This is an auction for my rare, unique and essentially fully restored 1981 2-door Range Rover. Note that I added this as a 1980 with no VIN as for some reason Ebay doesn't recognize the VIN (but it is a valid VIN that is fully and legally registered in the state of California, and I have the California title in hand: SALLHABV2AA112973) This Rover was imported into the U.S. when new, from Belgium (LHD model) and federalized at the same time. The earliest records I have indicate it lived in Georgia from 1995, then was brought to Southern California sometime between then and 2006. After its restoration from 2006-2008, it received its BAR (Bureau of Automotive Repair) certification in 2008. The vehicle has a clear California title and registration, and passes smog with flying colors. The Rover also has the jack, a fullsize spare, toolkit, and manual (can't guarantee that the manual is original to this car, but the diagrams seem to depict a European market Rover so it seems like it could be original). Vehicle is always garaged. Note that most of the pictures don't show the Rover fully cleaned up, but I'll likely take it for a wash once the impending rain passes. I plan on getting the car fully detailed for the buyer.
This Rover looks and drives beautifully and has so much character that I know I'll regret trying to sell it, but we'd like to downsize / simplify our lives and as such I'm putting this Rover up for sale. When I bought the vehicle (from Southern California), I jumped right in it and drove up the coast along Highway 1 quite possibly one of the best / funnest roadtrips I've taken, and in large part because of this Rover. Driving it never fails elicit a smile. It has been taken on one dirt road during my ownership (and a mild one at that) but never tested on rocks / etc. as I have another Rover for that. During the time I've owned it, this Rover has been a 3rd / 4th car, and so hasn't gotten the use it deserves. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about the Rover or if you want any additional pictures. If you're interested in an inspection at your expense, I am happy to bring it to a nearby shop of your choice (I can recommend a good shop that I use for all of my Rovers in San Francisco). Also happy to work with shippers, as long as the buyer makes the appropriate arrangements. Happy to schedule a showing if you would like to see the Rover. I have set a fair reserve that is not far above the starting bid. Non-refundable deposit due within 2 days of winning the auction, and payment via wire transfer or cashier's check. Vehicle may also be listed locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early.
