FIRST SEEN IN UNCRATE MAGAZINE
Often referred to as the "Soft Dash" Range Rover Classic, this model was the first year with airbags, but the last year for the sought-after boxy design and circle headlights. The LWB stands for Long Wheelbase, which basically means the backseat legroom is King-level. As it's still known today, this SUV was not only as capable as anything offroad with full-time 4WD, it also sat atop the luxury heap — hell, it was the luxury heap 20 years ago. Powered by a 4.2L V8, the LWB Range we acquired is sporting an Avalon Blue exterior, leather everywhere, burled walnut throughout, power everything, and a Harman Kardon sound sytem. When looking for your own, just know you'll probably have to replace the air suspension and a drooping headliner. But also know you'll have the most vintage-looking SUV to ever come with a safety restraint system. Handsome, but safe. Just like what your mom saw in your dad.
If you're interested in buying the Range Rover above, as seen in last year's Issue 00 of Uncrate magazine, get in touch. We got it in Boulder in 2014, and even though it's having its 20th anniversary this year, it's still got less than 90,000 miles on it and drives great. An excellent specimen.
