Description for Land Rover Range Rover 1992

Somewhat reluctantly listing my 1992 Range Rover Classic (RRC) for sale. The truck is SWB finished in original Westminster Grey paint with grey leather interior. Overall cosmetic condition is good, with wear evident throughout, consistent with a 25 year old PNW utility vehicle with >200k miles. From constantly looking at older Land Rover (RRCs and Discos) on craigslist, I can tell you this one is well above the average ragged out basketcase. I purchased it in January 2016 from the Portland area; previous title was from Seattle. Since then I've done a steady stream of repairs/upgrades and preventative maintenance which is pretty much the way I do it with all my cars. Quality parts and fluids, well researched, no shortcuts. I have used it mostly to run errands around Corvallis, play in the snow, and to get my mountain bike to various valley trailheads.

Good/bad
Here are the high points of this truck: Nice condition overall, but not so nice you can't use it. The common big jobs have been tackled: Heater box rebuild, all new cooling system, fresh headliner, water sealing and rust preventative. Rust situation is either not bad or under control in the common spots. Floorboards are solid (surface & seam rust treated), cargo space has one baseball sized spot that you would call slightly more than surface rust; fully coated in POR15, but otherwise very solid. Tailgates are in good shape. Upgraded headlights, aux power, and work lights for convenience & safety. Modern comforts like keyless and new stereo. Interior in worn but highly presentable shape. Power seats, windows, mirrors all work. Rear wiper works. Basically brand new all terrain tires (full set of 5) in the best size for an RRC - tall and skinny. These are very close in size/appearance to the tires used on camel trophy vehicles. Engine and running gear are strong, no funny noises, good power, rock solid temp gauge, no lights on the dash, etc.
In the interest of full disclosure, here are the low points: Clearcoat on the roof starting to go. D/S front turn signal lens cracked. Interior wood is cracked. Center console window switch panel separated (they all do this). Some cracks in the console hard plastic. Sunroof motor turns but does not actuate anything; glass can be raised/lowered with a screwdriver. Power gas lid pop is missing the actuator (it says closed though). Trip odo stopped turning awhile back. A/C belt not installed. Some rock chips in the windshield. Only a few rear defrost lines work. One of the lock actuators had been intermittent in the summer heat (a new one included with sale). There are more things that aren't perfect; it's a 25 year old classic.
Included extras: Owners manual, bulbs, spare fuses, spare brake switch, and whatever other small parts I have around. Spare (6th) wheel, bent but usable. Original dog guard (rare). Original spare cover and load space cover (rare). Air dam and fog lights (not currently installed). Thule rack not included but available separately for $150. I'm keeping the plates to transfer to another vehicle.
