In 1967 the Land Rover company brought to us a radial new idea of how a 4×4 should be made. Engineers Spencer King and Gordon Bashford set about designing a luxury Land Rover estate car, leveraging a V8 engine and based on a 100″ wheelbase chassis. Rover needed something to compete with Jeep and its ever growing fan base. Several years later, the very first Range Rover went into production as a 2-door 1970 model. It was rugged, raw, quite vertical and would set the evolutionary design in motion with its raised wing bulges on the bonnet and floating roof line. The model would evolve through vinyl and plastic to updated improved trim inside and out over time. This marque lineup though wouldn’t show up in North America for another 17 years. It was then that LRNA officially introduced the Range Rover to the U.S. market in 1987 at the LA Auto Show and went on sale in March of the same year.
In 1993, the LWB was introduced along with the electronic air suspension (EAS). In 1995, the Range Rover received a major interior ‘upgrade’ from a hard dash with a rather quirky, yet endearing, layout, to a more modernized ‘soft dash’ with dual air bags. The ’95 soft dash has seen a large market uptick in the last few years as it is the final year of the original Range Rover. The LWB provides and additional 10″ over the SWB, all devoted to rear seat passenger leg room. The RRC was the first to have command seating, the driver sits above the window ledges for improved visibility. The rear passengers benefit from stadium seating also providing improved viewing. The Range Rover was changed mid-year to the P38 style, running through the 2002 MY. These Classics are truly iconic to the brand and finally starting to see the appreciation they deserve in the collector car world.
Up for auction is this 1995 Range Rover Classic in the desirable British Racing Green with approximately 145k miles since new. It retains all of its originality, save the aftermarket radio, including what appears to be the original Michelin ice spike spare tire and accompanying tool kit. This one is a great starter truck for someone looking to get into the rising market for Classics. It ships from Pennsylvania with a clean clear title in the seller’s name.

The BRG paint is believed to be original with some touch ups in various places. We do not see evidence of losing clear coat and the seller reports all to be in good shape with. The roof top does appear to be faded with some bumps and bruises typical of these trucks. The original front lip is still intact which is always good to see. The chrome looks to be in good shape and no significant scratches or dents stand out to us. The rear arches and door bottom sills have been previously repaired/painted most likely due to rust forming in those areas. The rear tailgate looks solid without any immediate evidence of rust showing. Some of pictures show a Thule roof rack and the seller is willing to include that if the new owner desires it.
There are some small rust bubbles on the rear hatch, a common thing to see given the metal choice used in OEM. It is fitted with light guards front and rear. The seller reports the hood has been repaired in some small places and shows some cleaned up spots on the front edge. The underside of the truck is said to be in very good condition.
The interior would be Light Stone Connolly leather (paired with the BRG ext color) and presents quite clean and complete. The front and rear seats appear to be in great shape. The seller believes the driver side seat has been redone at some point. Shockingly the speaker covers are still there! A rare sight in these ’95 model year trucks. The headliner is reported to be in very good condition except for the fabric covering the sunroof which has pulled away. The dash is clean with no cracks. The gauges all work and look very good. There is some fading on the ski slope wood around the shifter but we have certainly seen much worse. The carpets look and reportedly feel good. The trunk area is very clean. The tail gate area is good and folds up properly.
The owner retains some of the maintenance records from the prior owner dating back to 2014. It recently passed PA state inspection in April 2019. The tires are very good and proper size for the truck. The front floors plates look to have been replaced. The pans under the battery and the ABS pump have been repaired/replaced. The engine bay has been detailed and looks very clean. The passenger side fog light was recently replaced. It was re-keyed at some time as there are 2 sets of keys which has one key for the locks and another for the ignition. Both sets work well according to the seller. Rust repair is evident but looks to have been well done.

The engine starts up quickly, and reportedly runs smooth with no noises and the 4WD works as it should. We especially like the originality and BRG/light stone combo. This would make a great entry point for someone looking to jump into the rising Classic market without much start up costs.
