This is an exceptionally clean, 1995 Range Rover County SWB – the last and best year of the ‘Classic’ body style. The vehicle has been in California its entire life and is extra clean inside and out. With less than 107,900 miles from new – this vehicle has had a steady stream or Land Rover Center and Independent Land Rover service and maintenance to keep it running in tip-top condition. The air suspension has been converted to springs and shocks (Old Man Emu) – which incorporates a 1 5/8 inch body lift. This mild lift creates a great look, adds additional ground clearance and provides extra room for the new 265/75 – 16 Nitto Terra Grappler AT radial tires. They ride and handle great, are quiet and give the vehicle a great look. The tires do not rub, however I did have the steering stops adjusted slightly.
The car has power windows, power locks, power glass sunroof, cold air conditioning, cruise control, SRS dual airbags, tilt steering wheel, Premium harmon/kardon 160-watt audio system with 8 channels and 9 speakers which includes both cassette tape player and the optional 6-disc changer. The Straight Grain Walnut Wood Trim and Sorrell Tan Leather Upholstery are both (nearly) perfect (…really, look closely at the pictures), the headliner is nice and clean and the carpets are in great condition. Genuine Land Rover rubber floor mats are also included – they look great and protect the interior floors well. The Alpine White paint is in excellent shape and the body is clean. The Range Rover includes the original books, extensive service records, rear load space / dog guard, roof cross bars, and two functioning keyless entry remotes.
Printed Land Rover information reveals the Manufactures Suggested List Price for a Short Wheel Base County Classic was $45,000 + the optional 6 disc CD changer. USA sales in of the 1995 County were 5655, with the SWB model being quite rare. The engine is the strong and reliable 3.9 liter V8 Buick/Rover motor with 182 bhp and 232 lb. ft. of torque. In an effort to curb oil leaks, I had the front crankshaft seal replaced and am happy report this Range Rover County does not leak oil. This was important to me and I am happy with the result.
This Range Rover starts easily, runs smooth, steers straight, and stops well. The wheel alignment is dead straight, and the vehicle is tight and strong. I took the car in for service in early October for an oil & filter change and a few minor repairs. It currently does not need anything.
The only items on the car that do not function are the Auto-Dimming rear view mirror, it no longer auto-dims…, and the heated front seats. I looked into repairing the heated seats and was informed they need new heating seat elements – which would need to be replaced by splitting open the leather seats. The seats are perfect and I did not want to split the seams to replace the heating elements. While the body is virtually dent free, the roof top has a few minor dents (I guess from carrying cargo or a bike?). The dents could be repaired by a dent removal specialist, but the original headliner would need to be dropped and I did not want to disturb that. There is also a small dent in left rear D-pillar / black vinyl trim area. The windshield also has a small chip or two, but they are not in the drivers sight line. All this stuff is very minor, and communicated in a effort to describe the vehicle as honestly as possible. This Range Rover Class is truly in amazing overall condition. It drives excellent and looks outstanding.

Because I am a dealer I am required to collect sales tax & registration fees if the vehicle is delivered in California (driven in California). If you are from another state outside of California, taxes and registration fees are your responsibility, in your location, and I will need to ship the car to you – or at least across the state line. I require a Bill of Lading from a license carrier – to prove the vehicle was shipped out of state. (These are not my rules – call me to discuss this if necessary).
