I am looking for some assistance in pricing my wife's 1992 Range Rover Classic to be sold. It just turned 20,000 miles from new and looks it inside, outside, and under the hood. She bought it new from Pioneer Center in Denver, Colorado. It is Portofino Red with Beige leather. We have all of the books, records, many spare parts, even the original window sticker. It has always been garaged, the paint is original, we had all of the engine gaskets replaced when it was under warranty, so it has never leaked fluids like so many Classics. The original Michelins have been replaced with new proper Michelins. This is the proverbial clean, one-owner vehicle, with never any rust or body damage. Even the muffler is original to the vehicle. It came from the factory with a Great Divide Edition bumper and rear taillight guards, both painted body color. At original purchase, the front valance with fog lights was added. Everything works on this vehicle.

Thanks, in advance, for your assistance.

Nice truck! I can't help by throwing out a number, but with that low mileage and in such pristine condition, I am sure it will fetch a large amount.

By the way, I saw your post that included the pic of the 1995 RR County your wife bought new. That's one lucky wife!

My 95LWB sold for just over $21000 with 30K miles on it. Dumbest thing I ever did was sell that one. You are in a specialty range at this condition and mileage with full history. This is where you stick a ridiculous price on it and see if someone bites. Chances are they will.

Thanks for the positive compliments, but I still need some assistance. If we priced this somewhere in the $33,000 to $35,000. range, would that be realistic?

I'd say you have to start somewhere in pricing
And if it's as nice as it sounds
You will get some hits

I saw my local dealer priced a 1995 defender at $45k and it sold in a weeks time. A good estimate is ask your dealer the trade in value and add $10k from that price to get a good estimate of your retail value.

The classics aren't as in demand as the defenders, but you should be able to get a good price if it is as good as it looks... a defender with comparable amazing condition might be over $100k... so doesn't seem like +/- $30k is out of the realm of possibility... what have you got to lose really... if it doesn't sell you can either keep it or lower the asking price.

linuxfreakus is right about the difference in Defender and RRC pricing in the states, especially NAS Defenders. You can't really compare Defender pricing in the states to RRCs.

However, you have less than 25k miles, you're the original owner, GDE bits, etc. I'd say 33-35 is a good reserve price. Auction it, see what offers you receive. If they're below 33, hold on to it. Unless you need the cash, your rig is too nice to let go for below 33. The other thing to try might be consign it to a specialist dealer like Copely.

What an amazing time capsule!!!

I'd recommend finding a good automotive photographer and paying him/her a few hundred bucks to do a detailed high quality photoshoot. If I were still in the PNW, I'd offer to photograph it.

Also, since you're in Idaho, contact Maximilian Monahan at Sun Valley Auto Club. He's a good guy and specializes in this type of rare find.

As others have said, you're easily in the $38k-$45k range with this truck. Thanks for sharing it with us!

stick it on ebay. it'll sell. thats where i sell the ones i fix up.

Just picked up a 1989 County with 64K miles on it. Has some electrical gremlins inside. I'm fixing those right now.

Unfortunately the roof is oxidized pretty bad. But the rest is okay. Seats and interior are pretty nice. Zero rust on it.

Are you able to make some money or is a hobby with as breaking even proposition?

The 1 or 2 descent RRC that show up for sale around here are typically expensive.

I do this as a business full time. But I also resell discos and classics. I'm going to start doing defenders soon.

This is what my business partner and I have been getting into for the last 2 years.

I still think you're underselling it .............. why not start at 35 and that gives you room to barter down towards 28-30k?
