Craigslist Crapshoot

The World’s Worst Car Is For Sale On Craigslist
Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. 
AMG makes hot Benzes hotter, and last week we were hot on the trail of some hot AMGs. We’ll have a look at the one that got us the most hot and bothered in a sec, but first this week’s challenge.
Last week the very last Land Rover Defender rolled off the assembly line in Solihull bring to an end its 7-decade reign as Britain’s most iconic off-roader. Let’s celebrate that accomplishment this week by finding the best – and most interesting – of Land Rover’s products presently offered for sale. Range Rovers and LR2s count too!
As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Since we’ve changed commenting systems, you may need to update your commenter account. Make sure you have a Disqus account – they’re free and easy to get – and then comment away.

Got that? Good, now lets take gander at the badass’est Benz.

As was discovered by many of you last week, the specific level of AMG-ness in many Benz’s can vary substantially. That ranged in our pursuit from the simple inclusion of AMG wheels on this 1997 E420 found by Lokki, all the way up to the balls-out-ness of this 300 SEL 6.3 AMG tribute located by Manic_King.
Our winner fell right in the middle of those extremes. This 1995 AMG W124 may not be the wildest, nor at over $111,000 is it the best priced, but as Rover 1, who found it notes, it seems “well worth it.”
Congrats to Rover 1, and thank you all for participating in our weekly trifle.

    This one’s already sold, but the ad isn’t down yet: 1974 109” Defender, 70k km, 3500$. Imported from Lebanon to Norway in 1996.
    Also, I feel the urge to post an antidote: Basically rust-free, 1993 Camry wagon high miler with fresh tech inspection, 2200$.

      Pretty sweet Camry. Did I just type that?! Cheap and useful.

        You are forgiven for choosing the smart way out of today’s crapshoot. At least it’s not beige or silver.

          Yep, could be mistaken for a Ferrari wagon in that color. In fact fender badges might be in order.

    1997 Range Rover for $800… best of all, it’s immune to head gasket failure, as they’ve already been removed!

      Well you sir found the most perfect LeMons car.

        A chopped, channeled “Race Rover” would look pretty sweet, and if nothing else could probably contend for IoE…

    This ’86 Defender is pretty damn sweet.
    1986 Land Rover Defender 90 – $15900

      More Craigslist ads need to feature the combination of phrases “still has the grenade launchers” and “trade for backhoe.”

      1. Vairship Avatar

        Makes you wonder what led him to think he won’t need the grenade launchers on his new backhoe?!?

    I propose this Land Rover Freelander as a candidate for most interesting, because, as a running example, this is probably one of the rarest Land Rovers out there. As a side note, I had a friend who bought one of these new, sold it 45 days later, and still absolutely refuses to talk about the whole affair.

    This ’73 is the only interesting one in NE Ohio. The owner shows $9K in the ad, but states in the text they will only take a vehicle in trade.
