My new convertible 1989 Range Rover Classic

Picked up this beauty out in the backwoods. Minor body damage from a DUI rollover. We removed the roof and straightened all the body work, now it's near perfect.

I just have to replace a tranny cooler line and the fuel pump relay and it'll run nicely. (We had it running briefly with 12v applied directly to fuel pump)

It has a 2" lift, 285/75R16 MTR's, brush guard, 9k Chicago Electric winch, red Land Rover bottle Jack, and generic hi-lift jack. Came with extra coils and 2 Rancho shocks.

In Oregon I think you only have to have windshield wipers to be legal, so we're good to go. (They work)

I'm hoping for an award at the All British Field Meet.

I also found almost $3 in change in it while vacuuming glass and removing beer bottles.

@ this stage you might as well go on and pull the body off and make a buggy. Its a lot easier then sorting through all that messed up old metal. Just start with some fresh tube. Good luck

Turns out the FP wiring runs through the roof with all the other rear-end wiring. I fished the wires out of the roof and soldered them all back together!

The Rover got a fancy paint job and served as a tour vehicle at Northwest Mogfest. It performed excellently, once the leaking fuel tank was replaced with a 3 gallon boat tank and external inline fuel pump! Hahaha.
