop AT's)
OME suspension (I believe its about a 3" lift)
New custom exhaust from the down-pipe back.
New Kenwood stereo with USB and Bluetooth (both handsfree and streaming)

I'm sure there is more to add but I wanted to start getting a feeler out there. Asking $18K OBO, open to trades, other offers, etc

This is a rare configuration stateside, SE7 + 5-speed and TDi. Gets great fuel economy.
I've used it on the trails, as a Daily driver, going to the beach, a real head turner.

Very, very cool truck. Had the pleasure of doing a 35-mile trail ride with it (or at least it seemed that way) at Conclave. Nice pic, too!
GLWS, Danny. The "diesel" statement on the title will be worth quite a bit if it's transferable.

Thanks buddy. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be. It came to me with an out of state title with fuel type as Diesel too.

Good luck again!

Sorry I had momentarily forgotten meeting you when we were airing back up after Conclave.

Someone is going to be very happy, this truck is great.

Great truck and Danny's a hell of a good man. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a vehicle from him.

Lets just say I have an idea that I'm trying to swing... (yes it involves another Rover, haha)

The very same, I've fixed a few things and have done a lot of maintenance. I'll sell it with fresh filters and will do another oil change prior to sale. I never got around to replacing the rear A/C lines, that was always on my list.

Danke, but the question is... would I SELL a vehicle to a guy like you? haha

Thanks for the kind words. These guys are right, this is a great truck, I'll definitely miss it.

Bump, please feel free to ask any questions.

I'll try to get some more pics posted (supposed to snow tomorrow, not the best day to wash it) soon.

Yes. It's a nice truck. There has been some serious money spent on maintenance and upgrades by all three owners. Kind of hate to see it for sale even though I sold it three years ago.
