Up for bid on Ebay is Mr. Spock's 1994 Range Rover Classic 4.2 L County LWB.Used when the Transporter was down for repairs.

 

 This model is  a "Classic" or "RRC" . Coil conversion. It is the LWB County model, in Brooklands Green, with Creme leather interior. Has hard cargo cover, its not in photo. The odometer is currently at 80K-driven daily so expect maybe 80,400  during the next 10 days., which is low for this year of the RRC. Condition excellent. Original Owner a celebrity-and no expense spared.

Great vehicle, very well maintained, everything in great shape except: no cruise control, side view mirror manual, bumper windshield washer cracked-have a new one,  rear chrome bumper has a slight dent, and skylight cover fabric in interior has just come unglued so I have not reglued it but just keep it open or mostly half way until fixed. cosmetic only. 15 yo truck, great shape! Original owner Actor/Photographer: Leonard Nimoy (yes-that one!) from Beverly Hills CA. Original 94 Sales Invoice for $56,765.00, manual and all records with extensive work and documentation since new. Original owners manual and paperwork. 1 fob w/ key  and extra key. Original miles, very rare condition and maintained with no expense spared with all owners. Second and third owners were from same family and I bought it from second brother.

Exceptional condition body, electrically and mechanically.AC just recharged works well.The wood is all in great shape, and could easily be refinished.  The headliner is recently replaced for new at a cost of $300-400. The radio has been replaced with a nice new Pioneer unit that is black with mild green display w/aux ipod ready! Very tasteful to original design. All of the 5.25' speakers have been replaced with Pioneer units.  All of the components of the stock ADS system are all there (sub, amp, CD changer) but I did not rewire the whole thing.  Exterior - they are VERY minor scratches, One tiny ding by dr.door key slot.Also, there is what appears to be a repair in the front passenger door, but looking down the body you can see some slight curving in the door that should not be there, no scratches.

Trailer hitch hookup!.The top of the RRC has been coated in Herculiner (polymer bed coating with UV protectant,  Body repainted in orig.color, looks great, see pics. Lower front bumper grill pushed where original brush guard installed, not very noticeable-only if you bend down and look for it because it is low and black.Mechanical :GREAT!. Extensive amount of work and improvement in this area.  Oil change w/ rotate tires within last month, Everything works reliably well.  Short List: Door handle repaired, All handles work as intended. New steering damper, (steering straight for a Rover), recent new starter, AC compressor, front brakes. 

Have a new coil not put in yet just for routine maint, not needed though.. New wires and plugs recently. Starts up every time.Also, she has just had a head gasket service by a great experienced mechanic with Rovers at a price of $2300. She has great compression and burns no oil. Transmission service, radiator flush, Bilstein coil-over conversion, recent radiator, newer stainless OEM exhaust, new Uniroyal A/T tires (under 8K with many of the rubber nubbins still attached), and new mud flaps Electrical – No issues, seat hard wired due to seat battery being dead. Works fine w/no memory seat and side view mirror is manual now. Excellent condition-However, she isn't a garage queen. Driven daily except weekends, the way they should be to keep everything working..

See it on Ebay
